The cockroach in Singapore is known to be one of the most resilient creatures, spawning the Mandarin phrase ‘the unbeatable cockroach’ to illustrate its high resilience in nature. Most cockroaches prefer dark and moist environments, making them difficult to spot in the day. However, if a cockroach is spotted in the day, it may be a sign of a serious cockroach control problem. Pest Control Singapore offers affordable inspection and extermination services for homes, offices and businesses that guarantees the elimination of these pesky pests.
Why Get Rid of Cockroaches?
While cockroaches rarely bite humans and, unlike termites, do not cause any structural damage to buildings or furniture, cockroaches are still known for spreading diseases. Indeed, cockroaches themselves may not be capable of causing diseases, but their bodies act as carriers for various bacteria and viruses that we might come into contact with if we eat food that has been contaminated by cockroaches. They may also defecate on open food, leaving behind dead skin and even empty egg shells.
Cockroaches, though rare, may also enter your body’s orifices such as your ears and nose while you are sleeping. There have been several cases of small cockroaches invading the human body, making your vital organs susceptible to damage.
Cockroaches may also cause allergies as their bodies contain a wide variety of allergens that may trigger a person’s allergies easily upon contact. People with asthma should also be careful if their house is infested with cockroaches as these creepy crawlies may induce asthma or even cause non-asthmatic people to develop cockroach asthma after inhaling cockroach allergens.
Signs of a Cockroach Infestation
One of the sure signs of a cockroach infestation is spotting dead cockroaches and cockroach eggs in your environment. As cockroaches prefer lurking in dark and moist conditions, it is important to ensure that clutter in the household or office is clear before conducting an inspection. Cockroaches like to hide behind larger items such as the refrigerator, behind pots and pans, and even behind your oven. Other popular places where cockroaches are known to appear include the gutters, under carpets, behind wallpapers and behind walls.
Why Hire a Cockroach Control Service?
While there are many over-the-counter cockroach repellents and pesticides available, cockroaches are known to be difficult to eradicate given their resilience and great adaptability. Over the years, cockroaches have adapted to become more resistant to pesticides and are less likely to fall into cockroach traps. Even with new chemical formulas introduced in the market, many cockroaches are still resistant to the effects of these repellents as they outsmart humans. Furthermore, even if you manage to kill one cockroach, it is still difficult to locate its nest, making it nearly impossible to exterminate the cockroaches entirely. In this case, engaging a professional cockroach control service would be your best bet in ensuring that your cockroach infestation problem is solved as effectively as possible.
