Cockroaches can be found infesting everything from homes to restaurants to ships and planes.
They may follow water pipes and electrical lines through walls from one room to another and even from one apartment to another.
Cockroaches are accomplished hitchhikers. In fact, German cockroaches usually first get into your home by riding in boxes, in furniture, grocery bags and other items brought into your home. A female German roach can produce up to 36 to 46 offspring in one egg capsule and this happens 5 more times in their life span if not caught in time. Most other cockroach species invade from the outside or from sewers or drains.
Most cockroaches prefer to rest on wood rather than on metal and other surfaces. That’s why you’ll often find them living in wood cabinets or in cardboard boxes. German cockroach fecal material contains a pheromone that tells other cockroaches that the area is a good place to harbor and hide. Large numbers of cockroaches may congregate in areas where fecal material has accumulated.
Good sanitation helps put stress on a cockroach population by making them more susceptible to treatments and baits.
Your Advanced professionals begin by inspecting and treating all possible hiding places in which cockroaches might live. This includes electric motors, electronic equipment, false ceilings, wall voids and accessible cracks and voids.
A variety of application, techniques and methods are applied to control and eliminate the infestation. Additional areas covered are crack and crevice and void treatments with baits.
