Roach Species in Phoenix Valley Arizona

American Cockroach.

4 main species of roaches throughout the Phoenix AZ Valley & 5 step pest control process.

The most common roaches throughout the Phoenix Valley are American and German Roaches. Roaches are considered a public health threat because they cause asthma and allergies, and because they feed and breed in unsanitary places (like sewers, septic tanks, and garbage storage) from which they spread disease causing bacteria.

What may seem like 1 German Roach can explode into a huge Infestation in Homes and Business

Unfortunately, anyone can get German Roaches; it doesn’t matter how clean you are. These little roaches are like bombs waiting to go off. One little roach can hitch a ride on anything, and the situation just explodes from there… suddenly your infested, and overrun with roaches! They feed on everything from human hair to wall paper, and They’ve built up a resistance to many pesticides! Battling German Roaches can be extremely frustrating, and professional Pest Control is required for Control.

Responsible Pest Control is a great service! We had a pest problem that another pest company could not deal with… They actually were treating for the wrong type of bug. So we hired Responsible Pest Control, and they took care of the problem in just 3 services.”
