Comprehensive Cockroach Control For Your Richmond Home
Cockroach infestations aren't fun to deal with regardless of the species; the American cockroach is particularly troublesome for the residents of Richmond and the surrounding area.
At Allied Termite and Pest Control of Greater Richmond, we carefully work with you to identify the source of your cockroach problem and eliminate them from the property. Even better, we'll keep them from making a return appearance so you can live cockroach-free without fail.
Our Cockroach Control Process
The key to eliminating cockroaches in no time is to approach with care and a sense of urgency. This is why we always begin with a comprehensive inspection before getting to work. During the inspection, we check for:
- Food sources
- Water sources
- Point of entry
- Hot spots
- Signs of activity
Once the inspection is complete, we get to work. Primarily, we concentrate on the exterior of your home and the foundation. However, we take care to address all problem areas in order to provide the complete solution you need to become roach-free.
After treatment, we'll discuss with you ways to prevent future infestations so you remain protected at all times. Many of our prevention tips work for other pests as well.
Signs Of A Cockroach Infestation
Are you unsure whether or not you have an active infestation? We've put together some helpful ways to identify one, so you can take action sooner rather than later. Pay attention to the following signs:
- Cockroach sighting: If you see one roach, you have an active infestation without exception.
- Noticeable smell: If you smell a strong, musky odor, then it's highly likely you have a roach infestation.
- Shed skins and droppings: If you notice shed skins or droppings similar to mouse droppings, you most likely have cockroaches in your home.
Richmond Roaches Are Difficult To Eliminate On Your Own
You might be tempted to try handling roaches on your own, but this is a mistake which will cost you money and time. Some reasons for this include, but aren't limited to, the following:
- Excellent hiders
- Fast reproduction
- Can't be starved out
- Pesticide resistance
- Tough exoskeletons
For these reasons and more, it's always better to leave American cockroach control in the hands of trained professionals like our team at Allied Termite and Pest Control of Greater Richmond.
