Cockroaches can usually be seen in kitchens (near dishwashers, stoves, and sinks) and in bathrooms of homes. These pests normally prefer moist environments with warmer temperatures. Cockroaches are mostly active at night, when they are searching for food, water, and mates. During the day they hide in cracks and crevices and other dark areas that provide a preferred environment. Their wide, flat bodies allow them to move in and out of cracks and narrow openings with ease. They may be seen during the day,especially if there is a large population, or if there is some other issue, such as a lack of food, water or an extermination chemical is applied. The insects are scavengers and will feed on a wide variety of foods. They prefer starches, sweets, grease, and meat products. In many areas, garbage is a principal food source.
Cockroaches do spread bacteria, protozoans, and viruses. Different forms of gastroenteritis appear to be the primary illness caused by cockroaches. Cockroach droppings and cast skins also contain a number of allergens which some people are allergic to; some physical reaction include skin rashes, watery eyes,sneezing, congestion, and asthma.
Why Choose Structural Pest
To control any infestation of cockroaches, Structural Pest will do a thorough inspection. A cockroach trapping is sometimes necessary to determine the level of an infestation. A key factor in prevention is sanitation. Cleaning up all spilled foods and removing dirty dishes overnight. Store food items such as cereal, crackers, cookies, flour, sugar, and bread in airtight sealed containers. Empty garbage every night into a sturdy container with a tightly lid.
Baiting is an effective method to control or eliminate cockroaches. Insecticidal dusts like boric acid, silica aerogel, and diatomaceous can provide additional control. The use of residual insecticidal sprays or aerosol foggers within a structure is of little value in controlling cockroaches. In fact, these applications may disperse the cockroaches making complete elimination difficult and lengthy. Structural Pest has a professionally trained technician that use all the current techniques and procedures to eliminate this pest and give you peace of mind.
