I am getting a serious pest control issue in my condo they do fogging and the surroundings are really clean and our house is pretty clean.

We are getting really tiny creeping cockroach babies and even huge flying cockroaches like moths.

What can I do? Can someone suggest a good pest control agency?
Maybe one that has a yearly contract with follow up treatments if they come back?

How much does it cost any idea?


Talk to the management office and let them know your problem and the size of the roach. They will arrange for the pest control contractor who services the building to check your unit and make a determination if the problem is from the common area and treat it accordingly.

High rise buildings with chutes have a sprinkler system that rinses the inside of the bin chutes to clean off food spills. These spills occur because people sometimes throw food down the chute without bagging it first. The management office can arrange the pest control company to pour a chemical insecticide down the chute from a higher floor. This may be successful in eradicating road infestations in the bin chute that have established themselves at higher floors.

First thing is to give feedback to the management as that treatment is expensive and they'll have to determine first that is the existing problem and correct treatment.

Hope that helps.

Pest control is the process of minimizing or removing a wide range of undesirable insects and other pests from spaces occupied by people.

I don't know what this thread would have done if you weren't here to clear that up. Thanks!

Pest control has been the biggest cause of concern for me in last few months. I am just making use of the thread to get right answers for controlling mice and cockroaches in my home. If you have some good advice please help me.

I have no idea how to control mice but you can learn how to control cockroaches from the emerald wasps.

Considering you have posted from 3 separate IP addresses, one in New Jersey, USA, and two from Mumbai, one might reasonably ask why you bring up a year old post on a Singapore expat board to talk about mice and cockroaches. TIC - TOC.
