Need referrals for good professional Cockroach Exterminator

Asked by Phong D. 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 despise cockroaches. I had a very unpleasant experience with the insect a couple of times. They are probably my least favorite pest out there. I could easily be happy the rest of my life not seeing one ever again.

If your selling a home I would perform the extermination beforehand anyways. It would be a better selling point with the service already being done. That way the new clients would be more at ease knowing the job has already been done and they won't need to til the next year. http://www.arab-cincy.com/about

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/

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.

I don't think that's how it works in other states. I think you specifically have to ask for someone to check for pests. Some states must just have less problems with pests, but I think it's important to get any house inspected before buying. http://www.cal-rid.com/en/about_us.html
