DIY Solutions Are Not The Answer

Frequently Asked Questions

How did we get a German cockroach infestation?

German cockroaches are well-known indoor cockroaches with a distribution that is world-wide. Smaller than other types of cockroaches, the pests can hide in small spaces and hitch rides in bags, boxes, and many other infested items that are brought inside the home. In multi-unit apartment buildings, they can easily move between units, using the shared plumbing and pipes as a highway.

What Attracts Them?

One of the most common sources of problems with German cockroaches are used items like furniture and luggage. Pre-owned electronics are also hiding places for the pests, which gravitate towards these warm devices. Additionally, areas where food debris is left around will fulfill the needs that the cockroaches have for food, water, and protection, such as near: garbage and containers, kitchen cabinets, and under sinks.

What are the signs of a German cockroach infestation?


German cockroach droppings may appear as small, dark, “pepper-like” material left on countertops or in drawers. Fecal staining may appear as dark spots or smears:

  • Along the tops of doors.

  • Around small cracks and openings into walls.

  • In the corners of a room.

Egg Capsules

Since German cockroach females carries their egg case until 1 to 2 days before depositing it, empty egg cases may be found in areas that the females frequent.


German cockroaches are also known to secrete a number of odorous compounds. When populations are present in large numbers, it may be possible to detect a mild, or what some have reported as a “musty” odor.

Are German cockroaches a threat to my health and home?

German cockroaches spread filth in homes, contaminating food and utensils. Pathogens range from bacteria that causes food poisoning and dysentery to allergens that result in rashes and asthma attacks. Recent studies have also indicated that in larger metropolitan areas, the development of asthma in children can be directly linked to the presence of the pest.

Rapid Infestation

These cockroaches lay 40 eggs at a time, which mature in about two months. Because they reproduce rapidly, infestations quickly become severe. German cockroaches are hardy and fast and have few natural predators inside human habitats. For these reasons, their populations tend to grow rapidly and can be hard to get rid of, often requiring professional treatment.

Is there a difference between German and American cockroaches?

German Cockroaches

  • German cockroaches are one the most common species of cockroaches in Louisiana.
  • Theses roaches measure 13 to 16 mm long and are pale brown in color, with two dark-brown stripes behind the head.
  • These insects typically live up to 12 months and produce more eggs than other species.

She is very thorough inside and out...
We recently started using Arrow for Quarterly pest/bug prevention on our new construction home. Both on the initial visit and today's quarterly Krista has been awesome. She took the time to answer all our questions and let us know things to watch for in a new home. She is very thorough inside and out and we immediately saw a decrease in outside bugs. I highly recommend Krista and Arrow for your pest control needs.

Thorough, professional, courteous...
Roman by far is the best tech that has provided my termite service thus far. He was very thorough, professional, courteous and paid attention to detail. He communicated well all findings. He is a truly an asset to Arrow Termite and Pest Control. If at all possible, I would like to request him for services in the future.

Amazing service...
Amazing service! Aaron came out and was quick, and super friendly, along with Wesley the original guy that came out to do the quote. He was super honest and up front about what could be done on our end to save money and then their end. I would highly recommend them!

-Google Review, Samantha S

I am pleased with their response...
I called because I suddenly had all kinds of miscellaneous bugs in my home. I called, scheduled an inspection and had service all in the same week. Bugs are gone (or dying! ) and I am pleased with their response, service and knowledge about these bugs in my area. Call them!

-Google Review, K Weetkins

Great Service...
Great service, usually the same people spraying the house, and they actually answer their own phone calls and there is no automated service to deal with.
