It only takes one roach sighting to ruin an event. It doesn’t matter how clean your kitchen is, one cockroach can end the dinner, party or first date. The sighting of a roach in a restaurant could ruin a Yelp rating!

And that’s a little overboard, right?

Regardless of cleanliness, roaches are some of the most common pests found in homes. It’s likely there’s one hiding in every kitchen, everywhere. 

Yet they still cause an uproar.

Roaches are the one “pest” we can all agree upon as being the most gross, vigilant and equalizing of all pests. 

Roaches have an extreme ability to reproduce. They also emit a terrible smell! Cockroaches can cause problems in the form of diseases like E. Coli, Shigella, and Salmonella.

Seeing a roach SHOULD make you want to call a pest professional. There are many factors to consider when attempting to control roaches.

  •  What is the species of roach?
  • What are the conditions causing roaches?
  • What treatment should you apply?

Should you DIY this?

DIY treatments can drive roaches to hide deeper.  A pest professional knows the best course of treatment and is educated on the varieties of roaches.

Things you can do 

To prevent an infestation of roaches, the old saying “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” rings true!

  • Eliminate food sources.
  • Remove unwanted food from kitchen cabinets and your sink.
  • Empty the garbage regularly. 
  • Seal food items in airtight containers.
  • Put away dog food.
  • Clear out clutter.
  • Clean your surfaces.
  • Clean out your drains.
  • Seal off cracks and entrances.
