Once you discovered that you have cockroaches in your apartment, the first thing you would want to do is to get rid of them by completely exterminating them. However, as tempting and easy as that sounds, actually exterminating them might be more difficult than actually thought. Most people think that the cockroaches that are seen on the kitchen counter or on the floor are the actual number of cockroaches that are inside. Unfortunately, that is not true.
These cockroaches are outliers from a bigger cockroach nest that may be hidden behind a wall. Once the nest becomes over populated, some cockroaches venture outside at odd times. Cockroaches are nocturnal insects with an incredible appetite for grease and peculiar foods. This is why you see a lot of cockroaches in the kitchen and bathroom. If you have cockroaches right this moment, it is time to hire the technicians from The Exterminators Inc. immediately!
Once people spot them in the kitchen or bathroom, their first reaction might be to grab the nearest cockroach spray to spray them. It will work, but just on a temporarily basis. This is because commercial products do not have enough potent active ingredients. Once you spray cockroach, another one will appear. This will go on for quite some time till the spray needs replacement. Apart from that, cockroaches will build a resistance to the spray after some while. This renders the spray useless.
To have the cockroaches exterminated so that they are completely gone, you will need to call in professional intervention. Professionals are licensed and certified individuals that have been in the industry for years such as the cockroach technicians from The Exterminators Inc. The reason why professional intervention needs to be called is because professional intervention seeks out the very source where cockroaches spread from. Technicians work with a target-based approach and with a strategy in mind.
Formulations utilized by technicians are professional-grade substances that are only permitted to be used by licensed and certified individuals. The way that formulations work is through a trickle-down effect placed at specific locations. Technicians have knowledge about the nesting and dietary habits of several species of cockroach as each cockroach species have different habits.

- Clean out the cabinets from food and leftovers
- Make sure to take the trash out regularly and put it in the bin immediately
- Make sure that food is not left in the sink overnight
