Cockroach Inspection

Cockroaches are commonly found outdoors in moist, dark locations. When conditions become unfavorable, "Water Bugs" are known to come inside seeking more pleasant temperatures, sources of water and food for their offspring. Treatment begins with a licensed technician providing a full inspection of your property. During the inspection, our technician will identify potential problem areas around your home or office. After the source of your problem areas have been identified, our technician will create a customized cockroach treatment plan which will eliminate all live cockroaches. We'll suggest treatment options which provide year-round protection, using the most effective and environmentally-conscious cockroach control solutions.

Cockroach Treatment

After your home or office has been readied for service, we will begin our two part cockroach service. Initial treatment consists of low toxicity, non-repellent chemicals which are undetectable to cockroaches. The treatment covers the affected roaches as they travel and is transferred from cockroach to cockroach, killing the colony just like a virus. In conjunction with low toxicity transferable pesticides, we also utilize gel baits which work similarly to our non-repellent spray. After your initial treatment, a technician will return to inspect your property for remaining signs of cockroach activity, applying bait where it is appropriate. After treatment, we require all treated areas to remain exceptionally clean and uncluttered to ensure total knockdown.

Cockroach Treatment Methods

Depending on the severity of infestation, we use a variety of methods to offer complete roach control; spray pesticide, growth regulator and targeted baits. Bait is a scented gel pesticide that the cockroaches eat and share with the colony. Spraying leaves a residual pesticide behind which the cockroaches travel over to pick up a lethal dose. Growth regulator is a hormone disruptor that affects the cockroaches ability to reproduce and grow. In effect, a cockroach sheds its skin like a snake and growth regulator blocks the pest's ability to perform this task effectively.

Types Of Cockroaches

American Cockroach

The largest of the house-infesting cockroaches and is generally a solitary insect. They are typically found in food processing and food storage areas of a structure. American Cockroaches are often found in sewers and basements, particularly around pipes and drains. They are active when the temperature is 70 degrees or higher, but they can survive lower temperatures with the right conditions.

Brown Banded Cockroach

The brown-banded cockroach is very common all around the United States. The brown-banded cockroach eats a wide variety of items, often almost anything organic, including decaying matter. They need less moisture than other cockroaches so they tend to be more broadly distributed in the home, such as in living rooms and bedrooms. They can often be found in homes and apartments, but are less common in restaurants. They tend not to be found in the daytime, since they avoid light. These cockroaches have been known to cause problems in hospitals by emerging at night to feed on bodily fluids, thereby risking cross-infection.

German Cockroach

The German cockroach is the most common cockroach species in houses, apartments, restaurants, hotels, and other institutions throughout the United States. They are active mostly at night but hide in dark crevices during the day. If German cockroaches are seen during the day, the population is probably so large that the available cracks are already full, or food and moisture are in such short supply that daytime foraging is necessary. The German cockroach is a general feeder but is particularly attracted to fermented foods and beverage residues. Infestations are sometimes found in areas not generally suspected of harboring German cockroaches, such as dresser drawers in bedrooms. German cockroaches found scattered through non-food areas of a home or building is usually a sign of a very heavy infestation or of the repellent effects of insecticide applications elsewhere in the facility.

Oriental Cockroach

Oriental Cockroaches are large very dark (almost black, but sometimes dark reddish-brown), shiny cockroaches which live in sewers and similar wet, decaying organic matter. This species of cockroach often travels through sewer pipes. It survives on filth and enjoys temperatures from 68 to 84 degrees. This is a cooler temperature than that preferred by other cockroach species. They can also be found in leaf piles and firewood outdoors. They are sometimes called “water bugs” because they come out of drains, and “black beetle cockroaches” because of their smooth, dark bodies. Males are about 1 inch long, with wings that cover only about 3/4 of their abdomen; females are about 1 1/4 inch long, and have only short stubs of wing pads.
