Get Rid Of Cockroaches - Treating For German Cockroaches
German cockroaches are some of the most persistent cockroaches in the United States. As with any pest, they can become on enormous problem in your home if not taken care of. Don't let these cockroaches multiply. Each egg capsule contains from 20 to 40 small baby cockroaches when hatched and can infest your home quickly. They are mostly found indoors but can be found outdoors. This is usually due to a very heavy infestation indoors. They like tight places and this is usually why you find them mostly in cracks and crevices and mostly at night. But in a home with a heavy infestation you will find them everywhere, day and night.
The German cockroach is about 1/2 to 5/8 inch long and loves your home. Rid yourself of these as soon as possible or you will be sorry.
The old way of treating for German cockroaches is by cleaning out your cabinets and spraying around your baseboards. Some of the old timers still do this. Let me tell you, I've been treating for German cockroaches for over 22 years and all this does is rid your home of these pests for a short period of time. They will move back into the walls and stay away from the sprays until the smell is gone and then they will return. Sure, you are going to kill a few. But they will return.
The best way is to use baits. I've cleaned many homes of German cockroaches and it works. You can call a professional but be very careful. Not all companies are honest. If you do it yourself, here is what you can do. Purchase one of these two baits. Combat Roach Killing Gel . Or what the professionals use; Maxforce FC Magnum Roach Bait
Apply this gel to all cracks and crevices in your home. All kitchen cabinets (you don't have to empty your cabinets). Just apply it in tiny dots about the size of a bb and no larger than a pea. Apply it to all corners of your cabinets and anywhere else you see cockroaches.
Even Boric Acid works well. If you have a heavy infestation, open up all of your electrical switch plate covers and apply it in these.
