Cockroaches in Palm Beach County, FL
Cockroaches are unfortunately one of the bugs that you might have to deal with if you live in Boca Raton. Most people would agree that cockroaches are pretty disgusting. Because of this there is a stigma that the only way someone gets cockroaches in their house is if they are unclean.
This is absolutely not true. While unclean homes will certainly attract their fair share of cockroaches and other pests, sometimes there is nothing you can do to keep from being overrun.
Our Boca Raton cockroach specialists have reported a spike in the number of people having cockroaches who keep their homes clean. This often happens if you live in an apartment or within close quarters to someone who has cockroaches. When your neighbor moves out, they take with them the never ending supply of food.
This has been especially true as we have seen an increase in foreclosed homes. Once the cockroaches eat the food in a foreclosed home they’ll come looking for food in your house next. Lucky for you, cockroaches are only a temporary problem. If they are attacked aggressively you can get rid of them.
Cockroaches adapt easily, which means that they’re able to survive in conditions where most other pests could not. This can sometimes make cockroaches difficult to detect and exterminate. Not only are Boca Raton cockroaches disgusting and unsanitary, but they also pose a significant health risk to humans.
Cockroaches carry bacteria, which is easily transferred to humans when they walk across and thus contaminate items such as dishes, kitchen surfaces, and food itself. In humans, this can cause food poisoning and diarrhea.
The best way to prevent cockroaches, and any pest for that matter, is to fill any gap or crack in your home where they can enter. To keep roaches out of your home you should take steps to caulk and repair any holes or gaps near pipes, baseboards, windows, and doors.
You should also remove any excess scrap paper or cardboard around your home, including your attic, garage, or basement as this gives them someplace to hide. Another key to protect against cockroaches is to make sure that food is stored in sealed containers. If there is no food readily available they will move on.
