As nasty as cockroaches are, and as threatening as they may seem, they are not indestructible or irremovable. After all, Toodaloo’s Airdrie cockroach control and removal program works like a charm against these small pests. So if you have an infestation on your hands, leave it to us.
Cockroaches are nocturnal, preferring to live in dark, moist places. However, if the outdoors become too wet or too cold, they will seek shelter indoors. Once inside, they will establish a new home in your basement, kitchen, or bathroom for the aforementioned reasons. Then they will feed and reproduce. Their small, flat bodies can fit into narrow cracks, so you may find them hiding under refrigerators, sinks, stoves, mats, and more. They may even hide out inside your drains and pipes.
Detecting their presence may not be too hard. For smaller breeds, their droppings will look similar to black pepper or coffee grounds. For larger ones, they will be cylindrical, similar in shape to rodent droppings but smaller. There may be a strong musty smell as well. For some people, this scent can even trigger allergic reactions, which can itself be an indicator of cockroach infestation. Lastly, you may find the actual bugs, whether dead or alive, or moulted skins that they have left behind.
Don’t count on homemade or do it yourself ‘solutions.’ These often will not work or will only work for a short time. Cockroaches are notoriously hard to kill, and they have built up immunities to many common pesticides. Toodaloo’s technicians have the equipment and treatment methods on hand to properly deal with the roach population once and for all.
Give us a call any time you believe there to be an infestation in the area. You can reach us at 1-844-TOODALOO (866-3250) or go on our website.
