German cockroaches are the most common roaches found in Restaurants, Apartments, Homes, and Hotels in the United States. Adults are between ½-5/8” long and coloring is tan to light brown with 2 dark brown stripes on the head. Roaches can be found anywhere in a structure but prefer warm above 70 degrees and humid spots. Roaches travel well in boxes, grocery bags, coats, purses and especially well in used furniture and appliances. They will travel along pipelines between apartments or floors. Do it yourself Roach spray products and bug bombs while great for contact killing, repel roaches from the area. We typically find Roaches in places they would not usually inhabit like bedrooms or neighboring apartments after these products were used.
The Ransford German Roach Difference
The first step toward being German Roach free is an inspection by our licensed, CORI and background checked technician. Followed by a thorough treatment starting with a HEPA vacuum to remove both alive and dead Roaches and their egg sacks. Vacuuming with a HEPA filter helps eliminate the airborne allergens roaches produce by trapping them in the filter. By removing these roaches it will immediately reduce the pest infestation and allow better future monitoring. Ransford will then apply Roach bait in the hard to reach cracks and crevices where Roaches love to hide. Powder will be applied as needed to pipelines where Roaches travel inside the walls. The final step is to apply a residual product to the perimeter of each room. All products are applied per manufacturer’s instructions and Massachusetts laws.
