If you’ve seen cockroaches around your Worcester kitchen, it’s time to call Big Blue Bug Solutions. Cockroach infestations can be dangerous, and kitchens are a common target of cockroaches. Professional cockroach treatment from Big Blue Bug Solutions is the safest solution for an active cockroach infestation. 

 

Dangers of Cockroach Infestations

Cockroaches are known as filthy pests and for good reason. Cockroaches can carry and transmit illness-causing bacteria. As they scurry about in their favorite habitats, such as within garbage dumps, across animal waste, and in sewers, they pick up all the bacteria harbored in those places. Then they enter your home and deposit that filth on surfaces that your family encounters. For some people, cockroaches can also trigger asthma and allergy attacks. 

 

Why Kitchens are a Common Target

Cockroaches prefer locations that have a food source, moisture, and places to hide. Your Worcester kitchen can provide all these things to cockroaches. Your trash can, composting bin, recycling container, garbage disposal, and even your drains provide tasty meals for cockroaches. It’s also common to find that condensation or leaks around pipes under your sink attract cockroaches to that cabinet. They can hide under your refrigerator or in your dark pantry. Kitchens are often one of the first places in your home where you will spot cockroaches.

 

Professional Cockroach Treatment

Cockroach infestations can get out of hand rather quickly. At the first sign of cockroaches, you should call for professional pest control. While some homeowners will try to rid their homes of cockroaches with DIY methods, these often do more harm than good. Cockroaches scurry and hide the instant you try to spray or catch them, so you are likely pushing them deeper into your home. Even one cockroach left behind after you use DIY methods can cause a resurgence of a cockroach infestation.
