Roaches prefer dark places and tend to be nocturnal. When seen in significant numbers during the day, the population typically has become so large that the dark places they prefer can no longer contain them. There are always more than you see, and they breed fast. The over-the-counter pesticides sold in retail stores may prove ineffective against larger numbers, and can even make getting rid of roaches more difficult. That is because the roaches can develop resistance to chemicals that are used frequently or improperly.
When working with an Atlanta pest control specialist to get rid of roaches, a multilevel approach is most effective. First, the roaches will be chemically flushed out of their hiding places and killed. Then, the stage can be set for the extermination of the next generation, the eggs and nymphs left behind, such as with poisoned bait. However, scrupulous attention to cleanliness on the part of each member of the household will be required to complement your Atlanta pest control professional's extermination efforts.
Preventing roaches is far easier than getting rid of them. A Brookhaven pest control specialist can be a valuable partner in prevention. A professional consultation can point out vulnerabilities around the home, such as water leaks inside or underneath the dwelling, cracks in the foundation that roaches can crawl through or potential nesting spots, such as in the hollow space underneath the floor of a lower kitchen or bathroom cabinet. Professional help is commonly the fastest, most effective way of dealing with roaches.
