Every visit = dozens upon dozens of American Cockroaches being caught on our insect monitors. Dozens more seen alive in the basement and boiler room. Tenants in the lower level floors were seeing them in their apartments. Treatment was suppression not elimination of the issue. It was like a band aid on a bullet wound! We told the property management firm that we must find the source! We said with absolute confidence that it was under the slab. Sure enough the slab was jack-hammered and PVC pipes were found broken and uncapped. In fact these pipes need to be lead not plastic! These were pipes leading to the water system of the city so roaches had a direct run from the city water system in the streets directly into the apartment building!
