Room Fumigation – Cockroaches
Is fumigation always necessary to exterminate cockroaches?
No one wants a cockroach as a house mate. These pests are can hide quite easily around the home, and if you see one, it probably means there are more around. Room fumigation is usually the only way to completely exterminate an infestation of cockroaches. It’s necessary to take these measures to control the spread diseases like staphylococcus and salmonella and to prevent allergies problems. An infestation of cockroaches needs to be dealt with as quickly as you can to insure the safety of you and your family.
How to prevent cockroaches
There are ways to make it harder for cockroaches to nest in your home. These pests need a food source, so any unsealed food products or crumbs are great incentives for cockroaches to come and stay. Cleaning up and storing food correctly will discourage them from coming. Also, take out the garbage on a regular basis and keep it in an outside sealed bin.
Water is also attractive to cockroaches, so prevent any sitting water like water bowls for your pets or pooled water in drains and sinks. Fix any dripping taps to help prevent the issue. Without water sources, a cockroach won’t stay around long.
To prevent cockroach breeding, spray surfaces often with insecticide. They may also stay in unexpected gaps around your home, so having a pest controller spray the areas around the home will expose hiding places that, without room fumigation, would go unknown.
