The German cockroach is one of the most common household cockroaches in the world and can be found throughout the Las Vegas area. Roaches are regularly found infesting restaurants, food processing facilities, hotels, and residential areas.
The cockroach may be seen in the day occasionally if there is a large population or if they have been disturbed. However, most often you will see them in the evening because they are most active at night. The cockroach is very resilient and often difficult to control with regular pest control treatments, especially those commonly found at home and garden stores.
This cockroach is also smaller than many other species so it can more easily hide and fit into very small cracks and crevices to evade humans. The German cockroach is omnivorous and a scavenger. They particularly like starch, sugary foods, grease, and meats. In certain situations where there is a shortage of foodstuffs, they may eat household items such as soap, glue, and toothpaste or they may even turn cannibalistic, often chewing on the wings and legs of each other.
Sanitation is the cornerstone of effective, long-lasting German cockroach control. Light infestations are common in homes although heavy, continuing infestations are usually associated with sloppy housekeeping. Food material must be eliminated as much as possible and harborage areas sealed where possible. Residual insecticides, dust, and baits and are necessary to control existing populations and to prevent their recurrence.
**ALL THE ABOVE ITEMS MUST BE DONE BEFORE THE TECHNICIAN ARRIVES**
During the service, a flushing agent is used to lure the hidden roaches out of the cracks and crevices. If the pest does not have immediate direct contact with the pesticide, it will later walk over the residual chemical and when it next cleans its antenna, will ingest the poison and die.
This is the reason you may see living roaches in the short period after the flush out. IF THE ROACH IS MOVING SLOWLY, IT IS DYING and no further treatment is needed.
