Outdoor Cockroaches/Sewer and Oriental Cockroaches

Outdoor Cockroaches
When waking up in the morning, the last thing you want to see as you make a cup of coffee is a two inch long flying cockroach. This unfortunately, is a common occurrence across the U.S. These cockroaches, the oriental, and more specifically the sewer cockroach, breed outdoors for the most part, but find their way indoors when looking for cooler locations during the summer, or warmer places in the winter. They come up through outdoor and even indoor plumbing, and breed in water meter boxes, parks, and golf courses. Resilient insects that they are, they make appearances in all seasons, and are not as susceptible to weather conditions as most other outdoor breeding pests. During times of drought or excessive rain, they simply relocate, usually into your home.

Unlike the German and brown-banded cockroaches, control of these pests is not a simple matter of eliminating all that are within a structure. Because they come mainly from the outside or up plumbing, ongoing pest control services are necessary in order to eliminate this bug once it enters the yard or house. Utilizing Sexton Pest Control in conjunction with proper screening of drains and other entry points will greatly minimize, if not completely eradicate their presence.
