We have been with Bulwark Exterminating now for several years including a few years while living in Las Vegas, NV. We now live in Pahrump, NV and the service continues to be great. We have not had any problems with pests during the time with Bulwark. Adding to the great service and an excellent pest control plan is the expertise of Ryan Peck who is our service technician here in Pahrump. He is always courteous and very professional. He is consistent and cares about the quality of service provided. If I have a question he has the answers. So, thanks for the many years of great service and please pass along my heartfelt thanks to Ryan for a job well done.‎

What Do Brown Banded Cockroaches Do?

This roach species is found primarily indoors, where it may be as common in dry areas of the structure as it is in the kitchen or bathrooms.

How Do Brown Banded Cockroaches Reproduce?

Females stick their light brown egg capsules to a hidden surface such as closet corners, behind drawers, within corrugated cardboard, or behind objects on the wall. Each egg capsule contains an average of 15 eggs, and development from egg to mature adult takes about six months. Because of the manner of hiding the egg capsules on materials, this species is easily relocated to new habitats.
