Roach Pest Control Services

Generally, circumstances dictate that using a chemical pesticide by way of spot treatment is the most effective way to remove cockroaches from your property. At Pest Solutions, we provide the following pest control services:

  • Natural and Chemical Pesticides
  • Mechanical Pest Control: Using physical barriers to blog entrance.
  • Biological Pest Control: Using natural predators and repellents.
  • Removing breeding grounds, food sources, etc.

The best method for removing a cockroach infestation can be determined by looking a few contributing factors. Before a pest control technician can recommend a solution for your pest problem, they will need to look at:

  • Where the cockroaches are located, especially if multiple nests.
  • What the roaches are attracted to.
  • The insect’s food source.
  • The size of the infestation.
  • The type of roach in your home.

Roach Threats

While roaches are viewed to be disgusting yet harmless, they pose a greater risk to commercial businesses and restaurants; cockroaches carry a number of diseases. In addition, several cockroach species are attracted to products that are stored in bulk and commonly stocked in stores and markets.

Time is of the essence once you have identified a cockroach infestation. Cockroaches breed very quickly and lay a lot of eggs. The small pest problem you have now can quickly turn into a large-scale infestation that demands more serious control measures. Contacting a pest control company to set up a formal inspection is the next step in addressing this problem.

When to Contact Roach Pest Control

Some small roach infestations can be easily and quickly handled with over-the-counter products and by eliminating their food source. However, there are times when an infestation has grown so large that more professional services are required. Here are some ways for you to determine if contacting a pest control company is justified:

  • Does anyone in my family or building run the risk of contracting a disease because of this pest?
  • Is the problem widespread?
  • Do family members / customers / coworkers have allergies to the insects?
  • Can you determine the extent of the infestation?
  • Are the cockroaches causing damage?
  • Have other pest control methods been unsuccessful?
  • Could this infestation reveal a more serious problem?

If you answered ‘yes’ to one or more of these questions, then it’s time to pick up the phone and contact your local pest control company about how to get rid of your roaches.

Types of Cockroaches in Washington

Washington is home to a number of roaches. American and German cockroaches are the most common. Washington is also home to Floridian and Oriental cockroaches.

Different types of roaches demand different pest control methods, so identifying the cockroach in your home is a critical step in developing a complete pest solution.

German Cockroach

As indicated by their appearance in Washington, German cockroaches are not limited to Germany. In fact, these pesky roaches are common throughout most of the world. Growing to about 1-1.5 millimeters long, they are identified by their light brown color and double black stripes behind their head.

German cockroaches prefer to lay their eggs where bulk foods are stored for long periods of time. This includes most Washington restaurants, schools, grocery stores, and pantries. Their small size can make them difficult to remove, but these roaches can contaminate and destroy substantial amounts of product.

American Cockroach

These cockroaches are a mahoghany brown color with a highlighted yellow stripe behind the head as adults. Unfortunately, American roaches can grow to be about 3 inches long, much longer than their German counterparts.

American cockroaches prefer moist environments, so whether in a commercial building or at home, you will often find them hidden in kitchens, bathrooms, underneath furniture, and around phone line cavities.

While these two types of cockroaches are certainly the most common, they are not the only types in Seattle. In order to effectively treat and eliminate these insects, they must be identified accurately. A local pest control company will provide you with an expert analysis of the pests on your property and assist you with removing the infestation.
