Roaches are typically introduced to homes by way of groceries, boxes, and clothing, or they can enter through the crevices around the perimeter of your home. Once inside a home or business, cockroaches will reproduce quickly, taking advantage of the abundant nesting sites and sources of warmth or food found indoors. They are excellent at hiding their eggs and remaining out of sight. Most over the counter products have no effect on roach eggs, nor are most consumers knowledgeable enough or adequately equipped to eliminate a roach infestation.
The first step to combating a roach infestation is a thorough inspection. An Extermco Pest Control professional will determine what, exactly, is attracting your roaches and will then locate the extent of the roaches’ hiding places and nests. Your professional will implement a treatment plan tailored to your situation and discuss ways in which you can reduce or eliminate common causes of roach infestations. Whether it’s eliminating roaches from your kitchen or getting rid of roaches in a storage area or commercial building, Extermco can get it done.
Facts about roaches
Roaches are tough
On the television show Mythbusters, the popular myth that cockroaches would inherit the Earth after a nuclear war was found to be “plausible.”
If you see one, you have a serious problem
Roaches are both nocturnal and shy. If you see a roach during the day, it means that the roach population in your home is so overcrowded that some roaches are being forced out into the open.
They contribute to asthma and allergies
Roaches are prodigious shedders of their skin as well as frequent leavers of droppings, both of which have been proven to aggravate allergies and asthma in people and pets.
