First, Understand How To Spot A Cockroach Problem

The Importance Of Cleanliness In Deterring Cockroaches

Cockroaches are omnivores that will consume anything. Due to a cockroach's need for warmth and the desire for moisture, food and water in locations with these elements present, like a home, will attract it. Thus, house cockroach prevention includes the following: 

  • Repair leaking pipes and fixtures.
  • Vacuum the house regularly.
  • Suction out the corners, cracks, and crevices.
  • Wipe down cooking and eating surfaces after meals.
  • Store food products in airtight containers.
  • Remove clutter from the floor. 
  • Clean dishes and put them away before bedtime.
  • Close indoor garbage containers.

When a cockroach enters the house and finds food and water, it will communicate with other cockroaches. Also, female cockroaches will deposit egg capsules filled with eggs in locations near their nutritional sources; soon, you will have a cockroach infestation in your Covington home. 

When a Havard Pest Control technician inspects your home for signs of cockroaches in your home, we can provide additional tips. 

Why Most DIY Cockroach Control Methods Fail

When you move a cabinet and cockroaches scurry across the floor, your natural inclination may be to purchase a product and resolve the problem yourself. If you have done that, you know there is a satisfying aspect as you watch the cockroaches writhe in pain as the product destroys them. However, you may be reading this article because the satisfaction was short-lived, and the cockroaches have returned. 

Do-it-yourself seldom works with cockroaches. While a store-bought product may kill visible cockroaches on contact, it does not destroy their ootheca or hidden nests. You need a product that allows the bugs to carry it back to their group so it can spread among the members. Also, DIY products usually consist of outdated home pest control treatments that are no longer effective against cockroaches. Regarding DIY products, another concern is safety. In their zeal to eliminate cockroaches, some homeowners overapply or misapply cockroach pesticide products, exposing pets and children to unnecessary risk. 

Most homeowners cannot identify the cockroach species infesting their home. One needs to know which species are in the house because they have different habits and behaviors. In other words, you must treat an oriental cockroach infestation differently than an American or German one. Not knowing where to focus treatments is why many DIY attempts fail. 

It is tempting to think that spraying a product throughout a home will end a cockroach problem, but product application is only part of the picture. Effective cockroach control requires sealing entry points and removing attractants. Most people do not address the reasons why cockroaches invade the home.

Our Havard Pest Control technicians are certified in the safe application for professional-grade product application. Furthermore, they have experience with cockroach infestations, so they know where to look for signs and hot spots in the house. 

Why Professional Pest Control Is The Best Way To Get Rid Of Cockroach

When you , we will dispatch a trained technician to inspect your Covington home for cockroaches. We will investigate to determine entry points, attractants, hot spots, and the kind of cockroach species inside your home. Using the information we gather from you and our search, we will develop a comprehensive treatment plan utilizing Integrated Pest Management (IPM) protocols. 

IPM is a holistic pest control approach that focuses on disrupting the life cycle of pests by considering the habits and behaviors of the cockroach species infesting the house. This method requires minimal product usage to achieve maximum results while protecting the environment, pets, and children. In addition to precise product application, IPM strategies focus on identifying and eliminating attracts to deter future infestations. We will work with you to address those issues so you don't experience a re-infestation.

Because we are a QualityPro Certified company, all our technicians and customer service team members have certifications in their respective fields. We meet and exceed 16 Federal, state, and local regulations. Furthermore, our technicians have passed background checks, so you can be at ease when we inspect your home.
