Although EcoTek specializes in termites and every type of pest control imaginable, nothing compares to the level of disgust when our customers describe a cockroach infestation. Cockroaches are notorious for infesting kitchens and ruining food stored in cabinets and pantries, plus roaches can be highly dangerous to those who have respiratory issues since they can trigger allergic reactions and worsen asthma. It’s important to call the cockroach exterminators at EcoTek for a free cockroach inspection at the first sign of roaches within your home or business since they can multiply rapidly.
There are thousands of different types of cockroaches throughout the United States, but in North Carolina we are most commonly called out to exterminate 2 variations of roaches that are found both indoors and outdoors:
The German cockroach
The German cockroach is most commonly what you’ll find thriving within your kitchen, and are what you’ll find scattering across the floor, the kitchen counters, and in your cabinets when the lights come on at night. They are the smallest roaches we deal with, and are normally about 1/2 inch in size. They are easily identified by 2 dark parallel lines that are located directly behind their head like the picture shown here. Just like the American cockroach, the German cockroach hates cold, but regardless of what time of year it is they will thrive and rapidly reproduce in your kitchen until there are thousands of them infesting every crack and crevice imaginable.
The American cockroach
Of the 2 variations of roaches we are faced with exterminating, American cockroaches are the largest and can grow as big as 1 1/2 inches in size. They are commonly known as Palmetto bugs, but are also known as water bugs since they prefer warm and moist areas such as laundry rooms, clothes hampers, areas around sinks and tubs, basements, crawl spaces, or just about anywhere that moisture or condensation can be found. During the warmer months they can be found mostly outside, but when the weather turns cold they will seek refuge within your home or business since they are intolerant to lower temperatures.
Free cockroach inspection and estimate
Once you see any cockroaches either inside or outside of your home or business, it’s important to call us immediately so we can come out and do a free roach inspection to determine what types of roaches you have, and the extent of the infestation. We’ll examine the areas where the cockroaches live and breed, plus we’ll look for signs of damage so you’ll know not only any costs for exterminating the cockroaches, but what might need to be aware of that should be repaired.
Cockroach extermination treatment
Our comprehensive treatment process for killing adult cockroaches and their larvae involves several types of extermination methods and insecticides. While most people might think that exterminating roaches is as simple as spraying areas where cockroaches live, it’s actually much more involved, and requires using baiting systems and insecticides that are designed to be the most effective for the type of pest we are eliminating. Since all of our pest control services come with satisfaction and money back guarantees, you can rest assured that once we have performed a thorough cockroach extermination treatment on your home or business to kill any and all cockroaches, then you won’t have to worry about them returning. If you do happen to see even one cockroach, call us immediately and we’ll come out to perform another treatment at no cost.

I had never had cockroaches in my house in 40 years. Suddenly I was overrun. Eco-tech came in and within two days I was back to normal. I’m not sure what they did and I don’t really care. It was not toxic and the bugs are gone!
