Roaches in Cherokee County Georgia

German Roaches thrive in warm, humid environments. Parts of the home such as kitchens and bathrooms provide ideal locations for the roaches. The German roach is a scavenger, and can consume even the smallest amounts of food. They are also known to consume certain atypical food sources, such as the binding of books and toothpaste.

The German roach is infamous for its ability to rapidly reproduce. It is not uncommon for extensive infestations to be found hidden in homes. The German roach is most commonly brought into homes in boxes, bags, or any other container they can hide within.

Shortly after being introduced into a space, the German roach will often seek out a hidden area in which to spend time during the day, coming out at night to seek food. The females will create egg capsules, or ootheca, that can produce up to 50 roaches. The females will often carry these egg capsules around until they are ready to hatch, making it difficult to destroy the population inside of the home.

There are many easy to identify signs of roach infestation. The German roaches will often produce droppings that are dark in color. These will either be small and beadlike or just dark stains found around small cracks, wall openings, or the corners of rooms. Another sign is an unpleasant, musty odor that is produced by the roaches. This is caused by certain chemicals excreted by the roaches, and will be strongest near to their population center.

German roaches are difficult to remove. Their infestations are often massive, with a population that is rapidly reproducing and remains well hidden throughout the day. Because of the difficulty in identifying and treating the German roach, it is best to consult a pest control professional.

Just wanted to thank our exterminator Joel @Canton Termite for not only responding very quickly when we had a minor insect infestation but for ensuring we stay bug free with our normal service. He always gives us plenty of notice and arrives on time and does a very professional job. Also want to thank the entire team... Tim, Ed, William and Brent for doing an awesome job with my home and my rental homes for the last few years. Keep up the great work...

Last year the Cherokee County senior center assisted in me in finding a company to take care of a roach infestation in my home. I had tried several companies but I kept paying and the roaches never went away. William Botts with Canton Termite and Pest control came out and in 2 treatments got the job done. I am on a fixed income and appreciated the integrity and quality of this company. Today I realized I never thanked Canton Termite and Pest Control. I am thankful for what they did for me and refer my friends and anyone else who ask. They get the job done!

HONEST, HELPFUL, NOT IN BUSINESS TO RIP PEOPLE OFF! I called this company and spoke with a gentleman regarding a strange substance on the exterior of our home. I thought it might be termites because the paint was removed from the area as though it was being eaten. He asked me to email him a photo. He called me back and assured me it was not termites. He and the owner of the company gave me some suggestions of how to treat this mold-type substance. This could have easily gone in the opposite direction and charged me lots of $ to investigate a pest problem. No need to wonder if you will get a fair, honest deal with this company. They have a perfect 5 star rating because they have earned it the old fashioned way - by being honest.

I called William for a problem with carpenter bees. He was at my home within the hour. Problem solved. As we chatted I mentioned that in the spring we had birds nesting in our attic, now gone, but expected to return next year. He took the time to inspect the attic to figure out how they were getting in, and seal off the entrance... no additional charge. In short, he solved next years problem as a "good will" gesture (no pun intended). Great job. Great service. Did I mention William is now on my speed dial?

Great customer service and prompt attention! William came out and did our initial application, but we need more treatment. Ed called me in no time and set up another treatment, same day! When Brent came out he was so professional and friendly! Took care of the application quickly, reassuring us that they are there whenever we need them! So glad I am using Canton Termite and Pest Control now for my pest services!
