Keeping Cockroaches Out Of Your New Braunfels Home
Cockroaches tend to be universally hated. They are creepy and ugly bugs. Most people don't realize that there are far more serious reasons to dislike these pests.
The major problem with cockroaches is that they frequent dirty areas at best and dangerously unsanitary places at worst. You'll often find cockroaches in dumpsters or garbage cans, on animal carcasses or feces, or in other filthy areas. If they then enter your home, crawl across your countertops, and spend time where you prep your food or brush your teeth, you are at risk of contracting any number of serious illnesses. Cockroaches are also responsible for triggering allergy and asthma symptoms in some people.
If you've seen a cockroach in your New Braunfels home, there are likely others hidden away under sinks or inside walls. Although cockroaches can be extremely difficult to eliminate, you won't have to worry when you contact Pinnacle Pest Defense.
Our Cockroach Control Process
Your cockroach control begins with an inspection of your home. This inspection focuses on determining where the cockroaches nest. This inspection allows us to focus our treatments on the areas of cockroach activity in order to provide the best results.
Our cockroach control treatments involve several steps and several treatment methods to provide the best possible results. We begin by using a liquid treatment to flush the cockroaches out of their hiding places.
We use an insect growth regulator product to prevent cockroaches from being able to molt. Once unable to molt, they will begin to die off.
Other treatment methods we use include:
- Glue boards and pheromone sticky traps. Traps and glue boards work by attracting the cockroaches to them, where the roaches then get stuck. These also help us identify where cockroach activity is taking place so that we can further target our treatments.
- Bait. Bait works similarly to our traps in that it attracts the cockroaches to it. It works similarly to the insect growth regulator in that once cockroaches take the bait, it eventually eliminates them.
- Insect monitors. Insect monitors are another tool that helps us identify cockroach activity and target our treatments to the areas where the roaches are spending their time.
- Vacuuming. In the case of a large infestation, we'll often use a vacuum to remove as many cockroaches that are out in the open as possible. While this doesn't eliminate the problem, it provides relief as the other treatments begin to take effect.
Our cockroach control typically requires one to two follow-up visits to ensure total elimination. We'll re-inspect and re-treat as necessary when we arrive at your home.
