It can take months or even years for a person to find their ideal living space, but pests are nowhere near as picky. All it normally takes for rodents or insects to lay their heads is an active food source, but sometimes even that is not a requirement. Cockroaches, for example, do not need a regular food source to survive - or even thrive. These pests can grow their numbers and take over whole properties in extreme climates, with a lack of food or water. When stubborn pests have invaded your home or workspace, the most efficient way to get rid of them is through professional treatment and care.
All across North America, cockroaches are one of the most common things to go bump in the night. Every household has the odd pest here or there and some of these, like spiders, are easy to ignore. Roaches, however, should never be ignored. Nearly every type of insect is known to spread bacteria in some way or another but cockroaches take the spread of germs to another level as a whole. In addition to being creepy, roaches spread urine, bacteria and saliva around even the most delicate areas of properties. These materials are unsanitary but they can also mean serious health risks for tenants and even visitors. Waste can mean a negative impact on those with allergies but it can also lead to major respiratory issues, digestive illness and even sepsis. These are particularly bad for those with weakened immune systems and children but everyone is vulnerable to these health hazards.
In addition to being a risk to your health, roaches are a risk to the condition of your home and its property value. Whether trying to rent out a room or sell your property, there is no way that it is going to happen if there are signs of cockroaches around. Signs of infestation can be as as simple as a scattering of droppings (which look like a bit of ground pepper or coffee) or the bodies (or pieces of!) expired cockroaches. As long as there are cockroaches under your roof, there will be dangerous materials left behind. Keep your space safe and cleanly all with one call to our Toodaloo pest experts.
The costs of loading up on bug baits or physical traps, can add up quickly but that doesn’t stop many property owners. Just because you put down a bait does not mean that your living space is in the clear. When choosing professional service, there is more to it than just laying down basic traps and treatments. Many cockroaches are immune to certain pesticides and are able to adapt quickly to new threats. This is why Toodaloo technicians treat adult roaches, adolescents and even eggs. By treating roaches at every stage of the lifecycle, our pest control experts know just how to get rid of current infestations and help to prevent new ones from popping up.
