Cockroach Treatment & Control
Cockroach Control and Treatment Options with No Bugs Pest Control
German cockroaches are common indoor insects that are often found in kitchens, dining rooms, and bathrooms, both in homes and commercial buildings. These cockroaches differ in size, habits, and environmental preferences. Santa Clarita residents may often see American, Russian, or German cockroaches, but the German variety is the most problematic for indoor infestation and most likely to require professional pest control.
To treat them properly and prevent infestation, the No Bugs Termite and Pest Control team will inspect your property before treatment. This helps us identify the problem, confirm the type of cockroach we are treating, and prevent unnecessary treatment. If you believe you have a German Cockroach infestation, or you have spotted even one in your home, it pays to contact our team. Don’t wait until they have taken over and are harder to treat.

Our team is happy to help you combat cockroach issues in your home, but there are preventative measures to take that can help mitigate the issue. Preventive measure with regard to cockroaches includes regular cleaning and sanitation.
You can mitigate the chances of an infestation by:
- Sweeping, vacuuming, mopping, and wiping down floors or countertops to remove crumbs and traces of food will help deter cockroaches.
- Cleaning shelves regularly and checking for points of entry can help prevent cockroaches from getting in from outside and making pantries their home.
- Checking groceries and deliveries thoroughly can help eliminate stow-away cockroaches.
- Check kitchens, bathrooms, and dining rooms for hiding spaces such as cracks, crevices, voids under cabinets, or anywhere else cockroaches can easily access food while hiding when needed.
How to Identify German Cockroaches
German cockroaches are smaller than their American or Russian counterparts. They are typically ½ to 5/8 inch long, with an oval-shaped body, 6 legs, and antennae. Their coloring is tan or light brown with two distinct dark brown stripes on their backs.
German cockroaches prefer to live in warm, humid climates and are most often found indoors where they are close to food and water sources. These hearty bugs will eat almost anything and will carry disease, bacteria, parasites, and allergens on their spiny, hairy legs. Their excrement and decaying bodies can wreak havoc on family members with allergies and are specifically problematic for those who have asthma.
