Types of Cockroaches Commonly Found in Homes

German Cockroach

German cockroaches often make themselves at home in our kitchens and bathrooms, hiding their eggs in secluded spots. Attracted to water, these pests, which grow to a size of 13-16mm in length, often gravitate towards moist conditions, living comfortably amongst leaky pipes and wet spaces. It's their love for darkness and ability to find a hiding place in small cracks and crevices that make them difficult to spot and eliminate.

American Cockroach

American cockroaches, critical protagonists in Canada's pest sphere. This species is significantly larger, boasting a body length of 29-53mm, and is most recognizable by its reddish-brown color and visible wings. Although these roaches are not as infestation-prone as their German counterparts, their affinity for warm environments leads them to households with unfettered access to food and water, such as kitchens and garbage disposal areas.

Brown-banded Cockroach

Brown-banded cockroaches measure just 10-15mm in length. Distinguished by distinctive light brown bands across their brown colour bodies, they have a preference for drier, warmer areas. This draws them towards appliances and other hidden areas inside homes and businesses.

Oriental Cockroach

The Oriental Cockroach is known for its shiny dark body and has a length of 18-27mm. Unlike the others, this type of cockroach thrives anywhere cool and damp, such as basements and drains. Oriental cockroaches can be tough to eliminate due to their preference for dark, inaccessible regions.

Let's investigate into our thorough, five-step approach for cockroach control.

Step 1- Our Best Available Exterminator Algorithm

Deploying resources effectively first begins with our respected exterminator algorithm. We gather critical information about cockroach infested areas in your property and match you with our highest skilled exterminator, especially depending on the behavior of the cockroach species you're fighting.

Step 2 - Get a Free Inspection and Quote

Following the exterminator match, we initiate consultation and inspection, at zero cost, because roaches may already be present. Our experts assess the severity of the infestation, identifying species specifics and infestation hotspots, such as around garbage or appliances. With insights gained, we finalize a quote, transparently stating the cost of cockroach extermination.

Step 3 - Tailored Treatment Based on the Level of Infestation

To effectively get rid of cockroaches, we tailor our treatment depending on the level of infestation, including removing droppings, and the specific cockroach species. Using a dynamic blend of chemical and non-chemical methods like gel baits and sticky traps, we aim at delivering a one-two punch of fast-acting extermination and long-term control.

Step 4 - Leave behind to Cockroaches!

Once the treatment protocol is implemented, results become evident quickly. We hold resilient cockroaches away day and night, creating a safer, cleaner environment for you.

Step 5 - Follow-Up Services (If Needed)

Lastly, our responsibility doesn't end with a one-time deal. We offer follow-up visits based on assessment of the infestation level post-treatment. If roaches reappear, we're ready to fight back.

Our final aim? Crafting cockroach-free spaces for you, creating happier, healthier environments in Canadian homes and businesses.

Our Safety and Environmental Considerations

Placing paramount importance on safety and environmental considerations, we carry out strategies designed to comprehensibly yet responsibly deal with cockroach infestations.

Pet-Friendly Cockroach Extermination

Consistent with our responsibility towards pets, we integrate pet-friendly treatments in cockroach extermination. Our strategy incorporates the use of products such as gel baits and sticky traps. These tools, due to their specific cargo of insecticides, are debased in their harm quotient while holding high efficiency standards against species of cockroaches. Methods, by design, ensure that pets aren't affected while cockroach populations are diminished.

Eco-Friendly Roach Control Treatments

Our approach integrates environment-friendly techniques for roach control. Resorting to the use of organic pesticides, we curtail the environmental impact caused due to regular extermination practices. The products we use are well-formulated to discern adult cockroaches from other forms of life, thereby posing no threat to other species living in and around the property. These pesticides, essentially, target the moisture attracted by cockroaches, a key element in their lifecycle, ensuring a precise, yet eco-conscious extermination.

Remember, it's crucial to know what to do before roach treatment begins to ensure the effectiveness of our approach. This includes cleaning specific areas and making your home ready for the extermination process.
