COCKROACH PEST CONTROL

cockroach pest control

Cockroaches (Phylum Arthropoda) are the most notorious insect when it comes to requiring cockroach pest control services. Though the cockroach is hardly an aggressive insect, their ability to infest and consume resources is cause enough for their immediate removal once a cockroach has been detected.

COCKROACH CLASSIFICATIONS

Cockroaches come in many shapes and sizes. There are over 3,500 cockroach species though not all make a habit of being a nuisance. The biggest offenders being the American, Australian, German and Oriental cockroach.

COCKROACH BEHAVIOR 

Unfortunately for us humans, cockroaches are very adept at surviving even the most harsh conditions and they’re incredibly intuitive at group survival, after all the cockroach species has been around for tens of millions of years.

A single cockroach can leave behind a chemical trail, similar to ants, which indicates possible food, water and shelter for other cockroaches meaning a single cockroach can be the cause of an entire infestation. Their chem trails are breeding grounds for nasty bacteria and often emit terrible smelling odors. Most cockroach species are nocturnal preferring to only come out at night and scatter at any sign of light, however there are some species who are attracted to light.

COCKROACH PEST CONTROL

When it comes to controlling cockroach populations, there is no one and done method to remove them entirely. While some do it yourself methods will help reduce a small portion of a cockroach population, chances are you’re only seeing a tiny portion of their true numbers. Removing a cockroach infestation takes expert knowledge and professional equipment to eradicate a cockroach population entirely.

At MasterGuard, our cockroach pest control services and technicians are fully prepared to rid cockroaches from you home or business.

COCKROACH DANGERS

The greatest danger to humans that a cockroach can bring is through the proteins that are shed from their skin. These proteins are known to cause allergies particularly in children and other sensitive individuals and are linked to asthma as well. In addition, cockroaches can transfer harmful bacteria to surfaces we commonly touch as well as to any food they get into.
