Cockroaches are a nuisance. They are very disgusting. They live and feed in the dark. They are attracted to food, and food remains. You will find them behind refrigerators, sink, in kitchen cabinets, or under floor drains. Their flat bodies can fit even very narrow areas such as within wall cracks, and behind wall papers. They also love electronics and cardboard boxes.
Roaches are nocturnal and if you spot them during the day, then the level of infestation could be high. They transmit disease causing organisms such as typhoid, gastroenteritis, and diarrhea. They also cause food poisoning, allergic reactions, as well as skin rashes.
They multiply and spread so fast and easily move from one house to the other. They have a brown to black oval shaped flat, shiny bodies. They have six legs, two antennae and some species have wings. They are omnivorous.
Common cockroaches in Kenya are the German cockroach which are small in size and mostly found indoors and the Australian cockroach which are usually bigger.

How we get rid of cockroach
Cockroach control is a continuous process. We do asses the level of infestation, Implement the actual control process and then do monitoring to ensure that total eradication has been achieved.
Our cockroach control experts will come up with a treatment design programme depending on your situation.
How we do it
Inspection– During inspection, the cockroach control experts look for the hiding spots in warm, dark tight places near food and water. We make use of flashlights, mechanics mirror and a flushing agent such as an aerosol containing pyrethroids. Our cockroach experts also make use of pest monitors or sticky traps. Sticky traps help ascertain whether there is an infestation and know where the roaches are hiding.
At Rafiki Pest Control, we use an integrated approach when it comes to eliminating roaches. We use both chemical and non chemical pest control methods.
Non chemical control measures
- Exclusion- Our experts will give you advice on how best to reduce movement and hiding places of cockroaches. Proper home cleaning help prevent infestation. Regularly wipe clean your kitchen food store and cabinets. Properly seal your refuse bin and dispose the garbage often. You can as well contact us in case you need professional home cleaning.
- Sanitation-remove all sources of food and water from their environment.
- Steaming and vacuuming- We do have steam units and vacuum especially in places under heavy infestation.
- Cockroach traps
Chemical control– one type of pesticide application may not be effective. We therefore use two or three chemicals having different active ingredients. We use Pesticide baits and gels, Foggers, and Boric acid all of which needs to be handled by professionals like us.
Rafiki Pest Control uses pesticides with residual effect since it is hard to wet the cockroach due to its cuticle. Once the insect ingests the chemical, it ends up being eliminated with time. We target the most susceptible stage in the lifecycle which is usually the adult stage.
Contact us immediately you suspect that you have been infested. We do not only offer our services at residential homes but also do commercial pest control.
