Waterbugs

You may know them as waterbugs or cockroaches. By any name you can’t miss these giant insects when you see them scurrying around on your kitchen or bathroom floors and countertops. That’s a surprise you don’t want to have when you turn on the lights. Bug Ivey can help you enjoy your home without these monsters creeping you out.

About Waterbugs

Waterbugs are American cockroaches. Smoky-brown in color, they can grow as long as 2.5 to 3 inches in length. They generally live outdoors. In the cooler weather, they may find their way into your home. They tend to be one-off pests unless they find their ideal conditions - warm, dark places. Utility closets with water heaters are the perfect habitat for them to grow, reproduce and thrive. These nocturnal scavengers hide during the day and go looking for food and water at night. Waterbugs can spread disease, but they are primarily nuisance pests.

At Bug Ivey, our experts understand the behavior of waterbugs and how to control them.

Treatment Information

Waterbug Treatment Information

Waterbugs have the ability to rapidly reproduce. We use a two-visit plan to strategically and effectively eliminate existing roaches and prevent any new ones from moving in.

  • Treatment 1:

    The first part of the service is to target adults and prevent them from reproducing. We perform a detailed inspection of areas throughout your home for suspected or present activity. We focus carefully on the locations roaches tend to congregate in, such as the kitchen, bathrooms and attics. After the inspection, your technician will begin a customized treatment of the areas with suspected or confirmed activity.
  • Treatment 2:

    Two weeks later, your technician will arrive and perform a second treatment. This allows us to monitor progress and address any remaining roaches. After your treatment has been completed, we will guarantee your home free from roaches for 30 days from the date of your second treatment. If you have any issues during your warranty period, let us know and we will send a technician at no cost to you.
