cockroachs - Pest Control in Holland, MI

Cockroaches have to be one of the most unwanted visitors a household can have. They can adapt to many environments from arctic weather to tropical heat. Cockroaches thrive in warm, dark, wet areas where they will reproduce. They hide in cracks and crevices, such as behind refrigerators, under sinks, and in dark cabinets, and come out at night to feed. They eat a variety of food items as well as non-food items. This means, they can thrive in the cleanest of homes. To make matters worse, disease-producing organisms such as bacteria, protozoans, and viruses have been discovered on the bodies of cockroaches. The primary diseases transmitted by German cockroaches include different forms of gastroenteritis (food poisoning, dysentery, diarrhea, and other illnesses). If you think you and your family could be at risk of an infestation, call Empire Pest Control to stop the lasting effects of these creepy-crawly creatures of the night.

IDENTIFICATION

How to identify cockroachs

Cockroaches have bodies that are oily, wide, and flattened. Their heads are small and covered by a shield-like pronotum. The most common species found in West Michigan is the German cockroach. German cockroaches vary in color, from a tan to a reddish-brown and have 6 long, spiny legs. They tend to show themselves in a dark setting, but for significant infestations, cockroaches are more likely to thrive in your house anywhere, at any time of the day. Once a colony is established, droppings may appear in the corners of cupboards and drawers.

Health Concerns

Damage caused by cockroachs

While cockroaches cause less structural damage in comparison to termites, the main concern about cockroaches is their ability to spread disease and cause serious sanitation issues. They get in food, and once that food is consumed, is where disease is most likely to occur. They also can create an oily-like smell where their nest is laid. When the infestation is removed, the smell can linger in your home for long periods of time afterwards.

I highly recommend Empire Pest Control! We live on a lake and deal with a variety of insect issues. Terry was able to take care of everything. He is knowledgeable and does excellent work.
