Keep Cockroaches Out Of Your Home With Mitchell Pest
Keeping cockroaches at bay can be a huge headache because these determined and stubborn pests are always trying to figure out ways to get into your Fort Lauderdale home. However, if you don't deter cockroaches, the consequences could be a lot more serious than you think.
That's because these nasty insects spread a wide variety of different pathogens, ranging from bacterial and viral infections to even parasites and protozoa. Cockroaches contaminate everything they touch, which means if they infest your home, they can contaminate anything and everything in it, from the food stored in your pantry to the surfaces you cook on and even the utensils you use to eat. That's why the importance of cockroach control cannot be overstated.
Unfortunately, cockroach control is easier said than done, especially if you get an established population. This is not just because cockroaches breed so fast that each one you eliminate has probably already replaced itself many times over. It's also because cockroaches are notoriously tough and can develop resistance to a plethora of cockroach control solutions in a shockingly short time. That's where the experts here at Mitchell Pest come in.
Our Cockroach Control Process
Cockroaches might quickly breed and develop resistance, but we update our cockroach control methods and technologies to keep up here at Mitchell Pest. The first thing we do when we come out to your house is conduct a thorough investigation to determine how much cockroach activity is occurring and what species are invading your home. This will determine the course of action that we take and help us create a plan to treat your home.
We offer a variety of cockroach control products and services, and we can discuss these with you after your inspection based on the severity of the problem and the species that you have in your home. For most cockroach problems, we will use a specialized growth regulator during our initial visit. Growth regulators work better than products that kill on contact because the cockroaches spread them to each other. Once this happens, the growth regulator will prevent cockroaches from reproducing, and the population will begin to die out with subsequent generations.
We enhance the effectiveness of our growth regulator by using a variety of bait and liquid products to eliminate adult roaches, and we also use monitoring stations to ensure that our cockroach control efforts are succeeding. After our initial visit, we may follow up with you on a weekly or bi-weekly basis until the problem is under control. Then, we will move to a monthly monitoring visit to ensure you do not develop a cockroach issue again.
Not only will we perform all of these functions, but we will also help you learn how to take cockroach control into your own hands by eliminating conducive conditions such as debris, clutter, moisture, food, and other cockroach attractants. This way, we can work together to keep your home free from these dangerous, disease-ridden pests.
Trust Mitchell Pest To Keep You Safe From Roaches
If you don't yet have a cockroach problem, there are some things you can do to try to ensure you never get one:
- Cover all indoor and outdoor garbage at all times.
- Clear clutter and debris on your property to eliminate roach hiding spots.
- Take care of moisture issues like poor drainage, leaky pipes, and condensation.
- Store all pantry foods, including pet food, in airtight containers.
- Never leave dirty dishes or dirty pet bowls sitting out.
- Seal cracks and holes in your home’s exterior to prevent roach entry.
- Vacuum and wipe surfaces frequently to eliminate crumbs.
- Contact professional pest control as soon as you notice signs of cockroach issues.
That last one is extremely important. Cockroach problems only get worse over time because cockroaches breed exponentially. Once they mature, they begin breeding very quickly and can lay hundreds of eggs in their lifetimes. This means a small number of cockroaches can quickly explode into a huge population. If you contact cockroach terminators before this happens, you will save a ton of time and money. So don't wait until cockroaches take over your whole house.
