How to Avoid a Roach Infestation

Roaches are a problem that many homeowners face at some point. These pests can sneak into your home through small cracks and crevices and quickly establish themselves. If you want to avoid a roach infestation, you should take steps to keep them out of your home.

Some tips for keeping roaches away from your home include:

  • Keep your home clean and free of food debris.
  • Promptly clean up spills and crumbs in the kitchen and dining areas.
  • Store food in airtight containers to prevent roaches from accessing it.
  • Take out the trash regularly and keep garbage cans tightly sealed.
  • Fix any leaky pipes or faucets to eliminate moisture sources that attract roaches.
  • Dry wet areas promptly and use dehumidifiers in damp spaces.
  • Seal off entry points by repairing cracks, gaps, and holes in walls, windows, and doors.
  • Minimize clutter in your home as it provides hiding places for roaches.
  • Use roach baits or traps as a preventive measure, especially in areas prone to infestations.
  • Regularly inspect your home for signs of roach activity, such as droppings or egg casings.
  • If you notice any signs of roaches, contact a professional pest control company for immediate assistance.

By following these preventive measures and staying vigilant, you can greatly reduce the risk of a roach infestation and maintain a clean and pest-free home environment.

Signs You Have a Roach Infestation

Roaches are nocturnal creatures, which means that you are less likely to see them during the day. However, there are several signs that you have a roach problem.

Some of the most common signs include:

  • Presence of live roaches: If you spot roaches scurrying across your floors, walls, or countertops, it is a clear indication of an infestation.
  • Droppings: Roach droppings are small, dark, and cylindrical in shape. You may find them in areas where roaches hide or frequent, such as kitchen cabinets, pantry shelves, or behind appliances.
  • Foul odor: Roaches emit a distinct musty odor, especially when their population is large. If you notice an unpleasant smell in certain areas of your home, it could be a sign of roach activity.
  • Egg casings: Roaches produce egg casings that are brownish or reddish-brown in color. These casings are often found in hidden areas, such as cracks, crevices, or behind furniture.
  • Smear marks: Roaches leave behind smear marks as they crawl along surfaces. These marks are dark and may appear on walls, baseboards, or countertops.
  • Damage to food packaging: Roaches are known to chew through paper, plastic, and cardboard packaging to access food. If you find gnaw marks or holes in your food containers, it suggests a roach infestation.
  • Shed skins: As roaches grow, they shed their skins. Finding discarded roach skins, especially in areas where they hide, indicates an ongoing infestation.
  • Allergy symptoms: Roach allergens can trigger allergic reactions in some individuals. If you or your family members experience unexplained allergy symptoms like sneezing, coughing, or skin irritation, it could be a result of roach infestation.

What to Expect from Our Professional Roach Control Services

If you suspect that you have a roach problem, you should call for professional help. A good roach control company will inspect your home and perform a detailed evaluation of your property.

The technician will look for cracks and crevices where roaches can enter your home, as well as potential nesting areas inside your home. Once the roach control technician has identified the problem, they will develop a customized treatment plan to eliminate the roaches from your home.

This plan will include an inspection and treatment of your home's exterior as well as interior treatments. Depending on the severity of the infestation, roach control treatments can take a few weeks or several months to be fully effective.

    "Thank you!"

    Brandon was awesome. He was attentive, patient, and very informative. He even included our youngest child in the process which really made our son's day.

    - Maria D.
    "Very friendly. Would recommend."

    Always have a great experience with the techs. Brandon S. came out today and took care of several of our trouble areas with insects. He had so much patience and took the time to explain what he was doing and why when I asked.

    - Jen W.
    "I am so very pleased with the service we received."

    We have never found him to be ‘rushed’ or in a hurry, and yet it doesn’t feel like he is ‘slow’. Clearly, he knows his business and we continue to look forward to Don’s visit to protect our home.

    - Vicki T.
    "I'm very happy with this Company!"

    I truly appreciate his professionalism, vast knowledge, and friendliness, and that he listens to my concerns and addresses them.

    - Reese
    "He was also considerate to make sure he had permission to access each of our rooms and closets."

    With the rainy day protocol, he made sure we knew to keep the dog inside for the appropriate amount of time - due to the use of a different outdoor treatment than on dry days

    - Kevin G.
    "I'm pleased with the continued service we get."

    Dan has been to our house now more than once. He is quick, professional, and knowledgeable. I like that they use non-toxic products inside my home. The safety of my kids and pets is #1!

    - Elizabeth C.
    "Very satisfied!"

    The first treatment took care of most of them. 2 weeks later I called and Brandon came right back out within 24 hours for a second treatment which took care of the rest.

    - Bill S.
    "Nelson was prompt, professional, and knowledgeable."

    I left work to meet him at my home and I was back to work in no time! He left his card for me to contact him if I had any further concerns and assured me that he is in the area frequently.

    - Melinda B.
