The most common roaches in our area include: American Roaches, Brownbanded Roaches, German Roaches and Oriental Roaches. Roaches can lay egg sacs that can contain up to 50 roaches per egg sac and hatch within a few weeks, so infestations can get out of control quickly.
Signs to look out for
Roaches are typically found in the kitchen and bathroom areas; but in some severe cases, they be found in the bedrooms and other living areas too. Roach droppings can be found around electronics, on the walls, cabinets, floors and appliances. They are black or brown in color and have a speckled or coffee grind like appearance.
Proper sanitation is key to eliminating roach infestations. Our basic treatment procedure consists of either spraying the cabinets and baseboards or baiting the areas of activity inside the kitchen and bathroom cabinets. We recommend spraying in situations with heavy infestations, but the tenant must prepare the home before treatment (see prep sheet below).
