Question: What are the most common types of roaches in El Paso?
Answer: The German, American, and oriental roaches are found throughout El Paso, TX and surrounding areas.
Question: What makes roaches so hard to get rid of?
Answer: For one, their ability to chew allows them to eat more than just common human food. Roaches share our love for the common macro-nutrients: complex carbohydrates, protein, fat, and simple sugars. But if “ideal” food sources are scarce, roaches have been known to eat leather, the starch in book binding glue, plant matter, and decaying animal and insect corpses. They are truly versatile with their diet, and they exhibit this same versatility when it comes to their adaptability to various living conditions.
Although roaches prefer dark, humid, small spaces to hide, they can move out into the open if necessary, and can survive within a rather large spectrum of temperature and humidity. Some roaches are rather good flyers, but most prefer to crawl or hitch-hike on objects or animals, and can therefore spread effectively in order to create new populations.
One of the primary reasons that roaches are so successful is because of their astonishing ability to reproduce. German roach females in particular lay a large number of eggs, and they reach sexual maturity at a very early age. German roach females carry the egg sac for a long time during development, which helps protect the baby roaches from harm. These roaches are also very small, which allows them to hide in a large variety of locations, thus increasing their adaptability.
Roaches have also developed a high resistance to some pesticides. This can create challenges to control, but at Pest Defense Solutions we understand this, and we treat with insecticides that even roaches can’t tolerate. We will oftentimes combine a variety of insecticide formulations and active ingredients to hit the roaches from a number of angles, creating a synergistic assault on an infestation.
Question: What can I do to help get rid of roaches at my home or place of business?
Answer: Cleanliness is critical to preventing roach infestations, as is the case with most types of pests. If you have a current infestation, make sure that you clean your home or business as thoroughly as possible. Make sure to remove any possible food sources, and scrub behind kitchen appliances if necessary. Grease is a favorite of German roaches, so make sure to degrease your kitchen.
Seal up your home to prevent possible entry points. Remove clutter, especially items in storage that could be considered trash. Make sure to address any areas of your home where there may be excessive moisture build-up, such as leaky plumbing.
