There are few prospects more horrifying than learning that your home is infested by cockroaches. Your skin is probably crawling, just at the thought of it. A single cockroach is one of the most repulsive insects that most people in the St. Augustine area will ever come across – having an infestation of cockroaches in your home can be horrifying, especially since they can be so difficult to remove. Fortunately, you don’t have to deal with this infestation on your own. Insecta Exterminating is your St. Augustine cockroach extermination expert, and we will have these disgusting pests out of your home in no time.
Seeing a single cockroach does not necessarily mean you have a cockroach infestation. However, cockroaches are nocturnal animals, so seeing one during the daytime may indicate an infestation and should prompt you to investigate further. Cockroaches prefer dark, moist habitats and can be found behind or underneath appliances like refrigerators and stoves, as well as inside floor drains, closets, and cupboards. In the case of an infestation, there will also be visible cockroach feces. Large cockroaches leave droppings that are roughly the size of a grain of rice, similar to mouse droppings, which will be clearly visible anywhere the cockroaches have been spending time.
Cockroaches are every bit as tough as their reputation gives them credit for. It’s much easier to prevent cockroaches from setting up camp in your home than it is to get rid of them once they’re there. That said, here at Insecta Exterminating, we have the tools and the know how to dispose of these pests quickly and safely, using a series of methods that include removing their access to food and water, traps, and even pesticides. If you have a cockroach infestation, give us a call right away. Everyone deserves peace of mind, and we’re here to help.
