The most common cockroach in the United States is the German Roach. This roach can be found worldwide. They like to nest inside people’s homes, more specifically where there is easy access to water, such as the kitchen and bathroom areas.

While most pests can be taken care of just with a general pest treatment, roaches do require exterminators to go the extra mile. Cockroach infestations are more serious, as they reproduce faster than most pests.

Here is what you need to do if you have this problem at home:

  • Call a professional.
  • Empty all cabinets and drawers so that the treatment can be done properly.
  • Deeply clean your home (try to get rid of any food source for them).
  • Do not treat on your own.
  • Act fast.

The reason why you shouldn’t treat on your own, is because the products you might find in a store will not help you get rid of the nest. It is important to use something better than just a kill on contact substance. Always remember, the best products are not sold to the general public, but to exterminators that are licensed to use them.

Here is a link to a small video of a German Roach treatment we did for a homeowner that waiter too long do not let this be you! Acting fast can save you a lot of pain, hazard, and money. It’s just like when the engine light goes on in your car. It is up to you to wait it out until it breaks down, forcing you into a bigger expense. However, you can also just fix it right away.
