Controlling cockroaches in your home begins with understanding how they enter, where they live and how they survive. Cockroaches are one of the most hated household pests. These flat, shiny insects are usually light brown, reddish brown or dark brown in color. They live and breed in dark, covered areas, carrying bacteria and filth around your home. It's not that easy to get rid of cockroaches, so it's best to know all about them and stop them from sneaking into your house. If you are past the prevention stage and these pests are already creeping around your home, don't worry. Because trained Ortho® Pest Control Service technicians are experts in eradicating all types of pests—especially cockroaches.
It's harder to control cockroaches because they've adapted pretty well to living with humans. Besides eating leather, glue, hair, flakes of dried skin or decaying organic matter, they also like to eat things we like (starches, sweets, grease and meat products). Unfortunately if your neighbors have them, they regularly sneak into your home. In addition to our service, here are a few tips to keep them at bay.
