HOW to GET RID of ORIENTAL COCKROACH
Cockroaches are one of the most common pests. They have an incredible ability to adapt to almost any environment. They prefer moist and warm places and cracks and crevices. Cockroaches will be active mostly at night. There are 5 most common cockroaches in United States: German, American, Oriental, Brown-Branded, and Smokey Brown Cockroach.
The female Oriental Cockroaches are 1- 1 1/4′ long and have wings but cannot fly and the male is 1′ long with wings that cover 3/4 of abdomen. The adult oriental cockroaches are dark brown to black. They will release a foul odor. They will be more frequent during the late spring or early summer. Oriental cockroaches can be found in dumps, crawl spaces, mulch beds, sewers, drains, damp basements.
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.
ORIENTAL COCKROACH Control Methods
Since most of the cockroach species will live outside, you should treat the outside of your home first, so it will prohibit cockroaches to come into your home. You can use liquid spray (ARCHER IGR, LambdaStar 9.7% CS, FenvaStar EcoCap ) using a hand sprayer , granules (BIFEN GRANULES, TALSTAR EZ GRANULAR ) using a hand spreader (HANDLE SPREADER). Using the amount instructed, apply the liquid spray or granule on areas that damp, bushes, and areas that are moist. After using granule, remember to irrigate your lawn to activate the granules. You should also apply a band around your home making a barrier to prevent future infestations. Using the liquid spray, spray under siding, cracks and crevices on the structure, around door and window frames, and around utility pipes. For indoor treatment, this treatment is most of the time treated against German cockroaches because they live in your home, however it does not mean the other species cannot come into 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), WHIT ORTHENE AEROSOL, ALPINE AEROSOL). 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.
