Why You Should Call The Pros About Roaches In Your Mooresville Home

If you find a cockroach in your house, what should you do?  Should you purchase some cockroach control products and go after those roaches on your own or should you contact a licensed pest professional? The on-staff pest control experts here at Lake Norman Home Services want you to understand that pest roaches warrant investing in professional cockroach pest control. Let's take a look at why professional cockroach control is essential and what types of cockroaches in Mooresville require this level of control.


The Cockroaches That Invade Mooresville Homes

In our service area, we have several cockroach species. The first step in dealing with roaches is proper cockroach identification. Only a handful are considered to be pest roaches and a health concern. The brown-hooded cockroach is an example of a mostly harmless roach. If you see these roaches in your yard, you don't need to be too concerned. They feed mostly on decaying wood, which contains cellulose, and they prefer to live outside.

If, on the other hand, you see German, American, Oriental, or brown-banded cockroaches, it is likely that these roaches will present a health threat to you and your family. You should definitely contact a professional to deal with pest roaches if you see them in your yard or in your home. Pest roaches are difficult to control, and professionals use field-tested methods and trusted cockroach control products to get this difficult job done.

The Dangers That Cockroaches Bring To Mooresville Homes

Pest roaches are dirty insects. They get into garbage, feed on rotting organic matter and feces, climb around in sewers, and move about in very dirty places. This is why they are associated with the spread of more than 33 kinds of bacteria, over 7 other human pathogens, and at least 6 kinds of parasitic worms. This is a health threat that should be properly addressed by a licensed pest professional. We strongly recommend professional cockroach pest control for pest roaches.

Why It's So Hard To Get Rid Of Roaches In Mooresville Homes

If you find a cockroach in your house, there are a few things you should know about them.

  • Roaches work together to avoid foods that are dangerous. If you put bait down, and the roaches realize the bait is a threat to them, they will develop bait aversion. Professionals use methods that counteract this defensive behavior.
  • Some pest roaches, like German cockroaches, have some populations that are born with bait aversion. Professionals are trained in cockroach identification and use the correct products and methods for the targeted cockroach species. If these are the roaches being targeted, it may be necessary to do a cockroach clean-out.
  • Roaches are robust animals that can survive exposure to toxic chemicals. When they do, they may shed their skins and develop new skins that provide them even more protection. This happens on a genetic level. So, it is possible that the cockroaches in your Mooresville home are already resistant to chemical products you may use to try to get rid of them. When chemical products are administered by professionals, a cocktail of products is used to make sure that no roaches evade the treatments.
  • Cockroaches are drawn to very tight spaces and they move through dark voids within walls, ceilings, and floors. In hidden places, such as subflooring, it is difficult to directly target these insects. Residents often lay down products, such as borates, in the hopes that roaches will be exposed to them when they come out of hiding. Unfortunately, these products have little impact on cockroaches because pest roaches avoid them. Borates are a great example of bad roach control. Cockroaches cling to tiny dents, cracks, and pits on surfaces. When borate powder covers a surface, roaches can't grip the surface. Therefore, they avoid areas that have been powdered. Professionals understand cockroach behavior and physiology and deploy products that are known to work.
