How To Get Rid Of Cockroaches

Call Eastern when you have a cockroach infestation because we will design the right program to fit your needs. Roaches are capable of transmitting a number of diseases. With the ability to contaminate food sources, emit pheromones, and shed the outer layer of their skin, cockroaches can spread disease and illness through a variety of modes.

Cockroach infestations are most commonly identified by seeing the pests themselves out in the open. Here is a list of the prevalent roaches we treat:

American Cockroach

American Cockroaches- Also known as Waterbugs, this cockroach is a rather large species at about 1 ½ inches in length. Identified by the tan and yellow pattern their head, American cockroaches are extremely sensory creatures with heightened detection abilities using their antennae. They generally come into a structure through drains that have not been used, often in basements.

German Cockroach

German Cockroaches- This species is 'tropical' and thus attracted to warm/moist environments. They travel to places of higher humidity to lay their egg sack, also known as an "ootheca". German cockroaches are a smaller species about ¾ of an inch long and are often identified by the two black lines on the backs of their heads. They are often found in kitchens and baths and will feed on all food sources including toothpaste on toothbrushes, glue, pet food and grease.

Controlling cockroaches is challenging and is truly a cooperative venture. Eastern utilizes the most effective and least hazardous materials. We are most likely to have success if conditions conducive for cockroaches to enter and infest are eliminated.

Cockroaches can enter the building in bags, deliveries and boxes. They will feed on any food items and will grow in numbers very quickly. They tend to nest close to where you see them. The Eastern technician will treat the area they are seen with tamper proof bait stations and inject roach gel bait into cracks and crevices and void spaces where roaches hide and enter living areas. The roaches take the bait back to the nest and feed the poison to each other.

We have developed some recommendations in order to ensure that new pest infestations do not develop and spread. Based on many years of experience in treating pest problems Eastern has offered the following recommendations to follow.


Store all food products including coffee, tea, sugar, salt, jelly etc. in closed tight lidded hard plastic or metal containers. Please clean all food debris from your countertops, tables and other areas where food is consumed on a daily basis.

Please do not throw out wet or moist drinks or food in garbage receptacles but instead wash out food and drink containers in a sink before disposing.

Try to keep all storage materials off the floor to eliminate nesting areas and allow for thorough inspections.

Clean all food debris from the floor daily. This includes areas under storage shelves and behind equipment as much as possible.

All grease that accumulates on the floor, cooking appliances, food preparation areas, walls, sink areas and all other surfaces. Roaches will feed on grease and our material will lose its effectiveness on and under grease.

Garbage containers must be cleaned regularly so food and grease do not build up and all garbage must be placed in sealed bags inside trash containers nightly.

We at Eastern Pest Protection are committed to ensuring that people live in a pest free environment. We work cooperatively with our customers to make this happen.
