Discovering a cockroach infestation at home can be deeply unsettling. These resilient creatures are typically active at night, so spotting them during the day signals a severe problem. The presence of cockroaches not only induces natural stress but also poses health risks, particularly for asthma sufferers and children.

There are over 4,000 species of cockroaches in the world, and 55 of them live in the US. However, there are four common cockroach species that we run into daily.
When a Hern’s Pest Control specialist enters a home with cockroach problems, the first step is to search for infected areas. Flashlights pointed in the right directions can identify the hidden locations. The most common hiding places are under the sink, shelves, cabinets, and behind the dishwasher and fridge, but it can be any area that has food. The search usually tells us the cockroach species that we are dealing with and how to approach its extermination in the best way possible.
We employ many forms of treatment including bait, crack & crevice application, and insecticidal dust. None of the other steps are as important as using the right bait to lure the cockroaches out of hiding. We have different types of baits in our arsenal, including gel, liquid, and solid bait, and their use depends on the situation. The goal is not to kill them immediately but rather to have them consume the bait and then retreat to die, preferably ingesting more bait as they bite on each other due to their cannibalistic nature.
Cleaning is a vital part of our procedure. In most cases, it is the kitchen that is the most problematic area of all. Our licensed professionals use special vacuums that can successfully pick up even the smallest debris and dirt. It is also beneficial to remove all the food around the kitchen to ensure the cockroaches do not come back.
Sealing is the best way to prevent a cockroach infestation from happening again. Once we have eliminated them from a house, it is essential to make sure they do not find another way into the home. The sealing method is particularly useful in apartments or adjoining house units because it reduces the odds of them going back and forth. Sealing includes caulk, foam, and sometimes copper mesh on windows, doors, and plumbing.
Our final stage is to guide homeowners on maintaining their cockroach-free home so that it stays free of these critters. Hern’s Pest Control specialists will perform a detailed inspection once again to make sure no cockroaches are in sight.
