Using a combination of sprays and baits we can control cockroaches long term. Call us today, and say goodbye to your roach problems.

Cockroaches are not native to this area, or to the United States. The cockroaches hitchhiked on ships from Africa, Asia, and Europe. Fast forward 200 years, and now they are one of our top pests. The climate in the North-State is ideal for cockroaches. Warm humid days followed by nights that cool down. This allowed the roaches to hide during the warmer daytime hours and forage at night when it was cool.

They came for the climate and stayed for the food. The North-State has an abundance of food supply for roaches.  The area was founded by miners searching for gold. But then quickly became ag focused. The ag industry is what allowed the roaches to thrive.  Plenty of water and surplus food from ag created a mecca of food sources for cockroaches.

Indoor Nesting

This includes the infamous German cockroach and the little know Brown Banded Roach.  The most likely nesting spot is in your kitchen. I know, yuck. They will infest your cupboards and behind your appliances. One of their favorite places is behind the refrigerator. The heat from the coils and the moisture from the drain pan creates the perfect environment for them.

When this type of roach infests your kitchen, we need to be super aggressive to control them. Removal of kitchen items and food will need to be done. Then we can treat the inside of your cabinets and behind your appliances.  We at Gecko Pest Control are very proud of our ability to control these roaches!

Outdoor Nesting

This type of roach includes Oriental, American, and newly arrived Turkestan Roach.  This, very large, type of roach will nest outdoors. You will find them all over your yard. Take a look under rocks, in cracks, and water valve boxes. They hide out during the day and forage into your homes at night. These roaches are the big ones, from one inch to over 2 inches long. Our Year-Round Ten-Step program is perfect for these roaches. We use a combination of sprays and baits to completely control outdoor roaches.

Turkestan roaches are a special case. They are very similar to the other outdoor nesting roaches. But they are new to the area.  Turkestan roaches are a favorite food for reptile enthusiasts. They can order them over the internet.  Experts believe that the reptile enthusiasts allowed some roaches to escape, infesting nearly every city in the north state. The big problem with these roaches is the ability to reproduce. They produce more eggs and at a faster rate compared to other roaches. This has allowed the population of these cockroaches to explode. If you are concerned about Turkestan roaches, give us a call now. We have the expertise and experience to get them under control fast!
