Cockroach Control

About Cockroachesroach

There are about 70 species of cockroaches in the US. The largest of the most common species of roaches around is the American Cockroach, measuring 1 ½ inches or more. The most common cockroach in homes in the area is the German Cockroach. Roaches will make their home anywhere that has heat, food, water and shelter. Roaches can sneak into your home through small cracks or gaps in the walls, spaces near the electrical sockets and through drain pipes. Even clean homes can get cockroaches. They can come in the home through packaging and be attracted to minute deposits of sugar, grease, pet food and any food that may get stuck in hard to reach places like under the sink, drains, under the fridges and cabinets. Cockroaches eat during the night time and rest secluded and hidden in your home throughout the day, helping them stay undetected.

Roaches Health Risks

Cockroaches can spread microbes and pathogens that can be dangerous to humans. They can spread over 30 types of bacteria, such as Salmonella and E. coli, parasitic worms and other pathogens to humans. This can make them a dangerous uninvited guest! Good sanitation and cleanliness is the proper step to stopping these pests from entering your home. If you do find yourself with cockroaches in, call A1 right away.
