There are two main types of cockroaches that we see in Salt Lake City and the surrounding area. The type of cockroach treatment depends on which species of you are having troubles with. These types are the German cockroach and the Oriental cockroach. The German cockroach is brown and about a half of an inch in length with two black stripes on it’s head. They are mostly seen in the kitchen and bathroom areas.
The oriental cockroach is a black and a bigger roach. The adults get to be a bit larger than an inch in length. They typically are in the basement and lower levels of homes and businesses. We normally see them in the Salt Lake avenues, Marmalade district and into the downtown area. They require quarterly cockroach control maintenance to keep them out of your house, since they live outside.
German Cockroach Treatment:
We do three cockroach control treatments, three weeks apart for German cockroaches. Each treatment is a thorough service that requires you to remove all the items from the kitchen and bathroom cupboards. After the first treatment you will need to leave the house for two hours and upon your return open the windows for a half an hour. After our third treatment, we have a guarantee for 2 months.

We have two options for oriental cockroach treatment:

#2. The other cockroach control option is a yearly maintenance program, which is recommended if you do not ever want to see a roach crawling in your house again.
We come and treat your full house and then we treat again in a month, making sure there is enough insecticide to kill any babies that may hatch. This breaks the life cycle of the cockroaches. After that, we come quarterly to spray the exterior to keep any roaches from the outside getting in. We will also spray the interior if you happen to see any inside. If we are maintaining your house we will come back anytime you see a roach for free!
