Pest Control Information
The larger cockroaches that will walk or fly into the house are generally Australian or American roaches. The will come through the smallest gaps flattening themselves to squeeze in.
The roach will find a happy place in your house before it starts to clean itself. This is where the roach begins to die, as it will have already become contaminated from the residual around the skirting boards and kick plates. Roaches like to travel on one surface while touching another surface which makes the skirting boards the ideal space for the chemical zone.
They are generally brought in with packaging and find a home close to food and water. The habitat most preferred will be a small closed in space as German roaches like to be touched on all sides where possible. When the German roach dies, the mature will drop an egg casing. The egg casing will hold anywhere between 20-40 babies which will hatch in approximately 3 weeks. The babies shed their shell 7 times as they grow to full maturity. The first shed is approximately 3 weeks after hatching. Dunrite use a growth regulator when treating German roaches which will stop the babies from shedding, resulting in their doom.
A treatment for German roaches can take up to 6 weeks to effectively work due to the life cycle, egg casing and the shedding habits. You should expect many babies at 3 weeks after treatment. It is best not to mop the floor with any treatment for at least 3 weeks to get the best results.
The Huntsman and the Wolf Spider are NOT webbing spiders. A spider will die if it is treated with chemical. If a spider is a webbing spider, by treating the web, the spider will come in contact with the crystalised chemical and die. If a Huntsman or non webbing spider is to die, it needs to sit on the chemical or be sprayed with the chemical. Often by spraying the garden area and the bushes/shrubs where these spiders often hunt, there is a fair chance of killing them while they are in their environment.
The chemical will last approximately 3 months on the webs.
