Control of Cockroaches starts with proper identification. For example, the American Roach (or sewer roach) is more easily controlled than the more common German cockroach. That said, all cockroaches are survivors, constantly reproducing and masters of hiding in the most inaccessible places making the Cockroach a challenging adversary.
At Preventive we have developed a multi-pronged approach dedicated to eliminating cockroach from your home. Our initial service includes vacuuming hot spots (under and behind refrigerator, stove and dishwasher) to kill active roaches and remove oothecas (egg sacs) treating inside plumbing voids and under appliances with the latest products and techniques.
It is difficult to keep cockroaches from entering your home via boxes, grocery bags, suitcases, and the like, but you can take steps to prevent a serious problem. A key factor in prevention is sanitation. Clean up all spilled foods, including crumbs on the floor. Do not leave dirty dishes overnight. Store items such as cereal, crackers, cookies and bread in airtight sealed containers. Structural modifications such as caulking holes in walls where pipes pass through are necessary in the kitchen, bathroom, and other areas of the house in order to control cockroaches.
German cockroaches produce odorous secretions, when cockroach populations are high, these secretions may result in a foul odor in the general region of the infestation. Disease-producing organisms such as bacteria, protozoans, and viruses have been found on cockroach bodies. Different forms of gastroenteritis (food poisoning, dysentery, diarrhea, and other illnesses) appear to be the principal diseases transmitted by German cockroaches.
