Cockroaches are a common pest and quite disgusting. They feed on dead and decaying things, including dead animals. They are one of the last things that you want in your kitchen, and keeping your house clean has little to do with whether or not there are cockroaches in your home.
They Are On the Move
Male cockroaches are often on the move looking for mates. They will infest a home during that roaming process looking for food, water, and female cockroaches. Even in a clean house, you may find a small population of cockroaches. It does not take much to feed a cockroach nor to attract them. Females may also roam trying to find an ideal source of food and a place where she can lay eggs. You can prevent cockroach infestation by keeping food items sealed and moving the garbage and recycling containers away from the house. Small bits of spoiled food or soda residue in the recycling can be enough to attract cockroaches and even ants.
Prevention is Key
If your neighbor’s house is a sty, they may attract cockroaches that roam to your home. Preventing cockroaches from getting into the house is critical. We use a barrier pest solution that kills cockroaches on contact and a baiting program to destroy any that might be inside already. If you see cockroaches or silverfish, give us a call. We have the tools, experience, and knowledge to destroy cockroach infestations.
We provide comprehensive pest control services to the Bryan and College Station Communities. We offer emergency pest control service calls for those massive infestations and pest emergencies, such as snake removal. We also provide ongoing monthly service that addresses pest control as a preventative service. Both types of service calls are affordable and help to keep you and your home pest-free.
