Roach and cockroach Extermination in Sonoma County CA

There are three main kinds of cockroaches: the German cockroach, the American cockroach which is larger and can fly, and the Oriental cockroach which prefers 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.

The German cockroach is the most common roach in the Sonoma area. They are found in houses, apartments, restaurants and even offices. One female can produce 35,000 cockroaches in a year, so it is important to get rid of them as soon as they are discovered. They can transmit bacteria like Salmonella from place to place. TIP: Don’t leave pet food out at night. Cockroaches are active a night and may contaminate your pet’s food. In your bathroom, they are attracted to toothpaste.

German roaches are typical in Sonoma County.

Successful extermination of roaches can be done in only one or two treatments. Using our years of experience, we look for the location of the infestation and we use targeted spraying to knock out the infestation. At RatsToRoaches, we use a low-toxic approach to get the maximum effectiveness with the minimum toxins. Because there are different kinds of roaches, we will determine the right bait for your pest. We use growth regulators to interfere with the breeding cycle and interrupt the creation of new cockroaches.

Oriental cockroaches are harder to eradicate than 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.

"Had a really positive experience with this company. Jon was on time and super knowlegable. He answered all of our questions and really took the stress out of the whole experience.

The one thing that set them apart is that they tell you the price upfront, and don't try to rope you into a contract that way countless pest companies in the area do.

10/10 would recommend to anyone who wants fast service and a trustworthy and honest technician!"

Don't Spray Food Prep Area

Limit over-the-counter sprays that may contaminate your home food preparation areas or harm pets. If you spray the floor, toxins can be absorbed through your pet's feet, or ingested during grooming.

Cockroach Entrances

Over-the-counter sprays available at grocery and hardware stores are fast-acting repellents that will move the roaches from where you can see them to places where they are harder to find. Call us to get rid of ants, roaches, and silverfish effectively.
