COMMON LOS ANGELES COUNTY COCKROACHES
There are three basic types of Roaches that we see in Southern California: American, Oriental and German. Out of those, the American and German are the most common structural roach. American Roaches have many nick names. ‘Water bugs’, ‘Sewer Roaches,’ etc. America Roaches are larger about two inches and reddish-brown solid color. American Roaches like to live in dark, damp warmer areas like sewers, drain pipes, and other utility areas. They are commonly seen inside homes once or twice per year as they make their way in using garage areas, doors and windows, structure gaps and drains. American roaches fly and are attracted to lights, so they are often seen outside in the summertime on patios, walkway and yard areas. Naturally, American roaches live in thick brush areas and ground cover such as mulch. Planter areas, Ivy areas, and others like them are good areas for American Roaches to live.
Service for American Roaches in a combination of exclusion and chemical treatments. Treatments are less invasive and may require moderate preparation and areas need to be vacated for about half a day for interior treatments. Some variables include crawl spaces, plumbing gaps, floor drains and storage areas. Service costs start at $185 for exterior. Quarterly Regular Service is recommended for long term control and management depending on exterior variables.
German Roaches are more of an ‘interior roach’ and enter an area by being transferred by a person to person or an item. German Roaches are smaller, under an inch, and are light brown with a black stripe down the middle. Under the right conditions, German Roaches will also travel from one area to the next via wall gaps, cracks or utility lines and areas. Appliances are a quite common hiding and harboring place for German Roaches. German Roaches are commonly seen and start in kitchen and bathroom areas and are the focal point of service. German Roaches are seen in darker areas of cabinets, behind or within items, under items, on the counter, or in the open when the lights come on. German Roaches breed the fastest and can quickly reach higher activity levels and become an issue if not addressed properly. For this reason, we recommend a Roach Clean Out Service be performed as soon as German Roaches are confirmed.
