PERMANENT STRAIGHTFORWARD SOLUTIONS BY A FULLY LICENSED PEST CONTROL COMPANY IN TORONTO.
Probably the most common pest infesting food service institutions, houses as well as other establishments are cockroaches. Cockroaches are repulsive and objectionable to the majority of folks just by their own existence. They’re also able to mechanically transmit disease microorganisms like the microorganisms which cause food-poisoning. Cockroaches can trigger allergic reactions and asthma. Cockroaches commonly become established in houses after being launched in food bags, with washing or, in certain instances, wandering in from outside. Once cockroaches become established they’re prolific breeders effective at creating thousands of offspring within a year.

GETTING RID OF COCKROACHES
COCKCROACH CONTROL - HOW IT WORKS
Our licensed cockroach exterminator Toronto services can create and execute a customized strategy that will work for your situation. Cockroach control methodologies practiced by our well trained and experienced technicians include crack and crevice treatments, Ultra Light Volume Mist insecticide applications, insecticide dust, boric acid application, roach baits, and hydramethylnon cockroach gel.
Using solid and gel can help reduce a cockroach population. However a full cockroach treatment is required to completely get rid of a cockroach infestation. Adhesive traps or sticky traps work primarily in monitoring a population and not in reducing a cockroach population. They work but they don’t work fast enough to have a significant impact on a population. Professionals exterminators use these traps primarily for insect activity monitoring and not as an effective way to control a problem. A complete cleaning of hiding places is likewise quite useful in minimizing cockroach populations. Cockroaches would rather dwell where there’s wetness, heat and food. Sterilization is an essential part of avoidance and management, because cockroaches boom where food and wetness are easily accessible.
COCKROACH CONTROL SOLUTIONS
Over the counter solutions can be applied with some degree of effectiveness. However, professionally applied solutions are much more effective. Also, centipedes are natural predators. While many homeowners discover centipedes themselves grotesque, your house centipede is likely the best control agent against cockroaches. If you would like the cockroach problem eliminated once and for all give us a call: 647-496-2211. We provide reliable pest control services for residences and businesses in the Greater Toronto Area.

PROFESSIONAL CRACK AND CREVICE TREATMENT
Cockroaches hide in cracks and crevices, behind appliances, inside appliance motors, in and under kitchen counter tops and cabinets. To exterminate cockroaches we first need to flush them out of their hiding spaces and places. Exterminating them requires the application of a residual insecticide in areas of high activity and in cracks and crevices. Flushing them out is done using an ultra light volume mist.
This mist is generated by a professional piece of pest control control equipment. Every licensed exterminator in our pest control company carries an Actisol unit which instantly combines a low volume of insecticide with a high volume of air.
A wand at the end of the nozzle atomizes the mixture and delivers in the insecticide in very hard to reach places. The insecticide mixture not only flushes insects out but also coats the treated surfaces with a very fine layer of residual. Consequently, if insects are not directly affected by the treatment they will be affected by the mild residual.
We use cutting edge technology to deliver the best possible service to every single one of our customers. Bait and dust can be used in certain situations where we cannot spray. This can be in a food service facility or a restaurant in operation as part of regular pest management program.
COCKROACHES AT HOME
We offer comprehensive cockroach extermination services for residential and multi-residential settings. We deal with residential cockroach by performing full crack and crevice treatments. Our residential cockroach exterminator Toronto treatments are guaranteed and backed by 3 or 6-month warranties.
COCKROACHES AT YOUR BUSINESS
For business customers we offer cockroach extermination services through our pest management programs. In most cases these programs are based on a first set-up and full extermination visit after hours and regular maintenance every week, month or as required by our customers. Even the smallest cockroach problem can lead to serious infestations resulting in catastrophic consequences for small business owners. Cockroach problems that have not been dealt with adequately are a primary reason for many restaurant closures.
AVOIDING A COCKROACH INFESTATION
A successful cockroach plan is dependent upon good sanitation in attempts at removing the water, food and warmth these creatures require for survival. Removing all food sources is imperative. Even the smallest amount of organic matter can be an attractant. Unlike a lot of household pests, cockroaches are common year-round. Aside from removing food sources, removing their hiding spots is also very important. You should remove any cardboard boxes, clutter, unused appliances and items from kitchen cabinets. There are many parasites and natural predators for cockroaches, but few of these have been shown to be extremely efficient in attempts at natural control. Also, none of these predators exist in your kitchen. If you are looking for help in preventing cockroach infestation call The Exterminators for cockroach exterminator Toronto.
TYPES OF COCKROACHES
The Brown-Banded Cockroach is among the smallest in size as far as pest cockroaches are concerned, although the amount of havoc and damage they cause surely defy their smaller measurements! The adult brown-banded cockroach grows up to between 10 and 14.5 millimetres in length. This species is quite easily recognizable compared to the other species of cockroaches mainly due to their size as well as light brown or tan bands that run across the wings of the adults, and bodies of the nymphs – hence the name. The Supella Longipalpa species is a common one in North America and in recent times, has also added itself to the list of pests in Britain and Ireland.
APPEARANCE AND CHARACTERISTICS
The Brown-Banded Cockroach is among the smallest of cockroaches and due to its distinct color, is easily distinguishable from the others. Ranging between 10 and 14.5 millimeters in length, these cockroaches are highly adaptable and don’t even need a subsequent amount of moisture to survive. Therefore, when it comes to habitat, these cockroaches aren’t only restricted to the damp areas around the house, but move into bedrooms and living rooms too. They can even survive in warmer temperatures and actually prefer temperatures higher than 80 Degrees Fahrenheit.
Although they are mostly active after dark, these cockroaches can also be seen foraging and scavenging during the day, thus posing quite a lot of nuisance simply by their presence. An adult of this species has an average lifespan of around 200 odd days and during a lifetime, the female of the species can produce around 14 egg capsules, each of which contain between 10 to 18 eggs. Therefore, when it comes to the brown-banded cockroach, an infestation is always around the corner.
While most species of pest cockroaches have a necessity for moist places with high humidity levels, the Brown-Banded Cockroach is quite adaptable to human living conditions and is found all over the property, irrespective of the presence of moisture. Therefore, these cockroaches tend to move around a lot, thereby increasing the health hazards that they pose to humans. They are therefore found even in bedrooms and living rooms, thus increasing the chances of the spread of diseases and illnesses.
Cockroaches carry a variety of disease-causing bacteria and viruses on their bodies, and the more they move about, the more are the chances of the spread of these diseases. The most common diseases that humans contract through cockroaches are gastroenteritis and diarrhea. Of course, the constant danger of allergies is also present, thanks to the tendency of some people to react adversely to the bodily secretions, fecal matter and shed skin of cockroaches. Asthmatic patients are more susceptible to attacks in the presence of these as well as other cockroaches.
BROWN-BANDED COCKROACH EXTERMINATION
Since they are distributed all over the house or place of business, the extermination is a little tricky when it comes to brown-banded cockroaches. DIY techniques usually end up doing only half the job as the identification of cockroaches and their habits are extremely necessary to set up the right extermination techniques. A professional extermination company is, therefore, a safe bet, since their technicians are well-experienced in identifying and tracking down the hideouts of this species no matter where they have chosen to set up shop. For cockroach control solutions Toronto call The Exterminators for cockroach exterminator Toronto services.
The Oriental Cockroach, also commonly referred to as the Waterbug, is a scarily large species of cockroach, and unfortunately, this species is part of the list that makes up the list of household pests. Measuring between 18 to 27 millimetres in size, Oriental cockroaches prefer moist yet warm places and can often be found near locations that have a considerable amount of moisture like sinks, drains or even damp basements in homes.
One of the main reasons for cockroaches to find dwellings that are closer to human habitat is that humans prefer the same temperatures that cockroaches do, and so is the case with the Oriental cockroach too. The ideal temperature for this species of the cockroach to thrive is between 68 and 84 Degrees Fahrenheit, pretty close to what we humans prefer! In addition to this, there are also a lot of damp places that are found in and around a household, yet another perfect reason for these cockroaches to set up home around us.
APPEARANCE AND CHARACTERISTICS
Oriental cockroaches are dark brown to black in color and have a glossy body that tends to make them look even bigger than they already are! The adult male of this species measures between 18 and 29 millimeters, while the female cockroaches are even bigger, measuring between 20 and 27 millimeters. The females also have wider bodies than their male counterparts.
The female oriental cockroach has two short wings right below her head, while the male of the species has longer wings that cover about two-thirds of its abdomen. A common misconception is that Oriental Cockroaches have the ability to fly, however, this is not true. Neither male or female can fly.
Oriental cockroaches prefer places that have temperatures ranging between 68 and 84 Degrees Fahrenheit, and require the are to have higher levels of humidity too. Indoors, damp basements, moist porches, washing machines, sewer pipes, drains and other damp areas are their favorite haunts, while outdoors, they can be found under mulch or just about any other warm and moist location.
Since Oriental cockroaches primarily survive on decaying matter and the filth that is found in places like sewer pipes and the likes, they pose quite a lot of danger on the health front. Capable of carrying various bacteria and viruses on their bodies, any surface or food item that these cockroaches come in contact with is eventually left behind with a wide range of disease-causing organisms. Their very presence can also cause allergies.
ORIENTAL COCKROACH EXTERMINATION
Due to their size and ability to stay below the radar in places that are usually hidden from view, as well as their tendency to go foraging only after dark, infestations of Oriental cockroaches are often found only when they have reached large numbers. Therefore, it is always a good idea to hire the services of an extermination company, since these cockroaches are also difficult to get rid of. For oriental cockroach problems call The Exterminators for cockroach exterminator Toronto.
They have been around for more than 300 million years – way before the first humans roamed the planet – and in all probability, will be here long after the human race has vanished. That is how hardy and adaptable these nasty insects and even in the civilized world, we can’t help but have these pests as neighbors. And when it comes to cockroaches, the German Cockroach (Latin name Blatella Germanica) is widely recognized as one of the most commonly found pest cockroaches in the world today.
Whether it is a restaurant, a home, a business, a school, a hospital, an apartment or just about any other place where a cockroach has enough reasons to thrive, there is every possibility of finding cockroaches, and in all probability, German cockroaches would be a part of that infestation. The good news is that out of the more than 3500 species of cockroaches that are found all over the planet, there are only a handful that prove to be pests on the human habitat front. Well, this may sound like a blessing in a way, but the handful that are on the list of pests are more than enough to create havoc too, and the German cockroach certainly tops the list here.
APPEARANCE AND CHARACTERISTICS
The German cockroaches are light brown, tan or blackish in colour and have two horizontal black-coloured stripes starting from behind their head all the way down to the base of their wings. In spite of the presence of wings, however, German cockroaches do not fly. However, they might choose to glide down to safety or into hiding in case they are surprised. When frightened, or even excited, they also emit a rather unpleasant odour. An adult cockroach of this species measures between 11 and 16 millimetres.
German cockroaches are often mistaken for Asian cockroaches due to the similarities between them at first glance. Asian cockroaches, however, unlike their German counterparts, are attracted to light and can also fly quite well. German cockroaches are mostly nocturnal and choose to scavenge during the night, or in places that are dark. They cannot survive really low temperatures, and therefore, humans – who love to keep themselves warm too – are their natural cohabitants, and the fact that humans do not want them as neighbours doesn’t really bother them either!
GERMAN COCKROACH DIET
When it comes to food, the German cockroach, like most other pest cockroaches, would eat just about anything. Highly omnivorous, this species of cockroach prefers meats, sugars and fatty foods. In case of scarcity with these items, these cockroaches can even survive on other items such as toothpaste, soap or even glue. In fact, when left with no other option, German cockroaches even turn into cannibals, chewing on each other’s wings and legs!
GERMAN COCKROACH EXTERMINATION
Since the German cockroach is highly capable of spreading serious diseases and illnesses such as Dysentery, Food Poisoning and Diarrhea as well as triggering troublesome allergies, it is highly recommended that they are eliminated from human habitat, whether it is a home or an office. Moreover, since a thorough inspection is required to pin down and exterminate all the hidden cockroaches present on a property to eliminate the threat, it is always a good idea to hire the services of a professional cockroach control Toronto company.
After mating, and under ordinary conditions, they may create, normally, 4 to 6 egg instances throughout the course of the own lives, with every egg instance, or ootheca, comprising roughly 30 to 40 eggs. Depending upon the requirements, the typical time for growth, from egg to adult can vary between 54 to 215 days, with a mean of about 100 days. German cockroach eggs are brownish in colour with spans of 6 — 9mm, Even though the length might be marginally smaller in some circumstances, too. What is intriguing is that the oothecae isn’t stored in a secure hiding place.
Female German cockroaches will actually take their cockroach eggs with Them until they are ready to hatch. This usually means that you may squash a roach that’s carrying out their eggs together, which will make it somewhat easier to kill all of them at once. Cockroaches will create approximately five oothecae in their lifetime and consequently, they can give birth to 200-300 cockroaches. Cockroach eggs can be resistant to may insecticides and practically all insecticides sold over the counter in Ontario. For effective treatment, you need to hire a cockroach control Toronto company to deal with the issue. Call us for effective cockroach exterminator Toronto services.

Problems Caused by Cockroaches
PLEASE CONSULT OUR EXTERMINATOR TO DETERMINE WHICH TREATMENT IS BEST FOR YOUR SPACE AND SITUATION.
Aside from the fact that cockroaches are an unwelcome sight, keep in mind that they can also prove hazardous to your health. The more cockroaches you have living in your home or business, the greater the health hazard.
Cockroaches are often drawn to human environments because they thrive on human food and waste. However, their mere presence can contaminate the food you eat. When a cockroach stops to eat, they regurgitate and defecate on the food they are consuming.
Just the thought might sound disgusting and give you the heebie-jeebies. However, cockroach feces and regurgitation can spread parasites and bacteria to humans. Cockroaches often carry a bacterium known as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which can cause illnesses in humans. Also, cockroaches can spread Salmonella, which can lead to illnesses such as food poisoning and typhoid.
Some people may even experience allergic reactions when in proximity to cockroaches. In fact, 20 to 60 percent of people within urban environments suffer symptoms related to an allergic reaction when they live or work in areas infested with cockroaches. Symptoms of an allergic reaction can include redness of the skin, itching, and respiratory distress.
Cockroaches can also create an unpleasant odor. The odor often has a distinct musky smell to it. The more roaches there are, the stronger the smell. If you notice a musky scent in the air followed by other signs of cockroaches, it is likely that you have a big problem on your hands.
As if the smell and the potential risk of illness is not enough, cockroaches are omnivores. That means they will eat absolutely anything, which can sometimes include you. Very young individuals and the elderly are particularly at risk because they are either immobile or otherwise unable to brush them off or get away. Therefore, you have to worry about cockroach bites.
Fortunately, the nightmare described above does not have to be a reality for you. We can quickly and effectively treat a cockroach infestation in your home or business. Our licensed and professional technicians will come and determine the best approach possible to make sure your home and business are pest-free and stays that way.
What Attracts Cockroaches
There are many reasons why a cockroach might be attracted to your home or business. Most often cockroaches find that they have access to a decent source of food and water. Just the sight of a cockroach scurrying around in sight can make you feel uncomfortable. You might question what exactly it is that attracted them to your home or business in the first place.
There are so many questions to that question that you might find it easier to ask what doesn’t attract them, instead. Cockroaches need food, water, and shelter to survive. Humans can provide all three, so it is best to make sure cockroaches cannot access any of them. You may often find cockroaches in a kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, or break room. Why is that exactly?
The simplest answer is that the rooms mentioned provide the most moisture. There are plenty of dark, damp places for cockroaches to hide, which is an ideal environment. The goal is to make your home or business less attractive for cockroaches. That means fixing any leaks, wiping up any excess moisture, and keeping everything clean and free of food debris, too.
