Roaches can live up to three months without food and a month without water, but it may be easy to meet these requirements in a residential or commercial kitchen. We know roaches aren’t welcome in your space, but you may accidentally invite them in with readily available food, water, and shelter. We treat these pests by repeatedly weakening their harborage areas to eliminate the colony altogether. There are some steps you can take to help reduce your chance of an infestation.
Roaches will eat anything available to them, but they prefer starches, sweets, and greasy foods like meat. These simple food scraps may be found on dirty dishes, garbage, or crumby counters. Removing this attraction before going to bed at night can reduce your chance of roaches.
During the cold weather, your home or business may be more vulnerable to roaches because they seek shelter during low temperatures. Roaches don’t like the light, so they’ll hide under large appliances, in basement corners, and in the attic. Periodically clean these areas and prevent clutter so they can’t find the shelter they want.
Leaky pipes, pet water bowls, and open showers provide the water that roaches need to survive. Ensure your plumbing system is strong against leaks and use our maintenance program to create a firm boundary against these pests.
It’s easy to think of pest control as a one-and-done service, but it is often easy for roaches to hide. You may need multiple treatments or techniques to eliminate these pests. It’s common to feel like roaches come out more after a treatment, but this isn’t true. Don’t let them continue to leave trails across your space when Sawyer Termite & Pest Control is ready to help you.
Here are a few reasons your roach infestation may need multiple treatments:
- A significant level of infestation
- It’s been two weeks since a service, and you’ve seen no improvement
- You’ve had a reinfestation
There are a few ways to maintain the efficiency of treatments. Though it can be tempting to clean immediately after treatment, it’s critical that you wait a day or more, so you don’t accidentally remove the chemicals that will eliminate the roaches. Also, stop visiting treated areas, as you may accidentally remove the applied chemicals.
