Cockroach Extermination

Would you ever choose a roommate that can survive solely off crumbs, glue, hair, grease, and dead bugs? A roommate that carries pathogenic bacteria like Salmonella? Of course not! However, when you notice cockroaches scurrying behind furniture or hanging out in the spare bedroom, you are doing just that.

Bacteria isn’t the only issue; cockroaches leave behind feces, saliva, eggs, and bodies that can be deadly to anyone living with a compromised immune system. These allergens linger for years after the cockroaches are removed. Quit letting these gross little bugs infect and infest your house. Boric acid powder is proven to help eliminate these pests. The boric acid sticks to the hair on the legs of these cockroaches. When they groom, they ingest the powder and die. Killing cockroaches is hard work that should be left to professionals. After all, cockroaches can live weeks without a head!

To prevent cockroaches in your home, simple sanitation is an absolute must. Cockroaches are attracted to areas that provide a food and water source. Because of their flat shape, they like to squeeze under appliances where crumbs can accumulate out of a homeowner’s sight. They can also squeeze in cracks in walls or hang out inside a kitchen cupboard. Here are some further steps to prevent cockroaches:
  • Vacuum thoroughly as often as possible
  • Vacuum and/or dust under all kitchen appliances and cabinets
  • Seal any gaps around doors or windows
  • Place a screen over exposed drain lines
  • Keep your home’s outdoor perimeter clear of thick, dead plants. This is an ideal living and breeding environment for cockroaches and other pests.
There are many different types of cockroaches varying in size and color. When identifying a cockroach, look for an oval-shaped body, six legs, and wings. Look quickly, cockroaches sprint at speeds of 80 centimeters per second!
