Cockroaches are some of the most hated insects around, inspiring fear and revulsion in people. If you've found cockroaches in your home, you may feel horrified. A roach infestation can spread germs throughout your home. Roaches like to crawl through trash and other bacteria-filled areas, which makes them very dirty. Fortunately, a pest control service can get rid of all the cockroaches in your home and make sure they don't come back. Here are four things you'll want to do when you're ready to hire a pest control service:
1. Document the problem.
To the best of your ability, try to document the problem. Take note of where you see roaches in your home, as well as the general number of roaches you see on a daily basis. Write down anything you can remember about the roaches' general appearance, since there are multiple species of cockroach in the United States, and knowing which species they're facing can help an exterminator. Your exterminator will conduct a thorough investigation of your home, but starting with as much information as possible can help more the process along.
2. Protect your pets.
Pets are part of your family, which means you need to look out for their health and safety. Most pest control services use pesticides to kill insects and drive them out of your home. Some of these pesticides can be dangerous for your family pets as well. When you schedule your first pest control appointment, inform your pest control service about any pets that live in your house. This is necessary information that will help them tailor their treatment of your home. They may ask you to relocate your pet to another space until they've finished applying pesticide, just in case.
3. Wait to see the final results.
Pest control services use powerful pesticides to get rid of your roach problem. However, these pesticides don't work instantaneously. It can take a few days for roach poison to take effect. In the meantime, you may notice a few roaches moving throughout your house. These roaches may act disoriented or move slowly, but it's nothing to be concerned about. Remove dead and dying roaches from your house as soon as possible to prevent disease.
4. Schedule ongoing pest control.
Extermination services are an important first step in roach management. However, in order to keep the roaches from returning, you should schedule ongoing pest control services. Your pest control expert can leave traps and spray pesticide around the perimeter of your house to keep a reinfestation from occurring.Share
