Cockroach Control

Dave’s Pest Control has been exterminating cockroaches for almost four decades and can eradicate your roach infestation. Cockroaches can be especially hard to exterminate in Florida because Florida is warm and lacks the freezing cold temperatures that hinder their infestations naturally.

Aside from being generally unpleasant, cockroach infestations are health hazards and destructive to homes and businesses alike. They can contaminate stored food and can do extensive damage to walls, wallpaper, insulation, drywall, and other parts of the home. While they’re terrible within homes, they are even worse for businesses. Aside from damaging a business’ reputation and scaring away customers who will leave negative reviews if they see them, roaches spread disease. The fact that roaches crawl all over surfaces and find their way within drawers only makes the matter even worse. Roaches are also a health hazard since their feces can cause serious allergic reactions in some people.

What Are Cockroaches?

You may have seen cockroaches on television or maybe even in person, but have you ever wondered what they really are? Cockroaches are species made up of around 30,000 different variations. Surprisingly, only a handful of variations are problematic to humans. A vast majority of the types of cockroaches have little to no direct impact on humans. But the cockroaches that do affect humans are certainly quite the nuisance. They are astonishingly difficult to get rid of — after all, they have been around for hundreds of millions of years. The most common types of roaches people come across in their homes in order are: 

  1. The American Cockroach
  2. The German Cockroach
  3. The Oriental Cockroach
  4. The Brown-Banded Cockroach

Signs You Need Cockroach Control Services

Cockroaches are crafty pests and are generally skilled at going unnoticed. Unfortunately, by the time you do see them, it typically means their numbers are significant. Some common signs that you should contact an exterminator for cockroach control include but aren’t limited to:

Spotting Droppings

Whether it’s cockroaches, termites, or mice, one of the tell-tale signs that it’s time for pest control is finding droppings. Cockroaches may do a good job of staying out of sight, but they don’t necessarily go out of their way to hide their droppings. One of the best indicators that you have a cockroach problem is finding their droppings. The size of the droppings you’ll find will depend on the size of the roach that left them. They can be as small as grains of salt and pepper or they can be as large as coffee grounds and have a pellet-like appearance.



The further along the cockroach infestation gets, the more of an odor it will produce. As time goes on, roaches will continue to urinate, deposit droppings, and spread filth in general. If you smell a musty and overall unpleasant odor, it may be a sign of cockroaches in your home. Feel free to contact us at Dave’s Pest Control if you are unsure, we are happy to help.

Roaches don’t lay eggs one at a time. Instead, they deposit them in what’s called an ootheca. An ootheca is, in essence, an egg sack. The number of eggs in the ootheca depends on the species of cockroach, but some may contain as many as 50 eggs. You’ll have to search in difficult-to-access areas, but if you find an ootheca (hatched or unhatched), it’s time to call pest control professionals for cockroach control services.
