The Terminix® Cockroach Solution

Cockroaches are relentless, but so are we. We will kill the cockroaches you see — and the ones you can't. Then we'll keep them out of your home.

How cockroach control works:

  • Step 1

    Initial visit

    During your first visit, a Terminix technician will perform a comprehensive inspection and treatment of your home's interior and exterior. The exterior treatment creates a perimeter to keep pests out.

  • Step 2

    Ongoing service

    With each ongoing visit, we'll treat outside your home, fortifying the perimeter. And, if you request, we'll treat inside your home again.

We'll do whatever it takes, including coming back between treatments at no cost, until pests are gone. If you're not 100% satisfied, we'll give you your money back.2

All about cockroaches

Cockroaches can be found infesting everything from homes to restaurants to ships and planes. They may follow water pipes and electrical lines through walls from one room to another and even from one apartment to another.

Cockroach infestation

Cockroaches are accomplished hitchhikers. In fact, German cockroaches usually first get into buildings by riding in boxes, in furniture and in other items brought into the building. Most other cockroach species invade from the outside or from sewers or drains.

Most cockroaches prefer to rest on wood rather than on metal and other surfaces. That’s why you’ll often find them living in wood cabinets or in cardboard boxes. German cockroach fecal material contains a pheromone that tells other cockroaches that the area is a good place to harbor. Large numbers of cockroaches may congregate in areas where fecal material has accumulated. These areas are called aggregation points.

All dishes and food items should be removed from shelving before treating for cockroaches. Good sanitation helps put stress on a cockroach population by making them more susceptible to treatments and baits.

Managing cockroach infestation

Terminix® professionals begin by inspecting and treating available hiding places in which cockroaches might live. This includes electric motors, electronic equipment, false ceilings, wall voids and accessible cracks and voids.

Vacuuming may be used in some cases to provide immediate reduction in the number of cockroaches. A variety of application techniques and methods may then be used to provide a comprehensive cockroach treatment, including crack and crevice treatments, void treatments and baits.
