German Cockroach

Our remedy for German Cockroach control

First, contact us. Cockroaches pose serious health risks to your family or business. Controlling German cockroaches takes expertise and persistence due to their rapid reproductive rate. At least 95% of the populations must be eliminated during initial treatment or they will return. Baits are a particularly effective form of roach control for this species, but correct placement in cracks and crevices near harborages is critical.

How to Identify a German Cockroach

Appearance

Brown; about 1/2″ in length, with two dark, longitudinal stripes on the “shield” at the front of its body.

Habitat

German cockroaches are found throughout structures but prefer warm and humid places. Roach control should focus on bathrooms and the kitchen, two places frequented by this pest. It spends about 80% of its time resting in cracks and voids near a source of food and/or water. These cockroaches most commonly enter buildings via paper products or packaging such as grocery bags, cardboard boxes and drink cartons.

Diet

Scavenger; eats almost anything, including such things as soap, glue and toothpaste.
