Cockroaches are skilled hitchhikers. In fact, Kenyan cockroaches generally enter buildings first by mounting in boxes, on furniture and other items that enter the building. Most other cockroach species invade from outside or from sewers or drains.
Most cockroaches prefer to rest in wood rather than metal and other surfaces. That is why you will often find them living in wooden cabinets or cardboard boxes. The fecal material of Kenyan cockroaches contains a pheromone that tells other cockroaches that the area is a good place to house. A large number of cockroaches can congregate in areas where fecal material has accumulated. These areas are called aggregation points.
All dishes and food must be removed from the shelves before treating cockroaches. Good sanitation helps stress the cockroach population by making them more susceptible to treatments and baits.
In LANPEST we begin by inspecting and treating hiding places where cockroaches usually live together. This includes electric motors, electronic equipment, suspended ceilings, gaps in the walls and cracks and accessible gaps.
The vacuum can be used in some cases to provide an immediate reduction in the number of cockroaches. A variety of techniques and methods of application can be used to provide a comprehensive cockroach treatment, which includes cracks and cracks treatments, vacuum treatments and baits.
First, make sure that it is really about cockroaches. The cockroaches can be confused with other insects such as grasshopper, beetles or crickets. Cockroaches have wide, flat bodies with long antennae and long hind legs. Each of its six legs has small sensory hairs. Adult cockroaches have wings that fold over their backs, but not all cockroaches can fly. Most cockroaches are brown or black and can range from 0.07 inches to 3 inches long, depending on the species.

If you are watching a cockroach in your home , it is probably a Kenyan cockroach or a brown-stripped cockroach. These are the two most common unwelcome inhabitants of homes, buildings and structures.
While natural cockroach repellents can say they are effective, it is better to leave the treatment to professionals. Learn why home remedies do not work.
Although it is vital to have a pest management professional that provides you with a guarantee of treatment and protection (since cockroaches can return), the use of home remedies for cockroaches can help you provide temporary relief from these pests.
Here are some frequently asked questions about natural cockroach repellent and other DIY tips to help you get rid of cockroaches.
Some home remedies can take cockroaches out of sight, but they will rarely cure a cockroach infestation.
This is because cockroaches generally prefer dark areas that are protected from the sight, range or disruption of human beings. This makes many DIY cockroach remedies ineffective, unlike a pest control technician who has special methods to reach cockroaches, no matter where they try to run and hide. Still, you can find limited DIY success with the correct methods and applications.
What home remedies are the most popular?
There are many popular home remedies for cockroaches, but you must be careful and examine your sources. Many holistic remedies recommend mixtures of powders and liquids, such as baking soda and water. Other sources point to harmful substances that you do not want in your family, such as chlorinated hydrocarbons, which have been banned by the EPA. Still other “solutions” would make you run after cockroaches with soap and water, cucumber peels, citrus juice and bay leaves. Remember that the fact that something is the most popular home remedy does not mean that it is the best solution. When it comes to getting rid of cockroaches, the most effective solution is a pest control professional, because they get results where home remedies and other DIY concoctions fail.
Unfortunately, even a clean home can attract cockroaches. Cockroaches enter structures such as buildings and homes in search of food, water and shelter. As there will always be all three in your home, cockroaches will always seek comfort there, despite the successful DIY treatments. This is why a pest control professional is so important. The war against cockroaches must be continuous and the approach relentless.
The sprays cockroaches counter are not very effective to remove cockroaches from your home, just to keep it out of sight . Aerosols can act as a cockroach repellent for a short period of time., but by no means stop cockroaches forever. A cockroach spray rarely kills cockroaches unless direct contact is made with the insect. Aerosols do not stop the possible spread of diseases and infestations. In addition, over-the-counter cockroach sprays are rarely natural cockroach repellents, as they may contain harmful pesticides that may not be safe for you or your family (pets included). Always allow a pest control specialist to recommend, handle and distribute all pesticide-related materials to keep your family safe and without cockroaches in your home.
In addition to not always reaching the right areas in your home and possibly being harmful to your pets and family, home remedies for pests have other drawbacks. For example, if you live in a multi-family home, just treating your own living area is not enough. Another big problem with home remedies is that there is no guarantee that they will work. You can end up wasting time and money trying different “solutions”, just to finish right where you started, with a cockroach problem. A pest control professional will develop a battle plan to help keep your home free of pests in the near future.
