Our goal is to locate and identify the problem, inspect your home’s exterior and interior, and create a specialized plan to stop cockroaches in their tracks.

The Problem with Cockroaches

There are 69 cockroach species in North America; the best course of action to keep these pests out is to determine what type of infestation you have.

These insects can slip into your home many ways: through cracks, window openings, vents, even in grocery bags. While they usually seek out poorly sanitized areas, any space is at risk of an infestation.

When they do enter your home, it doesn’t take long for them to find a warm, comfortable spot to thrive. Cockroaches are quick breeders and can taint food with E. coli and Salmonella bacteria, and prolonged cohabitation can trigger allergies and asthma.

Cockroaches – the Hard Facts

Cockroaches have three stages of life: egg, nymph, and adult. During a hatching, many nymphs can come from a single egg. Therefore, one adult cockroach can lead to a big problem.

While they are not a colony insect, these nocturnal pests can hide just about anywhere. Depending on the species and the size of your cockroach problem, they may be difficult to detect. The best way to determine a course of action is by figuring out what kind you have.

  • German Cockroach
  • American Cockroach
  • Oriental Cockroach
  • Brownbanded Cockroach
  • Wood Cockroach

Narrowing down the species is crucial in helping treat a cockroach infestation.

Getting Rid of Cockroaches for Good

There isn’t just one catch-all solution for ridding your home of cockroaches. To get rid of these pests for good, the best strategy is to use multiple techniques and take precautions.

The first step to keeping cockroaches away is keeping them from getting in. Perform a thorough inspection of your home’s exterior to close any possible openings in windows, doors, or vents. Plug up cracks and seal up pipes using the proper materials. Additionally, keep yard waste to a minimum.

To keep any pests from hanging around, be sure your interior is clean as well. Food should be cleaned up and kept in tight-fitted containers. Dishes, garbage, and other recyclables should not be allowed to build up.

The last thing you want to do is give cockroaches ideal food and shelter. With these precautions and a thorough inspection, we can begin to treat the problem in several ways:
