Your Kitchen's Biggest Nightmare

Let us help you get rid of those uninvited pest

Undesirable & Uninvited Guest to Homes and Businesses

Roaches are just gross, for lack of a better word, and an infestation of them is one of the more unpleasant challenges a home or business owner can face. In addition to being unsightly and contaminating food supplies, they can transmit various bacterial infections to humans.

Because they reproduce quickly and are experts at hiding away in nooks and crannies, tracking them down and eliminating them can be a real challenge. They also come in different varieties that require different tactics. The good news is, Accu-Pest Exterminating has years of experience in locating, identifying, and exterminating cockroaches in South Louisiana homes and businesses.

Telling Cockroaches Apart

Oriental Roach

The Oriental roach is only an inch or two in length and usually lives in or near a mulch bed. They’re dark brown, almost black, and are easy to get under control with regular pest control.

American Roach

The most common roach in Louisiana is the American roach. They are brown, about an inch or two long, and fly a lot – more than 100 feet from their nest. They usually live near heavy foliage, so you can prevent them with good landscaping and regular pest control.

Asian Roach

There is also the Asian roach, which is much smaller – only one or two centimeters long. They also fly and live in heavy foliage but often swarm in packs of hundreds. They’re attracted to water and to the temperature difference between your home and the outdoors.

German Roach

The last kind of roach that you’ll see in Lafayette and surrounding areas is the German roach. They are the worst kind of roach, the most difficult to get rid of. They will nest near a water source such as your sink or dishwasher, and they reproduce very quickly. A single female can have 10,000 descendants in a single year. They can spread diseases and lead to respiratory infections in children.
