Cockroach Treatment in Kansas City
Time is of the essence when it comes to the cockroach. These small insects are quite filthy and are notorious for carrying diseases with them. Ignoring a cockroach infestation means you could be putting members of your house or business property at risk. Cockroaches also create havoc as their droppings create allergy issues along with asthma problems.
How does an infestation begin?
Just because you have cockroaches doesn't reflect anything about you or your home. It's that a home’s environment is the perfect place for roaches to reproduce as all of their requirements are easily met and they stay protected. The most common way they enter the home is through a bag or box brought in from a location infested with cockroaches. They can also enter your home through cracks, vents, and pipes.
If you see a cockroach during the day you need to call us immediately. They are nocturnal so if one is out in the daylight it means their nest has overcrowded and they are looking for a new place to nest and reproduce. We can not overstate how fast they reproduce, especially if they are German Cockroaches which a single female can produce over 30,000 offspring per year by herself.
What do you do when you find a cockroach?
Unfortunately, store-bought solutions are typically not effective. By the time you see a roach in your home, there are hundreds (or thousands) of eggs hidden in extremely difficult places to get to.
