  1. You should determine the species of the cockroaches first before applying the insecticide. Doing this can be hard and this is why you need to book the services of a cockroach control expert.
  2. Identify where the cockroaches are hiding. It could be on the cracks and crevices, dustbins, or damp areas in your house.
  3. Ensure that the insecticide you use has been approved as effective by your pest control service provider. Some of the insecticides work by repelling cockroaches rather than eliminating them completely. If you use such insecticides, the cockroaches will vacate to another area in your house.
