Cockroach Control St Albans

EPC Pest Control Services

We specialise in Cockroach Control in St Albans, with over 30 years of experience in the industry we can quickly identify the problem and recommend the best treatment to remove the infestation and deter cockroaches from returning in the future.

Cockroaches normally emerge during the winter as the weather becomes cooler and can be a major problem for both domestic properties and commercial establishments, especially for those in the hospitality sector.

With the potential to contaminate food, bring unsavoury scents and poor hygiene it is important to eradicate a cockroach problem as soon as possible. Cockroaches numbers grow very quickly if left alone and an infestation could severely jeopardise your business reputation.

Distributed in warm, hard to reach places during the day cockroaches are more active during the night entering through cracks around the outside of your building.

Our Treatment Programme

Treatment depends on the size of the infestation and may consist of a range of options including spot treatments and sticky traps. An inspection to identify infestation hotspots and the most effective places for traps is carried out. Placement sites such as underneath equipment, behind counters, in roof spaces, ducting and electrical trunking are common.

Once a cockroach is trapped it releases pheromones which then attract more to the trap. We will return to check on the effectiveness of the traps and replace and re-position as required.

On completion of the treatment our technician will leave a report with you with details of the treatments and recommendations to help prevent further infestations such as improving hygiene standards and removing food and water residues.

Facts About Cockroaches

Cockroach Control St Albans

An adult cockroach is light brown in colour, females are darker than the male and have a broader abdomen.

They have been around since dinosaurs roamed planet earth and are very resilient, able to live without food for a month, without water for a week and can hold their breath under water for 30 minutes which means they will not just go away without help.

Cockroaches cannot fly but they are really fast, their wings are purely to glide or flutter short distances, they are much quicker scurrying around running at speeds up to 1.5 Metres per second!

Problems caused by Cockroaches

Cockroaches can make you very ill, some species carry pathogens associated with diarrhoea and vomiting, both of which can make you feel under the weather. All species carry bacterial substances which we make you feel unwell.

Studies have shown that cockroaches can trigger asthma as well as other allergens when the saliva, faeces and shed body parts are kicked up into the air.

Comments from our customers



Best pest control. Always there to re assure and utmost professionalism.

Used EPC for the first time when they came to deal with mice at 2am and since then I would not use anyone else. Clearly know what they are doing unlike many other companies in this field. Highly recommended.

We had a mouse issue which we were trying to deal with using shop brought products..

The mice just kept eating it, we still had mice for a while until we called EPC, they carried out a treatment and blocked off all areas, great service, no more mice, I would highly recommend to my family and friends

Wow is all I can say, we had Bed Bugs in our property for months, we had a couple of well known companies in to deal with the issue, which they could not do..

They used just chemicals, after talking to EPC about a heat treatment and the treatment involved we went to the extra expense of trying it, at last we can sleep Bed Bug free, it is a bit expensive, but well worth the money when you see what they do, thanks again guys.
