What It Takes To Get Rid Of Cockroaches In Your Beaumont Home

August 15, 2022

Do you have what it takes to remove a cockroach infestation from your home? Most people do not. This isn’t because they are not smart. It’s usually because they lack the time, energy, and/or patience to handle cockroaches on their own. There is nothing wrong with this. If you think you have what it takes to control a cockroach infestation inside your Beaumont home, here are some things to consider today. If you would rather skip right to getting professional services, call the experts at Pestco Professional Pest. We would love to lend you a helping hand.

Types Of Roaches That Commonly Invade Beaumont Homes 

There are a few different types of cockroaches that like to invade homes here in Beaumont. Three you should know about are American cockroaches, German cockroaches, and Oriental cockroaches. Identify an American cockroach by its reddish-brown 1 ¼ to 2 ⅛” long body, and the yellow figure-eight mark located behind its head. Identify a German cockroach by its tan to light brown, ½ to ⅝” long body, and the two short black lines that run almost parallel behind its head. Finally, identify an Oriental cockroach by its black, 1” long body, and its lack of distinguishable markings. Although different in appearance, all kinds of cockroaches invade homes for the same reasons: to find food, moisture, and shelter. The question is, are cockroaches dangerous when they come indoors?

Cockroaches Trigger Allergies And Spread Diseases 

If there is anything you need to know about cockroaches, it is that these pests are dangerous. Specifically, cockroaches spread disease and can trigger asthma attacks with their shed skins and dry fecal droppings. You might contract a cockroach-borne disease by interacting with an area these pests have dragged their dirty bodies across or by ingesting some food or beverage that is contaminated. Some common diseases carried by cockroaches include salmonellosis, cholera, typhoid fever, leprosy, gastroenteritis, E. coli, and poliomyelitis. As cockroach infestations become worse indoors, your chances of getting sick increase. In order to reduce your chances of sickness, you need to put in place some form of cockroach control and remove any of these pests that are currently indoors. 

Why Do-It-Yourself Cockroach Control Usually Fails 

One way homeowners try to eliminate cockroaches is by using do-it-yourself pest control. In our experience, this method is usually unreliable. If you use natural products, cockroaches will be unaffected as they are resistant to even some forms of chemical-based pesticides. On the other side of things, if you use chemical-based pesticides wrong, you could put your family and pets at risk. These types of products are best left to a professional. If you are looking to save money and safely deal with cockroaches inside your home, let our team at Pestco Professional Pest lend you a helping hand today.
