Cockroaches are a common pest problem in San Jose, with the presence of American, German, and Oriental types. They are extremely adept at entering buildings, but can be found both indoors as well as outdoors. Homeowners may start having problems with cockroaches when the roach population has grown into a large infestation. This can cause many problems to homeowners. Hence, it is important that you as a homeowner know about cockroach control in San Jose.

Cockroach Control

How Do Cockroaches Get Into A Home?

Cockroaches enter a building in different ways. These include entering through cracks and crevices in a structure, vents and sewer lines, home delivered furniture, or even sacks of farm produce. Cockroaches are nocturnal, which means that they only come out at night. However, they scatter when they are disturbed, or when a light is switched on.

How Quickly Can They Reproduce?

Cockroaches are known to reproduce quickly, especially when they are in an environment with plenty of food and water sources available. Generally, they form large groups, which can lead to them staining the walls, floors, and spreading their saliva, feces, cast skins, around the house.

How Can Cockroach Infestations Be Treated?

As a leading roach exterminator, we at Planet Orange do not recommend a do-it-yourself approach to cockroaches, as it is often ineffective. Cockroaches are very good at hiding and multiplying quickly. In addition, due to their biology, their eggs are not affected by traditional insecticides.
