Many people mistakenly believe that only “dirty” people get cockroaches, but this is a myth. Every home or commercial kitchen has the potential to have a cockroach problem.
Because cockroaches eat a wide range of food, including rotting garbage, it is believed that they spread a number of diseases to humans including gastroenteritis, salmonella, E. coli, staphylococcus and streptococcus (pneumonia), and several helminths (hookworm, pinworms, tapeworms). The cockroach can also harbor viruses such as the polio virus. Cockroaches also produce a powerful allergen that causes allergies and asthma.
Like the household fly, the cockroach will eat virtually anything ranging from food spills on a kitchen floor to fecal matter. Ingested bacteria can survive in the cockroach’s digestive system, sometimes for months or even years, and are passed in its droppings. Cockroaches will vomit and defecate on food and it is thought that disease may be transmitted to humans when humans eat food contaminated by cockroaches.
Contact us and we’ll thoroughly inspect your home, carefully interview you for eye witness statements, and immediately assess and address current pest infestations. we’ll then prepare you to prevent them from happening again in the future. If your home is under assault from roaches (most often German Cockroaches), our thorough process is the treatment you need. Sometimes the roach is what some people call “waterbugs”. Most often as is the case, these are actually Smoky Brown cockroaches that are living underneath the house along the perimeter of a pier & beam house and/or in the flowerbeds surrounding the house. The source is underneath and outside the home and their appearance inside your home is just symptoms. we’ll attack the problem at the source and rid you of the problem whether inside, outside, underneath or some combination of the three!
Q: “Should I try fogging first?”
A: Fogging is an airborne method of contact treatment that quickly dissipates so that the residual disappears, as well, in order for the environment to be safe to return to. And, because the fogged chemical doesn’t penetrate into cracks and crevices (this would require negative air pressure to draw it into the cracks and crevices) you'll only be killing roaches that are out in the open at the time you fog.
Most people find that they still have a huge roach problem after they’ve already spent a lot of money on foggers and could have better spent the money on our professional services in order to resolve the roach problem. We typically apply 4–5 different chemicals during our approach to resolving your roach problem.
