Expert Pest Solutions has effectively dealt with pest control roaches for years. If you’re like most people, at the first sign of roaches in your home or place of business, you cringe with dread. Cockroaches are nasty business. They smell bad, they are everywhere you look, they get into food, they transmit bacteria. That’s right, roaches transmit disease-causing organisms such as Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, hepatitis virus, coliform bacteria, and have been implicated in the spread of typhoid and dysentery. They are a source of allergens and cause risk for asthma, especially in young children. And pest control roaches is extremely important for a food-service business because they contaminate food and surfaces used to prepare food. When roaches are found in your business, you risk immediate loss of customers and employees, damage to food and water sources, real health risks and temporary or permanent closure, depending on the severity of the infestation.
Roaches can gain entrance to your home or business in containers of food items, or come in through small cracks in the walls and roof and laundry vents. They have also been known to be transmitted in flea-market purchases and used appliances. They can come in from the outdoors, traveling up through the plumbing and sewer drains. Roaches prefer nesting in moist, dark places, usually close to a food source where they can feed at night, but have been known to feed and roam around at all hours of the day or night, especially when the infestation is a really large one. If you see cockroaches every day, if you see the feces they leave around and smell the offensive odor; if you see their dead bodies, or the egg cases and cast off skin, there is no doubt that you have a roach infestation. The best defense for prevention of pest control roaches is to keep them out in the first place – and one of the most effective ways to do that is by keeping the kitchen and garbage areas clean. Where large infestations are involved, cleaning alone may not entirely solve the problem.
A roach population grows by the thousands in a short time so the pest control of roaches is hard to achieve without professional intervention. The use of sprays and pesticides bought over-the-counter can effect temporary relief but does not result in complete and lasting extermination. The German cockroach population, for example, which is the most common species in this area of the country, has developed resistance to most off-the-shelf chemicals which make do-it-yourself pest control roaches mostly ineffective.
Effective pest control roaches requires a thorough extermination of your home or business, and taking necessary steps to prevent their return. Roaches are survival experts and they thrive on nasty conditions. Most do-it-yourself pest control roaches treatments do not work, and that is why professional treatments are the most effective solution available to both homes and businesses. Expert Pest Solutions offers preventive treatments to protect your business from infestation. Our ongoing pest management service discreetly exterminates the pest control roaches problem you have now and helps prevent future infestation.
