Ask a Beverly Pest Control Company: Roaches in Apartment

August 20, 2013

Nobody likes to come home and see a kitchen full of roaches. They are not only disgusting to look at, they can also be dangerous to your health. Here are some health issues associated with cockroaches:

  • If they come in contact with food, and contaminate it, they can cause severe abdominal problems such as gastro-enteritis.
  • Their saliva, droppings, and decomposing bodies can release allergens that can increase the severity of asthma. They are also known to spread six types of parasitic worms and more than 30 types of bacteria.
  • Cockroaches can also spread extremely serious diseases such as hepatitis A, dysentery and cholera, as well as many other viral and bacterial infections. Roaches can also lead to problems such as diarrhea and abdominal cramps.

If you have tried store-bought sprays and you still can’t eliminate your problem, we can help. We will determine how big your infestation is, and then provide you with several options. One of our most effective treatments is bait gel, which we place in key spots throughout your home. Once a roach eats the gel it will it will return to its nest and infect the rest of the insects in the colony.
