Cockroaches/Roach Pest Control
Effective roach control in Kalamazoo, MI
Next to Bed Bugs, the cockroach is probably one of the most despised insects in West Michigan! One common cockroach myth is that they can only exist in unsanitary conditions. Although it helps to keep your home clean, once established, they can survive on very little food and water. There are four cockroaches that are common in Michigan: the American Cockroach, the Oriental Cockroach, the German Cockroach, and the Brown-banded Cockroach.
The cockroach can enter your home in several ways. They are hitchhikers and can come in on luggage, backpacks, clothing, used furniture or appliances. They do not typically fly or crawl from one house to another.
The best detection method is to look for their feces, which look like greasy black pepper. It can be found in the corners of cabinets and shelving. Seeing the insect is proof-positive. Also, people with asthma or allergies will often exhibit increased symptoms when cockroaches are present.
Cockroaches multiply exponentially. One pregnant cockroach can multiply to a population of 15-20,000 in just 6 months. Read more about roaches here.
