Cockroach Control

Cockroaches are unfortunately a very common problem across the United States, and Coachella Valley is no stranger to these infestations. Once cockroaches get into your home, they are difficult to eradicate. Getting in touch with a professional pest control company is often necessary in order to ensure that these pests stay away from your property for good.

Facts About Cockroaches

There are four types of cockroaches commonly found in the United States: German, Brown-banded, American and Oriental. Of these, German cockroaches are the most prevalent and the most difficult to get rid of. They reproduce quickly, are small in size and are brown in color. They congregate in areas with water, like the kitchen and bathroom.

Unlike German cockroaches, the brown-banded variety like to stay where it is warm and can often be found inside of electronics. They are about the same size as German roaches but are darker in color. American cockroaches are the biggest of all four varieties. They can live for a few years, they can fly, and they are often called "palmetto bugs."

Oriental cockroaches love the water. They are bigger than German and brown-banded roaches, but they are not quite as big as American roaches. They are also darker in color than their counterparts and they do not fly.

Why Should You Be Worried About Cockroaches?

Cockroaches have the potential to cause diseases like diarrhea. They can also exacerbate the symptoms of people suffering from allergies or asthma. As a result, it is important to address a cockroach problem as soon as possible.

How Can You Get Rid Of Cockroaches?

The best way to control a cockroach problem is to deny them access to food. Make sure you sweep and vacuum often. Take out the trash on a regular basis. Don't leave food or dirty dishes sitting out and seal up any food containers that the cockroaches might be able to gain access to. Cockroaches also don't like to be out among people. They want to hide away, and so if there is clutter in the home, they will have an easier time doing that. Pick up so that there are fewer spots for the cockroaches to escape. Finally, use baits to try and eliminate the problem.
