Are Cockroaches Really As Bad As You've Heard?
When you see signs of a cockroach infestation, it can put you on edge. But how bad are roaches? Our onsite entomologist encourages residents and business owners not to underestimate them, both in their ability to avoid treatments and in their ability to cause sickness. Cockroaches are robust insects with a physiology capable of adaptation. They alter their taste receptors to reject bait and their skins to protect them from harmful materials. As a disease concern, the primary issue with cockroaches is that they are unsanitary pests. They're attracted to dirty environments, and they feed on filthy things. It is best not to have roaches in your Dover home or business, but getting rid of them and keeping them out isn't easy. You need dependable pest solutions in Dover, and we can help you find one!
A Dependable Solution For Dover Cockroaches
The cockroach species we see most in Dover and surrounding areas are German cockroaches, brown-banded cockroaches, American cockroaches, and wood cockroaches. Each is somewhat different. Brown-banded and German cockroaches are house roaches. They prefer to live exclusively indoors. American cockroaches often go in and out of structures because they have a higher moisture requirement and enjoy moist outdoor environments. However, during the winter, they'll remain indoors exclusively. Wood cockroaches are outdoor roaches. If you have these insects getting into your Dover home, you likely have a woodpile, dead branches, construction materials, leaves, and other natural materials near your exterior walls. Moving these away from your exterior and sealing potential entry points may work to keep those daytime roaches out. The other three nighttime cockroaches require more effort. We offer a solution you can count on.
- An inspection is needed to evaluate your cockroach issue. Your pest management professional will look for signs of activity, active cockroaches, conducive conditions, entry points, potential routes, and other factors relating to your cockroach infestation. We will then consider an effective strategy to get rid of them.
- We apply exclusion work to address common entry points and create a physical barrier that helps to prevent continued entry.
- We apply a multi-pronged treatment strategy that may include spraying, fogging, baiting, dusting, glue boards, and more. We use products and materials as required to provide unique control where needed. Some are used to monitor activity and ensure the success of the treatment.
- We follow up every two weeks or monthly until we no longer detect any cockroach activity.
Only experienced pest management professionals apply the treatment options we offer. We follow all safety protocols and apply materials in appropriate areas. For example, we insert dust applications into outlets, voids, and joists. Your pest management professional can properly identify the cockroaches in your home, select appropriate baits, and apply them so roaches won't avoid them. And, since our strategy does not rely on one cockroach control product or one method, we get great results. We also alter treatments if needed and ensure a successful treatment every time.
