Strong and Smart

Cockroaches are known to be some of the resilient pests. They can survive their travel through the gutter, trashcans and any type of weather. Once these pests enter your home beware of the filth that is left on their legs. Cockroaches will walk all over your kitchen counter and contaminate everything they touch. They are nocturnal creatures so it’s very rare that you will ever see them. If you see them during the day that is a sign of overcrowding, therefore an infestation. They are extremely rapid reproducers so if you know you have a problem be sure to take care of it right away. These creepy crawlers are always looking for a warm place to lay their eggs, some food and water sources.

Here at Green Pest Services, we see the company as a huge family. The company owners, the employees and our clients all make up the family. The pests on the other hand, they want to destroy all that.

If you’ve lived in a city, you have probably come across cockroaches in all their shapes and sizes. They are the most common pest anywhere you go in the world. With thousands of species of cockroaches out there, it is not a surprise they are found anywhere and everywhere in the world. There are about 30 different species of cockroaches that we have to interact with in the cities. They just love living in and around our habitations.

Just the sight of a cockroach can be one of the most unsettling things. They’re not just bad to look at; they are also carriers of a lot of diseases. This is why you need to get rid of them and for good. You will find a lot of DIY articles on the Internet telling you how you can get rid of them for good. We’re asking you to reconsider. DIY methods are a waste of time and money for no result.

Getting professional help is paramount. Controlling a cockroach infestation in your home is important. They can spread disease inside your home and they can even cost businesses their reputation. Imagine having cockroaches inside a kitchen’s restaurant. No one would want to eat there.

Let’s move on to some facts about cockroach infestation control.

Know Your Enemy

First things first, you need to identify what you’re dealing with. Cockroaches are insects which can be over 2 inches long in length. They have six legs, a couple of antennae and some of them even have wings, which they can use to fly. That’s a scary thought!

How Did You Get Cockroach Infestation?

A lot of people tend to think that it’s probably the housekeeper’s fault that their home has a cockroach infestation. The thing is, keeping the house clean is nothing more than a preventative measure. It doesn’t guarantee that these pestilent creatures won’t invade the sanctity of your home.

There are plenty of food sources for cockroaches in a house. The kitchen, the floors, the bathrooms – all of them provide excellent food sources for them. That and the fact that there are plenty of places for them to hide, provides breeding grounds aplenty for cockroaches. They can come in from anywhere. A lot of them come into the house through drains and sewer pipes. That’s something you cannot really control.

Exactly How Serious is a Cockroach Infestation?

In one word: Very. While cockroaches happen to be the most common pest, they are also the most stubborn problem. If you have a cockroach infestation in your home, it is one of the toughest things to deal with. They have plenty of places to hide, there’s abundant food for them and they breed faster than rabbits.

The situation gets worse, as we get into the diseases they carry. Cockroaches are known to carry the E. Coli and Salmonella bacteria. This means you cannot ignore them because these diseases are deadly. Long term exposure to cockroach feces in your home can even lead to asthmatic problems and trigger severe allergic reactions.

Some Cockroach Facts

In the animal kingdom, cockroaches belong to Phylum Anthropoda, Class Insecta and Order Blattaria. The species which make their way into human habitation are considered pests. Not all of them are pests though. There are some species of cockroaches that serve as a vital part of the natural ecosystem. They help to decay organic matter.

The pest cockroaches are the most problematic ones because they can carry various diseases. The fact that they’re in the kitchens and bathrooms means they increase the risk of us getting infected by those diseases.

Cockroaches also emit certain sounds and they leave an unpleasant odor, which can be smelled if the infestation is bad.

Cockroaches can destroy the sanctity of your home. This is a war that you want to win and to do that, you need all the help you can get. In order to win, you need to understand some things about them:

  • Ideal Environment: The home is the best place for a cockroach. There is place to breed, plenty of food and places to hide.
  • Reproduction: They reproduce very fast. For every cockroach you see, there are plenty more hidden behind walls and in crevices.
  • Entry: There are several ways in which they gain entry into your home. Cracks, crevices, sewer drains, window – anywhere they can find space, they will get in.
  • DIY Ineffectiveness: Do-it-yourself methods can only be effective if you can find the pests. Cockroaches are better at hiding than you are at finding them. That means all those over-the-counter pesticides are nothing more than a temporary measure.
