Why You Need a Professional Exterminator
It’s a fact, roaches seem like they are indestructible. The average roach spray or store-bought extermination option will only get your efforts so far. The only way to truly get rid of cockroaches and keep them away is through the controlled processes of a professional exterminator.
Are Cockroach Infestations Dangerous?
Cockroaches can be a health hazard, since they can trigger asthma attacks, especially in children. The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences reports that one in five children have sensitivities to cockroach allergens, which are introduced into the home through roach saliva, droppings, and decomposing bodies of cockroaches.
Cockroaches also spread nearly 32 kinds of bacteria, including E.coli and Salmonella, which can contaminate cooking utensils, food, and food surfaces. Since cockroaches are so attracted to the food we eat, the feces and regurgitation can be left behind on food that’s left out around the house. Two of the most extreme health issues that can arise out of a cockroach infestation are:
- Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Signs You Have Cockroaches
Aside from visibly seeing the cockroaches scurry beneath appliances when the lights turn on, there are some very distinct signs that your home is the source of an infestation.
If you start to notice long, black pellets around the home, this isn’t just dirt brought in from outside. These are cockroach droppings, and they are a sure sign that your infestation is in full effect.
When a family of roaches has decided to call your property their home, you’ll begin to notice an unpleasant scent wherever they’ve been creeping around. This means your roach infestation has been going on for a while, and it’s time to get in touch with a professional roach exterminator.
One of the more unsightly signs that your home is a roach haven is the shell of shed cockroach skins. As these pests grow, they will shed up to 8 times before adulthood. These skins aren’t sanitary and getting the roaches out of your home is the only way to get your household back in order.
