German Roach Flush Out

Cockroach Control & Extermination

German Cockroach Pest Control Experts

Pest Control Technician Spraying Cockroaches

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.

Cockroach Flush Out Guidelines & Preparation Information

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.

How to Prepare for German Roach Control Flush Out

People, Pets, and Medical Conditions

  • Residents should plan on being out of the house for a minimum of (2) two hours.
  • All pets (dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, rodents, and fish) MUST be removed from premises for a minimum of (2) two hours.
  • Fish tanks not able to be removed should be covered with a plastic covering (trash bags or plastic drop cloth) and sealed in such a way that no chemical can contaminate the water supply.
  • Progressive Pest Control cannot be held responsible for any injury suffered by any pet that is left inside the residence.
  • If any residents have respiratory problems or are/may be pregnant, we suggest checking with your doctor for instructions before treatment.

Food, Food Areas, and Storage Areas

  • Empty out ALL cupboards, ALL drawers, and pantry areas.
  • All items that are moved from the kitchen cabinets are to be moved into a separate room and covered with a thick/heavy blanket or plastic drop cloth.
  • Nothing should be on the countertops or on top of or next to the refrigerator.
  • Empty EVERYTHING out of bathroom cabinets.
  • Empty everything out of any linen closets if you would like them sprayed.
  • Have everything OFF OF THE FLOOR AND SHELVES of closets you would like to be sprayed. If clothes are left hanging in the closet they may have an odor and should be washed before wearing.
  • Any areas you want to be sprayed must have all items removed or IT WILL NOT BE SPRAYED.
  • DO NOT SCRUB AFTER WE SPRAY! Cupboards should be wiped out with a dry cloth. Countertops should be thoroughly washed before preparing any food on them.


After Your Flush Out Service

You may see roach activity for 7-10 days after the flush out is completed, THIS IS NORMAL. Any visible roaches that are sprayed directly will die immediately.

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.
