COCKROACHES

GERMAN ROACHES

The pictures to the left are not uncommon where a german roach infestation goes untreated. What makes this an uncommon pest is that they live amongst your dishes, silverware, appliances and so on. Thus the treatment needs to be done inside cabinets, appliances and so forth.

Because of their quick life cycle, and the fact that they are nocturnal, their population can really take off before you notice them much.

These roaches usually do not arrive at your home from a neighboring home. Instead since they stay inside they usually hitchhike inside of something (like a used kitchen appliance or a box from another infested home).

What is nice about treating these is that it can be done completely without any synthetic pesticides or fogging or such. Our approach does not require you to leave the house or completely empty the kitchen. And there is no toxic residue or messy smears of bait.

IMPORTANT FACTS TO KEEP IN MIND!
German Roaches multiply at extreme rates. The egg case they drop(lower left) will have between 30 and 48 eggs and hatch out in 1 month. More important is that they grow to sexual maturity in only 3 weeks. One pair, left untreated in a kitchen, can multiply to well over 1 million in less than a year. Worse they are living amongst and defecating on everything you use for food! German Roaches - Found throughout the world; commonly found in restaurants, kitchens and stores where food and moisture are abundant; contaminate food, leave stains, create foul odors and carry disease organisms.

SMOKEY BROWN ROACHES (Commonly mistaken for waterbugs)
Typically reddish to brownish black and very shiny. They can fly short distances and are attracted to lights at night; have the reputation of being difficult to control because it is so active and have many habitat preferences. They rarely infest the dwelling part of buildings, and are instead found in sheds, wall and roof spaces, sub-floors, mulched areas, and in and around grease traps and drains.
 
ORIENTAL ROACHES
Also known as black beetles; more sluggish than other species.. These cockroaches are common in basements, crawl spaces, cracks and crevices of porches, foundations, and walkways adjacent to buildings. They feed on a wide variety of plant and animal material. The Oriental cockroach breeds well in unventilated crawl spaces or basements where humidity is high.
 
AMERICAN ROACHES
Also mistaken for a water bug, the largest house-infesting species, about one and one-half inches long; reddish-brown wings with light markings on thorax.

The American cockroach is the largest cockroach found in houses. Females can hatch up to 150 offspring per year. Cockroaches don’t get their wings until the become adults.
 
BROWN BANDED ROACHES
Easily recognized by alternating light and dark bands across its back; doesn't multiply as fast as the German, but it is considered harder to control; often found high on walls in picture frames, behind molding, near appliance motors, in light switches, closets and furniture.

Brown banded cockroaches get their name from the two light bands they have across their dark brownish bodies. The male’s wings are larger than the female’s wings.

Brownbanded cockroaches often hide their eggs in or under furniture. They usually live 5-6 ½ months
