How Pros at A-1 Pest Control Treat Homes with Cockroach Infestations
January 17, 2019
Cockroaches are the one insect that people dread discovering in their homes the most. Not only are cockroaches unappealing to look at, but they also bring an immense amount of bacteria, filth, and viral pathogens into homes with them.
How And Why Cockroaches Get Inside
At this point in the year, it is not uncommon to see roaches crawling across surfaces in your kitchen, bathroom, and basement as they search for food and warmth. It’s officially chilly outside, which is not good news for cockroaches.
Roaches prefer to hide in areas that are warm, dark, and moist, which is one of the primary reasons they invade homes. Interestingly enough, many of the cockroaches that get inside are brought in by us! As these roaches seek shelter from the cold, items such as boxes and paper bags that retain moisture fairly well may seem like a good place to hide. However, when we bring those boxes or bags into our homes, we may also mistakenly bring cockroaches inside with them.
Roaches also get into homes by crawling through holes made for utility wiring, drains that are not properly installed, and piping that leads outdoors.
