Serving Mercer, Ocean, Monmouth, Middlesex County
When I arrived, the tenant mentioned that she had been seeing German cockroaches around her sink. I began inspecting with my flashlight and noticed that there were some pictures on the wall directly above the sink. As I started to pull them down, cockroaches came scurrying out.
I quickly grabbed my vacuum and began vacuuming all of the live cockroaches.
Once everything was vacuumed I began to clean the wall where the cockroaches were nesting. There were large amounts of fecal stains which tends to look like pepper.
When everything was clean I inspected the cracks and crevices inside all of the cabinets, around the refrigerator, and microwave. I used a gel bait inside the cabinets to lure any cockroaches which were deep in hiding.
Lastly, I applied a light liquid application to the pipe chases as well as the baseboards. The superintendent and the tenant were absolutely thrilled that we took the extra steps to make sure that the cockroaches were immediately removed from the apartment.
