Roach Pest Control and Inspection Services near Milwaukee, WI

Cockroach infestations are one of the most common pest problems—and also one of the most difficult to exterminate since they tend to hide in a number of areas, breed quickly and can even develop resistance to pesticides. Roaches can be extremely toxic because they can spread E. coli and Salmonella bacteria, and prolonged exposure to their feces and dead body parts can have a negative effect on allergies or asthma. 

Here at Safeway Pest Management, we understand how important it is to address any potential pest problems as soon as possible. If you think you have a roach infestation, our team of licensed pest specialists will thoroughly inspect, identify and provide necessary treatment and prevention services over time to ensure your home or building is healthy and pest-free once again. If you have any questions regarding our roach control and inspection process, contact Safeway Pest Management of Milwaukee for more information at 262-679-4422.
 

Roach Inspection

Rather than hiding out in one spot, roaches tend to infest a number of areas. If you think you have a cockroach problem, use a flashlight to inspect for feces and find roach shelters. Common harbor areas include cabinets, kitchen drawers or other enclosed areas in the kitchen. They can also be found in bathrooms and under beds or couches where crumbs may have accumulated.

It’s smart to note the type of roach infestation to understand what you’re dealing with. Smaller roaches that are often caught running across your kitchen when you flip on the light are usually German Roaches. Larger (about 1.5 inches) roaches that mostly live outside and occasionally come inside will likely require a different treatment plan.

Safeway’s licensed pest specialists will determine the source of the infestation, the type of cockroach you’re dealing with and the severity of the problem. Proper inspection is critical in determining the best pest treatment plan and prevention options moving forward. Contact Safeway Pest Management of Milwaukee at 262-679-4422 for more information on our thorough roach inspection process.

Roach Treatment Options

Not only are cockroaches an annoyance, but they are also one of the most difficult pests to treat. Cockroaches breed quickly and have high reproductive potential, and they can even develop resistance to pesticides, so it’s critical to address the problem as soon as possible to avoid further spreading. Treatment depends on species and size of infestation. Common treatment typically requires at least 2 visits, while more serious situations require several additional visits to ensure the roaches are gone for good.

For outside areas, treatment typically includes the spraying method in monthly or quarterly visits. Inside infestations can be treated with glue traps, roach dust, gel bait or tenting. Safeway Pest Management’s licensed pest specialists will complete an inspection to determine the severity of your roach problem and decide on the best treatment plan moving forward.

  • Glue trap

  • Roach dust

Roach Prevention

Safeway Pest Management is experienced in roach prevention services for clients near Milwaukee. Following the treatment process, our licensed pest specialists can assist with cockroach prevention and will work hard to keep your home healthy and pest-free. You can help prevent future issues by understanding how and why roaches infest the areas they do.

Cockroaches tend to enter your home from the outside through cracks and crevices, vents, sewers and drain pipes, and they can even be brought in on grocery bags, boxes, plants and more. Checking items before bringing them into your home and sealing gaps and cracks can help maintain a clean environment. A cockroach can survive almost anywhere that food, water and shelter are available, which is why it is also crucial to store food and water in tight containers to avoid easily attracting roaches in the future.
