Cockroaches in Georgia & South Carolina
While there are hundreds of species of cockroaches in the world, and about 70 in the US, there are two types that cause the most common problems in Georgia and South Carolina: the “American cockroach” and the “German cockroach”.
The American cockroach, sometimes called a “waterbug” or "palmetto bug", is the largest species of common cockroach (about 1.5 – 2” long). German cockroaches are smaller (about 5/8” long), and are the most common source of serious roach infestations in the southeast United States.
Roaches are nocturnal—usually hiding in cracks, walls, and beneath cabinets and appliances during the day. They are very resilient, requiring little food and water to survive and reproduce. They generally prefer dark damp places like bathrooms, garages, and kitchens.
Cockroaches are disease carriers, and should be dealt with as soon as possible. If you’re seeing roaches big or small around the home or in your work environment, contact Compass to get a free inspection & estimate!

Scientific Integrated Pest Management Solutions
Integrated Pest Management Solutions (IPM) is an approach to control cockroaches and other pests that employs inspection, identification, and implementation of a strategy that provides the best common sense solution. Often physical, mechanical, biological, and educational methods are employed to achieve the results that are of the least human risk while effectively controlling unwanted pests.
Our IPM program focuses on three specific areas:
1) Inspecting for cockroaches or other pests
2) Identifying roaches & pests
3) Control by pest professionals
IPM bases its cockroach control recommendations on your unique needs. Our pest control professionals do not use a “one-size-fits-all” approach. Whether sealing cracks, removing a food or water source or, when necessary, employing traditional treatments, integrated pest management is about using best practice application methods to control cockroach problems.
How it works:
1) First, we evaluate the infestation and customize a treatment plan in order to avoid random pesticide application.
2) Next, we place pest monitors, when needed, in pest prone locations to accurately detect “hot-spots” of pest activity.
3) Finally, we apply a protective barrier to the outside of your home to avoid future problems. Our goal is to solve your pest problem while minimizing pesticide usage in and around your home.
Our #1 concern while ridding your home of unwanted pests common to South Carolina and Georgia like cockroaches and other pests is the health and safety of your family and pets.
