Cockroaches are widely distributed throughout the United States, with a higher density in Midwestern regions such as in Saint Charles and Saint Louis counties. There are a dozen different types of cockroaches, each with characteristic behavior. Knowing the type of cockroach is the key to effective elimination.
These insects are extremely invasive and often gain entrance to buildings by hiding in items being brought into the home or structure. They also find ways in through cracks, crevices, sewers, and drains. When cockroaches are present, they are relentless, and excellent at concealment. You could have a large infestation before you even realize any cockroaches are in your home. If you see one, there could be thousands in hiding!
Professional service is the only way to thoroughly get rid of cockroaches. DIY solutions include ensuring you have a sanitation and garbage disposal strategy that is less attractive and accessible to cockroaches. This includes:
- Garbage cans should be hard to penetrate and ideally stored away from the house.
- Debris should be properly disposed of, particularly anything found around the foundation of the property.
- Find and seal obvious points of entry into your house. Our technicians will find the more difficult areas because we know where to look.
- Call us if you have repeated sightings of cockroaches in your home or commercial facility.
- It is helpful if you place glue traps if you notice cockroach traffic. This will help us identify the type so we can tailor our pest control solution to your specific problem.
