December 11, 2022 - Cockroaches
Virginia is renowned for its woodlands, colorful valleys, and plentiful rivers. Many people agree that Virginia is indeed for lovers, and for good reason. Unfortunately, Virginia is also for cockroaches, and they are found in great numbers all over the state. As far as cockroaches are concerned, your house is for them, and they will happily move in whether you invited them or not.

The Species Of Cockroaches That Invade Homes
There are several types of cockroaches, but not all of them like to invade inside spaces. The species of cockroaches that like to invade indoor spaces include:
- German cockroach: This pest is number one for infesting homes.
- Brown-banded cockroach: This roach is less common, but still loves your house.
- Oriental cockroach: This cockroach also loves indoor spaces.
Regardless of which cockroach decides to visit your home, Miche Pest Control is sure that you are not happy to have them there. Contact us today to discuss how we can help you keep all cockroach species away from your house. We know how to eliminate cockroaches in homes!
Cockroaches Are Known To Spread Harmful Pathogens
Cockroach control is critical for maintaining your home at its best, and for keeping you safe. Cockroaches are not picky; they will live anywhere, and the nastier it is, the happier they are. The only problem is that cockroaches are not particularly concerned about dragging that nastiness into your home. Cockroaches are experts at dragging disease-causing organisms into your home, including enterococcus, E. coli, listeria, campylobacter, and salmonella. They are also known to provoke asthma and allergies.
It is bad enough that cockroaches come into your home uninvited, but they also do not care one bit about your safety. That is why Miche Pest Control offers pest control for roaches — to get them out of your house for good. Call us today and let us help you with all of your pest control needs, including cockroaches!
How And Why Cockroaches Find Their Way Into Our Home
What attracts cockroaches to your home, and how do they get in? Food and water are the most attractive aspects of your home. Roaches will come into your home looking for food and water, and if they find a bounty, they are bound to stay. Roaches gain access to your home by either riding in on merchandise or other things you bring into the home, or by exploiting gaps, cracks, or spaces on the outside of your house. Seal up all outside openings on your home’s exterior, and keep all food sources inside the home sealed up to help discourage roaches from entering your home, and from staying once they get there.
Roaches aren’t attractive, but your home is — to roaches. Miche Pest Control thinks that it is ugly that roaches come in uninvited, and we want to work with you on getting rid of them. Call us at the first signs of cockroach infestation!
Professional Cockroach Control Is The Way To Go For Homes
Cockroaches carry diseases, and they do not care if they carry those diseases to you. They will readily infest your home, foul your food, and make a mess everywhere they go. That is, if you let them. If you reject that proposition, contact Miche Pest Control as soon as you see roaches. We are seasoned professionals, and we know how to handle cockroaches, for good!
