How to get rid of German Roaches in Drain Pipes?

I see german roach nymph in my drain pipes. It's never been a problem before but it seems to be getting worse. How do I fix this problem. Thanks!

Answer:

It is rare that you would ever have roaches truly coming from your drain pipes. Most of the time when people see roaches coming out of their drain, it is only ones that have crawled down into it from your sink first and are then re-emerging. Unless you have a cracked pipe either in your home or somewhere in the sewage line for the city that leads into your home, the source is elsewhere. The best way to treat for roaches is to attack it full on before it becomes a huge infestation as they can reproduce quickly. We suggest using our Roach Control Kit #2 as this has everything you will need to completely eliminate all of the roache that are there as quickly as possible. The products in the kit provide you with two different poisons that they will take back to the colony you dont see to eliminate them at the source, as well as a birth control that will halt the growth of the colony until they die from the other products. You can also review our guide on How To Get Rid of German Roaches for tons of helpful information for controlling this species effectively. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
