Pests can wreak havoc on your home and yard. Exterminators from qualified, Eco-friendly pest control use different methods to eradicate each unwanted visitor. Household pests can be tough to eliminate, and can cause allergies, asthma, and even other illnesses. Extermination services are meant to purge your home of these disease-carrying invaders permanently.


Why are some pest such as roaches so difficult to remove without professional help?


Its often been said that roaches could survive a nuclear disaster. There are also statements that they have existed since prehistoric times. Although we hope this is only an exaggeration, pests are stubborn and difficult to get rid of without a trained professional. Cockroaches are some of the most primitive winged insects. They reproduce quickly and can survive for an entire month without food or water.



Simple- keep your house clean, only eat it the kitchen or dining room, don’t leave food out. This should keep your home pest free.. right?




Although pests are attracted to food and water, they do not need it to survive. Roaches for example, eat materials such as paper, straw, and even leaves. Honestly, they will eat just about anything they can find in your home, or lurking nearby. Often times, one roach sighting, means there are hundreds more hiding in the shadows. These nocturnal creatures can be hard to detect, as their main focus is to remain hidden out of light.


To minimize the chances of pesky roaches and similar pests, keep your household as clean as possible. Wiping down kitchen counters, storing food in airtight containers, and washing dishes and utensils immediately after meals can help prevent a roach infestation. Without food left in plain sight, many pests will search for a new home, where they can gain quick and easy access to the yummy leftovers on the pile of dishes left in the sink.  


However, following good housekeeping rules is not always enough..

Insects may enter your kitchen or other rooms through small vents or cracks in walls, underneath sinks, and even the little space left around the gas and drain pipe. They also tend to enter houses when vegetation outside has grown to thick. Always be sure to trim plants and shrubs in your garden or yard, and make sure vegetation is not in contact with the walls of your home.


An exterminator can help advise you of these problem area in hopes to help prevent future pest invasions.


DIY Pest Control?


The dilemma is that when rats or cockroaches have reached rampant proportion, it is hard to contain them anymore using only tools that are available. Simply spraying for pesticides and laying down poisons is not an effective form of pest control in many cases. Its like emptying the ocean using only a spoon. Plus, these sprays can have many harmful chemicals that are dangerous to your pets, and family! Rats and roaches continue to breed so rapidly they can replace those killed, by the next day. It is a losing battle, and the only way to win is to solve the problem all at once. The best way to do this is by calling a professional for help.


No matter what stage your infestation is at, its better not to keep taking chances. These intruders are bringing bacteria and diseases into your home, and tracking them throughout the household.
