Cockroaches in Central Florida

Cockroaches are very common in homes and business spaces, and even though nobody likes to have them, they always find their way into an area if not controlled. Having them around is not only annoying but also harmful to the health of the people living there as well as their belongings. Cockroaches cause a lot of allergic reactions in people, and they are carriers of some disease pathogens.

From food poisoning (Genera Salmonella) to diarrhea (Escherichia) amongst other diseases, Cockroaches are responsible for them all. There are about 4,000 living species of cockroaches around the world, with 70 of those species scattered all over the United States of America.

What is the best method to get rid of cockroaches?

Most times, people try to control the number of cockroaches they have in their living spaces. But while they may be able to kill some of them, at Blaum’s Termite and Pest Control Services, we always recommend our Cockroach treatment Service. Our technicians are experts at detecting, finding, treating, and monitoring different cockroach species.

The good thing about using our service is that we tailor the service to fit your needs. Getting rid of cockroaches is a process that you have to keep up with regularly. A lot of people make the mistake of making it a one-time treatment, but our experts will make sure your cockroach problem is solved permanently. Our cockroach treatment process comes in three steps:

  1. Detection and Identification.
  2. Thorough and Effective Treatment.
  3. Regular and Continuous Monitoring.

Understanding the biology of cockroaches

The lifecycle of a cockroach entails egg, nymph, and adult. The nymph stage of a cockroach is similar to the adult stage in appearance except that adult cockroaches have wings and are bigger. Cockroaches are white when they emerge from their eggs, and after a few hours, the cuticle becomes harder, and their color changes. Cockroaches in their egg, nymph, and adult stages are always in the same place; thus, when getting rid of one, you get rid of the others too. Female cockroaches produce the eggs and leave them to hatch in a few days. Some cockroach species like the German cockroach lays its egg between 24 to 48 hours before they hatch into nymphs while some other species incubate their eggs themselves and give birth to nymphs.

Habits of Cockroaches

Cockroaches are mostly nocturnal, and they are primarily found in cracks and crevices where no one can find them easily. You will also find them around areas with food and stagnant water.

What is Blaum's Strategy For Controlling Central Florida Cockroaches?


This is the inspection of everything going into a building to check if any of those items contain cockroach harborages. Prevention also involves checking the physical condition of a building and if there are measures to prevent cockroach entry.

Good Sanitation and Hygiene

This involves putting in place healthy sanitation practices such as throwing away spoilt and leftover food, getting rid of stagnant water, and blocking out crevices and holes.


Our experts visit the infested area to check for the presence of cockroaches. Since they are pesky animals that have good hiding spots, we come along with a flashlight and flushing agent to identify their hotspots so we can know where to administer the treatment.

Initial Treatment

This involves the use of aerosols, insecticides, residual baits, insect growth regulators, and pesticides in capsules. We apply all of these to the hot areas and every crack and crevice in the home or commercial space. We apply just enough to kill and repel the cockroaches.

Follow-up Treatment

This service comprises inspecting the already-treated areas and some more areas to see if the roaches have found their way back. This is to confirm that the cockroaches are gone permanently.
