Can we help Orkin rid our home of roaches?

Question: How can we help Orkin rid our home of cockroaches?

Answer: You can try a few methods on your own to help control cockroaches. Sources like pet food dishes, drains, dishwashers, trash cans, etc. should be maintained, cleaned and/or stored properly. Another step is to determine the source or entry point for the cockroaches.

German Cockroach

Some cockroaches, like the German cockroach, are primarily carried into the home. Be careful to inspect items such as used furniture or appliances for cockroaches before bringing them home. Outdoor cockroaches may invade under doors and through open windows.

Homeowners and the pest control professionals should collaborate to seal up the home as much as possible. Pest control professionals also can employ traps such as glue boards in areas where cockroaches may travel or hide. Yet another tool can be proper applications of products such as baits and residuals to cracks/crevices, harborage areas, and the exterior of the home. The actual plan and time to control cockroaches will vary by home and situation.
