Why Cockroaches Infest Your Home

The experience of the roach exterminators in London can be helpful to you – you can save yourself the headache of future infestation. The population of cockroaches at your property will multiply as soon as the insects have access to food. For instance, if you don’t wash and put away your dishes right after a meal, the cockroaches will sense the attractive food odour and try settling into the premises.

For the same reason, you should never leave exposed food on the counters and dishes in the sink. You should also take care of old plumbing and leaking pipes – these are potential entrance points for roaches. The same applies to holes and cracks around your property.

Cockroaches can flatten their bodies to fit into narrow areas like the space under mats, wallpaper and, of course, wall cracks. If you see a cockroach during the day, it is a possible sign of infestation – these insects are nocturnal, and only overcrowding would push them out in daylight. Remember to take your rubbish out daily.

Maintain contact with the housing authority and be aware of anyone who has problems with cockroaches nearby, as they tend to seek shelter in neighbouring homes.

Don’t let pigeons infest your property. The faeces of birds are part of the cockroach’s diet. Consider bird proofing service if your property tends to welcome pigeons.

If you are unsure of the pest you are dealing with or can’t establish the severity of your problems, book a simple pest inspection and let the exterminators advise you after they finish.

Possible Dangers of Cockroach Infestation

Most cockroaches emit unpleasant smells, and some people are allergic to them.  Some emitted substances contain allergens that can cause asthma and other health problems. Other sources of filth are the bodies of dead cockroaches, their faeces and the egg cases.

That is why we recommend deep cleaning your property after the extermination.

Cockroaches can also bite if they run out of food. Their bites can cause irritation, lesions, swelling, and even minor infections. If you experience such bites, the pest population is out of control, and you must immediately seek the help of a cockroach exterminator.

What time of year are cockroaches most active?
Cockroaches are most active in the spring and summer months. When the temperature rises, roaches are more likely to move around searching for food and spawning. In contrast, cockroaches enter a dormancy called diapause when temperatures drop in the winter.
Why are there suddenly so many cockroaches in my house?
Cockroaches can’t survive without water for more than a week. In humid or high-moisture areas of the home, such as basements and bathrooms, leaky pipes and faucets attract cockroaches, so they are often found there.
Are cockroaches in a house normal?
It’s no surprise to find one or two cockroaches in your home. But when those pesky critters start showing up persistently, it’s time to take action. Ignoring the problem won’t make it go away. Instead, you may end up with an infestation on your hands. Don’t wait until things get out of control – address any signs of cockroaches immediately.
What smell keeps roaches away?
Cockroaches can’t tolerate citrus scents! Even though the fragrance is pleasant to humans, roaches despise it. You can take advantage of this by using citrus-based cleaners in your kitchen and bathroom.
