Cockroach Control - Controlling Roaches
Contrary to popular belief, a roach infestation is not necessarily an indication of poor hygiene. However, an untidy environment will make cockroach control more difficult, so keep your house clean, well organized, and in good repair. This environment will discourage roaches on the hunt for food and make them easier to spot when they emerge from concealment. Fill in cracks in walls and flooring and secure any loose trim against the wall. Dishes should be washed promptly, food stored in tightly sealed containers, working surfaces kept clean, and all scraps and crumbs cleared up. Put trash in containers with tight lids with the bags properly sealed when moved outside to help with roach control.
Cockroaches are extremely difficult to get rid of once they have infested an area. You may be able to control roaches in the immediate area using store-bought treatments, but many more roaches are hidden from view, reproducing and attracting more pests to the location. Popular roach control remedies such as bait stations, gels and boric acid powder are toxic to roaches, but do not address the infestation as a whole and they are dangerous to humans and family pets. Cockroach extermination is best left to professional pest management companies. No single cockroach extermination method used alone is effective in roach control. Cockroach extermination has greatly evolved over the years. Pest control companies are now trained and keep up to date on a variety of available methods and applications used to kill roaches. A technician will conduct a free inspection, create a treatment plan, schedule follow up visits, and provide specific preventative measures. Using an experienced roach exterminator will ensure that you and your family are safe from allergies, illness and future infestations.
