Home > Case Studies > Cockroach Infestation In Kitchen
Mr & Mrs V from Wapping, E1 had been out late and returned to their apartment in the early hours of Wednesday morning. Mr V went straight to the bedroom, whilst Mrs V went into the kitchen to get a drink before going to bed. It was then that Mr V heard his wife scream out, so he the ran into the kitchen to see what had upset his wife. By the time he got to the kitchen she as hysterically pointing to a load of bugs scuttling about the kitchen floor.
Mr V wasn’t entirely sure what the beetle type bugs were that had now disappeared under the kitchen units, but he wasn’t to keen to find out. It was then that Mr V gave me an early call at 6am and we arranged an urgent visit.
We understood that it was imperative to attend the site immediately, as the problem needed to be dealt with, from experience we suspected that the beetle type bugs were cockroaches, which breed fast, and can turn into a large infestation.
Having established from Mr V that they couldn’t stay in the apartment as they wouldn’t have slept, so checked into a hotel until they knew the problem was sorted and his wife was enjoying the spa facilities whilst he had come to let me in. Once we had carried out an inspection it was then that the problem was discovered to be much worse than a few cockroaches scuttling around in the early hours. It was quickly determined that the cockroaches had been creating havoc, and when we pulled out the fridge and washing machine you could see that we were now dealing with an infestation.
A gel treatment was required on the hinges of all the cabinets, drawer units and door frames of the kitchen, for the cockroach to feed off and eradicate. A second spray treatment was also carried out to destroy any cockroaches visible on the floor area. Due to the strength of the chemicals used once the treatments are carried out there should be no access to the property for a minimum of 3 hours. As the owners had checked into a hotel this wasn’t an issue, so the treatments were completed that morning. A few days later when Mr & Mrs V were due to return, we contacted Mr V to ensure that the treatment had been successful, he confirmed that they were now cockroach free!
Thanks again for attending the same day and completing the treatment to eradicate the cockroach infestation, I know it was an early call! As you can imagine my wife was distraught and we had booked into a hotel (any excuse!), so it was imperative that the problem was dealt with urgently. Totally professional service, excellent rates, so impressed we have kept your details just in case we have any problems in the future
