Frequently Asked Questions About Cockroaches

What are cockroaches?

Cockroaches are notorious insects known for their adaptable behavior, prolific nature, and the health problems they bring to the properties they invade. In our area, there are two main types of cockroaches to keep an eye out for – the German cockroach and the American cockroach.

While German cockroaches are smaller, tan or light brown, and have two dark stripes down their back, American cockroaches grow up to two inches in length and are reddish-brown to dark brown in color. If you need assistance with cockroach identification, contact Gannon Pest Control for assistance and removal solutions right away.

Are cockroaches dangerous?

Cockroaches are one of the most dangerous pests that you can deal with around your property. These insects are known for the bacteria and pathogens they spread around interior and exterior areas as they scavenge for food and shelter. The diseases cockroaches carry include serious illnesses such as cholera, dysentery, listeriosis, and salmonella.

Additionally, cockroach infestations may trigger allergic reactions and asthma issues as they run around your property and leave behind their salvia, shed skins, egg cases, and droppings. This pest easily contaminates food and food storage areas, leading to major problems and disease risks.

Roach pest control is the easiest and most reliable way to avoid these dangers and protect your property.

Why do I have a cockroach problem?

Cockroaches, like many other pests, tend to be drawn to properties that are hospitable to them. This means that if your property has plenty of easily accessible food, moisture, and sheltering spaces, you are likely to encourage a cockroach infestation. Removing access to these attractants will help you defeat and prevent widespread infestations.
