Waterbugs and Oriental Roaches

Oriental Cockroach Water BugThere are three main kinds of cockroaches, the German cockroach, the American cockroach which is larger and can fly, and the Oriental cockroach which is often called a Waterbug because they prefer dark, moist places. You might find them around compost heaps, sewers, drains, damp crawl spaces and other damp dark places. Food, water and a place to hide are the three things cockroaches need.

Oriental cockroaches are harder to eradicate that ordinary roaches. They require different techniques to eliminate the adults and a separate technique to eliminate the immature roaches (nymphs). We specialize in determining exactly what pest is present and we use the correct technique and the right products to stop the problem. Call us with your pest problems. We can help. Free estimates.
