German Cockroaches: One of the most common pests. In this pictured example a female roach is carrying an egg sac called an ootheca which can contain up to 40 nymphs. These roaches can produce up to 4 generations annually. Nymphs reach sexual maturity 45 days after hatching. This information is important as it plays a significant role in how we treat these prolific pests. Controlling German roaches requires a comprehensive approach utilizing various chemical methods and techniques.

An effective strategy involves combining a long-lasting residual product and an IGR (insect growth regulator), applied using a hand sprayer. Additionally, placing roach bait in areas of high activity, such as pantries, cabinets, drawers, cupboards, and cracks and crevices in kitchens and bathrooms, is recommended. Aerosols can also be used to treat hard-to-reach areas. For sustainable resolution, it is advised to continue monthly treatments after the initial appointment until the issue is resolved.

American cockroaches: These pests are commonly referred to as Palmetto Bugs or Water Bugs. While not nearly as invasive to the home as the German cockroach, American roaches are still an unpleasant pest to encounter. We focus this service outside and in the attic as this pest usually comes into the home from nesting sites outside.

Our general pest control service provides sufficient protection against these pests. See General Pest Control Service for more information regarding the service process.
