Contact us at (954) 719-0289 to exterminate cockroaches.

Nobody wants to deal with roaches. It can be embarrassing since you will feel as if you are dirty or have not kept your house clean. Rest assured, it isn’t your fault! Roaches can invade even the cleanest properties, businesses, and homes. We’ve seen it a lot of times. How is this possible? Cockroaches go where there is warmth and light. Seeing them does not mean you are a dirty person!

Our exterminators can handle all different types of cockroaches. This page will discuss two main types of them found in Broward County, FL. These are the American and the German. Both of these are not good to have, but in our opinion one is worse than the other.

The American Cockroach

If you live anywhere near trees, then you probably have a hollow tree somewhere that’s perfect for this roach species to nest in. It’s common for residents to encounter these outside. Many people also find a few of them in their homes. They will often enter through cracks found near loose-fitting windows, or holes where electrical wires or pipes pass through. They usually won’t hide immediately when you turn on the lights.

The German Cockroach

This is a type that people think of when they think about roaches.  They’re typically about a half-inch in length and they have wings when they’re adults. If you notice one of these  in your home, then you need to call us immediately.

Once they’re in your home, they can lay egg capsules, which hatch in about three days after being deposited in your home. Each capsule contains 30 to 40 eggs. This means that within a few days of them entering your home, you could soon be dealing with 10s, if not 100s, depending on how many females there are.

They are active during the night, and do not like light. You will normally find them in places of warmth or moisture–so traditionally bathrooms, kitchens, and areas like those. You can also find them in attics, areas where there is garbage, crawl spaces, and basements.

Everyone knows that they are a disgusting insect. Plus, Not only are they disgusting, but they have been known to transmit food poisoning, salmonella and typhoid. If you think you have cockroaches, please be sure to call (954) 719-0289 and we’ll send out our Broward County roach exterminators to your home or business as soon as possible.
