When to Call an Exterminator for Cockroaches
Cockroaches are one of the most widespread insects in the world. You can find them everywhere except Antarctica, so there is a good chance that some of them may be hiding in your building. Although they can't survive a nuclear explosion as popularly believed, they are very resilient and tough. They breed quickly and increase in numbers exponentially, so even a small infestation must be taken seriously. That's why you need a reliable cockroach exterminator like Pestroy Inc.
We know all there is to know about cockroaches. Did you know that cockroaches play an essential role in the ecosystem when they're not causing people to freak out inside buildings?
You know there is a cockroach problem in your building when you see cockroaches during the day. They are nocturnal insects, so if you see them when the sun is still out, they have multiplied so much that they're running out of space to hide. Also, if you see cockroaches of different sizes, it is an indication that they are breeding, and it is high time to call for a cockroach exterminator. You can check the dark and damp areas in your building to see if there are any cockroach egg cases. They look like dark brown tic-tacs and they house anywhere from 15-50 eggs in them, which will hatch in a matter of few weeks. If you suspect the presence of cockroaches in the building, but you don't see any, you can try using your other senses. Most cockroach species don't make any noise that you can hear, but they emit a certain musky, wet-dog kind of smell that is noticeable when they congregate in large numbers. You can usually follow this scent to a damp, dark, and secluded area of the building. Another telltale sign of a cockroach infestation is finding rubbish that looks like coffee grounds, which is their fecal matter. If you see such residue lying around in your building, you can be sure there are cockroaches even if you don't see them.
Don't Let Cockroaches Ruin Your Business!
The presence of cockroaches in any building is associated with poor maintenance and disregard for hygiene. Employees will not want to work in such an environment and anyone visiting will think twice about doing business with a company that seems so neglectful of its premises. Also, cockroaches can cause a myriad of diseases, which should be more than enough reason to have a contract with a cockroach exterminator for regular extermination.
Cockroaches are somewhat of a force of nature; they can’t be permanently deterred from invading any property. However, with regular extermination and following a few DIY tips, you can make sure their population is under strict control.
- Making sure there are no damp areas in the building
