Do mothballs repel cockroaches?

What is the best product to kill cockroaches?

There is no single best product to kill cockroaches, because there are many different types of cockroaches. These include the Oriental Cockroach, Brown-Banded Cockroach, American Cockroach and German Cockroach which all have a differing resistance to various pesticides or poisons.

The most effective way to get rid of a specific cockroach species is using a multi-pronged approach. Using poison is one of the most common ways, but it must be reapplied constantly for it to have a lasting effect, and should never be used where children or pets can come into contact with them.

Using glue traps has proven successful in trapping cockroaches that roam around a home, but using a professional pest control service like BonAccord Pest Control, London based pest control company, can help exterminate these creatures with minimal fuss.For more information on how Bon Accord Pest Control can help you with your cockroach problem visit:

Cockroach Control 

Cockroaches are often the main culprits in food poisoning cases because of their ability to spread bacteria. They carry pathogens on their bodies and deposit them where they have been walking or laying eggs .

Roaches are commonly found in filth with rotting material, but most often food particles which they feed on. They are nocturnal creatures that thrive in areas with high populations of humans and their waste.


Having cockroaches at home is not just disgusting or unsanitary, it is also unhealthy for your family. Cockroaches spread different kinds of diseases. Type of bacteria called salmonella they have the tendency to carry. Salmonella are tiny amounts that cockroaches can distribute by walking or laying eggs around where you live, leaving people who come in contact with them at risk for food poisoning.

There are also other bacteria that cockroaches carry such as streptococcus, staphylococcus and coliform which can increase your chance of getting sick.

Prevention is always the best solution to any kind of health hazard, so be sure to keep your home clean and cook food properly. Utilise different ways to eliminate them from your abode.

We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.

We were lucky to have found Bon Accord, they responded very fast to our request and Gabriel was very helpful and informative. He made several visits and did his absolute best until the mice problem we had was gone. Highly recommended.
