Tucson German Cockroaches Exterminator | Control & Removal Service

German Cockroaches

German cockroaches are one of the most common and persistent pests found in homes and businesses worldwide, including in Tucson. These small insects are known for their ability to quickly infest an area and are particularly challenging to exterminate due to their rapid breeding cycles. Bill’s Home Service provides expert solutions for identifying and eliminating German cockroach infestations effectively.


  • Color: Light brown to tan, with two dark stripes running from their head to the base of their wings.
  • Size: Approximately 0.5 to 0.7 inches in length.
  • Body: Oval-shaped with six legs and two long antennae.


German cockroaches prefer warm and humid environments close to food and water sources, making kitchens and food-handling areas ideal habitats. They are nocturnal and tend to hide during the day in cracks and crevices, under sinks, and in electrical appliances like dishwashers, ovens, and refrigerators. At night, they scavenge for food scraps on counters, floors, and pantries. Control of infestations can be especially difficult due to their rapid reproductive rate of up to six generations per year.


German cockroaches pose significant health risks as they are known carriers of bacteria and pathogens that can cause diseases such as salmonella and gastroenteritis. Their droppings and shedding body parts can also trigger allergies and asthma, particularly in children and sensitive individuals.

Control Measures 

Effective control of German cockroaches requires a comprehensive approach:

  • Sanitation: Reduce food and water availability by keeping areas clean and dry, and storing food in sealed containers.
  • Exclusion: Seal cracks and crevices to minimize hiding places and potential entry points.
  • Baiting and Insecticides: Use of professional-grade baits and insecticides targeted to this species can be effective in reducing populations.

Bill’s Home Service specializes in the control and elimination of German cockroaches with tailored strategies that address both the infestation and preventative measures to ensure they do not return.
