Corky’s Cockroach Control Service

The Cockroach, a plague upon humankind.

Cockroaches have survived many extinction events, including the end of the dinosaurs. They have remained virtually unchanged since the dawn of time. And, it is believed that these adaptable creatures will still be standing or crawling at the end of the world as we know it.

Is there a positive side to cockroaches? When they show up in your home or place of business, No! Cockroaches are well-known pests. You might even label them infamous. They can spread disease (including E. coli and Salmonella), cause respiratory conditions, like asthma, damage goods and their populations can grow very quickly from a single egg-carrying female to a full-fledged, widespread, stinking infestation.

Cockroaches eat everything people eat plus a lot more. They’re nocturnal (coming out at night to forage), so if you see them in daylight, they’re hiding places have been disturbed — or you’ve got an infestation so huge, there are more roaches than spaces to hide in.

Living with cockroaches can be hazardous to your health. Get help fast! Catching a small infestation quickly can take a minimal of extermination effort, including: cleaning and sanitizing affected areas and calling in pest control professionals to apply best practices for their elimination including state approved products that get rid of roaches.

Corky’s initial Cockroach Control Service provides 2 treatment visits, 2 weeks apart. This ensures that hatching nymphs are also eliminated (egg hatching takes about 14 days). It also includes cleaning and sanitation, provided by a Sanitation Specialist to promote a successful service.

When infestations are left unchallenged, and roaches are crawling everywhere, in every room, and you can smell their stink, traditional methods of control may not produce the hoped for, results. In extreme cases of infestation, pest professionals turn to fumigation combined with chemical applications as the best way to ensure control and elimination of roaches.

Corky’s Pest Control offers both chemical control and fumigation to get rid of cockroaches inside single-family homes, apartments, and businesses.
