There are many methods for ridding one’s home of roaches. One of the more common methods for homeowners trying to do it themselves is a cockroach trap, sometimes called “roach motels.” These devices work because of an adhesive inside them, the roach crawls over it and gets stuck. However, if the nest is in your home, and chances are it is, this method provides little to no protection.
Another method commonly used is the insecticide spray. Normally one would spray alongside vents, cracks, or wherever it is suspected that roaches might be entering your home. It is a good idea to keep your pets and children away from these sprays, this way you don’t run the risk of poisoning either.
If these methods do not work, then you probably have more than an unwelcomed visitor. You most likely have an unwelcomed nest of visitors, which is best handled by a professional. Poisons can be deadly to your pets and your small children. If you are not trained to handle these then a “Do It Yourself” approach might end up costing you more than any amount of money could ever be worth. This is why you should call your nearest Sandy Springs pest control professional as soon as possible, this way you can have your home, pet, and child safely secured from nasty cockroaches.
