Pest Structural Inspections: German Cockroach (Blattella germanica ) Mobile App

The German cockroach is not only the cause of the largest number of phone calls requesting pest control, but also represents the largest number of control failures of any household pest. It is most successful at infesting human structures and withstanding pest control activity. Pest control applicators will need to double their efforts in analyzing every German cockroach infestation, and should be pre-pared to use more than one technique to bring the infestation under control. The Pest Structural Inspections: German Cockroach (Blattella germanica) mobile app covers: Cockroach Control and Management, Appearance, Life Cycle, Behaviour and Harbourage, Mating, and Foraging.GoCanvas allows you to add a Multi-Line Text Field to the body of an email.
