The Dangers of a Cockroach Infestation

Cockroach infestations pose serious dangers to both human health and property. The primary risk comes from the wide array of pathogens these pests carry. Cockroaches are known to carry dozens of kinds of bacteria and an alarming range of other human pathogens. They pick up germs on the spines of their legs and bodies as they crawl through decaying matter or sewage and then carry these into food or onto food surfaces.
The diseases or allergens that cockroaches carry can lead to diarrhea, dysentery, cholera, leprosy, plague, typhoid fever, and viral diseases such as poliomyelitis. Furthermore, they are a significant source of indoor allergens and can potentially trigger allergic reactions or exacerbate asthma symptoms.

In addition to health risks, cockroaches can cause damage to your property. They have a penchant for paper and fabric, which can lead to the destruction of books, wallpaper, curtains, and other similar materials found within your home. They can also stain various surfaces with their feces, creating unsightly marks. In large-scale infestations, the presence of a substantial cockroach population can even lead to a foul odor that permeates throughout the affected area.

Finally, the presence of cockroaches can cause emotional stress and anxiety. Being aware of the health risks they pose, coupled with the disgust at their unseen presence, can significantly affect one’s peace of mind and overall emotional well-being.

When you find these repulsive pests lurking around your house, turn to our responsive team for residential cockroach control. We recognize that you need these pests gone as quickly as possible, and we are ready to jump into action to ensure the complete elimination of all roaches in your home.

Signs You May Have a Cockroach Infestation

While seeing a single cockroach in your home may understandably cause concern, it’s important to note that this does not necessarily indicate an infestation. Cockroaches are highly resilient creatures capable of surviving in various environments. It is possible for a lone cockroach to find its way into your home from outside. A single sighting, especially if the cockroach is found in a non-typical area such as a bedroom, is more likely a random event rather than a sign of an underlying infestation. With that said, you should watch out for the warning signs of a more serious, widespread cockroach problem, as catching an infestation early is crucial in preventing its spread and possible health risks.

Do not wait to reach out to American Pest Control if you notice any of the following signs of a cockroach infestation:
❗ Seeing live cockroaches. Cockroaches are nocturnal creatures, so if you spot them during the day, it could indicate a severe infestation. They tend to hide in dark, damp areas like basements, under sinks, and behind appliances.
❗ Cockroach droppings. Cockroach feces can resemble coffee grounds or black pepper. The presence of these droppings, especially in areas like kitchen cabinets, bathrooms, or behind appliances, is a clear sign of an infestation.
❗ Unusual odor. A large infestation can produce a musty or oily odor. This unpleasant smell is generated by cockroaches to communicate with each other, and it tends to linger even after the roaches are gone.
❗ Cockroach egg cases. Cockroaches produce egg cases, known as ootheca, which they deposit in hidden locations. These brownish, oblong cases contain multiple eggs, and their presence is a telltale sign of an infestation.
❗ Shed skins. As cockroaches grow, they shed their exoskeletons. Finding these shed skins around your home is another sign of a potential infestation.
❗ Unexplained property damage. Cockroaches tend to eat materials like paper and fabric. If you find unexplained damage to items like books, wallpaper, or curtains, it could be the work of cockroaches.
❗ Grease marks. Cockroaches can leave behind dark smear marks as they crawl along walls or floorboards. These marks suggest a cockroach problem.
❗ Strange sounds. Cockroaches can produce a distinctive sound, especially at night. If you hear a faint clicking or rustling sound when the house is quiet, it could be a sign of a cockroach infestation.

Cockroach Pest Control Treatment Process

If you have identified a cockroach infestation in your home or business, we recommend contacting a professional pest control company to carry out the work. Unfortunately, cockroaches can spread many nasty diseases, so controlling the infestation yourself can be tricky. DIY methods such as glue traps and bait stations can make a slight difference; however, they are basic and will only work on a small number of roaches. If your pest problem is significant, DIY solutions will not prove helpful.

At Carpet Addicts, we have access to professional high-grade insecticides to exterminate cockroaches effectively. Our cockroach pest control service includes the following:

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon can you come for a treatment?
We are available 24/7 so you can contact us as soon as you notice a problem and schedule a treatment. The soonest we can come is one hour after your call, or later in the day if we are too busy. However, if our schedule doesn’t allow us to help you in the nearest days, we will provide you with information on how to deal with the problem in the meantime.

How long will a visit from you take?
Our services are not timely-based so your exterminator will stay until the job is done. Each service takes a different amount of time and depends on the type and size of infestation.

Are your pest control procedures safe for people and pets?
Our treatments and the products we are using are pretty safe but we do advise you to remain out of the property and let them settle for a couple of hours. This will help the treatment work at its fullest without any harm to you and your pet. Again, once the products have settled they become safe. We do ask to cover any fish tanks you have during the treatment.

Can you treat my pet for fleas?
Unfortunately, we cannot treat your pet for fleas as it is not our job nor are our treatments suitable for animals. Though, we advise you to take your pet to the vet while the flea treatment is executed – this will ensure both your home and pet are free of fleas.

What types of properties do you take care of?
Our services are suitable for various types of properties. We treat domestic and commercial properties alike. If you are curious about our business-tailored solutions, make sure to contact us over the phone to discuss what exactly are you looking for.

A household near me had an infestation. Should I worry?
It depends on the pest itself. Sometimes treatments drive pests away of the property and they will search for another house to hide in. We advise you to get your property inspected just in case. You can book an inspection by pressing the button below.

What if the pest issue persist and I see the creatures after the treatment?
You should know that it’s completely normal to notice an increase in the pest activity right after the treatment. This just means that the treatment is working because the pests try to escape. If you are still seeing them after 7 days, you’ve probably haven’t booked our insured services which include multiple visits. This is the program we recommend for complete pest eradication.

Is it true that pests trigger asthma symptoms?
Yes, insects like cockroaches and bed bugs spread illnesses around and can trigger allergic reactions, particularly in children.

Should I clean after a treatment?
It is not advisable to clean a treated area after a pest control procedure because you’ll wash off the products your exterminator has applied. They are completely safe once they settle, so you shouldn’t worry about that.
