What is a roach clean out?

With ZIRCON, our roach clean outs consist of intense treatments utilizing specific equipment and pesticides that enables the pest control operator to reduce the current roach population by 99% in just one single treatment. This treatment is highly effective under ideal conditions such as proper preparation by the tenant or customer prior to any clean out service. Proper preparation is key for 99% roach elimination.

What is the process?

At ZIRCON we use a 3 step process to ensure full control:

  1. Actisol treatment and fogging
  2. Dusting wall voids and baiting
  3. Non-repellent residual application with insect growth regulators

Actisol Treatments and fogging:

On the initial service of even the most infested areas, the ZIRCON German roach clean out will always utilize the Actisol Machine which will allow us to gain immediate control by killing off at least 95-99% of all living cockroaches inside the affected space. The Actisol machine disperses a fog like substance enabling our technicians to penetrate all cracks, crevices, void areas of equipment, tile, baseboards, wall voids, and areas that are inaccessible with other liquid or dust applications. This process flushes the roaches from their hiding places killing them almost instantly which allows for immediate knockdown and control of the existing population.

Dusting and Baiting:

The 2nd most important part of eliminating a German roach infestation is properly dusting and baiting all crack and crevice areas within the space after the initial Actisol fog treatment. Roaches eat the bait which contains a pesticide that they bring back to their colonies. This is more of a precautionary follow up treatment taking place 1-2weeks following the initial cleanout to ensure 100% roach elimination.

Non-Repellent residual sprays with insect growth regulators (IGR’s):

The 2nd most important part of eliminating a German roach infestation is properly dusting and baiting all crack and crevice areas within the space after the initial Actisol fog treatment. Roaches eat the bait which contains a pesticide that they bring back to their colonies. This is more of a precautionary follow up treatment taking place 1-2weeks following the initial cleanout to ensure 100% roach elimination.
