COCKROACH CONTROL SERVICE

If you, the customer, can assist us in proper preparation of your home prior to cockroach service,
Havasu Pest Control, will provide the maximum effectiveness for your dollar. Your service technician will
arrange for a follow-up appointment with you after the initial cockroach service is completed.
The products we use have a flushing action and do not instantly kill all cockroaches. Therefore, do not be
alarmed if the roaches are seen for 2-3 days after service. You should see more roaches as flushing action brings
them our of hiding and causes them to be exposed to the residue of our products.

KITCHEN AREA
1. Pull all items out of all appropriate cabinets and place them away from any area that is going to be treated.
One good idea is to place everything in the center of the living room and cover it with a large tablecloth. Items
must be left out 3-4 hours before they can be returned.
2. Hand towels and dish towels should be pulled off racks.
3. Open dishes, pots, pans, baby bottles and nipples should be removed from the area.
4. Cleaning the oven, removing extensive grease on walls and caked debris on the floor, behind the refrigerator,
etc. may be necessary.
5. Remove all food and liquid from the stove and kitchen table. Do not place materials on the kitchen table
because you may have to check and treat the underside of kitchen chairs and tables.
6. Remove food and liquid from the stove and kitchen table. Do not place materials on the kitchen table because
you may have to check and treat the underside of kitchen chairs and tables.

BATHROOM AREA
1. Make sure toothbrushes, toothpaste, false teeth, and other personal items are not exposed in the bathroom(s).
2. Toilet paper and other items in the bathroom cabinet should be removed.

ADDITIONAL ITEMS
1. Be sure someone will be home at time of service (adult).
2. Close all windows.
3. Remove pets from the area (including dogs, cats, turtles, and birds). Remove pets to the outside or off the
premises for 3-4 hours. For pets that cannot be removed easily (such as fish tanks for example), cover the tank,
stop the pump, and restart the pump 3-4 hours after treatment is complete.
4. Remove pet bedding, water and food dishes from the area.
5. Remove children’s toys, stuffed pillows and open soap.
6. Turn off air conditioning units and fans.
7. Empty garbage and keep the lid tightly closed on the can, especially if the garbage is not taken out until
morning.
8. Store empty soda cans and returnable bottles in a sealed plastic bag.
9. Remove items from closet floors in all rooms to allow access to baseboards.
10. Protect computers, stereo components, and other sensitive devices.
11. If you suspect cockroaches are in cardboard boxes, throw out the boxes prior to treatment.

NOTE: After we apply our products, please do not wipe or wash kitchen cabinets. Place clean shelving paper down and make sure all eating and drinking surfaces of items face up and away from treated surfaces.
