Cockroaches are both unpleasant and unsanitary. Getting rid of roaches can be tricky because the two most common roach types (German or American roaches) are eliminated using different techniques. After determining what kind of cockroach you have, follow the recommended treatment plans. We have tips on how to inspect for roaches, critical sanitation/exclusion procedures, and best treatment options to get rid of roaches.
Roach Identification: The first step to get rid of roaches is to identify which type of roach you have. To determine which type of roach you have, first look at their sizes. Afterward, compare physical features and habitats from the information and links below. You may need a flashlight or glue boards to catch them. When in doubt about their identification, please email us.
Inspection: Proper inspection is critical to success in a roach control treatment plan. Are the roaches the smaller type of roach (an inch or less)? Do they scurry over your kitchen counter when you turn on the light? These are typically German Roaches. Do you have the larger roach (about 1.5 inches) that lives mostly outside and come inside occasionally? Larger roaches require a different treatment plan.
Sanitation: The third step in getting rid of roaches is to investigate sanitation issues. Since roaches need food, water, and a harbor location, it is important to eliminate these sources as much as possible.
