How does pest control get rid of roaches?

If you can't get rid of roaches yourself, hire a pest control company to fight the war for you. Exterminators typically spray your house with Cynoff WP (keep it away from aquariums), set bait stations, and return until the roaches don't.

Also question is, how long does it take for an exterminator to get rid of roaches?

Generally speaking, most infestations take about two weeks to terminate. A heavy infestation may take up to eight weeks. These timelines are of course for professional exterminators. DIY cockroach removal will take much longer if at all it is successful.

Also, why do I see more roaches after pest control?

It's common to see roaches after an extermination. Do not spray or use a bug bomb in the area! This can interfere with the exterminator's treatment and cause any remaining roaches to scatter away from the bomb, possibly causing an infestation in areas of your home where roaches were not previously seen.

How long does it take for roaches to infest a house?

Once they gain access to a home, roaches can reproduce quickly. A single pair of roaches can produce up to 400,000 descendants in a year, under optimal conditions. When you consider that most roaches develop into adults in under 35 days, you realize it doesn't take long for a home to be infested.
