Just about any property is vulnerable to cockroaches, no matter how clean. Cockroaches have been around for a very long time and are known for their ability to adapt and survive. They are considered pests and if you see just one, there's a good chance you have more hidden away somewhere.
If you’re seeing cockroaches, it's important to call in an Ehrlich Technician who will work with you to find a solution. Your Technician will find the source of the infestation, eliminate it, and offer prevention methods to stop the pests from returning.

We offer different treatment options dependent upon several factors to control your cockroach problem. Selecting the most effective treatment method to completely eliminate the cockroaches depends on the following:
Ehrlich’s cockroach services include an inspection, insecticide application, and insect monitor placement. Your Technician will physically remove any cockroaches found indoors and place pest monitoring glue traps. Treatment will be made to the exterior where cockroaches are harboring and/or entering, and a non-repellent liquid residual insecticide will be applied to the areas where cockroaches hide or are likely to crawl. Any potential cockroach entry points in your home may be sealed with a silicone sealant, copper mesh, or expandable foam.
Cockroaches have been shown to carry disease-causing microorganisms on their bodies. Microbes found on cockroach bodies include several types of bacteria, worms, fungi, and viruses. While cockroaches have never been linked to the direct transmission of any disease, they can contaminate clean surfaces with these disease-causing microbes. Cockroaches can bring about the following illnesses:
Cockroach control for your commercial property is just as important. In addition to all the health issues listed above, cockroaches in your place of business can ruin your reputation, and they are notoriously considered a sign of an unclean space.
You should seal all potential entry points around pipes, drains, and common walls to deny cockroaches access to your home. Eliminating their food sources, keeping the area behind major appliances clean, and cleaning up food and liquid spills, as well as decluttering and tidying up, will help to prevent cockroaches from sticking around.
Cockroaches are attracted to food, water, and shelter, and they will eat just about anything. Cockroaches are great hitchhikers and often end up in your home by being brought in on something else, like a grocery bag or a cardboard box.
A few of the most common signs of a cockroach infestation are cockroach droppings, their shed skin, smear marks, or their eggs. An unusual odor may also be present from their feces. Seeing a live roach itself is always a dead giveaway that there are probably more.
While DIY options are intriguing, they are not the best option. DIY cockroach control rarely provides a long-term solution. DIY treatments tend to mistakenly target the wrong areas with over the counter products. This will often disperse the cockroach population throughout the property. We do not recommend attempting to control cockroaches on your own, as you may not eliminate the whole infestation.
Cockroaches carry disease-causing microorganisms and can contaminate surfaces, leading to illnesses, viruses, and allergies.
