Best Cockroach Extermination Company In Boise
Cockroaches are one of the most difficult pests to get rid of. They are nocturnal — which makes them hard to spot — and they can reproduce quickly. If you have seen one or two cockroaches scurrying around, there are likely many more hiding in your home.
Cockroaches are known to carry bacteria that can cause Typhoid, Dysentery, and even Polio. In addition, they have been linked to asthma and allergic reactions in children and adults.
As they rummage through your food, cockroaches can quickly contaminate fruit, meat, grains, and all other types of food. Their droppings on food and surfaces can be especially harmful if ingested.

How Do We Exterminate Cockroaches?
Cockroaches may be good at hiding, but our experienced technicians are trained to find and eliminate them. Cockroaches prefer dark, moist places under the sink, behind the refrigerator, and even down the bathroom drain. During an inspection, we will visit your home to search for:
- Infestation sites, such as in basements, under kitchen appliances, and inside of drains and pipes.
- Signs of an infestation, including droppings, egg casings, and foul smells.
Our thorough inspections cover all parts of the home. We want to make sure we understand where exactly cockroaches are hiding.
Since cockroaches can reproduce quickly, an infestation can rapidly get out of control. Our team gets right to work exterminating any and all traces of cockroaches in the home. Here's what you can expect on the day of treatment:
- At a time that is convenient for you and your family, our technicians arrive and immediately begin applying treatments.
- We apply treatments that are tough on cockroaches but safe for your family.
- For some situations, we may need to return for multiple treatments to re-apply.
We will not finish until all signs of cockroaches are gone from your Boise area home. Our fast-acting treatments are effective at eliminating all cockroaches and their eggs.
We know that you never want to see cockroaches ever again. That's why we focus not only on geting rid of current cockroaches, but also making sure none come back in the future. One of our technicians will walk around your home to:
- Strategically apply treatments to prevent cockroaches from entering your home.
- Make recommendations to reduce the chance of an infestation, including closing windows and using a fan in the bathroom.
Our goal is that you never see another cockroach in your home ever again.
Having cockroaches in the home is not necessarily a sign of a dirty home. They are attracted to warm and humid areas with food and water sources, and they can thrive on very low resources. A small leak in a pipe or spilled food in the basement can quickly attract these pests.
A cockroach can enter your home in several ways, including through cracks in the foundation, gaps around doors and windows, and even on clothing or luggage. Once they're inside, they'll start to reproduce quickly. A cockroach can live for up to a year, and they can lay dozens of eggs at a time.

We have happily used Pestcom for several years for exterior pest service. We developed a sudden ant infestation inside our home in multiple separate locations simultaneously this winter. It took two rounds, but Pestcom knocked them out with minimal disruption to our daily lives and at no additional cost. Highly recommend.Stephan Montamat
I was 100% thrilled with the service I had from pest.com today. The two guys that came were so thorough, and so pleasant, and so accommodating that I truly was so happy with their service. Looking forward to a long relationship with pest.comGail Smith
They do a great job every time. I had a new technician, Matt, this time and he was just as excellent as previous ones. Right on time, quick, and professional. He even crawled under my deck to get rid of a hornets nest I didn’t even know about. I appreciate it, Sir! Thank youShua Cizyr

Cockroach Bite Treatments
Cockroach bites can cause reactions ranging from mild to severe. In most cases, cockroach bites will result in redness, swelling, and itchiness at the site of the bite. More severe reactions may include hives, difficulty breathing, and nausea. While cockroach bites are not typically life-threatening, they can cause serious complications if they are not properly treated.
If you're unlucky enough to get bitten by a cockroach, there are a couple things you can do to ease the discomfort. If the bite is itchy, apply a cold compress or take an antihistamine to help relieve the itchiness. You should also clean the area with soap and water to prevent infection. If the bite is more severe, you may need oral or topical steroids to reduce swelling and inflammation.
After treating the bite, take quick action to remove the cockroaches from your home by calling your local pest control company.
Where Do Cockroaches Hide?
Cockroaches are nocturnal creatures that spend daylight hours hiding in cracks and crevices around the home. They are often found in kitchens and bathrooms, as these areas provide them with a food and water source. Cockroaches can also be found in basements, crawl spaces, and attics.
Besides looking for spaces with ample food and water, cockroaches also prefer warm and humid areas. For this reason, they may also be hiding near heat sources such as furnaces and water heaters.
What Do Cockroaches Eat?
Cockroaches are scavengers who eat just about anything, including garbage, food scraps, and other cockroaches. However, they prefer sweet, starchy, or grease-filled foods. In the wild, cockroaches are often found near rotting logs or fallen fruit, where they can feast on the decaying matter.
Cockroaches will also eat dead insects and small vertebrates. While cockroaches will drink water if necessary, they get most of the moisture they need from their food. This is why cockroaches are often found in kitchens and other food preparation areas.
They are not fussy eaters and will nibble on soap, toothpaste, and glue if given the opportunity. In fact, cockroaches have been known to survive for months without food as long as they have access to water.
Myth Or Real? Can Cockroaches Live Without A Head?
Cockroaches are amazing creatures that can survive in just about any environment. And that includes without a head. Yes, cockroaches can survive without their head for a short amount of time because of their open circulatory system.
Without a head, cockroaches usually only live for about one week, but they can still cause a lot of damage during that time.
Can Cockroaches Fly?
While all cockroaches have wings, many of them don't use them to fly. That being said, there are some species of roaches, such as the Asian Cockroach and the Smoky Brown Cockroach, that can fly around. Fortunately, these types of flying cockroaches are not found in the Boise area.
The American Cockroach, which is present in Boise, can use their wings to jump and glide for short distances, so there's a small chance you may see a cockroach airborne. However, the most common cockroach in the Treasure Valley and throughout Idaho is the German Cockroach, which does not fly.
