About Cockroaches

Cockroaches are one of the most common insects to be found in and around a home. They are not social creatures but do tend to be found in groups and feed on just about anything with nutrients.

Cockroaches are known to carry many diseases and can be very harmful to young or weak immune systems. They can carry diseases such as salmonella, staph, strep, E coli, and even dysentery.

Control

Cockroach control is a process that requires the homeowner to take initiative and ensure the cleanliness of the space. Check items for cockroaches and eggs as they enter, and practice good sanitation. Throughout our inspection, we establish the species involved, where the infestations and populations are, and focus our treatment where it is needed most. In the initial application, we may utilize some or all of the following; baits, insect growth regulators, residual sprays, aerosols, dusts, and microencapsulated materials. The delivery of such materials is usually placed in cracks and crevices and occasionally on surfaces or in voids. We also follow up to make sure there has not been any new infestation of other cockroaches.

Our Recommendation

Based on your annual history of occurrences, if you have had one to four occurrences in the past year, Century Pest Control’s Century System is best. However if you have had 5 or more occurrences in the past year, our Executive Century System one time and/or quarterly service will adequately control frequently occurring roaches.
