Professional Cockroach Control Is The Way To Go For Your Lawrenceville Home

Professional Cockroach Control Is The Way To Go For Your Lawrenceville Home

If you find a cockroach in your house, what should you do? The response of Lawrenceville residents is mixed. Some shrug them off, believing that roaches are like all the other insects they find in their yards. Some are fearful and attempt to spray cockroaches into oblivion. We don't recommend doing either of these things. Cockroaches aren't like the beetles in your garden. They forage in dumpsters, trash receptacles, sewers, and drains. You should take immediate action to remove them from your home. But using cockroach poison, as some do, is not the way to go. These products don't work to arrest a cockroach infestation. You can spray all day, every day, and still have cockroaches. They can also make you sick. Join us as we tackle the difficult subject of how dangerous cockroaches can be and why DIY cockroach control can not only fall short but can actually increase the danger. We'll also share tips for getting rid of cockroaches naturally and discuss how professional pest control in Lawrenceville may offer the best solution. 

The Types Of Cockroaches That Invade Lawrenceville Homes


Know thy enemy. We have several pest cockroaches in Lawrenceville. Some are worse than others because they have a greater chance of making you sick and they're harder to control. The worst of all are German cockroaches. Here are a few reasons why:

  • German cockroaches have fully adapted to living in man-made structures. They are so strongly associated with humans that there are currently no known populations of German cockroaches living in the wild anywhere in the world.
  • German cockroaches have genetic adaptability and can alter their cuticles to protect themselves from chemical exposure. Over the last century, we've turned these roaches into super roaches by exposing them to a wide range of pesticides.
  • German cockroaches can genetically alter their tastebuds. Some populations of these roaches are born with an aversion to common cockroach baits.
  • German cockroaches are small. An immature nymph of this species can crawl through the holes of an electrical outlet. You're going to have a hard time keeping these roaches out of your home. 
  • German cockroaches can live indoors and outdoors in urban areas and spread from structure to structure. They can also hitch a ride in furniture and other items to spread between structures.

If you have German roaches in your home, it is best to contact ProCare Pest Services for immediate treatment in Lawrenceville. We use a multi-pronged strategy and a mixture of products to ensure no roaches remain in your home. 

In our Lawrenceville service area, we have one species that is head and shoulder above the rest in terms of its ability to make you sick. It even outclasses German cockroaches in doing this. It is the Oriental cockroach. If you see these black roaches crawling around in your home, you should know these facts about them:

  • Oriental cockroaches don't do well inside structures because they need rotting organic matter and damp conditions. Neither are likely to be found in your home.
  • Exposure to rotting organic matter from birth makes Oriental cockroaches a serious health concern. 
  • Use sanitation and moisture control to keep these roaches out of your home. 

One last cockroach species worth mentioning is the American cockroach. It falls in between the other two mentioned above. American cockroaches can do well inside your home, and it is hard to get rid of them. But you will have some success with using sanitation and moisture control to drive them out. You won't have success controlling German cockroaches in this way.

    After a termite swarm invaded my kitchen I called multiple pest control companies and no one could come out to help until next Tuesday.
