Stop Cockroaches From Invading Your Waldorf Home
When you live in a place like Maryland, you grow accustomed to the presence of certain pests. You know you'll encounter mosquitoes in your yard in the summer and a spider or two in the corners of your ceilings in the fall. When pests that aren't as familiar show up in your house, the unknown can make the situation feel a little bit scarier. While you know the risks that go along with a mosquito bite, you might not be aware of all the problems these new pests might cause.
Although most people are well aware of cockroaches, fewer people have firsthand experience dealing with a cockroach infestation. You might know that cockroaches are gross, but you might not know that they spread dozens of harmful bacteria and many other types of pathogens. You might have heard stories about how cockroaches could theoretically withstand a nuclear attack but may not be aware that they can also be tricky to eliminate when they get into your house.
Regardless of what you do or don't know about cockroaches if you've found one in your house, it's almost guaranteed there are others hidden somewhere in your home. Because getting rid of a cockroach infestation is vital to your family's health, you don't want to wait to get the help you need. The best home pest control for roaches in your Waldorf home is done by the professionals at Mike's Pest, Termite and Wildlife Control. Without the proper treatment, a roach infestation will only grow larger. At Mike's Pest, Termite and Wildlife Control, we provide comprehensive service to fully rid your house of every cockroach inside it.
Our Cockroach Control Service
Cockroaches are pests that prefer to stay out of sight, so identifying the signs of a cockroach infestation is not always easy. Of course, spotting a live cockroach is a good indication of a problem, but you can also look for cockroach droppings, which look similar to pepper flakes, smear marks along walls or inside cabinets, eggs, and shed skins. Other signs of a cockroach infestation include the unpleasant, musty odor they give off or a sudden onset of allergy and asthma symptoms in any of your family members.
If you notice any of these signs, contact Mike's Pest, Termite and Wildlife Control. We'll visit your home to perform a thorough inspection so that we can determine if cockroaches are present. Using our experience, we'll look in bathrooms, your kitchen, under countertops, behind appliances, inside cabinets, in damp areas, in the warming drawer under your oven, and more. If cockroaches are in your house, we will find them.
If we determine that you do have a cockroach infestation, treatment has to occur in order to get rid of the problem. Cockroach pest control is best performed by professionals because we know where and how to treat them and what products to use to deliver the safest and most effective results. Before we can provide a cockroach treatment, there is some prep work to complete. Please view our cockroach control prep sheet for more details. Depending on the situation, you may be able to do the prep work immediately so we can begin the treatment on the same day as the inspection.
Our treatments are comprehensive and designed around the habits and biology of cockroaches. We begin by placing pheromone traps. These traps help monitor the infestation during future inspections to determine the threshold level. We'll then use a variety of treatment methods to eliminate your infestation completely. These treatments include:
- Gel baits that we strategically apply, monitor, and change periodically to ensure the cockroaches do not develop a resistance to them.
- Non-repellent liquid insecticides to stop cockroach growth.
- Mechanical methods, such as vacuuming, to flush out live cockroaches and remove eggs.
- Dust in cracks, crevices, and wall voids.
- Small exclusion work to fill entry points.
Because a cockroach infestation can be difficult to eliminate, it takes more than a one-time treatment to fix the issue. We'll return to your home on a monthly basis to inspect and re-treat until we are certain we've fully resolved your cockroach problem.
