Frequently asked questions
What causes a cockroach infestation?
As far as a roach infestation is concerned, we round up the usual suspects - clutter, food leftovers, and dampness. Clutter provides lots of shelter for them and since they don’t like being seen, that makes it the perfect living environment. They can go a long time without food, but they also have quite the appetite, so food leftovers are like an open buffet. And finally - dampness, because they get dehydrated easily. Eliminate these factors from your home and you will significantly reduce the chances of an infestation.
My home is clean. Why do I still have roaches?
Although cleanliness is next to godliness, it doesn’t always guarantee you will avoid an infestation. Sometimes, excess humidity is enough to get roaches to your home. And, sometimes, they hitchhike from somewhere else. The best thing you can do is pest-proof your home, keep it clean, don’t keep food leftovers lying around, and throw away the rubbish regularly. This doesn’t guarantee 100% that you won’t get roaches, but it definitely helps.
Are roaches dangerous?
Most people are confident that roaches are harmless, but this is not exactly right. Some species (like the German cockroach - small, brown, notoriously difficult to kill) will bite when provoked. But even that doesn’t make them dangerous. What constitutes them as a health hazard is the fact that they go through some pretty nasty places, thus covering their bodies in all manner of harmful bacteria and germs. After that, they may go through your pillows, your food, your utensils and contaminate them. This is the real danger.
How long does the treatment take?
It depends. It can take up to three weeks for a small-scale infestation, but it can take even longer for a large-scale invasion. Also, different species have different resilience levels. German cockroaches are the most likely type of roach you may have in your home, yet it’s the most resilient. The only thing that’s certain is it won’t be quick. Effectiveness requires time.
