cockroachs - Pest Control in Holland, MI

Cockroaches have to be one of the most unwanted visitors a household can have. These large termites can adapt to many environments from arctic weather to tropical heat. Cockroaches thrive in warm, dark, wet areas such as sewers or basements. 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, cockroaches can carry some serious diseases such as Salmonella Typhi, (which causes Typhoid), Poliomyelitis (which causes Polio), and Dysentery, which is a disease that causes severe diarrhea that may include bleeding. If you think you and your family could be at risk of an infestation, call Empire Pest to stop the lasting effects of these creepy-crawly creatures of the night.

How to identify cockroachs

Cockroaches have bodies that are oily, wide, and flattened. Their heads are small and covered by a shield-like pronotum. American household cockroaches are 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. You also may notice small droppings in your house, which could be evidence of cockroaches invading your home in the night.

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.

How Empire Pest Control tackles a cockroach infestation

First, we will use a gel bait that contains various insecticides to effectively poison the cockroaches. If necessary, we will dust a chemical acid over exposed surfaces.
