Prevent Cockroaches from Invading Your Home?

Practicing adequate sanitation alongside vacuuming can help prevent the introduction. Cockroaches are attracted to moisture areas, so they will be attracted to the kitchens or the bathrooms. Also, check your homes for other areas of high moisture to eliminate pest issues like cockroaches.

American cockroaches will often enter a home or apartment in cardboard boxes or electrical appliances. Make sure to cover any breaks or gaps where cockroaches could enter. Be sure to tidy up any spills or food wrecks, and thoroughly check any materials brought inside the home since insect egg housings can be found inside furnishings, boxes, bags, and staple packs.

Outside be sure to eliminate decaying leaves, stop water holes, and cap channel pipes. Also, dispose of old boxes and papers, secure your garbage bin with a cover. Be sure to clean your kitchen counters, don’t leave pet food outside, and place work screens over windows, depletes, and vents.

Signs of an American Cockroach Infestation?

Cockroaches spotted during the day could be a sign of a large infestation. This is because Cockroaches, in general, like to forage at night or in the dark.

Cockroach excrement takes after espresso beans or dark pepper, while Larger insects produce tube-shaped droppings. If you have a large infestation, a solid, slick, or stale smelling scent might be available. Oval-molded egg housings can here, and there be found behind furnishings or between books. Be sure to check as many detailed areas as possible.

Should We Apply Pesticide for American Cockroaches?

A pesticide application by a professional is almost always required to eliminate the issue from a home or apartment. This is because the egg cycles will continue to hatch, and the problem could take months to resolve. Make sure you choose a professional company that guarantees the treatments; you will have the issue reoccurring month after month.

How Does EnviroPest Specifically Handle American Cockroaches?

EnviroPest is trained to manage American Cockroaches:

  • Inspection – We will inspect and treat the areas of infestation and the areas that are considered high-risk areas within a home—the more extensive and detailed the treatment, the more effective.
  • Prevention – Humidity should be reduced if possible in the high-risk areas and any building materials. Moisture should be removed from any site containing highly conductive areas that could create areas of harborage. We can help identify these areas with our clients as we walk through the property.
  • Guarantee – We are happy to check after some time on whether the problems have been resolved. Areas should be inspected regularly, considering this issue takes a while to occur and become visible. It also should be guaranteed by a good company after you treat the infestation.
