more food and water.
German cockroaches want to live in dark protected areas of your
building. This means behind the baseboards, behind your walls,
under refrigerators and stoves, behind loose wallpaper, in cracks and
crevices in the floors, doors and walls, etc. These pets hide
during the day and come out at night when the room is dark in
order to find food and water.
more eggs in these dark, hidden places. Those eggs
hatch over a series of months to produce small cockroaches that will
grow to lay more eggs in those dark, hidden places.

of your building to kill the cockroaches where they live. It is

will come into contact with the pesticide and either die
inside the walls or try to get into the center of the room.

and smaller cockroaches may be seen. As these come into contact
with the long-term pesticides and baits that Cole Home Maintenance has
sprayed, they too will die. This will continue to happen for
months as the eggs continue to hatch from the eggs until the eggs are
As new cockroaches are brought into the building from food shipments
and cardboard boxes, on people's clothing, traveling from one apartment
to another, from one store to another, they will find that they cannot
hide behind the baseboards and walls. They will continue to look
for new places to hide. As they look for shelter behind
baseboards and inside walls, they find the pesticides and die.
Many exterminator companies only use a pesticide that lasts either
hours or at most a few days. They don't spend the time necessary
to spray all the locations where cockroaches live and don't want to
spend the money to use the more expensive pesticides and baits.
The result is that they never get rid of those cockroaches.
MAINTENANCE sprays the pesticides for the immediate
killing of these pests and then applies a long term (2 month)
pesticide to continue killing them long after the liquid spray

(Federal law requires that pesticides are manufactured to only last a
few months in order to protect the environment)
