Cockroach Control In Wilmington, DE

Serving Delaware, Maryland, & Pennsylvania

Cockroaches Don't Belong In Any Wilmington Home

If there were such a thing as pest Olympics, cockroaches might just be the top contenders for the hide-and-seek gold medal. Cockroaches are nocturnal insects that spend most of their time hidden in any crack or crevice they can squeeze into, which can be as small as three millimeters wide. So if you have noticed one or two cockroaches scurrying through your home, the chances are high that hundreds more are tucked away in their hidey-holes, munching on whatever crumbs they can find.

With over 25 years of experience providing professional pest solutions that are odorless and non-toxic, Delmar Pest Control delivers quality home pest control options throughout our Delaware service areas, as well as trusted commercial pest solutions for your Wilmington business.

Our Wilmington, DE Cockroach Control Service

Cockroach on its back on the floor of a home

Cockroaches are very common pests that invade homes and businesses around the country and are also among the most difficult to get rid of. Due to their ability to hide in walls and cracks, evade capture with exceptional speed, and breed at disturbing rates, a cockroach infestation can quickly get out of control. Call the professionals at Delmar Pest Control for effective, same-day service at the first sign of a cockroach problem.

Each home is unique and requires a customized cockroach treatment plan, which is why we always start with a free inspection. After thoroughly examining your home or business, our roach exterminators propose a cockroach extermination plan that is guaranteed to get you results. Our service doesn't end after treatment! We continue to monitor your property to ensure that your pest problem is not at risk of returning. If needed, we will perform additional treatments to keep your home or business cockroach-free.

We understand that dealing with cockroaches can be extremely frustrating. In order to successfully make progress in dealing with your cockroach problem, it's important to know some basic facts about these creepy pests:

  • Cockroaches love areas with lots of food, warmth, and moisture. Keeping your home clean and dry is the best way to encourage them to move elsewhere.
  • Cockroaches are nocturnal, meaning they mostly come out at night. If you see cockroaches during the day, it is generally a sign of overcrowding and a serious infestation.
  • Many cockroach species have evolved to be resistant to over-the-counter pesticides, making 'do-it-yourself' methods increasingly ineffective. Professional roach exterminators, like Delmar Pest Control, constantly improve pest control methods and products to ensure success.

Does DIY Pest Control Work Against Cockroaches?

When you're in the heat of a cockroach infestation, you may attempt to control the problem yourself. Unfortunately, DIY pest control methods and products often cause more harm than good. Proper pest control requires applications that can be dangerous if not handled by a trained professional, and over-the-counter materials are just not as effective as professional products. Professional exterminators have training in the responsible handling and use of pesticides. The wrong products and treatments may temporarily drive pests away, only to have them return in larger numbers than before. Therefore, we always recommend you contact a pest control professional for assistance.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Cockroach Control

Cockroaches generally have oval-shaped bodies with antennae and six spiny legs. Some species of cockroaches have wings that lay flat against their backs, although not all cockroaches use these wings for flight.
