How Often Should You Treat for Roaches?

Generally, you can benefit from proactive inspections and treatments every three to six months. If you find yourself facing a severe or more persistent infestation, you will likely need more frequent treatments. Do you want to know what is best for your property specifically? Consult us! We would gladly assess your property and develop a treatment schedule that meets your needs. 

Personalize Cockroach Solutions

The exact control methods we use will depend on the nature of the infestation and the species of cockroach. However, there are some general things we always do. 

These include the following:

  • Inspection: We always start with an inspection to figure out how cockroaches have gotten inside. We will also evaluate the scope of the infestation and identify what species of cockroach we are dealing with. The information we gather will allow us to develop a tailored treatment plan.
  • Barrier exclusion: Cockroaches often enter properties through small holes or cracks, drains, and gaps near electrical sockets and switch plates. Knowing this, we will take care to seal these problem areas using silicone-based caulk and other methods.
  • Treatment: We will treat affected areas using products designed to eliminate specific roach species. For example, we use residual roach sprays for German roaches and bait stations for American roaches.
  • Clean up: Roaches can wreak havoc on your insulation and leave your air ducts filthy. Not to worry, though. We can replace insulation, clean ducts, and thoroughly sanitize other affected areas.

Don't Let Cockroaches Invade Your Home

Cockroaches are more than just unsightly pests—they pose serious health risks to you and your family. These resilient insects can contaminate food, trigger allergies, and spread harmful bacteria and pathogens. If you suspect a cockroach infestation, taking immediate action is crucial to prevent the problem from escalating.

At Universal Pest & Termite in Virginia Beach, VA, our experienced pest control specialists are trained to effectively eliminate cockroaches and prevent future infestations. We use safe and environmentally friendly methods to rid your home of these pests, ensuring your peace of mind.

Signs of a cockroach infestation include:

  • Visible cockroach sightings
  • Droppings resembling coffee grounds or pepper flakes
  • A musty odor in areas where cockroaches are present
  • Damage to food packaging or household items

Don’t let cockroaches invade your home. Contact Universal Pest & Termite today for professional cockroach control services.

Tips for Preventing Roaches in Your Home or Business 

You can do many things to reduce the likelihood of roaches infesting your home or business. 

Below are five tips for keeping roach-free:

  1. Clean your spaces: Regularly clean and sanitize your kitchens, bathrooms, and storage spaces. Doing so will prevent food crumbs, spills, and other potential food sources from attracting roaches. 
  2. Address water sources: Cockroaches like moisture. This means it is important to fix leaks, dry up any standing water, and keep your bathtubs and sinks dry.
  3. Store food properly: Do not leave food out in the open, especially not overnight. This goes for pet food, too. Keep all food in airtight containers that roaches cannot get into.
  4. Declutter: Cockroaches will hide in cluttered areas. As such, you should avoid having clutter in your home or business and outside of it.
  5. Recycle cardboard as soon as possible: Cockroaches feed on cardboard. Also, they can easily hide in piles of it. After you get a package, be sure to get rid of the box it came in promptly.
