My girlfriend has suggested that I use a fumigation service to get rid of the cockroaches in my house. She is from Obregon and does not know of any such service in San Carlos/Guaymas. I have done a search on this forum and the mercado. I can't find any suggestions. Has anyone had a positive experience with a local fumigation service?? If so, please advise.

save yourself a lot of money and go to home depot in the garden section you will find "orhto home defense" it comes in a gallon bottle with sprayer. this product is excellent and can be used inside and out!

what i do is spay the outer perimeter of the foundation of the house/buildings, i wait to see results, if needed i then spray the perimeters in the inside.

i have also had success with termite tubes that occasionally appear during the rainy season.

"ortho home defense" should rid your cockroach, ant, scorpion, spider, mosquito problems!

i second that idea...most of the "Fumigation " businesses have been helpful...they ask for a yearly contract...then fail to show on a regular basis... one in general is a total rip off.... do it your self cheaper,reliable,safer...one less person having acess to your home and valuables...just sayin...:dude:

We used to pay for fumigation but not anymore. Ortho works great and is super easy. We don't see any bugs around house much anymore although centipedes do show up in garage form time to time

Phil is the reliable go to guy in SC. 622 116 7370. 
For roaches, there is nothing like spray, glue boxes and Roach Prufe treated boric acid powder to nail everyone of them permanently.

Some of the gallon insecticides come with a battery powered adjustable sprayer, Wow, makes application a Breeze. No more tired hands from pumping the handle.

ortho home defense is about + or - 200 pesos at 17/1 that's about $12, USD.
this product works well has a sprayer and if you buy it in the USA jimmy has stated it comes with an electric sprayer. 
i highly recommend trying this first!

Just moved down from Louisiana (bug central) and we use Demon WP. Most co-op's back there carry it. Comes in small dry packs around $11 each. Not sure if you can buy it here but it works wonders.  David
