Cockroach Control in Memphis, Spring Hill, Columbus, and Aberdeen

Cockroach Control Pros

Is it bad to have cockroaches in your house?

While cockroaches are one of the most common pest problems, they are also the most stubborn. Infestations are challenging to eliminate because the insects hide in a host of areas, breed quickly, have a very high reproductive potential, and may develop resistance to pesticides.

Cockroaches often taint food with E. coli and Salmonella bacteria, so ignoring these pests is unsafe. Exposure to cockroach feces and the body parts of dead roaches over time can even trigger allergies and asthma.

Cockroach identification

A few different species of cockroaches are present here in the Mid-south, with the most common being the German and American cockroaches. German roaches are usually dark brown, 1/2” – 5/8” in size, while American roaches are darker and bigger at 1-1/2” to 2”.

Both types of cockroaches are active year-round, using coming out predominantly at night to find food and water. Roaches are nocturnal creatures and usually spend their days hiding away in dark, protected spots around your home.

What causes cockroaches in the house?

People often blame a cockroach problem on poor housekeeping. While cleaning floors, kitchens, and bathrooms is valuable and very important to reduce food sources cockroaches use, they may get inside and cause an infestation for other reasons. These pests can hitch a ride on infested items brought inside, get indoors via cracks and gaps in the home’s exterior, enter through drains or sewer pipes, and a few species of cockroaches can fly inside when attracted to lights.

Health Risks & Consequences: Why You Need a Professional Roach Killer and Cockroach Removal Services

Cockroaches aren’t just unpleasant and disturbing; they can pose significant health risks to you, your family, or your employees. This is why timely intervention by a professional roach exterminator, such as James Pest Control Management, is crucial in Memphis, Spring, Columbus, Aberdeen, and beyond. Here are some of the health risks and consequences associated with a cockroach infestation:

  • Allergies: Cockroaches can trigger allergies in many people. Skin contact or inhalation of allergens from cockroach droppings, shed skins, or body parts can lead to allergic reactions, such as skin rashes, watery eyes, sneezing, and nasal congestion.
  • Asthma: For those with asthma, particularly children, a cockroach infestation can be especially dangerous. The allergens released by roaches can trigger asthma attacks and even worsen the condition over time.
  • Food Contamination: Roaches are scavengers and are often found in areas where food is stored. They can contaminate food, utensils, and cooking surfaces with their droppings and bacteria carried on their bodies, leading to food poisoning.
  • Disease Transmission: Cockroaches can carry and spread various harmful bacteria and parasites, including E. coli, salmonella, and intestinal worms. These can cause illnesses ranging from diarrhea and dysentery to more serious conditions like typhoid fever.
  • Mental Stress: Besides physical health risks, a roach infestation can also lead to significant mental stress and discomfort, impacting your peace of mind and overall quality of life.

Frequently asked questions

 If you see a cockroach in your house during the day, there is a good chance you will find more. Other than sightings, signs of a cockroach infestation are cockroach droppings, a musty or a mildewy smell, cockroach egg casings, and a cockroach nest. A variety of droppings, eggs, and large numbers of cockroaches mean a nest is near and infestation occurring.

Different species require different methods of eradication. The species determine the cost, the measures needed to control the roaches, and the size of the area that requires treatment. Treatment programs can vary from one-time application to continual maintenance programs. Usually, the maintenance programs are your best value.

The first step in Cockroach Extermination is determining the species of roaches. Afterward, they will prevent the infestation from growing by selecting the entry points and sealing them off. Finally, the exterminator will choose and implement the best form of pest control based on the species and infestation. Typical forms of roach control are baits, traps, and pesticides.

Reinfestations can occur depending on the particular species involved and where your home is situated. American cockroaches, for example, can come back more readily due to their habitat outside of a home or structure. Regular exterior cockroach control, in addition to sealing outside cracks and holes in walls, can help limit such invasions.

The absolute best way to eradicate cockroaches from your home is pesticide applications. Baiting and trap systems are also effective, but come in second place to pesticides.
