Cockroach Facts

Cockroaches like to hide in dark spaces and only come out when they need to eat. They can go days without food and even live with no heads. They have been known to carry bacteria into homes or offices that can make people and pets sick. They are harmful to your health and need to be exterminated from your home.

Although the damage that they create on your property is not quite as severe, cockroaches are insects that are closely related to termites. These creatures are one of the four most commonly known and dealt with pest species. In fact, for approximately 320 million years, cockroaches have been roaming the planet. Due to this reason alone, they’ve adapted to various types of weather and environment conditions. Basically, these creatures can live almost anywhere. Their bodies can tolerate temperatures ranging from tropical heat to ice cold environments. Roaches are generally classified as omnivores, meaning they can eat on a variety of food product. This can include sandwiches, fruits, leather, paper glue, hair, dead insects, soiled clothing, and more. With this being said, they can eat almost any and everything, which makes them very toxic and dirty. Cockroaches harbor symbiotic protozoans and bacteria in their digestive systems to be able to digest cellulose. While roaches may seem rather small, their bodies consist of tubes that are attached to different openings in their body. This allows the passage of both oxygen and carbon dioxide to go in and out of their bodies.

Get Rid of Their Food Source

While these insects may be constantly feeding on almost anything in sight, you can still cut off their source of food. That could be those forgotten cereal boxes at the back of your cabinets, the opened package of chips left on the kitchen table, unwashed dishes in the sink, unnoticeable traces of food on the floor, crumbs and etc…you get the idea. Start off by emptying your counters completely and wiping cleaning up all spilled food and leftovers thoroughly. Another task you can do is wash your dishes every time you finish a meal. This means doing your dishes however many times you eat within your day, and that may seem a little extensive, but it’ll be worth it when you no longer have to deal with these pests.

Cut Off Water Supply

While cockroaches may be fond of eating on your meals and snacks in the kitchen, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they need these sugary and salty food items to live. It turns out that roaches can live for up to 30 days without food, but they can only survive for 7 days without water. This means the less water they have access to, the sooner you can rid of them. Clean up all countertops and sink areas, both in your kitchen and bathroom(s) from top to bottom, to beneath, reaching every inch of surface. Make sure to check your house for leaks and other plumbing problems that can cause moisture and dampness. Immediately fix these to begin eliminating their supply.

first of all, the salesman (coley) who came to my house, was a great guy. I pit him through the ringer over 4-5 visits he came to my door trying to sign me up for this service. He was not pushy and he was very friendly with me and my wife. If I had three guys working for me like him, I could retire this year. Manners and professionalism were present at all times with every visit. The technician Donnie was just as wonderful and I felt informed and very comfortable having him in my home. both of these Gentlemen were top notch and I would have them both in my home anytime, not only for the service but also as a Friend that can be trusted and revered as a professional and a part of my Family. Thank you again for this amazing service. We both look forward to a long business relationship. BRAVO!!!!!!

After reading all the great reviews I felt confident in using Go-Forth for my extermination needs. Unfortunately my expectations fell short. First, the technician showed up an hour late, then spent the first 20 minutes of his time on site trying to sell me a service plan I explicitly told him I did not want. Once the technician got to work, the appointment got better. His actual work and application of the product both inside and outside of my house seemed well done, complete, and the technician seemed knowledgeable about specific "areas of concern" for different types of insects and small animals. Unfortunately towards the end of the appointment things went south again when it was time to do the attic. I was assured on the phone by the sales rep that my attic would be taken care of and there would be no issue in doing so. Well the technician refused to do it saying that since it was just beams and not flat boards he was not able to do it. This was never explained to me on the phone or even asked by the sales person. The attic was the largest area of concern for me and the main reason for hiring the exterminator, and it was the only area to not get treated.The appointment ended with the technician taking another 20 minutes trying to sell me a service plan I didn't want, then standing on my driveway for 5 more minutes just smoking a cigarette which he then felt the need to go into my garage without permission and throw it away in my trash can. Overall is was an unprofessional experience and I am disappointed that I did not seem to have this great experience that everyone else did.EDIT: I have updated my rating since the company was very quick to respond and handled the situation in a very professional and appropriate manner.

Staff at this establishment is Awesome! Customer service is above expectations there's nothing they won't do for you without hesitation. I don't believe the word no is part of those vocabulary. Every staff member that came out to my home were friendly, curtious and took care of my needs. My most recent staff member named Maghan is the best. Very knowledgeable and handled my needs with a smile. Glad she's part of the team. Way to go Go-Forth!

Reviews5 out of 5 stars from20 reviews Jaclyn B. Oct 22, 2016 Rodent Removal 5 out of 5 stars Verified review First Time Home Owner Has Uninvited House GuestsI have mice in the attic and the kitchen; occasional wood roaches and a cricket infestation in my outside storage unit. Chad initially came out and assessed the situation. He confirmed the crickets which I originally thought were spiders. They're the size of a quarter! I was so grossed out by everything that I asked for his technician Joe to come out as quickly as possible. He arrived 2 days later. Joe is fearless! And very thorough. He sprayed a large swath of bug killer around the perimeter of my home, took care of the crickets in the storage shed with a hand sprayer, and laid traps for the mice in my attic, kitchen and the storage unit that houses my hot water heater. The assured me that the bug spray is not harmful to humans or house pets. He figured out why I'm getting the wood roaches, and it's a problem that I will unfortunately have to live with. If I see any critters, I am to call and they will come out again, otherwise they spray every quarter. A technician will check the mouse traps in one month, and adjust the number of traps based on the results. Chad and Joe both appear to be knowledgeable about their craft, and are willing to go the extra mile to assist a home owner.
