Cockroaches Facts & Treatment Options

Considered to be one of the most adaptable and successful animals on the planet, cockroaches have been around for thousands of years. These pests carry allergens and microbes that are dangerous to humans. They love small, tight spaces, and will often infest materials stored on the side of a home or building. The chemical trails they leave in their feces transmit bacteria onto surfaces and attract more cockroaches to the area.

Frequently Asked Questions

Cockroaches are considered a common household pest and can pose health risks. They enter homes or buildings by coming in through cracks or crevices in walls, floors, or foundations. They can also be brought in through infested items such as cardboard boxes, grocery bags, or secondhand furniture. It’s important to keep your living space clean and clutter-free, seal up any entry points, and address any infestations promptly to prevent them from multiplying.

There are several ways to control cockroaches, but the most effective approach may vary depending on the severity of the infestation and the type of cockroach. Here are some methods that can help control cockroaches:

  • Sanitation: Keeping your living space clean and free of clutter can help eliminate food and water sources for cockroaches, making it less hospitable for them.
  • Exclusion: Sealing up entry points such as cracks and crevices, gaps around doors and windows, and utility lines can help prevent cockroaches from entering your living space.
  • Baits: Cockroach baits contain poison that the insects will eat and take back to their nest, where it can eliminate the entire population over time. Baits are generally considered to be effective and safe for use in homes.
  • Pesticides: Pesticides can be used to kill cockroaches directly, but they can be toxic to humans and pets if not used properly. It’s important to follow the instructions carefully and use caution when applying pesticides.
  • Professional pest control: If the infestation is severe or if the DIY methods are not effective, it’s best to consult a professional pest control company like APC. We can help identify the type of cockroach and develop a customized plan for eradication.
