Begin a pest control technician I do a lot of roach treatments. Call them roach clean out.

This is an interesting term the proper term would be German roach clean out or German roach extermination. 

As a customer books an appointment as an exterminator I show up in the first thing I usually hear is do you have roaches because of our neighbor. Another thing I hear is we moved in to this property and they have roaches or our neighbor moved out and all the roaches came over to our home. 

As a professional I want to assure that it is no shame in having roaches. some people think heavy roaches means that you’re dirty person I get a lot of clients that tell me the minute I walk in to their home is that we clean up all the time , we’re not dirty people so I don’t know why we have roaches. I want to assure you that having roaches doesn’t mean you’re necessarily dirt but it can be the reason that the infestation might be as heavy or difficult to handle. So being dirty doesn’t introduce German roaches but it definitely allows and invitation to stay.

Remember pest by Are uncomfortable disgusting and annoying. So nobody really wants them if they had a choice. So there are hundreds of reasons how roaches made their way into your home. Here are a few possible scenarios.

A friend brought them over unknowingly.

You moved into a place that already had them unknowingly.

The apartment next to you has a large infestation of general roaches and some made their way over to your apartment.

Maybe a roach hitched a ride in some groceries or inside a delivery bag of a food.

They were brought over in a bag in a sleepover that your kids had.

But let me be perfectly clear it is very unlikely that german roaches from your neighbor’s house crawl all the way over to your house. For this to happen there needs to be unique and perfect conditions. First of all German roaches by nature  a exterior pest once they find a home or an area inside they usually never travel outside. Second temperature make a factor if the weather is too cold or too hot outside the roach would turn around back to a comfortable temperature in the home. Third roaches are nocturnal so it would almost be impossible for a roach in the middle of night to leave a home with a plentiful food source to exit the home and navigate their way all the way over to your home to thrive and build another infestation in your home. Plus it would have to be more than one or at least the one would have an egg Case. 

Now that being said as an exterminator I’ve seen a lot of crazy things. So let’s look at the unique and perfect conditions maybe on a gray perfect temperature day if the infestation at a home was super crazy,maybe food was thrown away into a trash can outside. The infestation developed in the trash, if the trash can  and was close enough to the neighbor’s house. The roaaches could make their way over to an item that could be carried in to the neighbor’s house to build an infestation. But again a situations like this is  rare But not impossible.

A comment scenario we get is a a new tenant moves into a property unknowingly that has German roaches not enough to notice when examining the property also examining it during the day when roaches are hiding. So the big day comes moving day and over time in the new property the roaches feed on the new food supply brought in night after night as the infestation grows and grows till Monday you see one in the morning.

Another common scenario is that a new apartment neighbor the unit next to you just got some new tenants that brought some roommates with them and not the ones that pay bills so the infestation gets large enough that the roaches start looking for different food sources and boom they make their way into your unit.

Now that we’ve talked about a few scenarios on how you may have got the roaches to let’s talk about how to get rid of them. Good news and bad news The bad news is that German roaches are one of the hardest pests to get rid of. The good news is you hire a knowledgeable experienced exterminator you can definitely get rid of them. Over the decades the pest control industry has come up with more effective products and techniques so experience exterminators can definitely eliminate them for you.

Here’s some advice on dealing with German roaches.

Get an experienced exterminator

Make sure you hire a knowledgeable and experienced exterminator. Pathfinder Pest Control has been specializing in killing roaches over 7 years, with experience far longer than that.  Five or more years at the company has been in business it’s sufficient and makes sure the pest control technician that handles your property has been doing it for a few years. You can’t confirm this by checking out the BBB or Google

Request a follow-up treatment

Another thing to note is that when dealing with German cockroaches most treatments take more than one treatment 2 at minimum. When booking the appointment it is wise to schedule two appointments initial and a follow-up if the secretary or the salesman only sells you on one treatment for German roaches it probably don’t know what they’re doing or they’re going to sell you something else when they get to your home.

Follow preparation instructions

And third preparation before and after treatment is crucial when dealing with roaches. Make sure you follow all instructions details given by the exterminator to the letter. This usually means moving items from cabinets making sure pets are put away or come when technician shows up and cleaning dishes and putting food away before and after treatment.

In conclusion

Filth and dirt are not the cause of roaches But are perfect environments for roaches. There are many ways to get roaches and it is very difficult to eliminate them. It is definitely possible to get rid of roaches if you hire a experienced pest control But as long as you follow preparation instructions and after treatment instructions you can definitely live pest-free.
