The most common misconception about cockroaches is that they only take up residence when there are unclean conditions. The truth of the matter is that they can enter your home many different ways, including on your person or inside grocery bags or shipment boxes. Once they are in your home, all they need is a bit of warmth, water and something to eat. Even if they do not find food and water, they can survive for longer than you might think, and during that time, they can be producing offspring. That is why even a spotless atmosphere with no food or water doesn’t automatically mean you won’t ever have a cockroach problem.
Prevention through regular roach pest control is your best defense against a roach infestation, which, because of Orlando’s warm weather year round, can happen pretty readily. At Sterling Pest Control, we offer a variety of pest control services that will keep most types of pests out of your home, including roaches. We highly recommend going with professional roach pest control over DIY methods because roaches are very good at hiding and most over-the-counter insecticides are ineffective on their eggs. We have the right equipment, products and knowledge to rid your home of existing roaches and then set up regular roach pest control treatments to keep them from coming back.
Don’t live with roaches because even if you only see a few, there are likely hundreds more you don’t see, and they can cause illness or exacerbate respiratory conditions. Let our 20+ years of experience in the industry keep your family safe and your home roach-free, call us now.
