Cockroaches may be the most common pest to homeowners, business owners, restaurants, hotels and more. They are extremely adaptable insects, typically surviving in conditions where other insects cannot. As a result of their adaptable nature, they are one of the more difficult pests to locate, exterminate and keep away. While over the counter roach treatments have improved over the years, they are not necessarily effective, as taking care of a few does not eliminate the larger problem.
Roaches have one of the quickest insect reproduction cycles in the USA, and an infestation can occur in a short a amount of time. They make themselves at home in houses, where they have a warm and sheltered place to live year round. They flock to kitchens, areas with crumbs (like a pantry), garbage areas that aren’t tended to, vents and sewers. They’re very intelligent insects and can easily hide a large population during the day before scuttling around at night. They can easily enter a home through cracks, open windows, under doorways, up drain pipes and on boxes.
Roaches are a health hazard, carrying bacteria on their bodies that can be transmitted to humans. Their skins, roach corpses, droppings and nests can strike up a mess of health problems, including allergic reactions and different forms of gastroenteritis, including food poisoning, dysentery and diarrhea. Taking matters into your own hands seems like an easy enough method, but without the proper professional equipment, you may aggravate roaches to rapidly repopulate. Contacting a professional cockroach exterminator is your best line of defense, and the experts at Solidified Pest Control have the technology, products and know-how to rid roaches from your home or business.
