Cockroach Extermination Solutions for Homes & Businesses in Los Angeles & Orange Counties
We all hate cockroaches! They are gross, and when we see them in our homes, we are all unhappy. But you may be asking, how did they get into my house? Did you know cockroaches can be harmful to you and threaten the cleanliness of your home or office? Cockroaches are difficult to exterminate because each species of cockroach requires a specific elimination tactic or means of extermination.
Cockroaches are famous for their ability to survive what most other pests cannot, which means most of your standard DIY treatments won’t work on these resilient nuisances. If you suspect cockroaches have infiltrated your home and made it their own, you need to call in Mecaf Termite & Pest Control for professional help eradicating them.

Cockroach Species Impacting Long Beach & Surrounding Communities
Generally, there are four common species of roaches found in the US, but in Southern California, the German Cockroach is the most prevalent type plaguing homeowners in Los Angeles and Orange County. Cockroaches are similar to beetles in their body structure and protective outer body. Cockroaches usually make their homes in areas that are warm and moist. They can be found close to water sources that make it easy for them to eat and breed at the same time.
One of the greatest difficulties of eliminating German Cockroaches is they have a very rapid reproductive cycle. They can repopulate quickly and spread their filth throughout your home and property. We have seen these cockroaches multiply quickly and thrive in our temperate climate (they thrive in warm conditions). Female cockroaches of this species can produce 40 young at once, which means if you see a cockroach, it’s likely not alone. It also means a small brood of roaches can rapidly become a large infestation.
Consequences of Ignoring a Cockroach Infestation
German cockroaches can cause health problems for families as they produce an odor known to worsen allergies and cause asthma in children. Additionally, they spread germs and bacteria on their feet, exposing humans to typhus and salmonella. They also produce excrement and byproducts that spread illness, germs, and microbes throughout homes. They have been known to pollute food and water sources by tainting them with staph and gastroenteritis. If that wasn’t enough to make you worry, these cockroaches also love to eat paper, which means anything you have printed is at risk.
At Mecaf Termite & Pest Control, we prefer to use eco-friendly means of combating cockroach infiltrations, so you can beat the pests without having to leave home for long periods of time. We will also work together with you as a team to fight the cockroach reproductive cycle and eliminate these pests from your home. One of the best ways to do this is to cut off food and water sources for cockroaches. They cannot live where they cannot feed. There’s an old saying; if you have one cockroach, then you likely have a cockroach problem. If you’ve seen cockroaches on your property, it’s time to call in professional help.
