Cockroach Control and Prevention

There are about 60 species of cockroaches in the United States. There are five species of cockroaches that are commonly found in Michigan homes and businesses.  Preventing an infestation is much easier than controlling one. Whether you’re looking preventative pest control or if you have an active cockroach issue you need help with, contact us today. With over 20 years of experience, Regal Pest Control’s technicians are Michigan’s pest control professionals in protecting your home or business.

Preventing and Controlling Cockroach Infestations

Cockroaches, like all other pests, need food, shelter and water to survive and flourish. Sanitation is key in preventing and controlling cockroach infestations. The following steps should be taken, both in prevention and in control: 

Plumbing issues

Make sure that plumbing is insulated in kitchen and bathroom areas to prevent condensation on pipes. Moisture is a key component in any pest infestation.


General sanitation is key. Remove garbage and debris inside and outside, especially around the home's perimeter. Make sure that you vacuum regularly, using the hose and crevice attachment if possible.

Food sources

Cockroaches are scavengers and are true omnivores. They will even eat other roaches if necessary. Any organic material is a potential food source. They prefer animal proteins (meat, cheese, grease), sweets and starches.
