Potential Harms Caused by Cockroaches
Cockroaches can cause a range of damage, carry pathogens and harm people in both residential and commercial settings. Some of the most significant issues include:
Cockroaches can carry and spread harmful bacteria and viruses, including E. coli and Salmonella poisoning, that can cause food poisoning and other illnesses. They can also trigger allergic reactions and asthma attacks in people who are sensitive to their droppings or shed skin.
Cockroaches can contaminate edible items, surfaces, and other items with their droppings, shed skin, and other debris. This can make food unsafe to eat and lead to the spread of harmful bacteria and viruses.
Large infestations of cockroaches can cause damage to structures and materials, such as wallpaper, books, and fabrics. Cockroaches can also chew through wiring and cause electrical problems, which can be a fire hazard. They can foul ventilation ductwork in crawl spaces, or attack other organic matter as a source of food.
Cockroach infestations can damage the reputation of businesses, especially those in the restaurant and service industry. A cockroach infestation can cause customers to avoid a business and leave negative reviews online, which can hurt business and revenue.
Loss of Property Value
An often unforeseen effect of an infestation of any type is the loss of property value. Realtors and home evaluators will look for signs of infestations in pre-sale checks. If evidence of any pest infestation is spotted, it can have a significant negative impact on your home’s or property’s resale value.
Our Cockroach Pest Control Process
Generally, all of our cockroach control procedures begin with an assessment. We will evaluate the scale of the problem and give you potential solutions for cockroach pest control. Once we know the cockroach species causing your issue, we will take a multi-pronged approach that may include placing cockroach bait, administering chemical treatments or taking other measures needed to eliminate cockroaches. Although commercially available gel baits can help, they are not as effective or have the longterm effectiveness of a professional treatment.
Pesti Pest Control’s measures ensure you achieve complete peace of mind, knowing that we have attacked your cockroach problems from every angle.

Does killing a cockroach attract more?
Killing a single cockroach is not likely to attract more, but the act of killing can release a pheromone that can attract other cockroaches to the area. Cockroaches use pheromones to communicate with each other, and some species release an “alarm” pheromone when they sense danger or feel threatened.
This alarm pheromone can signal to other nearby cockroaches that there is a potential threat in the area, and they may become more active as a result. In some cases, this increased activity can make it appear as though killing one cockroach has attracted more, when in fact it is simply a response to the alarm pheromone. The increase in activity can help treatment by making the pests more visible.
Does seeing one cockroach mean infestation?
Not necessarily. Seeing one does not necessarily mean that you have a full-blown cockroach problem, but it can be an indicator that there are more cockroaches present in your home or property. Cockroaches are nocturnal and are skilled at hiding in dark, secluded places during the day, so if you see one in a visible area during the day, there is a chance that there are more hiding nearby.
It is important to take action when you see a cockroach to prevent a larger infestation from developing. You should thoroughly clean the area where the cockroach was seen, seal any cracks or openings in walls or floors, and eliminate anything edible and water that may be attracting the cockroaches. You may also want to consider professional cockroach control services to eliminate any existing infestations and prevent future ones.
Regular inspections and proactive cockroach control measures are the best way to prevent a cockroach infestation from taking hold in your home or property.
Do cockroaches mean I have a dirty home?
Cockroaches are often associated with dirty and unsanitary living conditions, but the presence of cockroaches does not necessarily mean that you have a dirty home. Cockroaches are attracted to any place that offers them a source of food, water, and shelter. This means that even the cleanest of homes can be at risk for a cockroach infestation.
However, a dirty and cluttered home can make it easier for cockroaches to find sources of food and shelter. Cockroaches can feed on a variety of things, including crumbs, food residue, and even pet food. They can also thrive in areas with moisture, such as leaky pipes, standing water, or damp areas.
To reduce the risk of a cockroach infestation, it is important to maintain a clean and tidy home, free of food debris, crumbs, and clutter. Regularly clean and vacuum floors and surfaces, take out the trash regularly and store food in airtight containers. It is also important to seal any cracks and openings in walls or floors to prevent cockroaches from entering the home.
