Frequently Asked Questions

Effective cockroach control involves diligent sanitation to eliminate excess food, water and harbourage areas. The use of gel baits and dust are the most effective means of control. Glue traps are helpful, but are seen more as monitoring devices than a control tactic. A thorough vacuuming of harbourage areas is also beneficial in neutralizing cockroach populations by destroying cockroach eggs.

Some cockroaches lay eggs aggressively and require persistent treatment to get rid of. That’s where Terminix Canada helps. We’ve helped homeowners get rid of cockroaches for over 90 years, succeeding where many fail with their ineffective, DIY cockroach killers.

All four major Canadian cockroach species are active throughout the year, from January to December.

When cockroaches seek food and water sources, they carry bacteria directly into food-dense areas. This can lead to food poisoning, diarrhoea, dysentery, and other diseases and illnesses like salmonella typhi and poliomyelitis. That’s why contacting a cockroach pest control specialist like Terminix Canada is so important as soon as you find traces of cockroaches living in your space.

Cockroaches are attracted to food inside your home. If food is left on countertops, dirty dishes are in the sink or crumbs are lying on the floor, cockroaches will invade your space. Since they are nocturnal, you might not even notice you have a cockroach infestation until the problem has become serious.

Diligent sanitation is the key to preventing cockroaches from invading your home. Since cockroaches are attracted to food and dirt, thorough and regular cleaning and disinfection helps fight infestations. Retail store baits disguise insecticide as a food source while cockroach traps exist too.

For a more permanent cockroach pest control solution, call Terminix Canada. Our chemical cockroach treatments are safe and proven cockroach killers. Our professional cockroach exterminators will see your cockroach infestation crawl away for good.
