Exterminators in Kansas City Milberger Pest Control can completely eliminate cockroaches from your home or business in a short time. We accomplish this using prevention techniques and highly effective bait technology, alongside pesticides where possible.
Cockroaches are one of the most problematic infestations you can have. Because they feed on all sorts of materials including rot and waste, roaches pick up pathogens and bacteria from those environments on their legs and bodies. When inside a home or business with an exposed human or pet food source, they will spread bacteria directly to our foods. Ingesting those foods can then cause severe illness. Roaches also trigger allergies and asthma in many people.
Cockroaches In Kansas City
In the Kansas City area, there are four types of roaches that can complete their life cycle entirely indoors: the oriental cockroach, the American cockroach, the brown-banded cockroach, and the German cockroach. Of these, only the American and German cockroaches can fly.
Cockroaches are attracted to light and may come in through tiny cracks or holes in the building, or gaps around windows and doors. Roaches can enter through pipes or other holes in multi-family dwellings with shared walls, requiring exterminators in Kansas City for the entire building. They also often hitch a ride in boxes or suitcases.
Patching cracks and holes in the home and thoroughly inspecting boxes and bags before moving can help to prevent an infestation. Cockroaches are drawn to food sources, so keeping kitchens clean with no accessible crumbs, scraps, or pet food is key to prevention as well as controlling an active infestation.
Cockroaches can’t live long without water, so removing any access to it, including leaking faucets or pipes as well as any standing water in sinks or catch basins under refrigerators, also discourages them.
How Exterminators in Kansas City Milberger Pest Control Kill Roaches
Baiting treatments from Milberger Pest Control offer superior control and are much more effective than sprays, foggers, and powders. One application lasts for months, or until the bait is completely consumed. These treatments cost less than conventional treatments because one application is effective for so long that fewer applications are required.
Baiting treatments from Milberger Pest Control exterminators in Kansas City also offer less chemical exposure than other extermination methods. Less pesticide is applied to the environment when compared to conventional treatments. Baits release no offensive odors into your home and are not harmful to people or pets. Bait stations are child-resistant and the gel bait can be applied in areas not accessible to children and pets.
Foraging roaches consume lethal doses of bait, then return to their nest. Because they carry the bait on their legs and bodies just like bacteria, they poison many other roaches who also receive a lethal dose before they die within 24-72 hours.
