Intimidating Roaches Hiding In Any Crack Or Crevice Imaginable
Learn How To Control Your Roach Population
The American Cockroach, which is one of the most common types in the United States, lays 15-90 egg capsules in their lifetime which each yield 14-16 eggs. One huge reason why cockroaches can become a huge problem is each adult female roach can lay egg capsules up to once per week! One the eggs hatch, they are called nymphs, which then go through 9-13 molting stages before maturing to an adult. Under the best conditions, adults females can only live about 14-15 months at the most although many roaches don't even make it that long.
Cockroach Control- Protecting Your Residence
When attempting to manage your roach invasion, there are a few steps that need to be taken in order to secure the premise. The outside of your residence needs to be thoroughly inspected for cracks and holes to know their access point so you can take prevention measures to keep roaches out. Once holes and cracks are found, they need to be sealed with caulk or another sealant to insure they do not come inside. Another thing that can be done at this point to help you with your cockroach control is to treat the perimeter with an insecticide to create somewhat of a barrier to keep them out even further. Talstar PL Granules is a good product to use when creating a barrier around the residence. This will prevent the roaches and other insects from entering your yard and getting around your house.
How To Get Rid of Cockroaches
Roach bait is highly effective when it comes to eliminating infestations of roaches. When a roach consumes some of the roach bait, it then travels back to where the rest of the cockroaches are and he will die there. The poison is then transferred from the dead roach to all of the other roaches when they consume his dead carcass, because of course, cockroaches are cannibals. One of the baits that has really helped me figure out How To Get Rid of Cockroaches is the Syngenta Advion Roach Gel Bait. This is a very effective bait when determining how to get rid of cockroaches. It is non-repellant and will not harm your pets although as just a warning it is advised the gel is placed in areas where pets cannot easily get to.
IGR's (Insect Growth Regulator)
IGR's are chemicals which will attract an insect and mimic its natural hormones. While insecticides usually affect the nervous system, an IGR will inhibit a cockroach from being able to reproduce in the future. This may kill some nymph roaches and sterilize the rest but it does not do much to the roaches that are already mature adults. An IGR is best used with an insecticide like Suspend in order to be sure the job is done. An insecticide like Suspend will kill all of the adults, while an IGR will prevent any of the remaining young roaches from reproducing in the future.
Planning for the Future
Using an insecticide, an IGR, roach traps, and gels is a good start to having a roach free house forever. Although in the mean time it seems like you have figured out How to Get Rid of Cockroaches for good, there are still things that must be done. Roach infestations need ongoing maintenance and regular checks to make sure they have not returned. Write your own plan to make sure you continue to keep a handle on your cockroach control and are able to maintain a roach free environment.
