How to identify Cockroaches ?

Where do cockroaches hide?

Look under appliances, inside kitchen cupboards or clothes, behind pictures on the wall, in cracks in doors and windows, electrical outlets, and in every corner you can

Look for cockroaches at night:

The nests are usually hidden and this insect is nocturnal, so you are more likely to see a cockroach at night. Pay attention to your kitchen or the outdoors after dark. If you have pets, check the area where they eat because it is easily accessible.

Signs of cockroaches around the house:

We often suspect a pest, but we're not sure because we don't see the insects. In the case of cockroaches, look for the presence of droppings (tiny black grains), eggs or cockroach skin shells. You are also likely to find jaw marks on certain foods such as pasta and bread or food packaging.

Damage to objects caused by cockroach bites:

Another factor to consider is the damage that cockroaches can cause to objects such as books or upholstery. As they eat everything, this insect can leave marks on sofas and other paper or leather objects.

Strange odors where cockroaches pass by:

Cockroaches leave excrement and fluids wherever they go and where they sleep. These odors produce pheromones that attract more cockroaches, but they are one of the best ways to diagnose a cockroach infestation.

Regular cleaning of the house is essential to reduce the presence of cockroaches. Clean the kitchen regularly, do not leave food scraps exposed and make sure there are no crumbs or food residues on the floor.

2 Traps:

Regarding the traps can be an effective option for catching cockroaches. They contain a product to attract cockroaches and an adhesive substance to prevent cockroaches from escaping.

3 Attractive baits:

The attractive baits can be toxic substances that cockroaches consume and take back to their nests, killing cockroaches that come into contact with the bait and those in the nest.

The insecticides can be applied to specific locations in the house, such as cracks, crevices or behind furniture. It is important to follow the product instructions and be careful when applying it.

5 Are home treatments effective in eliminating cockroaches?

Home remedies such as bicarbonate of soda, vinegar and washing powder can have some effectiveness in individual cases or small populations, but limited effectiveness in eliminating cockroaches. Home treatments are generally not as effective as professional treatments or specific pest control products.

6 Call a professional:

If the cockroach infestation is very severe, you may need to call a professional to deal with the problem. They will have access to stronger products and more effective pest control techniques.

Keeping the kitchen and appliances clean and free of grease, storing food in closed containers, emptying the trash, cleaning pipes, repairing cracks in walls and vacuuming frequently are just some of these behaviors.

Insecticide in drains:

If you have sewage tanks near your home, we recommend using Draker insecticide throughout the year.

Can cockroaches cause disease?

Yes, cockroaches carry germs from sewage and rubbish and spread them wherever they go. These insects can transmit various viruses and bacteria, such as salmonella and staphylococci, which are responsible for food poisoning and infections. In addition, the particles released by cockroaches' exoskeletons can trigger allergies and asthma attacks. It's also important to note that studies indicate that cockroaches can carry gastrointestinal parasites and viruses, posing a danger to human health.
