Let’s be honest- the only sure way to treat for an infestation of any kind is to call a professional. Many exterminators will come in and do an assessment for free, and can work with you on a plan that’s within your price range. But, if you’ve seen the little brown blur scurry across your kitchen in the middle of the night, then you’re going to want to take some sort of immediate action.
Not all infestations indicate that you’re a dirty person. Bugs can come in from a huge variety of different sources, and we all know how quickly they take up residence. Visiting a hotel on a family vacation can bring bedbugs back to your home. Buying a pre-owned piece of furniture (even from reputable dealers) can bring German Cockroaches in- and all it takes is two of them.
Chances are, every one of us will experience some sort of run in with common household pests in our lifetimes.
The easiest way to spot a cockroach infestation is to see a cockroach. But, if you’re seeing cockroaches running around the problem may be larger than you think. Cockroaches don’t necessarily indicate that you are a dirty or unsanitary person. Often times, they can be brought in with deliveries, groceries, and through many different methods.
If you live next to someone who has a cockroach infestation, the cockroaches can migrate into your home as their population grows. This is especially true if you live in a duplex or in an apartment complex. Your neighbor four doors down could have a cockroach problem and they could find their ways into your home even if you are incredibly clean. Cockroaches do not discriminate, and neither should you when it comes to getting rid of them. These are not a pest that you want to live with. They are dirty, problematic, and very difficult to get rid of.
