German cockroach crawling

Cockroaches are one of the most commonly encountered house pests, and one of the most difficult to eliminate. Roaches are well-adapted for survival in the wild. They breed quickly and can both build and replace their populations rapidly. They are wary pests that can detect danger from a considerable distance away and run fast to escape. Roaches are very flexible, can live in almost any environment, and can survive on various food sources.

Clear Signs Of A Cockroach Infestation

Here are some ways to tell if cockroaches are in your business:

  • Contaminated food. Cockroaches will infest food sources and contaminate them.
  • Droppings. Roaches tend to leave extensive droppings close to food sources.
  • Egg cases. Finding cockroach egg cases in your business is a sure sign.
  • Stains on walls/ceilings. Cockroach droppings on walls/ceilings look like stains.
  • Roaches themselves. Dead or alive, a cockroach is a sure sign of infestation.

Cockroaches can move into your business quietly and can reproduce quickly once they get there. If you are struggling with a cockroach infestation, get in touch with us. Accurate Pest Control professionals know how to kill cockroaches fast and then keep them away.

The Health Risks Of A Cockroach Infestation In Your Business

Cockroaches can unsettle your staff, customers, and suppliers, and can cause delays in your business. Beyond that, they can also introduce you to the risk of health concerns. The cockroaches in your business will explore every inch of it. They will also explore everything else in their environment, and roaches like dirty, nasty places like garbage heaps and sewers. They can get exposed to dangerous pathogens like E. coli, salmonella, giardia, and listeria, and can get them on their bodies and legs. If roaches later enter your business after exploring these areas, they can spread dangerous pathogens around that you, your employees, your customers, and your suppliers can later come into contact with. You can get exposed to dangerous pathogens without ever seeing a cockroach.
