Preparation and Expectations for Cockroach Control


Before Treatment:

Be prepared to show the technician all problem areas. Make sure that problem areas are cleared of clutter so that the area can be treated properly. People need to be out of the structure during the treatment and afterwards as directed by the product label. Pets will also need to be out of the structure or contained in a room not being treated. Do not use any over the counter or organic pest control products prior to or after our service; doing so may prevent our chemicals from working properly.

Roaches in homes and structures are more common than most people think. They hitch a ride on furniture, appliances, clothing and virtually any box or bag that is in or near an infested structure. The biggest problem with the German roach in this area is that they reproduce so fast. They are the most common roach in this area and the biggest pest when it comes to invading a structure. This means a small population can easy blow up into a major infestation in a short time if not treated correctly.


Although they are quite hardy and can survive in the harshest of environments, the German roaches have the basic needs of food, water and shelter. Sanitation is one of the most important control measures for German roach elimination. Keep sinks, counters, and surface areas dry and free of food and grease particles.

Interior Residual Application:

Applied to active areas and common entry points to kill as they contact.
Interior Baiting Application: Bait is inserted into cracks and crevices, inside of cupboards and behind refrigerators and stoves.

What to Expect:

An infestation did not happen over-night and solving the problem will not happen over-night either. Please realize that roaches don’t drop dead as soon as they crawl across the treated areas. It takes a little time from the moment they cross the material to the time they die. If you see them dead, it means the treatment is working!

After Treatments:

Clean up dead roaches daily, eggs will still hatch off of dead roaches. Do not wash the treated areas with chemical cleaner for 14 days. You may sweep or vacuum the areas daily if desired. Do not use any over the counter or organic pest control products for 30 days, doing so may prevent our chemicals from working correctly.


Please be patient and allow the treatment the necessary time to totally solve your problem. It is imperative that you wait 30 days before any re-treatment to allow the materials to do their job. To treat before the 30 days is only putting new material over a treatment that is already working. The label is the law and may limit how often a residence may be treated so that you will not be over-exposed to materials.
