German Roaches

Cockroaches are one of the hardest insects for a homeowner to eradicate and a troubling reoccurrence in apartment buildings. The most common cockroach in homes, apartment buildings and businesses are German Cockroaches. One female can carry an egg capsule (called an ootheca) containing 30-40 babies and will do this about 5 times over her lifespan. Cockroaches will eat anything including: glue, soap, waste, toothpaste, grease, dog/cat food, dried skin and whatever you have made for supper. There are no boundaries in any building to a cockroach. German Cockroaches will travel from one floor to another using pipes and wires that travel from one floor to another. Once an infestation of Cockroaches is noticed, it is important to hire a professional right away. Tenants will try sprays to kill the Cockroaches, but this may cause them to spread and flee to other apartments causing the infestation to expand to surrounding apartments. German Cockroaches will be found in cracks and crevices and shun the light.  Our technicians have specialized equipment and the state-of-the-art dusts, baits and chemicals to eradicate these nasty pests.

Treatment begins with a thorough inspection to measure the degree of infestation. This will determine what type of treatment that will be performed.  Even if only one tenant is complaining it is important to at least treat or monitor all apartments that touch the infested apartment. Our Pest Management Professionals play an important role in providing preventative services to businesses to prevent an infestation of German Cockroaches from being delivered to them in goods/foods and then being brought home by you.  Are you beeing bugged?
