Cockroaches

Of the many different types of cockroaches in North America, the German cockroach is the most common. In Calgary, our pest control service technicians find German cockroaches just about anywhere, including restaurants, hotels, commercial properties and residential homes. German Cockroaches start out by colonizing kitchen and bathroom areas, where they can be close to heat, moisture and their food sources. Solving a German Cockroach problem requires the pest control service technician understand how reproductive rates, food attractants, and harbourage areas work to the roaches’ favour. At Peregrine, our pest control service technicians have the experience to solve the most stubborn German cockroach issues.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR

German Cockroaches start out by colonizing kitchen and bathroom areas where they can be close to heat, moisture and their food sources. In the kitchen, if you pull out the stove and/or dishwasher, you may find cockroaches scurrying for safety. If you take a bright flashlight and look in the gaps between the cabinets and the walls, you may find roaches silently lurking. If you have a drawer in the kitchen where you store plastic shopping bags, this is a favourite spot for German Cockroaches.
Eliminating German cockroaches can be difficult due to their high reproduction rates and the fact that the female carries her egg sack until the last possible moment. This minimizes the possibility of other predators eating her young.

How to Identify a Cockroach

The German Cockroach is the most common cockroach in Canada. It can be recognized by the two dark, lengthwise stripes that run from the head to the base of its wings (though it cannot fly). They are prolific breeders with each egg capsule containing up to 40 eggs that hatch after only 45 days. German Cockroaches are very successful because of their high reproduction rates and because the female hangs on to its egg sack until the last minute, which means a higher survival rate for the nymphs. Visually, if you can’t see live cockroaches, take a bright flashlight and look in cracks and crevices in kitchen cupboards, the door hinges, and so on. What you are looking for is signs of pepper. This is the excrement of the German Cockroach.

OUR SOLUTION

Solving a cockroach issue is a complex process that requires patience and attention to detail. The initial population reduction of cockroaches is relatively easy. The goal is to eliminate 100% of the cockroaches; this is where the hard work begins. At Peregrine, we always provide a minimum of two applications as part of our cockroach programs. 50% of the cockroach programs require a minimum of 2-5 services. This is due to high numbers of cockroaches that have been in the structure for an extended period of time. We use several tools, including commercial vacuums, gel baits, glueboards, and liquid chemicals to solve a cockroach infestation. One of the best tools is the pest control service technician’s ability to be methodical, observant, and a keen detective.

COMMON CONCERNS

Why use gel baits and a commercial vacuum to solve a cockroach job?

On the initial service using a commercial vacuum cleaner to remove as many cockroaches as visible will reduce the overall population by a minimum 50% instantly. Following up and applying gel baits in areas where cockroaches are hiding will eliminate the remaining roaches. This is an efficient process that overall requires less chemical when compared to traditional liquid applications.

Who is the best type of service technician to get you cockroach free?

The best service technician is a service technician who is methodical. By this, we mean that they are focused on the task and literally start with one piece of furniture and then move to the next and the next, until they are done. In the kitchen this means pulling out kitchen drawers, stoves, fridges, and dishwashers. It also means inspecting kitchen appliances such as coffee makers, microwaves, and toasters, as they could potentially harbour cockroaches.

What value are glueboards when trying to solve a cockroach infestation?

Glueboards are probably as old as cockroaches themselves (well, nearly). They are an under-valued tool in the pest control industry. When a pest control service technician is on site, what they get is a picture in time; they will base their decisions on what they are seeing, but a glueboard works 24 hours a day. It has a strong work ethic. When the pest control service technician returns to follow up, they can see cockroach activity based on what has been captured on the glueboard. It is a very powerful tool.

Luis N.Calgary
Knowledgable

They were friendly and helpful (even dealing with a nervous nelly like me). I think there were about 15 e-mails over the 2 days trying to help me calm down about what was going on. They never got snarky or made me feel stupid for asking questions.
