Types of Cockroaches in Seattle
Seattle has the same types of cockroaches as other big cities. The main roaches found in Seattle properties include:
- American Cockroach – The largest roach in North America.
- German Cockroach – The most common roach in Seattle.
- Oriental Cockroach – Black, glossy, and almost as big as the American Roach.
- Brown Banded Cockroach – Smaller, destructive, and likes to hide near appliances.
All of these roaches represent potential problems for property owners in Seattle.
Cockroaches: A Health Hazard
Cockroaches are more than a nuisance. The natural oil on roaches is known to cause allergies and irritate asthma. Roaches also carry bacteria, including salmonella, staph, strep, and more.
Cockroaches are also destructive. Not only do they feed on human food – they are happy to feed on glue, including the starches of book bindings. Roaches breed quickly when left untreated and become an even more serious health hazard in minimal time.
Professional Cockroach Treatments and Prevention with Pest Fighter
As specialists in integrated pest management, we work with both businesses and homeowners to prevent and eliminate all types of pests – including roaches.
Roach prevention is a part of our standard recurring service. However, if you already have a roach problem, we may consider utilizing more comprehensive cockroach control.
There are two approaches that we take depending on your property:
For properties that are cleaned and prepped:
- We spray a water-based treatment along the perimeter. The treatment is safe for children and pets, but strong enough to eliminate any roach that walks over it.
- We use an attractant near popular cockroach hiding spots to draw them across the water-based treatment.
For properties that are not able to be cleaned prior to treatment, we use a gel-based solution that acts as a bait for roaches. When the roaches pick up on it, they carry it back to their nests and expire.
