Cockroaches are a common sight. They are hardy, durable insects, and thrive in all environments. Dirty, unclean environments do not bother them; in fact, roaches love places like that. Urban environments, loaded with food, water and shelter opportunities, particularly suit them. They are counted as one of the major pests in urban areas all over the world. Is your house warm, dry, and full of lovely food? Roaches think so, and they want to share it with you.

You don’t have to make space for cockroaches in your home. Call Miche Pest Control today to see how we can be your pest control experts of choice. Cockroach control is one of our specialties.

Sure Signs You Have A Cockroach Infestation

Here are some handy ways to tell if cockroaches are sharing your home:

  • You see them: You see roaches, either live or dead. See one? There are more.
  • You find egg cases: Generally found in quiet, dark places, these are a sure sign.
  • You see droppings: Dark specks around food are roach droppings, a definite sign.
  • You see dark spots on walls: Dark spots, especially high up, may indicate roaches.
  • You see smudges: Generally, you see them around baseboards, near floors.

Roaches are a consistent concern in homes, and you can get them no matter how clean your house is. Miche Pest Control knows all about pest control for roaches. Call us, and let us team with you to remove roaches from your home.

How Roaches Spread Around Dangerous Pathogens

One of the worst aspects about roaches and health is that roaches absolutely love being in dirty, nasty environments. They will move between the house, garbage cans, and things like dead animals or animal droppings without any hesitation whatsoever, and they are commonly associated with spreading salmonellosis, E. coli infections, campylobacteriosis, listeriosis, and giardiasis. They tend to foul food, and diseases can be spread to you even if roaches simply crawl across your countertops.

Miche Pest Control wants you to be safe in your home, and does not want you to have to worry about health issues associated with roach infestations. Contact us today if you see roaches, or want to make sure you don’t.

The Best Way To Get Rid Of A Cockroach Infestation In Your Home

Because roaches hide everywhere in a home, if you see signs of cockroach infestation it’s critical to not only treat the ones you see, but the ones you don’t see as well. You also need to investigate to see where and how roaches are getting into your house. DIY methods rarely effectively cover all of these areas, and leave you at risk of not getting rid of the roaches you have, and also not preventing future roach infestations. Without knowing what attracts cockroaches to your house, you may unwittingly have a roach welcome sign on your home.

You don’t want roaches coming to your home, and if they have, you definitely want them to leave. Miche Pest Control has an extended history of getting rid of pesky roaches, and we can do the same for you! Call us today to explore our extensive experience, and put it to work for you.

Naturally Effective Ways To Prevent Roaches In Your Home

Here are some natural ways to help prevent roaches in your home:

  • Keep a clean house. Food and crumbs attract roaches. If you're providing easy access to food, roaches have no reason to leave.
  • Keep an orderly house. The more places roaches can hide, the better — for them.
  • Seal up your home. The harder it is for roaches to get in through cracks, holes, or gaps, the more likely they will move on.
  • Let in fresh air. Warm, stale air, especially if damp, makes roaches happy. 

These methods can help reduce cockroach concerns in your home, but nothing can guarantee that roaches will stay away. If you see roaches, or suspect that you have them, Contact Miche Pest Control today. We know how to find cockroaches, and we know how to kill cockroaches.

Customer Reviews

I switched from another pest control company due to high pressure sales/bad billing practices, and switched to Miche. They have been excellent. Excellent customer service, very effective pest treatments, competitive pricing. I highly recommend.
