German Cockroaches

German Cockroach Control in Houston

Let Preventive Pest Control Get Rid of Your Problems Today

The German cockroach is one of the most prolific cockroaches in Texas. Not only are they smaller in size and generally tend to live in larger colonies of considerably greater numbers, but they can create these colonies incredibly quickly. Because they can reproduce at an alarming rate in optimal circumstances, it’s not uncommon for just a couple of cockroaches to create a colony of dozens or even hundreds in the span of a few months. Dealing with German cockroaches is unique as well—because they have such immense numbers, they often require multiple visits with multiple treatments in order to get rid of the problem for good. This is why German cockroach treatments require multiple visits and why each visit has an extra charge over a regular cockroach control visit.

The Facts About German Cockroaches

German cockroaches can easily be distinguished from other types of roaches by their size and color: they are smaller than many other roaches that invade our homes, and they are typically a lighter brown color with distinct black stripes going down the body. Also, unlike most other species of cockroach, the German cockroach is incapable of flying. German Cockroaches also almost exclusively exist where humans do: they are a common pest in homes, apartments, office buildings, restaurants, and anywhere else where people are.

As we mentioned previously, German cockroaches tend to reproduce incredibly quickly, and this is largely due to a unique trait whereby the female carries the egg capsules (ootheca) until they are ready to hatch. This helps to ensure a high survival rate of the young, creating larger colonies far faster. If food and water are available to them readily, reproduction can happen even faster.

We Will Eliminate Your German Cockroach Problem

Preventive Pest Control has the tools and experience to bring your German cockroach infestation under control, however, this almost always requires multiple visits. Because of their ability to reproduce at the rate that they are capable of, these visits require follow up treatments and inspections to ensure your problem is addressed as it should be. It does not take long for a colony that is only mostly-destroyed to quickly re-establish itself.

Our technicians use several methods of treatment to bring a German Cockroach infestation under control. Initially, the most important method of control for German Cockroaches is sanitation. We will work with our customers on our initial inspection and help them see areas where German Cockroaches may be feeding and have them eliminate the trouble areas to make our treatments work at an optimal level.

Other very effective treatments options include:

  • Strategically placing granule and gel baits
  • Residual dust for extended control in wall and outlet voids
  • Growth regulators to inhibit reproduction
  • Vacuuming visible roaches to bring an immediate reduction in live roaches
