Eliminating German Cockroaches And Other Services Offered By Pasadena Exterminators

Posted by Daniel Lawrence on June, 2017

German cockroaches are often found in kitchens and hide in dark, damp places. If food crumbs and liquid are left on counter tops and tables, roaches may spread to other parts of a kitchen. The following steps describe how to eliminate roaches and prevent future infestations. These tips, along with cleaning a kitchen on a regular basis, will provide a homeowner with the results that they desire.


  • broom
  • mop
  • disinfectant
  • bucket of soapy water
  • bleach
  • orange oil
  • boric acid powder granules
  • thin paintbrush

Cleaning And Sanitizing

Before cleaning a kitchen, a dining set and any other large items should be removed from the room. Loose dirt and food crumbs need to be swept up and disposed of. Any trash that is lying around should be bagged up and brought outdoors. A cleaning solution can be prepared by adding equal amounts of warm water and a disinfectant to a bucket. A small amount of detergent should be added to a cleaning solution. A standard mop can be used to treat laminate or tile flooring.

If there is hardened residue on portions of a floor, a few drops of bleach can be added to a cleaning solution to strengthen it. After rinsing out a mop and bucket, a small amount of orange oil needs to be mixed with water. Orange oil is commonly used as a natural pesticide and deterrent. A mop can be used to apply orange oil that has been mixed with water.

Applying Boric Acid And Herbal Oil

After flooring has dried, boric acid granules can be sprinkled along the perimeter of a kitchen. A thin paintbrush can be used to spread boric acid out if too much is applied to a specific area. Boric acid will kill roaches in two ways. If roaches walk through powder, their bodies will be punctured and the pests will eventually die. If roaches ingest boric acid, their internal organs will shut down. After roaches have been eliminated, maintaining the cleanliness of a kitchen will be necessary.
