• Absolutely love using Responsible Pest Services. My favorite part of the service is that we receive emails confirming the date for our service. This is of great help so we can ensure that our pets are inside. Also, we can add special notes for the service agent so that we make sure he checks some tough to see/reach area.

  • The technician arrived promptly on time, was very friendly and professional, described in detail the services to be performed, and even noticed I had pets and talked about the safety of the products without me having to ask. I was pleasantly surprised by the extent of the detail-oriented service!

  • The spiders seem to have fled from our front and back yards. All in all, we are quite pleased with Responsible Pest Control. We will use them again.

  • Moved to Responsible from Clark, I felt Clark was “checking a box” and getting paid. Not the case with Responsible Pest Services, they take time to do a complete job. I’ve had no ant issues since we started using them, and the ants are the worst in the winter. If you are with somebody else consider a move to Responsible.

German Cockroach

American Cockroach

Oriental Cockroach

German Cockroach – The German Cockroach is about 0.63? inches in length and can be easily recognized by the two dark, longitudinal stripes on the “shield” at the front of the body under which the head is located. The German cockroach is the most prolific breeder among all cockroaches and like all cockroaches; it is omnivorous and will eat virtually anything. This pest will first locate itself in bathrooms and the kitchen, as close as possible to food and moisture sources and then spread throughout a home or building as the population grows. During its life it will spend about 80 percent of its time resting in cracks and voids.

American Cockroach -The American Cockroach is among the largest of all cockroaches with adults ranging between 1?- 1 1/2? They are reddish brown and have a yellowish margin on the body region behind the head. American cockroaches generally live in moist areas, but can survive in dry areas if they have access to water. They prefer warm temperatures and do not tolerate cold temperatures well. In residential areas, these cockroaches live in basements and sewers, and may move outdoors into yards during warm weather. Like all cockroaches, they are omnivorous and will eat virtually anything.

Oriental Cockroach -The Oriental Cockroach or “water bug” is about 1? in length. The female is entirely black, while the male is black with two brown wings. This difference in appearance often leads homeowners to believe they have two different types of cockroaches. During the summer, oriental cockroaches move outdoors where they may venture into neighboring buildings. It inhabits sewers and storm culverts and will enter buildings through floor drains. During the colder months, they invade homes, establishing themselves in basements and crawl spaces. This cockroach can be a public health concern because they have been known to carry Salmonella bacteria-the organisms responsible for food poisoning.
