German cockroaches are one of the pests that we deal with on a daily basis. These pests come into your home as hitchhikers. That means that they usually ride in on things like cardboard boxes, bags, etc. Not only are they unsightly, but they can also cause a host of medical issues you may not be aware of. They can trigger asthma attacks as well as cause a number of gastrointestinal issues like food poisoning. They carry bacteria on their bodies and can deposit them on the food you eat. Staying on top of your cleaning habits can help deter them from setting up shop in your home. Most of the time it only takes one. It’s important to address the issue as soon as you think you have a problem. Controlling a german cockroach invasion isn’t as easy as spraying your home. Using bait in high roach traffic areas is the best course of action. Hope this helps and if you suspect you have a pest issue, give us a call at 318-286-0967 and we’d be happy to help!
