Why do you need cockroach pest control?

Cockroaches are probably one of the most common insects that you run across in your home and on your property. They usually attracted to any available foods in your property and will eat anything to survive.

It is often easier to spot signs of a problem in your property rather than an actual live cockroach. As nocturnal creatures, cockroaches usually hide out of sight during the day and become more active in their search for food at night.

As cockroach infestation would be a problem for everyone, check out the three reasons why you need pest control to protect against cockroaches at your property.

1. Cockroaches can pose a serious threat to health risk

Cockroaches are synonymous with dirt, filth, and poor hygiene. Their feeding and nesting habits mean they can accumulate a range of pathogenic organisms which they transmit to food and any other surfaces where they feed and crawl.

The common bacteria transmitted by cockroaches are:

  • Salmonella
  • Escherichia Coli
  • Listeria monocytogenes

On the other hand, cockroach’s saliva, faeces and shedding body parts can also trigger both asthma and allergies.

2. Home remedies are no longer work for you

From baking soda to coffee grounds, these are one of the most popular home remedies that many people believe will effectively repel cockroaches at home.

In some cases, natural home remedies or DIY products may be effective in getting rid of smaller cockroach problems. But it can be difficult to reach all cockroach hiding places with these solutions, leaving enough of a population to increase the risk of continual breeding and more cockroaches.

3. A cockroach infestation can quickly get out of control

Cockroaches breed very fast and a small infestation can quickly become a large-scale infestation. This makes prompt action at the first signs of activity critical to enable fast and effective control.

In addition, getting rid of cockroaches can be even trickier than ever, because the two most common cockroach species which commonly found in Indonesia (German and American cockroaches) are eliminated using different techniques.

We recommend that you get professional cockroach pest control if you spot signs of cockroaches in your home because:

  1. A deep understanding of the habits of each cockroach species to develop an effective cockroach control program for your property
  2. Specialist services can guarantee a long-term solution and reduce the risk of a re-infestation through professional prevention methods
  3. Long-term support through follow up visits (if they are needed) to re-treat the identified hiding spots at an interval that coincides with the hatching time of the cockroach egg cases (oothecae)
