Get Rid of Roaches

The first thing you should do? Contact us. The most common roach we see around here is the American cockroach. This nasty invader does pose health risks to your family or business. That’s why, proper sanitation and eliminating their habitat is effective for roach control. Especially when combined with vacuuming, monitoring, and a professional baiting program. The careful sealing of cracks to help reduce or eliminate entry points is recommended as well. Because cockroaches are nocturnal and experts at hiding, successful roach control requires special equipment, materials and expertise.

American roaches and many other household pests are part of our every other month home maintenance program. German roaches on the other hand are a separate service which is $100 – $125 for the initial treatment with $50 monthly follow ups.

What Type Of Roach do You Have?


Some cockroach species in IL, such as the American cockroach prefer to nest outdoors. They often wander into a structure in search of food or are attracted to light shining from within your home. Treatment of these species centers around finding and treating their nesting sites such as meter boxes and other damp, cool environments. Chemical baits may also be used as cockroaches will often take the bait back to their nesting sites for others to feed on.


Of all the species of cockroach in Illinois, it is the ones that choose to nest inside that are the most difficult to control. The German cockroach loves the warm environment a home or office provides. German cockroaches are especially difficult to control because of the rapid rate at which they reproduce. They often find their way into your home inside second hand kitchen appliances or boxes. Aggressive treatment using a combination of baits and sprays is needed to break the life-cycle of these unwelcome guests.
