Cockroach Control

At Malaysian Pest Control, we offer comprehensive cockroach control solutions that are safe, effective, and environmentally friendly. Our expert team uses the latest techniques and products to eliminate cockroaches and prevent future infestations.


Baiting is a popular and effective method for controlling cockroach populations. This technique involves placing bait stations or gel bait in strategic locations where cockroaches are likely to find and consume them. The bait contains a slow-acting insecticide mixed with a food attractant, ensuring it is appealing to cockroaches. When cockroaches eat the bait, they return to their hiding places and die. Other cockroaches then feed on the dead, further spreading the insecticide within the colony. This method is particularly effective for reaching the nests and eliminating the population at its source.

Residual Spray

Residual sprays are insecticides that leave a lasting residue on surfaces where cockroaches are known to travel or hide. These sprays are applied to cracks, crevices, and other potential entry points around your property. The residual effect of the spray means that cockroaches coming into contact with the treated areas will be exposed to the insecticide over a period of time, leading to their elimination. Residual sprays are an important part of a comprehensive pest control strategy, offering ongoing protection against new infestations.

Sticky Pad Traps

Sticky pad traps, also known as glue traps, are a non-toxic method used to monitor and control cockroach populations. These traps consist of a sticky surface that captures cockroaches as they walk across it. Sticky pad traps are usually placed in areas where cockroach activity is suspected, such as under sinks, behind appliances, and along walls. While they are effective for capturing individual cockroaches and monitoring activity levels, they are best used in conjunction with other treatment methods for a more complete solution to an infestation.

Our Integrated Approach

At Malaysian Pest Control, we understand that effective cockroach control requires a comprehensive strategy. That’s why we combine bait, residual sprays, and sticky pad traps with a thorough inspection and customized treatment plan. Our integrated approach ensures not only the elimination of current infestations but also the prevention of future ones.
