Need referrals for good professional Cockroach Exterminator

Asked by Phong Lam, Philadelphia, PA Mon May 28, 2012

Hello Everyone,

One of my clients are looking for a good & reputable cockroach exterminator that can do the job professionally to prevent these bugs from appearing in a home that they are about to settle in on. My clients just want to do a prevention in case there is any.

If anyone have any recommendations or referrals that you can pass the contact info along, please drop a comment below. Thank you in advance for all of your help and attention!

I definitely know the feeling. We had a really bad cockroach infestation and it was the hardest thing to get rid of. Has he asked his friends and family for referrals? If he has cockroaches, or even wants to prevent them, there's a good chance that his neighbors have talked to exterminators. That's where I would start. http://akpestcontrolva.com/

Finding an efficient exterminator can be difficult. I know that in the past I have had trouble finding an exterminator that can get rid of everything I need. I think that especially with cockroaches, it will be incredibly important to get rid of all of them. I would suggest that you have your client look for reviews online, and then see what they can come up with to help them with their cockroach problem! http://www.cairnspest.com.au/cockroaches

I would check with the Better Business Bureau and ask some of the local businesses and neighbors if they can recommend someone. I would even contact the local restaurants since food establishments usually have contracts with pest control companies.

My wife and I recently moved into a new house. We had an inspection done and everything, however, after we moved in, I noticed that there were cockroaches in the basement. I don't know why or how they got there! I need to find an exterminator as soon as possible. I don't want the situation getting worse. http://www.arab-cincy.com/about

Getting bugs in the house is the worst ever. I have been worried about an infestation coming in after this winter, so I'm looking around for a good exterminator as well. No one wants to deal with spiders and cockroaches! http://www.cal-rid.com/en/about_us.html

As I stated to Phong, check with local restaurants as to who they use. I know in my area many food establishments have a contract with someone.

I feel for your clients, getting an infestation is the worst. I would suggest you and them both look for a good home pest control service you agree upon. Cockroaches are my least favorite too, so you got pretty unlucky there. I hope you get those out of there pretty soon before they move in. Good luck to you and the family moving in. http://www.killingsworthpestcontrol.com/services/

I would call around your area to see if any of your clients friends or neighbors know of anyone to hire. If your client is having problems, the odds of his neighbors having problems are pretty high. I would contact them and get their referral. Good luck and I hope you find what you need! http://www.protermite.com/roaches.html

Thank you so much for the recommendation. I have a disgusting cockroach infestation. They are everywhere in my kitchen. My daughter has been eating out for a month straight because I don't trust the food in our home. I hear these pests are difficult to eradicate, but I hope I am lucky.

LOL.... Don't you have a pest control company you use? In VA we generally have termite inspections for any home sale and anyone who does those inspections is also qualified to do other types of exterminations.
