Cockroaches  are  found fairly frequently. The most prevalent species, The German cockroach, can actually be found worldwide wherever there are people, being transported from place to place as we ship goods. They are frequently brought into homes, apartment buildings and businesses in some kind of shipment. If food, water, and harborage (a crack to hide in) are available, a mating pair (or a previously fertilized female) can produce an astonishing number of offspring in a fairly short period of time.

The German cockroach's breeding abilities allows its population to grow more rapid than any other cockroach. Each egg case contains between 30 to 40 eggs and development from egg to adult can occur in as little as 45 days. Like all cockroaches, it will eat virtually anything.

Tips for Prevention:
• Keep kitchen and food preparation areas sanitary and clean.

Cockroach control starts with a very thorough inspection to identify the food and water sources and the focal points of the infestation. Once the majority of the population has been located, they can be eliminated with a combination of baits, dusts, aerosols, and residual sprays. The exact products used would depend on the population locations and the severity of the infestation.

In many situations, repeat treatments are needed – both for elimination of the current infestation, and as a preventative measure.
