Here at Brown Pest Control, we are dedicated to helping your home stay pest free. We understand that pests can be alarming, but beyond that they can also carry harmful bacteria and diseases and once they enter, it is easy for one or two to rapidly become many. As with many pests, cockroaches are an insect that you don’t want to find in your home, especially in large quantities. So, when should you call for termite control?

When to Call for Cockroach Control

  • Identify the problem: If you have only seen one cockroach, you may not have a problem. Large (about one inch) cockroaches are usually American cockroaches, and they tend to prefer living outdoors. If you see only one, you may not have a big problem. Small (about ½ inch) cockroaches are likely German roaches. They prefer indoor conditions and can multiply quickly. If you see any small roaches or more than one large roach, then call us for cockroach control.
  • Don’t waste time on ineffective treatments: Cockroaches are strongly resilient to regular extermination efforts. They can hold their breath for extended periods of time and last weeks without food. This resilience makes them very hard to eradicate and, in the meantime, they can multiply. Seeking professional cockroach control right away will be the most effective way of eliminating them from your home.
  • Regularly scheduled prevention: Our cockroach control is uniquely tailored to each situation. If you have reoccurring problems with termites, we can work with you to create a schedule that will best prevent future infestations.
