German Cockroaches are a common pest we deal with here at Artemis all year round, however Oriental Cockroaches are more a rare thing in South Wales. Treatment will usually involove the use of sticky traps to keep an eye on levels of infestation and also the use of gel baits. Liquid sprays can also be used. At Artemis we have a unique process we go through to eliminate cockroaches as fast as possible using chemicals that give a "domino effect" that when one cockroach ingests some of the insecticide he is likely to pass it on to other cockroaches and so on.

Ask about our unique process to elimination! All insecticides we use last in your carpets and floors for up to 90 days making sure we get the eggs when they hatch also

Prices range from  £150 to £300 on average however every call, location is different so prices really can vary - Call us and tell us your situation for a more tailored quote!

Don't be fooled by cheap products and services when it comes to insecticide treatments. We could do a spray for you as cheap as £35 but I I can promise you I wouldn't be very confident in that cheaper chemical working. The key to all pest control jobs is having the right chemicals and equipment for the job and if it sounds too good to be true be careful.
