HOW WE CONTROL COCKROACHES

SANITATION

We advise and focus your cleaning effort to clean out infested areas, eliminating their food sources. Clean out cracks and crevices to remove any food sources, including cockroach eggs or droppings, since feces contain pheromones that attract other roaches and feed young ones.

INSPECTION

We look for cockroach hiding spots in warm, dark, tight places near food and water using a flashlight and mirror. We may confirm any suspected habitats by using sticky traps.

 ELIMINATE HABITAT AND PREVENT ENTRY

Removing cockroach hiding places and entry points will drive cockroaches away and prevent future infestations. Inside the home, we seal cracks in dark places like cupboards or building cracks with caulk, repair water leaks, and remove moisture in crawl spaces and other dark areas by increasing ventilation.
