Cockroach Control St George

Have you seen a cockroach in or around your home? Even if you have only seen one or two of these nasty insects so far that is enough reason to call Nielson Pest Solutions and request a treatment for cockroach control St George.

Cockroaches make their colonies inside cracks in the foundation and sidewalk, gaps found within walls or between the walls and furniture, appliances, or cupboards. They like tight, enclosed spaces, so anywhere that they can hide away during the day, and have room to breed is a potential spot for a cockroach colony. The colony, or “intrusion” as a group of cockroaches is called, can have hundreds of bugs all crammed together in one place, or spread out in various hiding spots. Cockroaches only leave their group during the day if they have been kicked out, and that only happens when there isn’t any more room. If you see any cockroaches in your home, then you probably have an infestation.

How to tell if you need professional cockroach control St George
One of the first things that tips people off is that they may have a cockroach problem and might need cockroach control St George help is when they notice a bad odor in the home. Cockroaches shed skin, die, and poop regularly, and as their refuse breaks down and is moved about by the colony it begins to get into the air of the home and pollute it.

Homeowners might also notice droppings, streak marks, or even translucent egg capsules on their walls, floor, and furniture, or around food that has been left out overnight, or around water sources like sinks and tubs.

The biggest giveaway that there is a high likelihood of an already existing infestation is seeing a living or dead roach inside your home. One cockroach is too many. If you see a cockroach or signs that you might have them, call Nielson Pest Solutions. We will send someone out to assess your situation and help you make a plan to get the intrusion out of your home with our professional cockroach control St George services.

The males also have four little pointy bits near the tips of their abdomens which are a pair of styli and cerci.

Habitats: Oriental cockroaches will generally be found in dark, damp areas. Around the outside of the home, they are known to congregate near garbage, underneath sidewalks, and in sewer pipes. In the home, they are most likely to be found under sinks, in basements or crawl spaces, in floor drains, or anywhere in the home that might be damp from a leak.

Issues: Oriental cockroaches enjoy a high-starch diet and will dig through sewage, garbage, and other waste and decaying matter to find it. They will also go after any food that is left out in the open, and spread bacteria and other germs that they have picked up wherever they go.

Habitats: The American cockroach likes to be where it can find large quantities of available food.

It will go wherever it can find sufficient resources to live and in homes, it is likely to hang out around water pipes, sinks, baths, and other areas where moisture is in good supply. American cockroaches do not like sunlight and will seek dark, or shaded areas to lie low in during the day. For residential areas, they are known to be a bigger problem outdoors than indoors.

Issues: American cockroaches are known carriers of pathogens, bacteria, viruses, worms, and many other nasty contaminants and parasites that are bad for humans. They get these from their time spent crawling through garbage and sewers. Having them around your home or business is a potentially serious health risk to anyone visiting your property.

German Cockroach Control St George

Identification: German cockroaches look a lot like Brown-banded cockroaches, except that they are missing the two bands, and instead of two darker bands that run parallel to each other down the length of the body. The males are slimmer than the females and have a tapered abdomen. The females also have an additional set of wings called tegmina which cover the majority of their body and their other pair of wings.

Habitats: German Cockroaches are domestic in that they live almost exclusively inside buildings. They need warm temperatures to survive, and very few if any live out in the wild because of this. However, they make up for their lack of presence in the outside world by being a super nuisance in the inside world. German cockroaches are the most abundant cockroach species in America and many other parts of the world.

Issues: German cockroaches can breed and populate much faster than other cockroach species. They are perpetually reproducing during their adult cycle and can produce up to 48 eggs per egg capsule. Female German cockroaches have been known to produce up to 384 young in their lifetime. They are omnivorous and will eat human food, pet food, and anything made out of starch.

Studies show that they can induce psychological stress in humans.
