HOW to GET RID of GERMAN COCKROACH
Cockroaches are one of the most common pests. They have an incredible ability to adapt to almost any environment. However they prefer to settle in moist and warm areas, commonly hiding in cracks and crevices. Cockroaches are mostly active during the night. Out of the 5 most commonly known species of cockroaches in the United States including German, American, Oriental, Brown-Branded, and Smokey Brown roaches, the German cockroach is the most common critter to infest insides of the home.
German cockroaches are pale to medium brown with two dark stripes on the surface of the prothorax and they are 1/2-5/8′ long. They can be brought into the home when they are just eggs through luggage if you went on a vacation and carried on vegetables, beverage cartons, grocery bags, and food carts. German cockroaches can consume anything. They are nocturnal and live close to their food source in moist areas. They cannot survive outdoors. German cockroaches can be found in kitchens and bathrooms, etc.
Cockroaches like to be in places that are warm and moist. They can be found in kitchens, bathrooms, basements, crawl spaces, bathtubs, clothes hampers, drains, pipe chases, sewers, steam tunnels, dumps, mulch beds, ceilings, walls, behind pictures, in lights, appliance motors, furniture, firewood, around doors, windows, ventilation ports, under eves, cracks and crevices, weep holes, chimney area, gutters, and attics.
For indoor treatment, this treatment is most of the time treated against German cockroaches because they live in your home. We recommend that you use gels ( MAXFORCE FC MAGNUM ROACH BAIT, ADVION ROACH BAIT GEL ), baits (ADVION ROACH BAIT STATIONS, MAXFORCE ROACH BAIT STATIONS ), and aerosol (565 Plus Xlo, GENTROL AEROSOL (IGR)). However you can also use liquid sprays (ARCHER IGR, LambdaStar 9.7% CS, FenvaStar EcoCap). You will apply the gel on the corners of the kitchen, in the cracks of appliances (refrigerators, microwaves, stove fans, etc.), under counters, cabinets, and sinks, and other small openings where cockroaches can enter. Place the bait station in places where they can hide. Place the stations adjacent to walls and corners, under appliances. You can place the granular insect bait inside the bait tray and place them where cockroaches are commonly seen. You can even hang them onto walls if you need to. Do not place a bait in places where it has been sprayed with a pesticide and do not spray on them. Do not place them where children and pets can reach. Before applying gels and baits, clean the surrounding areas first to get better results. Using aerosol or liquid spray, apply around door and window frames and walls, behind furniture, etc.
