In Knoxville a bug that that everyone never wants to find inside their home: a cockroach. Cockroaches are very hard to capture and multiple very fast, so it never takes long for roaches to totally infest a building if they’re not gotten rid of by roach control at the onset.

The Kind of Roaches You Can Find In Your Knoxville Home

Four different types of roaches infest homes. The most common kind of cockroach you might come across is the American roach, also known as the sewer roach, there are also Brown Banded roaches, German roaches, and Oriental roaches. The last three are less typical, but they are still good to watch out for.

What These Roaches Look Like and Where You Can Find Them

Each type of roaches have different attributes they can be distinguished by. The American and Oriental roaches are alike, they are easier to spot because they are approximately 1 inch long with coloring that ranges from brown to a dark brown-black. These roaches like to live in dark and wet places; closets with a water heater, washing machines, or under the sink. The Brown banded and German roaches are approximately 1/8th of an inch. These roaches have a light brownish or tan color. These tinier roaches prefer to be in warm and dry spots; underneath the dryer, around your water heater. Whatever kind of cockroach you find, if a cockroach determines it can thrive in a spot, it will invade in no time if not prevented against or eliminated right away. The smartest way way to stop these bugs would be to call a roach control technician, in order to be sure the problem will really be taken care of.

How Your Knoxville Roach Control Company Treats For Roaches

The best way to eliminate cockroaches is to get them treated by a pest control company. The more effective roach control treatment plan has three parts. This would be an in-wall treatment inside of the building, followed by a spray treatment all around the foundation of the house, and finally the problem is treated at it’s source using granules. This process kills whatever roaches may be inside your walls, set up a boundary around your home, and eliminate the rest of the roaches at their source.
