Roaches in PAFebruary 20, 2008
There are only three or four species of Roaches that you will find in your home here in Lancaster and York, PA. The most popular by far, is the German Roach. Sometimes confused with Brown Banded Roaches, German Roaches are light brown and small. These guys multiply faster than rabbits. They always come from people bringing them in, or by an attached building that has an infestation. They do not live outside, and need to dwell with people to survive. Once impregnated, the female German Roach can release eggs at will. It’s kind of scary isn’t it? Well don’t fear, Dominion is here! We can get control of these roaches rather quickly. Maintaining control is recommended monthly.
Another roach commonly seen here is the Oriental Cockroach. Black and larger, they are found mostly in basements, but can be seen wondering around even on the 2nd floor. In Lancaster and York, PA, one can find oriental roaches living in the sewers and coming up dried out drains. Older structures seem to be more susceptible to oriental roaches. Spraying is not as effective as commercial granule baits for this roach which loves the cover of darkness. There will be a significant decrease of activity after our 1st service for oriental roaches. Maintaining control is recommended monthly.
The American Cockroach is the biggest that you will find in your home here in Lancaster and York, PA. These are the ones exterminators tell their “War Stories” about. They are a formidable foe, but with proper professional products mixed with experience, they don’t stand a chance against Dominion Pest Control. Although they are frightening to the home occupier, we can get and maintain control of these guys easily.
