Cockroach Control Services

Rid Your Life of Roaches Today!

Cockroaches are disgusting pests that are not only unsightly, but also problematic. They tend to get into everything, and they are very noticeable. They are also quick, and some cockroach species can even fly! While you’ll be able to notice a cockroach scurrying around, it may be more difficult to find the spot where they are nesting. This makes handling an infestation particularly difficult. Beyond being gross, cockroaches also carry disease and spread bacteria—making them a dangerous pest to have living in your home.

If you have cockroaches in your home and you want to get rid of them, make sure you contact Nationwide Pest Control. Our large referral network of pest control experts understand cockroaches and their behavioral patterns.

Nationwide Pest Control can send a local specialist to pinpoint where the infestation of cockroaches is occurring in your home, and rid them from your property. From there, the specialist will take preventative measures to ensure cockroaches don’t come back!

What are Cockroaches?

Cockroaches are unsightly insects that generally live in damp, dark, and dirty places. They often feed off of food you have within your home. Cockroaches are large enough to notice, and they are generally known to have flat, oval-shaped bodies, long antennae, and even wings. They are also usually brown. Cockroaches are fast, and they scurry quickly around your home looking for both food and non-food material to snack on. Cockroaches are commonly found in trash cans, compost piles, and waste bins. Cockroaches are well known for being prolific breeders, and they tend to multiply quickly. That’s why it’s important to catch an infestation in its early stages.

Common Types of Cockroaches

There are a variety of cockroaches out there, but here are three of the most common:

  • American cockroaches

American cockroaches are very large, and can grow to as big as two inches long! These cockroaches generally have figure-eight markings behind their heads.

  • Oriental cockroaches

Oriental cockroaches often live in sewers and drains, which is why they have the nickname “water bugs.” These roaches have smooth, dark bodies and have a musty odor.

  • German cockroaches

German cockroaches are light brown bugs that are smaller than other roaches. While they are small, they tend to breed like crazy! A couple of German cockroaches can rapidly turn into a colony of thousands in as little as two weeks, so it’s important to destroy the infestation quickly.

Avoiding and Getting Rid of Cockroaches

Killing off a cockroach infestation can be difficult, which is why it should be left to the professionals. If you notice that you have a cockroach infestation, you’ll want to contact Nationwide Pest Control so we can send out a specialist to destroy the infestation. Not only will they pinpoint where the infestation is occurring, but they will also take effective measures to ensure the cockroaches don’t return.

With that said, there are a few things you can do to avoid getting cockroaches to begin with. Consider these simple tips:

  •       Replace torn window and door screens.
  •       Keep your basement dry using a dehumidifier.
  •       Regularly clean and vacuum.
  •       Place weather-stripping around your doors and windows.
  •       Examine the exterior walls of your home, and seal off any openings you discover.
  •       Use locking lids on your compost bins and outdoor trash cans.
  •       Repair leaky pipes and fixtures inside and outside of your business or home.

While cockroaches aren’t generally aggressive and rarely bite, they are dangerous in other ways. Cockroaches are known for spreading bacteria and carrying viruses that are very harmful. Cockroaches can contaminate your food and surfaces with pathogens that are found on their bodies and legs. This, in turn, can lead to people in your household getting very ill. Cockroaches are known to carry illnesses such as dysentery, salmonella, and more. Some of these illnesses can be deadly.
