Roach Exterminator Boston
Cockroaches, also known as (Periplaneta Americana), can be disease harboring and difficult to remove. Who are we kidding, they are downright nasty and a cause for panic. Cockroaches have been around for a very long time, think a few million years, and by a few we mean 300 million years or more. They are resilient and an unstoppable force of nature (until we get a hold of ’em). There are many reasons to get rid of this pest besides that fact that they can make your skin crawl. As the premier roach exterminator in Boston, we are confident that we can rid you of these unwanted guests.
Here is some information on Cockroaches:
- Cockroaches can collect disease by scurrying through sewage, decaying food, and overall disgusting surfaces. They can contaminate your food and water by transferring these germs and viruses onto your food and water sources.
- It is important to identify which type of cockroach is causing the infestation to be able to provide the proper method of extermination. A professional pest control service will be able to detect and treat the infestation appropriately and quickly.
- Signs of an infestation include sightings, droppings (seen below), egg capsules, and also the musty odor of their pheromones.
Cockroach Egg Sacs:
Removing cockroaches is not a simple task and requires ongoing pest control to eliminate an infestation. Every home and business present unique challenges for the removal of cockroaches, but our technicians can ensure that we take care of the problem. The first step in any cockroach control operation is identifying the correct type of offender.
The first step to getting rid of roaches in the house is identifying which type of cockroach has invaded your home. There are three types common in North America.
The American Cockroach is one of the larger common cockroaches, measuring up to 1.5’’ or more. They are a brownish/yellow color and feature wings which extend beyond their abdomen. They prefer to dwell in dark and moist places, making them common in basements and bathrooms.
The German Cockroach is the most common roach species in North America. They are slightly smaller than their American cousins on average and are a brownish color with dark streaks. They are attracted to humid environments with access to food and water, making them often encountered in kitchens and bathrooms.
The Oriental Cockroach is glossy black or dark brown in color, with wings that are a little shorter than the abdomen. Like American and German Cockroaches, they prefer warm, humid environments and can be found in bathrooms, basements, porches, and kitchens.
