How to Get Rid of Roaches
March 29, 2021
Roaches are a pest nuisance that no homeowner wants to deal with. There are several ways roaches make their way into your home. Excessive garbage build-up around your property is one of the leading causes. Cockroaches are attracted to food and sources of shelter. Large garbage piles provide precisely that. Crumbs scattered around your house is another standard variable that attracts roaches. High moisture in specific areas of your home can attract roaches also. Those are only some of the potential causes for a roach infestation in your home.
Regardless of why roaches are in your home, Pest Friends can help you. We equip our roach removal and remediation specialists with cutting-edge tools so they can handle any pest infestation problem you have.
Failing to handle a roach infestation on your property correctly can result in significant health risks to your family and loved ones. That’s why it is so crucial to contact us as soon as you notice an issue. The following is a list of tell-tale signs to look out for if you suspect you may have a roach infestation:
- Cockroach Droppings
- Unpleasant Odors – Strong oily or musty odor may be present
- Cockroach Egg Cases
- Cockroach Seen During the Day – Roaches are nocturnal and tend to prefer dark, moist places to hide and breed in, so seeing one during the day is rare and could be a sign of an infestation.
Our Approach To Roach Infestations
Before starting the roach removal process, our team will conduct a thorough inspection of your home. This enables us to identify the problem areas in your home so we can use the most effective method. Once the review is complete, we’ll begin the pest remediation process.
We Evaluate How Bad Your Cockroach Situation Is
Based on the severity of your cockroach infestation, our team will tailor the extermination process to best suit your needs. We use a combination of concentrates, acid, and traps based on the issue. So all of these pest control measures begin working nearly immediately.
But keep in mind, your home may require more than one treatment for you to see lasting results. In that case, you’ll need to contact us as soon as possible after your first treatment.
Eco-Friendly Cockroach Treatment
Also, our team uses eco-friendly roach mediation products that are safe for humans and pets. To avoid hiring a roach extermination specialist, you can use several preventive methods.
Some of the most effective techniques for reducing the odds of roaches invading your home include:
- Store your food properly in containers
- Clean your floors regularly
- Clean spills and crumbs immediately
- Always take your garbage out regularly
- Wash and store your dishes after every meal
- Patch up any holes or cracks in flooring and walls
- Promptly repair any water leakage around the home (i.e. from refrigerator, sink, roof, etc.)
- Don’t leave piles of cardboard or newspaper lying around on the floor; dispose of them promptly after use
