Cockroaches

Business & Home Pest Control Solution

Cockroach

Cockroaches will never stop trying to get into your home or business for food, water and shelter. And since they’re nocturnal creatures adept at hiding, an infestation can get out of hand before you ever realize it. Cockroaches are able to go for so long without sustenance because they’re cold blooded insects. However, they can only survive for one week without water, which is why they’re commonly found in humid or high moisture areas.

These facts prove that cockroaches are some of the most adaptable creatures on earth, which makes controlling and eliminating a cockroach infestation all the more difficult. Cockroach control and management are important for health and safety reasons. If you suspect a cockroach infestation, contact Great Lakes Pest Control Company. We are here to Help!

Cockroaches Prevention Tips

To get rid of cockroaches experts suggest keeping food sealed and stored properly, particularly in kitchens, which should be cleaned daily to prevent crumbs and trash from building up. Garbage should be disposed of regularly and stored in sealed containers. Seal all cracks and holes in structures including entry points for utilities and pipes, as these can serve as entrance ways for the pest. In addition, basements and crawl spaces should be kept well ventilated and dry.
