Cockroach Exterminator

We Specialize in all your Cockroach Solution Needs


Cockroaches have a bad name for a reason. Infestations are usually a problem in restaurants, but they can be found in anywhere where moisture, waste and food is available. Cockroaches can carry diseases that will contaminate food storages.

You may not even know that cockroaches are there until their population grows too big to get rid of on your own. There are a number of different varieties of cockroaches, but virtually all carry diseases, breed quickly, love to nest in homes and are tough to get rid of. Growing to around two inches in length, some have wings, most breeds don’t fly.

Cockroaches are a common household invader throughout the greater Pittsburgh, PA area. While not as prevalent as their southern neighbors, many homeowners experience issues with cockroaches. The most common types of cockroaches found throughout Pittsburgh include; the American cockroach, German cockroach, and Oriental cockroach.

How Do Cockroaches Find Their Way Into Your Home?

There is no shortage of ways cockroaches can get into your home. If you have food and water and live in an area habitable to cockroaches, they will usually find you. They can get in by sneaking into items you carry in from the outside, squeezing through cracks in your home’s exterior, or getting in through drains or sewer pipes. If you live in an apartment and your neighbor lets cockroaches in, you can bet they will be visiting you soon, too.

So, what’s the harm of having a few cockroaches in your home? Despite the fact that many people find them to be unsightly, allowing even a few cockroaches free rein in your home can lead to huge problems.


Why Cockroaches Need to Be Removed From Your Home

Cockroaches love to build their nests in locations that have an ample food source, warmth, and water. Roaches aren’t just gross to look at, they breed quickly.

They will continue to reproduce all year long with these elements. Chances are if you see one cockroach, there’s a whole population you won’t see. They’re really good at hiding and are evasive. When you see one, that’s a strong indication you already have an infestation and need to call the best pest control company in the Pittsburgh area to have their roach exterminator come out and take care of the problem.

They leave a trail in their waste, leaving a bacterial trail on surfaces in which they crawl. As stated before, they can spread diseases and create issues for allergy and asthma sufferers from the debris they create from their skins, dead bodies and fecal matter. That’s right, even dead cockroaches can cause health problems, and the live ones can taint your food with dangerous bacteria like E. coli and salmonella. For your safety and the safety of your family, the quicker you get rid of those roaches, the better.
