 Can't I Get Rid Of Roaches Myself?

While store-bought pesticides should kill any roaches that you can see and spray, this is usually a very small portion of your infestation. There are many more roaches than just what you can see, hiding in cracks and crevices behind cabinets or in wall voids. Missing just one female roach can start the infestation over again, never completely eliminating the problem. Cockroaches really take a professional exterminator to eliminate.

What Are The Most Common Types Of Cockroaches?

There are three species of cockroaches that we commonly encounter in our region: the German cockroach, the American cockroach, and the Oriental cockroach. The German cockroach is the smallest and most prolific of the three, taking up residence inside our kitchens and bathrooms. The American and Oriental roaches are also very common in our area, causing problems in any buildings that have food preparation, drains, and storage areas.
