German Cockroach – This very common cockroach likes places with a lot of moisture and warmth. Their mostly found in homes, apartments, hotels, super markets, and food service places. They cause food poisoning, salmonella, dysentery, and can cause asthmatic attacks.

Brown-Banded Cockroach – These small creatures like drier places. They’ll gather in places that include furniture, closets, cabinets, behind wallpaper, trash bins, and electrical devices.

American Cockroach – These big guys are mistakenly referred to as “water bugs” or “palmetto bugs.” They like places that are warm, dark, and wet. They’ll gather in basements, crawl spaces, utility areas, and under bathtubs.

Oriental Cockroach – These large stocky creatures like dark, damp basements, but can be found in the the upper floors of apartment houses. Usually, they roam outside in warmer weather and like to make camp in garbage storage areas and anywhere else food and moisture can be found.

Cockroaches prefer to live where there is food, warmth and moisture. Since cockroaches flourish where food and moisture are readily available, sanitation is an important step in prevention and control.

Prevention – Our preventive techniques include sealing ports of entering, eliminating pheromone trails, and eliminating all conducive conditions.

Control – We’ll base our roach control action on the type of roach. We’ll first use non-chemical methods. If that does not work, we’ll use the least toxic pesticide. You’ll have a choice between either a natural or synthetic pesticide.
