Victoria Cockroach Control & Removal

Victoria Cockroach Control & Removal

Cockroach infestations are not only unpleasant - they can be fatal! These seemingly indestructible insects impact digestive and respiratory health and can even mean sepsis! Roaches squat, scuttle and squeeze into tough to reach spaces, hiding out and spreading bacteria and droppings all over the place. For every cockroach that you catch sight of, there are another ten hiding behind the scenes. Don’t spend another day relying on inefficient gel baits or traps when Toodaloo has got you covered.

There are few things that roaches love more than moisture and a free meal. Unfortunately for property owners across Victoria B.C., homes and businesses are ideal spaces for these uninvited guests to camp out. Don’t leave your kitchens and bathrooms – or health! – at risk, when you can call Toodaloo instead.

When a roach scurries into your space, no area is off limits. Pest populations weave through low traffic areas, difficult to reach areas, crawlspaces, and even hide out in plain sight. When you want the best results for your Victoria cockroach removal, call a local expert like the ones at Toodaloo.

Identifying a Cockroach Infestation

No one wants to share their work or living spaces with creeping, crawling pests. More than looking slightly creepy, roaches transport disease, which leads to serious illness. Unlike smaller, more subtle pests, roaches can be quite large. Depending on what part of the world you are in, these pests can get up to 6 inches long. In Canada, however, most species are under an inch long.

Across North America, the most common types of cockroaches are the German cockroach and (unsurprisingly) the American cockroach. These range from black to brown and usually have wings but are unable to fly. These bothersome bugs might not be able to fly, but they can certainly shimmy!

Part of what makes getting rid of cockroaches so complicated is that they are able to squeeze themselves into tough to reach areas. The ability to scurry under appliances, squish themselves under cardboard boxes, behind paintings or just about anywhere else, makes it easy to go undetected for long periods. When you do catch a glimpse of a cockroach, there are likely dozens more hiding out behind the scenes.

Rushing to Get Rid of Roaches

Victoria is home to tons of residents but it is also home to over 550 restaurants and eateries. Having a roach infestation at home is bad enough but in the food service industry, this becomes even worse. On a large-scale, American or German roaches can lead to food poisoning, closures and a terrible mark on reputations.

In addition to the threat of illness – or even sepsis! – there is a threat of expensive repair or replacement costs, along with the price of potential damages and fumigation. Crawling pests do not just carry bacteria around with them, they leave droppings behind as well. Over time, pest leavings have been known to impact allergies, as well.

Because these pests are so dangerous, it is important to call for professional cockroach control at the first sign of an infestation. Amateur or DIY methods, like boric acid mixtures or bait stations might earn a superficial result but this won’t put a dent in overall populations. Professional roach control works to remove pests at every stage of the life cycle.
