Tips to Prevent a Roach Infestation
The best way to beat a cockroach infestation is to prevent it from happening in the first place.
Through our 35+ years of dealing with roaches, we've put together a list of tips to keep your home roach free:
- Keep your home clean. Roaches are drawn to dirty, cluttered spaces.
- Focus on keeping your kitchen clean. Make sure you don't leave food out overnight, clean your dishes regularly, and make sure you clean up grease, oil, and food spills right away no matter where they are. It's also vital to check behind your appliances to make sure nothing is building up back there.
- Store your food in sealed containers. If you're especially worried about a roach infestation, investing in good tupperware is a great way to keep them from squeezing their way inside food boxes and bags.
- Regularly empty your trash. Letting garbage sit and fester for too long is an easy way to draw pests into your home, so taking out the trash is an easy way to protect your home.
- Seal entry points into your home and kitchen. Making sure your windows and doors don't have noticeable cracks in the frames when closed can help prevent pests from slipping inside your home, as well as helping to make sure your home is more energy-efficient.
Whether you have seen a single cockroach skittering around your water pipe or multiple cockroaches around your kitchen sink, our team is here to help. We fully stand behind our services and use the most advanced treatments on the market to ensure a truly pest-free space.

American Roaches vs. German Roaches
Knowing what type of cockroach you're dealing with is a huge part of effectively treating an infestation. When you call us in to take care of a roach problem, the first step we take is figuring out whether you have German roaches or American roaches in your home.
How to tell the difference between German cockroaches and American cockroaches:
- Size: American cockroaches tend to be much bigger than German cockroaches, measuring about 1 ½ - 2 inches in length compared to about half an inch long.
- Location: German cockroaches are more prolific in Brooklyn and the surrounding areas, making it more likely that your infestation is being caused by German cockroaches.
- Roach Markings: American cockroaches tend to be rusty-brown in color, where German cockroaches have dark brown markings down their back with tan or yellow on the sides.
Once we know the specific insect we're dealing with, we can create a personalized treatment plan based on your unique circumstance.
