Cockroaches come in an astounding variety of shapes and sizes. In fact, some can even fly. HHowever, the German cockroach is the most common indoor roach. They are nocturnal insects, which is why you are more likely to see them at night, and they will often be accompanied by an unpleasant smell. They are light brown and about ½ inch in length with two dark stripes on the pronotum (shield). Egg cases are light beige and about ¼ in long with roughly 30 young in each case. Females carry egg cases about 1-2 days before they hatch and can produce eggs every few weeks. This gives the German cockroach the fastest reproductive cycle of all cockroaches. So, if you’ve seen or think you have roaches, it’s important to act fast and call our exterminators as an infestation can quickly explode in population.
Habitat & Treatment Options
Roaches like warmth and humidity, often seeking out habitats that are 70-75 degrees Fahrenheit. They also typically make their homes close to sources of food and organic matter like kitchens, food prep areas and storage spaces. When not scurrying about at night, cockroaches like dark and narrow spaces. This makes many homes and businesses ideal candidates for infestations.
Treatment starts with observation and inspection. Traps are often used to monitor activity as well as identify the kind of cockroach in need of treatment. From there we can employ a number of highly effective, high quality, professional grade treatments. We offer same-day services Monday through Friday, so you don’t have to deal with roaches a second longer than necessary. Our technicians will also give pointers and preventative measures to keep pests out and prevent future infestations.
