Want to Get Rid of Your Cockroaches Once and for All?

Have you ever wondered why no matter what you do, your cockroaches keep coming back? Eliminating a cockroach problem for good requires professional-grade cockroach control and expertise. Each cockroach species requires products and methods that are tailored to its unique biology. Landmark’s treatments are designed by science. We use the biology of each cockroach species to identify their hiding places and treat the problem at its source.

Our Science-Based Treatments Kills Hidden Cockroaches

Cockroaches hide in wall voids, and other void spaces. They may remain hidden for their whole lives, feeding on food that is provided to them by their colony mates. If you treat only the cockroaches that are out foraging, these hidden cockroaches keep multiplying in the wall voids and making new cockroaches. Our methods kill the cockroaches that are hiding in the walls.

Hidden roaches and unhatched eggs will reinfest buildings unless treatment continues until the entire population is exterminated. We continue to apply targeted treatments until all life stages are completely eradicated, even the cockroaches that are hiding in the walls.

Your Cockroaches Work for Us Now

Just like bees and ants, cockroaches are a social insect that share food with one another. To solve a cockroach problem, we use the biology of how cockroaches feed against them.

Female cockroaches spend most of their lives hidden away, guarding their eggs, out of reach of conventional treatments. They rely on other members of the colony to feed them. We use this important fact of cockroach biology to solve your cockroach problem. Our products are designed so that the colony members work to deliver the treatment to the cockroaches that are hidden away. Over time the colony is eliminated, resulting in a clean, cockroach-free home or business.

Over-the-Counter Cockroach Treatments Don’t Work

Over-the-counter cockroach products scatter the cockroaches, forcing them into hiding without killing the entire colony. Once the products wear off, the roaches come back out, and the problem is worse than before. Store-bought products lack residual action, so they can’t completely solve a cockroach problem. Because the colony remains, over time the cockroaches can develop resistance to the store-bought cockroach treatments, making the infestation harder to eliminate.

Expertise is necessary to properly eliminate a cockroach infestation. Effective cockroach control requires a species-specific approach. Places where the roaches are hiding must be identified and directly treated with professional-grade products that won’t cause the problem to spread and get worse.

Effective cockroach treatment takes skill. Call us to get it done right and get your life back.

Cockroaches pose risks to human health. We eliminate them at their source with a targeted, ecologically-minded approach.

Landmark’s technicians are specially trained to control cockroach infestations at their source. We first employ chemical-free measures, such as barriers, screens, sealants, door sweeps, insect traps, vacuuming, sanitation and the removal of food and harborage. The judicious use of pesticides is a measure of last resort to make sure cockroaches are perfectly controlled.

Landmark treats using targeted products tailored to attract cockroaches to our bait. Our modern techniques use research on the way cockroaches feed. The products we use to kill cockroaches are the mildest available, applied in the most targeted fashion, and used in the smallest effective dose.

Health Risks Posed by Cockroaches

Cockroaches pose numerous risks to human health. Pathogenic organisms are found on cockroaches and in their feces. Cockroach-related pathogens cause food poisoning, vomiting, diarrhea, dysentery, and nausea.

Cockroach excrement and shed skins contain allergens that can cause watery eyes, sneezing, and skin rashes. Allergens associated with cockroaches can worsen asthma and chronic lung diseases. Cockroaches have been found to be an exacerbating factor in some fatal asthma attacks.

Because cockroaches breed in, and walk across, filthy areas including sewers, toilets, garbage, and waste, they deposit bacteria and germs from these areas on any surfaces they walk across, including food preparation surfaces.


The most common infesting cockroach species in Illinois are American, German, and Oriental cockroaches. These fast moving insects thrive by using their flat bodies to conceal themselves in tight, dark spaces. These prolific breeders seek out food, moisture, heat, and dark places conducive to hiding and breeding, and access structures by moving along cracks and crevices, pipes chases, and conduits.

Different species of cockroaches differ in their behavior, habits, and biology. It is important to work with a Landmark professional who can assess the infestation by properly identifying the infesting species.

American Cockroach

The adult American cockroach is easily distinguished by its large size, large folded wings, and pale-colored border at the top of its head. Nymphs are gray-brown in color. American cockroaches can live for more than a year and in that time a single cockroach can produce over 1,400 young.

German Cockroach

The German cockroach is a prolific breeder and can appear in large numbers. The adult German cockroach is easily distinguished by two dark stripes on its head. A single adult female can produce over 350 young in her lifetime.

Oriental Cockroach

Sometimes referred to as a “waterbug,” this species of roach prefers a damp environment, often enters structures through sewer lines, and congregates in damp basements. The Oriental cockroach can produce well over 100 young in its lifetime.

Pest Control Powered by Science

Cockroaches differ in their behavior, habits, and biology and each species requires a different type of treatment.
