A professional inspection is the first step in eliminating cockroaches. An exterminator will asses the extent of the problem, offer a comprehensive plan for extermination and provide a written quote.

Exterminators use a variety of methods to get rid of cockroaches, including pesticide foggers, gel baits and traps. The most effective method is usually a combination of two or three. You can help by keeping your home as clean and sanitary as possible. Cockroaches won’t be attracted to your home if you remove sources of food and water. Proper sanitation also cuts down on the amount of pesticide required.

Even with professional extermination and proper sanitation, don’t expect the cockroaches to disappear overnight. The amount of time it takes to get rid of them depends on the type of cockroach, the severity of the infestation and the control methods used, but the process often spans several months, with follow-up inspections required for a couple years.

Cockroach Control
Cockroaches are found everywhere, the most common of all household pests. The most common types found in the US are Oriental, American and German roach. It is necessary to know the kind of roaches you are dealing with before deciding to destroy them. Other prevention methods include daily cleaning, the appropriate food storage, in order to stop infestation.
Roaches get into homes seeking shelter, water and food. Then they multiply rapidly, posing considerable risk to health and comfort. Cockroaches carry bacteria resulting diarrhea, food poisoning, skin rashes and allergies. AM/PM Exterminators develop a suitable plan before going about killing cockroaches at home.


call a local pest exterminator for a more permanent solution to roach extermination. Not only can they help you identify key areas where roaches are thriving, but they can develop strategies that fix your home and stop attracting roaches to it.

Roaches are not only annoying and unsightly; they can also pose some health risks. Some roaches carry diseases that can be transferred to whatever they come into contact with. Keep your family and pets safe by using solid roach extermination methods that not only work now, but long into the future.

The art for commercial cockroach extermination services in resturants, hotels and apartments

  1. 1. The German cockroach is one of the most common roaches found in apartment houses, restaurants, and hotels. German cockroaches, are "brought in", usually on man's belongings, luggage, boxes or packages. All it takes is bringing in one egg capsule and a month later an infestation occurs. In commercial buildings, like apartments, hotels and restaurants, a slightly more aggressive approach is often used. German cockroaches are a pest control challenge because they’re the most prolific breeders among all cockroaches. They hide in your bathrooms and kitchen to be as close as possible to food and moisture sources.Successfully killing these cockroaches requires persistence and experience. Off-the-shelf products are often not enough. Contact the professionals Commercial cockroach extermination Inspection When inspecting for German cockroaches, thoroughness is very important. The cockroach's excrement looks like black pepper. Cockroach control in commercial buildings is generally more difficult because its hard to controlwhat happens in every part of the building. There may be areas of the building that are not cleaned and treated, for whatever reason, and these can serve as continual sources of cockroaches that re-infest the building. Therefore it may be necessary to treat areas that are accessible with residual insecticides and then aggressively use professional baits to disrupt the populations in the parts of the building that are not accessible. Use the check list guide for a Cockroach control program Roaches do not form true colonies the way termites and ants do and often live in groups. The roaches prefer warm and damp areas in out of the way protected places such as inside walls called harborages. Roach activity is usually highest at night. In fact, any activity in the open, during the day typically indicates very high populations with individuals actually pushed out of harborages becauseof overcrowding. Therefore, cockroaches activity during the dayusually means that theinfestation is fairly large. Cockroaches maybecomepests in homes, schools, restaurants, hospitals, warehouses, offices, and virtually in any structure that has food preparation or storage areas. Contaminating food and eating utensils, occasionally damage fabric and paper products, leave stains on surfaces, and produce unpleasant odors when present in high enough numbers. To be effective, traps must be placed where cockroaches are likely to encounter them when foraging. The best places are at the junctions of floors and walls and close to sites where cockroaches are suspected. Good potential monitoring sites can be determined by accumulations of the evidence that cockroaches leave behind. Common signs to watch for are fecal matter (e.g., dark spots or smears), cast skins, egg cases, and live or dead cockroaches. Place traps in all corners of the room to give an idea where roaches are entering. In the kitchen put traps against walls behind the stove and the refrigerator and in cabinets. It is often a good idea to number the traps to keep records for each trap separately. Check the traps daily for several days until it is apparent which locations capture the greatest number of roaches. This will usually occur within the first 24 hours of placing a trap. Discard sticky traps by placing them in a sealed plastic bag in the trash. Keep records of roaches trapped in different locations before and after initiating a management program to evaluate its success. Exclusion and Removal of Roach Hiding Places in commercial kitchens and apartments During the day cockroaches hide around water heaters, in cupboard cracks, in or behind stoves, inside crawl spaces, deep within outdoor vegetation, and many other dark locations. Limiting hiding areas or avenues of access to living areas is an essential part of an effective management strategy. False-bottom cupboards,
  2. 2. hollow walls, and similar areas are common cockroach refuges. Prevent access to the inside of buildings through cracks, conduits, under doors, or through other structuralflaws. If it is not practical to remedy these problem areas, treat them with boric acid powder insecticides formulated for cockroach control. Measures taken after inspections shows roaches are migrating into a building from outdoors or other areas of the building: • Seal cracks and other openings to the outside. • Use weather stripping on doors and windows. • Look for other methods of entry, such as from items being brought into the building, especially appliances, furniture, and items that were recently in storage. • Inspect food deliveries before putting them in kitchens. • Look for egg cases glued to undersides of furniture, in refrigerator and other appliance motors, boxes, and other items. Remove and destroy any that are found. • Locate and seal cracks inside the treatment area where cockroaches can hide. • Trim shrubbery around buildings to increase light and air circulation, especially near vents, and eliminate ivy or other dense ground covers near the house, as these may harbor cockroaches. • From around the outside of buildings remove trash and stored items such as stacks of lumber or firewood that provide hiding places for cockroaches. • Consider keeping a layer of gravel about 6 to 12 inches wide around the perimeter of buildings. A flashlight would be a handy tool to check the following places. Cracks and Crevices Behind and under refrigerators Behind and under stoves Behind and under microwavesa and toasters Under tops of tables Behind and under sinks Cabinets-corners and cracks and crevices Motors of refrigerators and soft drink dispensing machines Switchboxes and electical outlets Under and behind cafeteria counters and soda fountains Cash registers Telephones Vegetable bins Recycling bins Meat counters and check-out stands Meat cutting blocks Ampm exterminators cockroach commercial control Program When Cockroach control infestation program has been started, Ampm exterminators evaluates the effectiveness of the methods that are being used with regular monitoring.
