Cockroaches Contaminate Food & Spread Disease

Cockroaches are the most common structural pest in San Diego. Cockroaches are disease vectors which readily transport disease by walking, feeding and discharging bodily waste contaminating clean surfaces and food.

There are four species of cockroach in San Diego; American cockroach, Brown-banded cockroach, German cockroach and the Oriental cockroach. Of these, the German cockroach is by far the most common as well as the toughest to eradicate. The German cockroach produces more eggs and has the most filthy habits of the four cockroach species in California. Cockroaches carry numerous pathogenic organisms on their bodies, potentially spreading these diseases to humans.

How Do Cockroaches Get In?

There are several ways cockroaches gain access to your home or office.

  • Traveling with groceries, particularly in grocery bags and other foods and containers.
  • Brought in on infested equipment such as second-hand refrigerators, microwaves, TVs, and other appliances.
  • Imported into the home from an infested work site.
  • Migrating through wall voids from an infested area. Typically apartments with common walls, pipes and electrical chases.
  • Migrating in or flying in from outdoor breeding sites.
  • Entering through infested drains or sewers.

What Our Customers Are Saying

5 star review

"What a great company!!! Through my years of dealing with different pest control companies, I would have to say this was by far the best experience I've had. It first started with the phone call I made, when I was greeted by a kind young lady that seemed really knowledgeable and answered all questions concerning my roach problem to the best of her knowledge, and told me she would have a licensed inspector call me to further help.

I was contacted immediately by a gentlemen who then set an appointment with me to come visit. When he arrived he was very professional, asked me what my concerns were and then asked me if I wanted to follow him to do the inspection. (which I did, and he was extremely thorough in checking every nook and cranny). Then he went over treatment options and explained what we would need to do to be prepared for the treatment and then told us how we could also help out on a daily basis. The technician arrived on time the following day for our appointment, asked if he could re-inspect for his benefit, then sat down with me and explained what he was going to do and how it would work. We were very happy with how customer service oriented, knowledgeable and professional this company is from the phone call, to the inspection, to the treatment. Thank you License to Kill."

My wife is terrified of spiders but she can now rest in peace knowing that our home is secured and we didn't have to pay an arm and a leg.
