Cockroaches on Cardboard

Eliminating cockroaches in an apartment requires a combined effort on the part of management, tenants and pest control professionals. Because roaches often are able to avoid apartment tenant treatments, effective control necessitates a professional.

Measures can be taken to prevent a cockroach population from infesting your home. Dishes should be washed and put away. Food should never be left on counters or tables. Defective plumbing and potential leaks should be corrected, and garbage should be taken out daily. All holes and cracks in ceilings and walls should be repaired. Any signs of a cockroach infestation should be reported to the superintendent or housing authority immediately.

In the event of an infestation, it will most likely be necessary to utilize the services of a professional pest control company. Some professional pest control companies will offer extermination plans, but Orkin delivers customized solutions. Superintendents should communicate all pest control plans thoroughly to tenants, ensuring that appropriate preparatory and safety measures are taken both prior to and following treatment.
