Cockroach Extermination in Portland
Proudly Serving Beaverton, Lake Oswego, Vancouver & All Surrounding Areas
Cockroaches can cause a variety of problems for you and your family. For many people, cockroaches are repulsive and a source of anxiety. They can spread bacteria throughout your home and are often difficult to get rid of. At Halt Pest Control, our licensed residential pest control technicians strive to get to the root of the problem, offer personalized pest control, and will take the time to educate you about long-term solutions.
The most common species of cockroach that you will come across in Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington is the German cockroach (blantella germanica). These cockroaches are under an inch long and have two distinct stripes behind their heads. What makes these roaches such a nuisance is that they can reproduce at alarming rates, quickly leading to infestations. In addition, they can spread disease and bacteria through their fecal matter.
If you have a cockroach infestation in your home or business, please give us a call or contact us online.
How Did I Get a Cockroach Infestation?
Cockroaches are extremely good at getting inside of tight spaces, such as through cracks and joints in your home. This includes windows, walls, doors, and vents. Cockroaches can even get into your home through sewer pipes and drains. While keeping your home clean and free of food debris can help deter roaches, it is not always successful. Our team at Halt Pest Control has extensive knowledge in this area and we understand how cockroaches make their home in yours.
Common signs that you have a cockroach infestation include:
- Small droppings that look like coffee grounds or larger cylindrical droppings
- Musty or oily odors
- Oval egg cases in hidden areas of your home, such as behind and under furniture
- Dead cockroaches throughout your home
