GERMAN COCKROACH IDENTIFICATION
German cockroaches are a nocturnal pest measuring .50 – .63 inches in length. Varieties in Las Vegas come in tan, brown, to almost black in color, and have two, dark parallel streaks spanning from the head to the base of the wings. Although the German cockroach has wings, it is unable to fly.
LAS VEGAS ROACHES INITIAL FLUSH-OUT
Las Vegas roach elimination in Las Vegas is a thorough process. We begin by applying flushing agents to the area. Then, we administer a form of birth control or IGR, to control their reproduction rate. As a final step, we apply residual barriers to ensure colony elimination. This process can take up to 90 days for total elimination.
MONTHLY PREVENTION IS NESSECARY
To eliminate the Las Vegas population of cockroaches and prevent future infestations from outside sources, monthly treatment with liquids, aerosols, dusts and baits is required. All German Cockroach work is guaranteed with a monthly service after 90 days.
Frequently Asked Questions About Roaches
Is it possible to get rid of roaches and keep them from coming back?
Cockroaches can be eliminated from your home or office. However, reinfestations can occur depending on several factors, including the particular type of roach, where you home or business is located, and the condition of the building. In addition to indoor cockroach control, regular outdoor monthly treatments are recommended to reduce the chances of reinfestations.
What kind of cockroaches do we have in Las Vegas?
There are several different types of cockroaches found in Las Vegas and throughout Southern Nevada. These include the German Cockroach, Oriental Cockroach, and American Cockroach. The most difficult to eradicate is the German Cockroach, which can vary in color (tan to almost black) and size (.50 – .63 inches in length), and reproduces faster than other types of roaches.
What attracts cockroaches to my home?
Cockroaches are generally attracted to accessible food and grease, including leftovers sitting on your counter, food in your trash cans, dirty dishes left in the sink, grease around the stove and crumbs dropped on the floor. Cockroaches are also attracted to moisture, so keep an eye out for leaky pipes or damp areas. These are some reasons roaches may be coming into your home.
Are cockroaches harmful?
Cockroaches are known as pests because they can be harmful to people, particularly if you have a large infestation. Roaches are likely to carry bacteria and pathogens because they often live in unsanitary areas, including sewers, bathrooms, and garbage bins. These pathogens can cause diseases, such as diarrhea and colera, and viral outbreaks. It’s always best to eliminate cockroaches immediately before an infestation becomes worse.
What is the lifespan of a cockroach?
If roaches have a food and water supply and are left undisturbed, they have been known to live anywhere from 1-2 years. However, there are environmental factors and other conditions that can affect the lifespan of a roach.
