Controlling Cockroaches In Modesto, Oakdale, & Manteca Since 1998
Most homeowners recognize that seeing a cockroach scurrying across their kitchen counter or across their bathroom floor is not a good thing, but they may not realize just how serious a health threat this vermin can present to their families. You may have heard of the American Cockroach or the German Cockroach, but have you heard of Staphylococcus, Escherichia Coli, Salmonella or Streptococcus? All of these diseases are bacteria borne and found on the legs and bodies of the cockroach. When you see them, they are depositing this bacteria on your counters and floors, and you definitely need to rid your home of this carrier before they infect your family.
One of the most distressing realities of a cockroach infestation is the necessity of sterilizing ALL of your food preparation areas before each and every meal, as the cockroaches deposit bacteria everywhere they run, every one of them, every time. That means before breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and desert you need to disinfect. Everything, every time.
It is imperative that you contact, IMMEDIATELY, a reliable pest control company to exterminate and prevent re-infestation. The cost of controlling the cockroaches is a bargain when you consider a trip to the doctor or the emergency room to treat an illness once it infects your family.
Please recognize the importance of a maintenance program after the original infestation is eliminated, because if they have invaded your home once, it can re-occur. Find out where they are coming from, and keep them outside your home. It is the only way to fully protect your family.
You do not need to identify the variety of cockroach you have, you just need to contact us by phone or e-mail today in order to rid you of the pest. But if your curiosity is raised, here are the basic differences of this disease carrier. For Escalon roach control click here. Scroll down to bottom of page for more info.

The American Cockroach
This pest is traditionally a reddish-brown color and the adult is usually 2 inches in length. They possess wings but are not very good at flight, using the scurrying motion found so disturbing by homeowners when you turn on a light in the middle of the night and spot them. They might be found inside your home, in the garage, crawl space or outdoors. They can also be found in the sewer systems which helps explain where they pick up much of the bacteria they can track inside your home. The sewer system allows them access to drains found within your home, and they frequently enter your home through them. This large variety of cockroach can be found in food preparation areas, and you can become ill when eating in contaminated restauarants, food trucks or take out places.
The German Cockroach
This is the most common cockroach found indoors. It usually is a light-brown color, approximately 1/2″ long, and have several darker stripes running the length of their body. They also have wings, but unlike the American cockroach they do not fly. Typically found in the warmer areas of homes, especially the bathroom and kitchens, they multiply at an alarming rate and leave egg sacs everywhere. The female of the species actually carries these egg sacs on her back, which makes the infestation that much more difficult to control. Let one female survive, and you are back to the beginning. It is always better to eradicate an infestation before it multiplies and takes over your entire house.
- If the first two varieties of cockroaches hasn’t thoroughly creeped you out, you are ready for the 3rd variety, the Oriental Cockroach.
The Oriental Cockroach
Mid-way in size between the larger American Cockroach and the Smaller German Cockroach, the Oriental Cockroach is approximately 1 -1/4″ long with a dark brown or black body. This variety of cockroach prefers the outdoors, but can be driven inside by the cold, and wind up in any damp areas, including your basement, crawl spaces, drains and wall voids.
This variety of cockroach should be identified and eliminated immediately, as they are accompanied by a noxious odor and called the dirtiest of all varieties. Since you already know how many diseases they can carry, you do not want to tolerate them inside your home.
Regardless of the variety of cockroach invading your home, they all prefer to remain hidden in small, hard to access areas inside or outside your home. They are prolific breeders, and the earlier you eliminate them, the better chance you have to completely eradicate them.
Our Company specializes in several methods of treating your cockroach infestation. The first step is always the inspection of your property by our experienced technicians. When this inspection is done and the cockroach identified, we can then review what your options are for extermination and control.

Cockroach Extermination and Control
We currently specialize in eradication and control of all varieties of cockroaches found in Modesto, Manteca, Oakdale & Turlock, as well as the surrounding counties of San Joaquin and Stanislaus. As outlined above, cockroaches carry diseases harmful to your family. Since these vermin are known to have existed for at least 300 million years and many believe they would be the only survivors of a nuclear war, it is understandable why they can be so difficult to treat.
Not only must you exterminate them, you must deny them the ability to re-infest your home again. They are the worst sort of vermin, carrying diseases which can be fatal. They also contaminate your home with feces known to cause allergens and the subsequent asthma that can also be life threatening. The best plan for any homeowner is to find them, kill them, and keep them out.
