Roaches, Here Today! – Here Tomorrow? Not If We Can Help It!

by | Mar 6, 2021 | 0 comments

Some scientists and researchers believe, the Cockroach, a bug designed by nature to adapt so successfully to its environment that it has survived — virtually unchanged — for hundreds of millions of years, is truly worthy of some respect and it’s place on the tree of life.

Worthy of this honor or not, they are still a plague upon humankind.

It’s hard to imagine these lowly, disease carrying, creepy crawlies, as being the last creatures standing, at the end of this world. Cockroaches have survived many extinction events, including the end of the dinosaurs, so why not the end of man. Man may pass away but Roaches will continue to play!

Is there a positive side to cockroaches? When they show up in your home or place of business, No! Cockroaches, are well-known pests. You might even label them infamous. They can spread disease (including E. coli and Salmonella), cause respiratory conditions, like asthma, damage goods

and their populations can grow very quickly from a single egg-carrying female to a full-fledged, widespread, stinking infestation.

Cockroaches eat everything people eat plus a lot more. They’re nocturnal (coming out at night to forage), so if you see them in daylight, they’re hiding places have been disturbed — or you’ve got an infestation so huge, there are more roaches than spaces to hide in.

Living with cockroaches can be hazardous to your health. Get help fast! Catching a small infestation quickly can take a minimal of extermination effort including; cleaning and sanitizing affected areas and calling in pest control professionals to apply best practices for their elimination including state approved products that get rid of roaches.  When infestations are left unchallenged, and roaches are crawling everywhere, in every room, and you can smell their stink, traditional methods of control may not produce, the hoped for results.  In extreme cases of infestation, pest professionals turn to fumigation combined with chemical applications as the best way to ensure control and elimination of roaches.

Corky’s Pest Control offers both chemical control and fumigation to get rid of Cockroaches inside single-family homes, apartments, and businesses.
