Question: How long does it take to get rid of roaches?

Answer: Cockroaches control can be one of the hardest tasks to complete, so the time to get rid of roaches depends upon many things - some of which are:

  • How many cockroaches, their distribution and the species of cockroach(es) currently causing problems in the home or business?

  • Is cleanliness lacking?

  • Does excessive clutter and cockroach hiding places exist?

  • Are Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques part of the control plan. If the control plan involves only using cockroach insecticides and not reducing hiding places, access to moisture and reduction to foods preferred by cockroaches, then it may take a long time to eliminate or markedly reduce cockroaches.
