Do You Have a Roach Problem? Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Put off Hiring a Roach Control Service.
The sight of scurrying roaches as you switch on the kitchen lights at night is one the can fill some with high anxiety. Yet, there are things far worse than the sight itself. Roaches spread dangerous bacteria, contaminate your food, and survive DIY elimination attempts.
There are more than 4,000 cockroach species worldwide, but in America, we have two main types: American Cockroaches and German Cockroaches. American roaches are reddish-brown and grow to about 1.5 inches. They generally live outdoors in places like garbage heaps. German Cockroaches are light brown and less than an inch in size.
Cockroaches feed at night, so if you see one during the day, you likely have a significant infestation on your hands. They like dark, moist places and hide behind sinks, refrigerators, stoves, inside appliances, underfloor drains, within wall cracks, and behind wallpaper.
Infestations can be hard to prevent in areas where water is accessible, and food is prepared. Roaches have developed immunity to the aerosol sprays sold in stores and to DIY measures in general. They feed on practically anything, even the glue used for book covers, which is why people see them scurrying on and around their bookshelves. Because they consume waste, they contaminate everything they come into contact with on a property.
A study published on the website of the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health reveals 38 fungi species were recovered from the American, German, and Brown Banded Cockroaches. The global trend of fungal roach contamination was 50.6-84.1 in human dwelling environments. Roach fungi contamination is associated with high morbidity in immune-compromised individuals. However, fungi are dangerous pathogens that can damage your health even if your immune system is stable. These facts, along with increasing roach infestation and insecticide resistance emergence, reveal an urgent need to bring these insects under control professionally. What's more, Southeast Texas is a semi-tropical area, and roaches thrive in our mild winters and humid environment.
