Cockroach Pest Control Fort Worth

Wednesday, May 21, 2014 | Mid-Cities Pest Control

Cockroaches are one of the most common pest complaints in any area of the country, including Fort Worth. After a rain, particularly, they just seem to find their way into our homes, wreaking havoc on our nerves and patience. To win the war on cockroaches, let’s learn a little about them for proper pest control. If you would rather not learn more about these pests, simply stop reading and call us right away!

Cockroaches can enter our homes in many different ways, from outside through cracks and crevices, vents, sewer and drain pipes, and even on bags, boxes, or even on ourselves! Cockroaches love your home because there is warmth, plenty of breeding ground, and food. They can stay active year-round because of these amenities you provide them. They also reproduce quickly, so if you see one, there are most likely many, many more behind your walls.

Cockroaches can irritate allergies, even asthma in some people because of the dropping, cast-off skins, or dead bodies, so it is important to get the problem alleviated as soon as possible. Using homemade remedies or over-the-counter insecticides are probably not strong enough to completely mitigate the problem, as their eggs are naturally protected from you and these particular chemicals. Without specific pest control equipment, materials, and know-how, cockroach control can be a losing battle.

The best way to deter roaches from infesting your home is to put away food that has been left out and taken away any water sources. Pest control companies can do the dirty work, using desiccants, insect growth regulators, specially-developed sprays, aerosols, foggers, or emulsifiable concentrates to combat your cockroach problem.

Call us today to take a look at your home. If you have seen one cockroach in the evening, chances are it has been overcrowded and there are many more at bay. Get the problem resolved before you have a real infestation on your hands.
