How fast can Terminix get rid of cockroaches?

How fast Terminix can get rid of cockroaches depends on the extent of your infestation and the type of roaches in your home. Usually, we can resolve a moderate cockroach infestation within a couple of weeks. With very limited infestations, the process may only take a day or two.

When it comes to cockroach treatment, patience and persistence is key. If you opt for a quick DIY fix, these over-the-counter methods are rarely effective and roaches usually come back soon after.

With Terminix, you can rest easy knowing that you have professionals with a deep understanding of cockroach behaviors, hiding places and habits – as well as effective treatment methods to help rid your home of these pests in an efficient manner.

How often will I need roach control treatment?

Cockroaches are persistent creatures capable of surviving under harsh circumstances. Even if the initial treatment is successful, there is always a chance that roaches can return. Cockroaches often come over from neighboring properties – especially in apartment complexes, duplexes, or condos that share a common wall. Because pipes often provide open passage ways from one room or apartment to another, they often hide in plumbing and travel between properties.

A preventive approach is often your best bet to making sure roaches don't infest your home. To make sure these pests don't come back, you need regular inspections and treatments. Terminix recommends setting up either an annual or quarterly inspection schedule. If roaches return between inspections, we will offer treatment free of charge.
