Our Cockroach Extermination Plan
Our experts take a proven approach to cockroach control:
Your technician will identify exactly what type of pest problem you have, the size of the problem, and where they’re coming from. In Boston, we see different types of cockroaches, and each one is treated a little differently.
Your technician will perform a thorough inspection to determine the level of cockroach activity and the extent of any damage. Structural issues such as moisture problems will need to be addressed to keep cockroaches from coming back.
GreenHow recommends different treatments based on your unique needs. Our recommendations are designed to fully eliminate the problem and may require more than one treatment.
After the final treatment, your technician will conduct a follow-up inspection to ensure the problem is eliminated. We also recommend ongoing maintenance and prevention to keep your property pest-free.

- Behind refrigerators and bookcases
- Inside cabinets
- Near showers and toilets
- Under beds and tables
- In crawlspaces and basements
- In sewers or drains
- Anywhere dark or where there’s food
- In plain sight
Types of Cockroaches We Eliminate
GreenHow’s cockroach pest control handles Boston’s most common cockroaches, including:
American cockroaches are among the largest household roaches. They’re reddish-brown in color and are common throughout Boston. Other names include the palmetto bug and water bug.
The most common cockroach species, the German cockroach has two dark parallel bands running down its back. It’s also called the croton bug.
This smaller species of cockroach is recognized by its two light-brown bands across its abdomen and wings. They are commonly found in kitchens and can reproduce quickly.
These dark-colored cockroaches live in damp places, such as sewers and basements. They’re known to infest homes and businesses and can be difficult to get rid of.
Why trust GreenHow with your Cockroach Removal?
Beginning cockroach removal at the first signs of intrusion is imperative. Cockroaches carry many diseases, fungi, viruses, and allergens that could impact your health. Cockroaches can also produce as many as 200-300 offspring per year, which can make cockroach removal more difficult the longer you wait.

Aside from seeing cockroaches, you might notice small droppings that look like pepper flakes, foul smells, shed skins, or brown smear marks where the walls meet the floors.
