Cockroach Control

Cockroaches are relentless, so it’s important to take swift action at the first sign of trouble. At Forest Pest Control, we understand the stress that cockroaches can bring, so we're here to provide expert inspections and cockroach extermination services for homeowners and businesses in Central Florida.

What are the Signs You Might Have Roaches in Your House?

Although it’s generally pretty easy to spot cockroaches, sometimes infestations can go unnoticed for long periods, especially if the infestation is primarily located inside your walls. Here are some warning signs that can tell you if you’re dealing with a cockroach infestation:

  • Unpleasant Odor: A pungent, musty smell that often accompanies cockroach infestations.
  • Droppings: Small, dark fecal pellets left in corners or along baseboards.
  • Shed Skin: Cockroaches shed their exoskeletons, leaving behind translucent shells.
  • Live Cockroaches: This one is self-explanatory. If you see cockroaches in your home, there’s a good chance you have cockroaches.

Common Cockroach Species in Central Florida

Central Florida is home to the four main cockroach species in North America. Each of these has its habits and characteristics, which our seasoned roach exterminators use to customize your treatment options. These are the four most common types of cockroach found in Central Florida:
  • American Cockroaches: These large cockroaches are known for their reddish-brown color and adaptability to various environments.
  • German Cockroaches: Small and light brown, they’re prolific breeders and can quickly infest a space.
  • Oriental Cockroaches: Dark brown to black, these cockroaches prefer damp, cool areas and are often found in basements and crawl spaces.
  • Smokybrown Cockroaches: Their name comes from their dark brown color, and they’re commonly found outdoors, entering structures in search of food and shelter.

When Should You Call a Roach Exterminator?

If you spot a cockroach in your house, you might be tempted to try some DIY treatments with store-bought insecticide. Here’s why you should call a cockroach exterminator instead.

Cockroaches are one of the most resilient insects on the planet. If you don’t eliminate all of them, they will continue breeding and soon you’ll have a much bigger problem than you had initially. And even a single cockroach can be a sign of a larger problem lurking in the shadows.

When you call Forest Pest Control, our roach control technicians will conduct a thorough assessment, leaving nothing overlooked in our quest to understand the full extent of the infestation. Then, we’ll recommend the most effective treatment options, using state-of-the-art techniques to ensure the complete eradication of your infestation.
