We have proven techniques that help Springville homeowners feel confident in the results they will see. We are not satisfied with our work until you are. 

Types Of Cockroaches: Identifying Common Species

In the Springville area, we see a few different kinds of cockroaches on a regular basis. 

  • American cockroaches can be up to two inches in length, making them one of the largest species of roaches. They often have a reddish-brown body color.

  • German cockroaches are tiny insects, usually 5/8 of an inch in length or smaller. They often have a light brown or tan body color.

  • Oriental cockroaches are about one inch in length. They typically have black bodies that appear to be shiny.

Our pros at Bug Wranglers don’t expect our customers to know exactly which types of roaches they are seeing in their homes when they reach out to us. After all, you are not interested in studying the different characteristics of these pests. You simply want them gone.

Count on our team to study each kind of roach, giving us insights that can help us control them effectively. 

Health Risks Of Roaches: The Dangers Of Cockroaches In The House

Because they spend much of their time walking through and feeding in filthy conditions, cockroaches can pick up many kinds of bacteria that can make you and your family extremely sick. All it takes is for the contaminated cockroach to walk across some of your food or leave saliva and droppings in areas where they make contact with your food to expose you to illness.

Can cockroaches bite? Although they can bite, they typically do not bite humans. However, they can expose you to bacteria and other diseases without ever biting you or without you even seeing them.

Additionally, roaches molt frequently, leaving discarded skin behind, along with some body parts. Any of these items can create uncomfortable symptoms for people who have severe asthma or allergies.

Eradicate A Cockroach Problem In Your Home: Call In The Experts!

When you are seeking proven solutions for how to get rid of cockroaches, you probably will want to steer clear of DIY products that you pick up at a Springville hardware store.

The experts at Bug Wranglers know how to treat the problem at the source by seeking out areas where roaches are nesting. 

If you only try to treat the cockroaches that you can see with your DIY techniques, you probably won’t have much success. Cockroaches notoriously try to hide from humans, becoming most active at night. It’s difficult for a novice to know where to look to find the roaches that are hiding, but our team at Bug Wranglers specializes in these techniques.

Maintenance Tips: Ensuring Long-Term Cockroach Control

After our experts at Bug Wranglers take care of the problem with roaches at your Springville home, you’ll still need to take steps to keep them from returning. Some of the preventative steps you can take include:

  • Remove stray food and clean up crumbs.

  • Store your food in tightly sealed containers.

  • Place lids on garbage cans.

  • Keep your compost pile far away from your home.

  • Fix areas with excess moisture in your home, such as from leaking pipes.

  • Keep your sink free of dirty dishes.
