Cockroach Control & Roach Extermination in Massachusetts, Cape Cod, New Hampshire and Southern Maine
Cockroaches 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 infestation to have in your home or business. Good sanitation and cleanliness is the proper step to stopping these pests from entering your home in the first place. However, they can come in the home through packaging and then be attracted to any small deposit of sugar, grease, pet food and any food that may get stuck in hard to reach places.
The largest of the most common species of roaches around is the American Cockroach, measuring 1 ½ inches or more. German Cockroaches are the most common roach found in homes in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. The German cockroach will enter your home and find a dark, moist location to live while waiting for its next meal. 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. Most cockroaches are found in the bathroom and kitchen areas as they both offer ideal living conditions. Cockroaches eat during the night time and rest secluded and hidden in your home throughout the day, helping them stay undetected.
