Cockroach Extermination & Removal for Wilkes-Barre, Scranton, Allentown, and Surrounding Areas

There are many different species of cockroaches throughout the world.  In the northeast region of the United States, we deal with a handful of them, including German roaches, American roaches, oriental roaches, and Pennsylvania wood roaches.

The most problematic of them is the German Roach.  This cockroach is a truly prolific breeder and they carry a large number of bacteria, viruses, and parasites in their feces and on their bodies which can cause dysentery, diarrhea, salmonella, and other serious health concerns.  In addition to all that, They are also a leading cause of childhood asthma due to allergic reactions to the roaches themselves.

How to identify a german cockroach:

The German Roach is typically the size of a dime or penny, they are very fast and like to hide in crevices and wall voids.  Adults are elongated and are light brown/caramel colored with two darker racing stripes going straight down their backs.

Signs of a cockroach infestation: 

The first thing you’ll notice is the insects themselves.  They are nocturnal, so most often they are spotted at night when you enter your kitchen or bathroom and turn on the light.  You’ll typically see them scurrying around trying to find a hiding spot usually between cracks and crevices.

If you begin to notice them during the day time hours, this means the population level has grown to the point where they are running out of what they consider to be good hiding spots and are trying to find new places.  You’ll typically find roaches in or around your appliances, cabinets, and drawers.

You can also see their droppings.  German Roach droppings resemble black pepper, you’ll sometimes see them stuck to the cabinet and drawer surfaces.
