Modesto Cockroach Control
Cockroaches are an invasive pest that prefer living among or near human dwellings. They relentlessly hunt for points of entry into a home, and once they find their way in, they can be hard to exterminate. If left alone, even a small number of cockroaches can grow quickly, thanks to their breeding habits. Roach populations can multiply to the point where they can overrun your home. Aside from being an embarrassing annoyance for homeowners, they can also be a health hazard through their potential for spreading harmful bacteria and disease-causing pathogens.
When you have a cockroach problem, trying to handle it yourself with store-bought products will not do the trick. You need experienced professionals you can trust to eliminate the invasion. Best Pest Management is a locally owned business that has been tackling roach problems for homeowners in the Central Valley since 2018 and can do the same for you.

Cockroaches Commonly Found in Modesto Homes
Out of the nearly 4,000 species of cockroaches in the world, only about 30 come in contact with humans. The rest like to stay far away from civilization. An even smaller number of those 30 frequent indoors. In the Central Valley, the most common cockroach species we have encountered are the American Cockroach, German Cockroach, Oriental Cockroach, and the Brown-Banded Cockroach.
The most common cockroach species in houses is the German Cockroach. This small-sized roach has a short lifespan of up to a year but in that span of time they can create such a massive infestation that its problems can be unending without professional intervention. You would literally have hundreds of thousands of German roaches in your home if you left them to their own devices.
German cockroaches are excellent hiders and perform all their foraging activities at night under the cover of darkness. A female cockroach is constantly producing eggs that are stored in capsules of 30 to 50. You may see the egg capsule hanging out of her backside, which, when ready, will be dropped and hatch out nymph roaches. Nymphs can grow to adults in as quickly as four months.
The fast turnaround time of the reproduction cycle means that a small handful of German cockroaches can become a full-blown infestation that will be hard to control without the help of experienced experts.

If you have a small invasion of cockroaches, you may not notice it right away. Over time, as the population grows, signs of their presence will become undeniable.
The most apparent signs of a significant cockroach infestation are:
- Cockroach droppings. These droppings look like black pepper or coffee grounds. In areas where the droppings are concentrated, you will smell a strong, musty, and almost sweet odor. That’s because the droppings are ripe with pheromones that communicate to other roaches that this is a hot spot to frequent.
- Egg casings. Technically known as ootheca, these are little brownish-beige egg capsules. These are often found in cabinets and crevices or can be located on kitchen counters or behind appliances. An open casing means a new generation of cockroaches have hatched and are ready to carry on the lifecycle and build up the population.
- Live cockroaches. If you see a cockroach in the middle of the day, this is another cause for concern because cockroaches should be resting and in hiding during daylight hours. If they are seen crawling around, this means the infestation is so large that there is not enough room in their hiding spaces, so they are looking elsewhere for a place to hide.
