Heat Treatment
Rokill’s specialist heat treatment team offers a unique pesticide free
option for insect control. The treatment can be used against a variety of
pests including bed begs, stored product beetles and moths. A heat
generator is used to raise the temperature within an enclosed area to 52
degrees C. This temperature is high enough to kill all insect life stages,
but low enough to ensure there i no risk of d

with temperature sensors is used to accurately monitor the temperature
and ensure even distribution. It also allows accurate graphs to be
produced, showing the exact temperature during each point in the
treatment. The results can be spectacular, with dying insects pouring from
every crevice of the treated machinery! Please contact Rokill Service

                                                   We are now able to provide an internet based reporting system
                                                Roscan utilises bar code technology. Hand held computers are used
                                                    to scan pest monitoring points throughout the premises. Digital
                                                  reports are produced and downloaded to a secure customer web

                                                be accessed via the site. Roscan is particularly useful for those who
                                                  are responsible for managing the pest control at multiple sites, as

                               you know we have 8 different species of social wasp including the

                                  Ants have already become a problem for many businesses this year due to the
                                  climate changes we have been experiencing. Ants are obviously a foreign body
                               threat, but also thought to spread disease such as summer diarrhoea, E. Coli & other
                                bacteria. Rokill can quickly and effectively treat these pests on a one off basis or as
                                  an addition to an existing service agreement. Please contact the Rokill Service

    Seagulls are becoming more apparent at this time of the year and whilst, nesting and
nurturing their young, they can become very territorial and aggressive, often causing distress
to humans in and around their nesting areas. Rokill has a specialist, experienced bird team &
  can provide long term prevention from these and other types of pest birds. Please contact
    Rokill Service Control for more information and to arrange a free, no obligation survey.
