Of all pests that make their way into our homes and offices, cockroaches are some of the most resilient as well as abundant. Less than welcome, they can be difficult to control if left unattended as they breed frequently and in multiple numbers. In fact, they are the only species to have survived the extinction that took place when the dinosaurs roamed the Earth. Particularly unpleasant, the creatures come in many different species and are rife all across the globe. They are in fact a plague in some parts of the world especially tropical countries as the weather is conducive to their survival. With the ability to go for long periods of time without sustenance, cockroaches need special attention to eradicate.
As with any living thing on Earth, cockroaches come in many different varieties. Measuring on average upto two inches, some are stocky whilst others are lean, and some (unfortunately) have the ability to fly. This makes it especially difficult to get rid of them if they get in, as catching them is no easy feat. As they also are repulsive to people, approaching one too close is not a happy idea. Like rats and mice, cockroaches too are unhygienic and carry a lot of diseases especially if they are those found in houses and buildings as they reside in sewers and pipelines. They are also attracted to food, and therefore a major problem to restaurants who have to implement measures for cockroach pest control from time to time.
CALL THE CONTROLLER
Given how tough they are, one of the most effective methods usually jumped on immediately by many is calling in the controller. Potent chemicals are used on them, and they will also provide you with information on how to keep them away such as tips on food storage, clean drains and sinks. If you are able to identify it, you will be able to find out where they hide, as they are able to scuttle off at top speed making it difficult to locate them again.
Another aspect that will help you, is to inspect all entrances. While some cockroaches make their way up your drainpipe, others choose to take the front door. Some others also reside in cracks and crevices that may about or between loose floorboards. A pest controllers will be able to help you in sealing these spaces so there is no room for this to happen. You can also put bait to lure them out. Inspect your home thoroughly, as missing even one is enough to bring on the whole problem again making your efforts at cockroach control.
Frankly speaking, rodents and cockroaches are mainly attracted to messy, unclean environments. There is no use in hiring controllers, spending money and your time if your home is not hygienic. Garbage should be disposed of properly, as well as plenty of sunlight that is needed in your home. They thrive in dark, cool places and will always rush to such places. If you have two weeks old pizza and wedges lying around for example, there itself lies your problem. Be vigilant about cleanliness.
