Eco-Friendly Cockroach Pest Control
When unwanted guests, like cockroaches or bed bugs, invade your home it’s time to take action. Often enough the typical course of action people take is to spray toxic pesticides throughout their home. The toxins from those pesticides jeopardize the health of your pets, your family, and anyone else who might be breathing in the residual traces of the pesticide. Fortunately these days there are safe alternatives that not only protect the health of those in the area, but also help protect the environment.
The Infamous Cockroach
Cockroaches are avoided for good reason. That’s why we call them pests. These bugs may be just looking for a little shelter and food, but they also leave disease spreading feces and vomit behind everywhere they tread.
Cockroaches can eat just about anything. They enjoy the thin layer of grease found in kitchens and the grime that builds up in bathrooms. How about cardboard for an entree and particle board for dessert? The dining habits of the unwanted cockroach leave something to be desired. They routinely digest chemicals such as formaldehyde, and they relentlessly search for moisture.
Environmentally Friendly Cockroach Control
The traditional use of dangerous chemicals like Indoxocarb, Hydramethylnon and Fipronil is known to harm the health of people and pets. The manufacture and transportation of toxic chemicals also harms the environment. Fortunately, concern for the environment has led to the development of environmentally friendly techniques and products for pest control.
The first line of defense against a cockroach invasion is to eliminate the food and water that attract them. Dirty counters and dishes can provide a midnight snack for lazy cockroaches. Moreover, cockroaches look at a bowl of pet food as if it were a 24-hour fast food joint. Using a little baking soda and water when cleaning can do wonders, and plugging up entry points can make quite a difference.
Getting Rid of Cockroaches
You don’t have to use poisonous pesticides to eradicate unwelcome cockroaches. Eliminating roaches can be more challenging for those that live in buildings with multiple residents. Aside from limiting the food supply, eco-friendly bait is an effective means of controlling cockroach populations. Often times, it’s necessary to go after the cockroaches where they live and breed. You can’t see them, but they live inside the walls and use the electrical wires as a system of highways. They really know how to get around town.
Professional and eco-friendly pest control can keep a home safe from cockroaches and other nasty pests like bed bugs. Pest control products should be derived from botanical and organic sources. Staying away from cheap toxic chemicals is the smarter way to keep a residential dwelling cockroach free.
