Pest Control Info for Sandy Springs Residents
If you live in Sandy Springs, GA, chances are you need a good pest control solution. You may love the relaxed feeling and natural setting of this beautiful bit of Georgia. But the joy and tranquility of nature can quickly vanish when that nature gets just a bit too comfortable in your home. Put simply, it’s no fun when the bugs and pests that live outside your home decide to make their way into your home.
Perhaps the most common and most reviled pest around these parts is the cockroach. In fact, they are the most common pests in America. And they don’t discriminate. Whether you live ITP or OTP, in an apartment, condo, townhouse, or single family home, chances are you are a target for cockroaches.
There are things you can do to avoid cockroaches. Keeping your home clean and following proper food storage practices helps. But here in the Southeast the roaches can be fierce. It doesn’t take much for these pesky bugs to make their home in your home.
Once you have roaches, you are in for a whole host of problems. Because people associate cockroaches with uncleanliness, having a roach pop its head out in the presence of company can be horribly embarrassing. One roach siting and your friends will think you can’t keep a clean home.
Worse than the embarrassment, roaches are known to carry bacteria that can result in food poisoning, diarrhea, allergies, and skin rashes. Many people who think they are allergic to dust may also be allergic to cockroaches, including the bits of dried shells and fecal droppings they leave around your house. In large numbers cockroaches can even create a foul odor. No one needs that!
Dealing with Infestation
It may not be obvious that you have a roach infestation. You may just see one skitter across your floor. That’s gross, but is it really worth calling in a pest control expert? Unfortunately, roaches rarely come alone. By the time you see that first roach, chances are you’re under full-blown attack!
It’s tempting to try to save money by tackling the problem on your own. But cockroaches are tough to spot and tougher to kill. Roaches can hide inside your walls, under your baseboards, in crevices underneath cabinets, behind your furniture, and in all sorts of hard to reach spots that you might never get to with a do-it-yourself solution.
Laying out traps or sprinkling around poison may work to catch some roaches, but chances are if you go it alone you will ultimately be unsuccessful. While the roach population in your home may dwindle temporarily, you remain unprotected when the survivors begin to (quickly) reproduce and re-invade.
And even that temporary respite comes at a price. Roach motels are unsightly. Boric acid powder, a common roach poison, is easily spread around by a simple breeze and over time it can lose its effectiveness.
Your best bet is to call in the pros. People’s Pest Control will evaluate your infestation, give you a free quote, and find the best way to get rid of those bugs for good. With transparent pricing and never an extra fee for the first treatment, People’s Pest Control will help you put together a plan to kick out those roaches and keep them out.
