There are few pests that can aggravate a home owner more than cockroaches. They are not known to be poisonous or have a toxic sting, but cockroaches can spread disease and filth throughout parts of your home if left unchecked. Plus, cockroaches come out mostly at night so, if you see them by day, you have a real infestation problem that requires a call to a cockroach exterminator right away.
Cockroaches are common pests throughout the United States; the German cockroach and the Brown banded cockroach can be found in Mobile, AL. These insects can adapt to any type of environment, from rural farms to city apartment complexes. They are drawn to warm, moist environments like beneath sinks and inside kitchen cabinets, but once they are around they can make their way into any crevice and crack within your house. It is not uncommon for cockroaches to crawl into electronic equipment, within the bindings of books, or underneath kitchen appliances.
What makes cockroaches particularly insidious as pests is they are scavengers. Cockroaches will eat almost anything that can be consumed and digested, from starches, sweets and grease products to decaying plant or animal matter. Much of the cockroach’s diet can be found in your garage, or someone else’s garage. The bacteria and germs they crawl over and collect are often deposited in your home or, worse, in unsecured containers of food or drink.
Cockroaches are hard to get rid of once they’ve established colonies in your home. The best way to deal with an infestation is to invest in cockroach control services by an expert exterminator. These people will have knowledge of the cockroach’s life cycle, where they nest, and how to deal with the infestation problem permanently to make your home safer and cockroach free.
