How Do I Get Rid of Cockroaches? - Conducive Conditions

In this video, Tom covers our Detailed Pest Assessment Approach (DPA) which focuses on not just the chemicals we use to control pests, but also the non-chemical ways. Non-chemical ways include good hygiene, conducive conditions encouraging pests into the home or yard, and building design. Lastly, he reinforces that these non-chemical methods need to be addressed before chemical application, otherwise you may struggle to get on top of or stay on top of any pest issue.
