Pest Control for Cockroaches


Cockroaches have roamed the earth for millions of years, making them one of the oldest and most adaptable pests in the modern world. Adult cockroaches measure anywhere from 30-50mm, and appear light to medium brown with six legs and two antennae. While some cockroaches have wings, they are not particularly skilled at flying and prefer to walk. These pests can be found anywhere from ground to roof, often entering through cracks in doors and windows, sewer pipes, or even through grocery bags. A cockroach infestation can be extremely difficult to tackle without professional assistance. While they are one of the most common household pests in North America, they are also one of the most stubborn. They’re rapid reproduction rate makes DIY solutions virtually ineffective and expensive. Without the experience and materials of a professional pest control specialist, it is nearly impossible to rid your home of cockroaches for good.

Identify & Eliminate

Cockroach infestations can be difficult to identify without expert eyes, but there are some things homeowners can keep an eye out for. Cockroach feces, odor, dead insects or small oval-shaped eggs can be found in hidden locations around the home. Skedaddle’s team of expert pest control technicians has ample experience identifying exactly which species of cockroach has plagued your property, and will provide you with a custom plan to protect your home. After identifying the infested areas of the home, our team will use a number of methods to confidently eliminate the existing populations. By using a variety of safe, environmentally friendly treatment methods, and targeting the treatment to the areas most affected within the home, homeowners can rest assured that all cockroaches are eliminated within a safe and timely manner.

Clean & Control

Cockroaches thrive wherever food, water, and shelter is abundant. They prefer to live in warm, dark, wet areas of the home, including basements, kitchens and bathrooms. Homeowners should clean and check these areas regularly for leaks and damp areas that would attract pests. Cockroaches have the ability to spread bacteria throughout the home, including ecoli, salmonella, and other allergens, putting you and your family at risk. Proper disinfection is necessary to rid your home of these potential health risks. Skedaddle Pest Control technicians will rid your home of all signs of infestation using a combination of bait, targeted repellant, and disinfection methods

Monitor & Protect

Preventing a future infestation is an important step in the pest control process. While cockroaches thrive during summer, they have the potential to remain active all year long reproducing as quickly as every 60 days. Monitoring your home on a regular basis will allow Skedaddle technicians to catch potential issues as they arise season to season. Cockroaches are some of the most stubborn pests to eliminate, but with a rigorous combination of regular inspections, sealing all potential entry points, and year round support from Skedaddle, your home will be pest free for good.
