It is a mistake to assume that if someone has cockroaches they must live in squalor - roaches can occur even in smart, clean homes. However, they are more likely to be attracted to homes with easily accessible food due to poor cleaning and sanitation. Sanitation is critical to a successful control plan.
If you have not seen any roaches but suspect you may have a problem with a pest, there are common signs you can look for in your home to confirm their presence. Ehrlich’s technicians understand the lifecycle, and crucially the habits, of cockroaches and will be able to inspect common hotspots in your home for roaches.
Cockroaches can gain access into your home through cracks and voids in walls, via drainpipes, air vents and even sewers.
They are often attracted indoors by the food, water and shelter your home can provide.
Once inside your home, cockroaches will seek out warm, dark, and often damp, areas in your home to hide in during day time. As cockroaches are nocturnal by nature, they tend to forage for food and mates at night time, although you may see them during the day if there is a large population present.
Cockroaches are known to carry certain diseases, including salmonella, dysentery, and gastroenteritis. As a homeowner, you are unlikely to come into direct contact with roaches, but you may inadvertently consume food they could have contaminated.
Cockroach droppings, saliva and cast skins are known to cause allergies and are linked to some cases of childhood asthma.
Due to this potential health risk, homeowners are advised to understand the best ways to get rid of roaches.
