Roaches are one of the most common pests in apartment buildings and houses.
They are also one of the most hated, which is why they keep cockroach control pros so busy! Who doesn’t cringe at the sight of roaches scurrying away when a kitchen light is turned on? This distaste is well-founded because cockroaches can cause health problems.
Cockroach control is essential. You see, they are not considered to be pests only because of the “yuck factor.” They secrete vomit and also give off a foul odor, which is very difficult to get rid of. Plus they damage household possessions ranging from hardbound books to upholstered furniture.
But worse than these revolting habits are their “calling cards.” In their wake, cockroaches leave partially digested food and feces. Since they feed on human waste and garbage, they pick up parasitic worms and disease organisms, which they spread via digestive fluids left on the food they have nibbled at. Moreover, they transmit other microbes through the hairs on their bodies.
The first step in cockroach control is cleanliness. Keep your kitchen clean, and never leave dirty dishes lying around. Put leftover food in the fridge immediately. Non perishable foods should be stored in tightly sealed containers. Empty your trashcan often, cover it, and rinse it occasionally with a bleach solution.
