Killing roaches and keeping them out can be a seemingly impossible task. But with persistence you can get your roach problem under control. Most home owners have taken proven and effective measures to control roach infestations, but all home owners should be aware of the dangerous germs and diseases that roaches carry.
The most effective treatment to control roach infestations, is a combination of several of these methods. By using bait traps, boric acid, and high grade pest controls at the same time, you are sure to catch the bugs that seem to resist certain measures. The effect of using several methods simultaneously will be quickly realized.
The combined method treatment is the best way to keep roaches from returning. Even if only one of the solutions is used to kill the bugs, and it is effective in ridding the nest, it may take a mixture of methods to keep them away. The reason for this is that some roaches have already developed a degree of resistance to some poisons. So you may get rid of your current infestation only to make room for another breed that has already developed an immunity to the pesticide you used.
Using several poisons, and traps and boric acid is the best way to insure that you not only get rid of your roach problem, but you don’t pave the way for another more resistant breed of roaches.
The most important thing to consider is that you must be proactive in the fight against these pests. By looking for them before you see the infestation, you can kill them before they build a nest, and before they begin to hatch eggs. Roaches have a strong survival nature, but they are not immortal. They can be killed and they can be kept away.
Not only can they be controlled, they must be controlled. Roaches carry a wide variety of serious germs and diseases like salmonella. They also secrete allergens into the air that can be harmful to the health of everyone in the home.
Places where children about such as nurseries or day care centers must be even more proactive in pest prevention. Whatever method or mixture of methods you use, be sure to act quickly for the health and safety of your family. If you don’t feel you can adequately handle the problem, please hire a professional exterminator. They have learned all of the tried and true ways of killing roaches.
