NYC Roach Exterminator | Cockroach Control in Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens
Our NYC Cockroach Control Approach
Acme Exterminating is an NYC cockroach exterminator offering roach control services to Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens. They do this by using an Integrated Pest Management (or IPM) approach that integrates a wide range of techniques for roach removal and control. Through the combination of insecticides to the use of mechanical, biological, and environmental methods, Acme will stop at nothing to attain a cockroach free environment. IPM relies greatly on careful inspection and observation to identify sources of infestations, elimination of cockroach harborages through good sanitary practices, and identifying site specific application of control measures. We will work aggressively to help you eliminate conditions which may be conducive to roaches on your NYC commercial or residential property. The alternatives to toxic chemicals require a greater commitment to long term preventive management strategies before emergencies arise.
