Cockroach infestations occur anywhere in your home. This includes kitchens and bathrooms, drain pipes and garbage disposal areas. In other words, they infest where bacteria are found.
Once roaches have infiltrated your home, they seek food sources and carry bacteria directly into these food-dense areas. This leads to food poisoning, diarrhea, dysentery, and other diseases. For more information, read our article on illnesses that a single cockroach infestation can carry.
These pests are also nocturnal, so you might not even realize you need immediate cockroach extermination until it’s too late. Roaches multiply rapidly, so small pest problems can quickly turn into sizeable cockroach infestations.
Cockroaches are so difficult to safely remove on your own. Worse still, infestations at home come with a variety of health hazards including salmonella poisoning. This is why it’s imperative to get rid of cockroaches as soon as possible.
Terminix Canada’s cockroach control technicians use safe, careful chemical treatments to kill roaches. Consequently, this minimizes the chance of future infestations to ensure your home is a secure and healthy environment.
