While some pest problems can sometimes be treated at home, that is simply not the case for cockroaches. Seeing even one cockroach in your home is cause for concern because it often indicates a bigger problem. Cockroaches can create a health hazard, contaminate food, and spread filth wherever they go, making it all the more important to get professional help. The expert cockroach exterminators at Dugas Pest Control know how to remove roaches from your property, keeping you and your family safe!
Are cockroaches dangerous?
Everyone knows cockroaches are gross, but did you know they can be a threat to the health of your property and family as well? Some of the risks of cockroaches include:
- Roaches are known to cause allergies. Their droppings, skin, and saliva can release particles in the air that may trigger allergic reactions in some people.
- They carry a range of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. This can cause contamination and deteriorate food products.
- They are proven or suspected carriers of organisms that cause disease. Transmitted indirectly through their droppings or saliva, roaches have been linked to salmonellosis, cholera, listeriosis, and more.

Does DIY cockroach control work?
As soon as you realize you have cockroaches, you likely want them out of your property as soon as possible. As much as other resources may try to convince you otherwise, DIY methods simply won’t cut it when it comes to treating an active infestation. Cockroaches only need a few weeks to turn into a full-blown infestation, usually right under your nose. They will also consume anything organic available to them. All-natural or DIY methods may work to keep them away for a day or two, but full extermination always requires the expertise of a pest control company.
