Effective Cockroach Control Solutions For Your Framingham & Metro West Property
There are several characteristics of cockroaches that make cockroach control a particularly onerous task for both home and business owners alike. Perhaps the two biggest aspects of cockroaches that make them so hard to get rid of are their legendary toughness and their almost unbelievable breeding speed.
Cockroaches are infamous for their ability to survive many things that might kill other bugs or even humans. They can survive nuclear fallout, chemical exposure, and even up to a week post-decapitation. Their legendary toughness makes eliminating a cockroach infestation insanely difficult because their resilience applies to most over-the-counter products intended to kill them. Most of the time, cockroaches are able to develop strong resistance to sprays and foggers within a couple of generations.
Speaking of generations, it doesn't take cockroaches all that long to breed one. German cockroaches are especially famous for this. These fast reproducers can generate a new generation every 60 days, and each female will lay hundreds of eggs in a short lifetime. Just a few breeding females in your home can balloon into a massive infestation of thousands of individuals in just a few months. When you add this breeding speed to the difficulty in killing them, it's easy to see why a cockroach infestation is one of the toughest pest infestations to eradicate.
Our Cockroach Control Offerings
Here at WPC Pest and Termite Control, our approach to getting rid of cockroaches is different. The first thing we do when we come out to your home is to inspect it thoroughly to identify the roach species involved in the infestation and the problem areas.
Once we know what we're dealing with, we'll spray a highly effective liquid treatment all over your house, including:
- Cracks and crevices
- Under appliances
- Behind picture frames
- Inside cabinets
We'll follow up this liquid treatment with an injectable dust treatment that goes in hard-to-reach places like behind cabinets, around pipes, or in wall voids. Our treatments work differently than over-the-counter cockroach control products because they're not poisons. Rather, they work by eliminating the roaches' ability to grow and reproduce, effectively ending the infestation with the last generation of adult roaches. To deal with this final generation, we will use strategically placed bait stations to kill as many adults as possible while allowing the stragglers to age and die naturally without replacing themselves.
