Application Techniques
MAXPRO uses the most appropriate application technique to achieve a good kill of the target organism while minimizing the effect on non-target organisms and the environment.
Spraying is usually the chosen application method where a surface treatment is required. Spraying is also the chosen technique for crack and crevice treatments. Many insects spend the daytime in harbourages, such as cracks and crevices in the buildings, away from the light. Spraying into these areas takes small but effective doses of insecticide direct to the insects.
We also use insecticide dust to give a long (residual) period of control in areas not usually entered by humans, such as basements and roof spaces, ducts, cavities and electrical conduits etc.
Space Treatment
The use of insecticidal smoke, misting or fogging all fill the space to be treated with small particles of insecticide on a carrier or in the case of a thermal fogger, vaporized insecticide. These formulations are effective against flying insects.
Ultra low volume (ULV) applications
Ultra low volume (ULV) dispersal systems use insecticides more efficiently by presenting them in optimum-sized particles. True ULV applicators produces over 90 percent of their droplets at under 50 microns with the VMD (volume median diameter being between 10 and 15 microns).

Space and ULV applicators provide limited penetration of insecticides into harbourages and cracks and crevices. As the droplets are carried on air currents insects may be flushed out into contact with more insecticide.
The use of insecticide baits is becoming increasingly common especially against cockroaches and ants. Insecticide baits have a very low mammalian toxicity, making them safer to use where humans and other non-target organisms are present.

Some insects will return to their harbourages having ingested bait and after they have died their carcasses will be consumed by other insects, which are also subsequently poisoned (a domino or cascade effect).

Baits are not suitable where a quick kill is required and are therefore usually used combined with other treatments.

Quality Assurance

MAXPRO maintains a quality assurance system which monitors all work carried out on your site.

Our quality checks ensures that:

  • Work on site is carried out in a safe manner
  • Pests are identified, reported and eliminated within the required timescales
  • Inspections and follow up visits meet the terms of the specification agreed with you
  • Pesticides are applied safely
  • Rodent and insect monitoring stations are clean, adequately serviced and correctly sited
  • Rodent monitoring stations are securely fixed and locked where necessary
  • Additional baits/traps are laid when an infestation is identified
  • The report folder is well organised and up todate
  • Necessary recommendations on preventive action are significant and legible
