How do you kill American cockroaches?

The American cockroach, Periplaneta americana, is the largest of the common cockroaches, measuring on average 4 cm in length.

Tips for eliminating American cockroaches:

  1. Clean debris around the exterior of the house. 
  2. Seal (caulk) any possible entry points into the house. Entry points include sewer pipes and uncaulked gaps around any opening into the ground or exterior.
  3. Remove organic material such as rotting leaves and mulch, and limit the moist areas in and around the house.
