How to Get Rid of Cockroaches by Active Pest Control in Georgia

Cockroaches: just the word alone is likely to send someone running. Do you have cockroaches on your property? If the answer is “I’m not sure,” you may be in trouble, because if you’ve seen even one cockroach scuttling across your kitchen floor, you already have an invasion on your hands! Roach motels and sprays are only half the battle; it’s important to consult professionals about combating these repulsive pests. If you have cockroaches in your business or home, you need them gone ASAP—call Active Pest Control today!

Eliminate Cockroaches for Good

It’s not enough to put out traps or even spray for cockroaches–your building must be completely clear of anything that resembles food, water, or shelter for cockroaches. They are incredible scavengers, and will eat almost anything, including paper and soap!

Cleaning and proper food storage are absolutely essential to keeping your home roach-free:

  • Eliminate Food Sources for Cockroaches: Roaches are attracted to fruits, vegetables, crumbs, and garbage. They can feast on all of this, and if you make it easy for them, they will be more than happy to do just that.
  • Sweep, Mop, and Clean to Prevent Cockroaches: When you drop crumbs on the floor and leave them there, you’re basically inviting cockroaches to come to a free buffet.
  • Eliminate Hiding Places: Cockroaches will use anything for hiding, and they can fit into very small cracks. It’s important to seal cracks and eliminate clutter, boxes, and anything else that could provide a hiding spot.
  • Sprays or Chemicals: Boric acid and roach traps can help, but only when used with proper hygiene and exclusion practices. Sprays wear off quickly, and will not work by themselves.

Professional Extermination for Cockroaches

Cockroaches are worse than simply skin-crawling–they’re carriers of bacteria and pathogens. Because they’ll go anywhere and eat anything, roaches can pick up diseases and pathogens from the darkest places, scattering these dangers throughout your building. A professional cockroach exterminator is your best bet for eliminating these disgusting pests. Active Pest Control uses Integrated Pest Management to get rid of cockroaches in the most efficient way possible. We’ll work with you to make sure your needs are taken care of, any problems are addressed, and we won’t stop working until the cockroaches are gone for good.
