  • Is the landlord responsible for pest control?

    Whether you are a tenant or a landlord at a rental unit, you may wonder whether the landlord is obligated to take care of pest control needs that arise. A landlord needs to supply an environment without pests, but keep in mind that if you’re a tenant and you do not submit to sanitation standards, you could get into trouble. Also, sometimes the tenant needs to report pest issues in a prompt way or else he or she is fined or evicted.


  • Which pests are found in Los Angeles?

    Southern California contains multiple pests, such as termites, fleas and ants. For example, the cat flea can infest dogs and cats and it also feeds on human blood. Termites, as you may know, can mean bad news for your home or business if you don’t act. And red imported fire ants have venom that produces a burning feeling (and some people are allergic to their stings). It’s important to stay watchful and guarded against these pests and Western Exterminator can help you get rid of these creatures. Reach out to us today.


  • What is the most effective way to get rid of mice?

    If you have a mouse infestation at your Los Angeles home or business, the issue should be tackled as soon as possible. Trying to eliminate mice yourself is generally not a long-term solution and does not work as well as turning to a professional to combat the problem.

Eliminate cockroaches in Los Angeles

Unfortunately, cockroaches are common pest problem in the City of Angels and the surrounding areas. Like most residents of Los Angeles, there is a very good chance you have turned on a light in a room and seen a number of small insects scamper away. These tough insects are great at hiding, constantly looking for food, and breed so fast that they often create tremendous infestations very quickly.

Los Angeles is a large city with a large population. This means a large number of living conditions which can be conducive to cockroach infestations. Some of the most common Los Angeles cockroach species include:

  • American cockroach - a brown cockroach with long antenna and large wings folded across their back. They are among the larger known species of cockroach in North America. These insects also have one of the longer life cycles of any species of cockroach
  • German cockroach - a small species of cockroach that has become quite common in North America. They are usually tan to almost black in color. They have wings, and sometimes fly, but they do so very rarely. German cockroaches are common in areas where food is prepared, so they are common in kitchens in homes as well as restaurants, food processing plants, hotels and nursing homes.
  • Oriental cockroach - a cockroach that has now become quite common around the world. These are large insects that are generally black in color. They are flightless, despite having wings normally folded across their backs, and may appear a lot like species of beetle. This species of cockroach loves to hide.
  • Brown-banded cockroach - a small species of roach that is tan to light brown with two light-colored bands found across the wings and abdomen. Males of this species have wings which can sometimes cover the brown bands.

Cockroaches can be hard to spot and the saying goes if you see one roach, there are likely hundreds more hidden away somewhere. Some of the signs of a cockroach infestation include:

  • Droppings - cockroach droppings look a lot like coffee grounds and if there is a large infestation, these may appear on the ground near where they are hiding.
  • Eggs - oval shaped, roaches sometimes lay their egg oothecae behind furniture or other objects around the house.
  • Odors - cockroaches do not smell very nice. A full blown infestation is often accompanied by an unpleasant odor that resembles a mustiness or oil.
  • Live or dead insects - if you find dead cockroaches on the floor or turn on lights to see them scampering away, there’s a good chance you’re dealing with a cockroach infestation.

After seeing the signs of cockroaches, contact us to eliminate termites from your home or business.
