Tampa's Guide To Effective German Cockroach Control

cockroaches crawling in a home

Cockroaches are well adapted for survival. They reproduce quickly to help them survive predators, are highly flexible in what they eat, and can live almost anywhere. Roaches are found in almost every place on earth. These natural habits not only help roaches survive in nature but also allow them to thrive in urban environments. Food, water, and shelter are plentiful, and roaches make good use of them. DIY Cockroach control in Tampa can be challenging because of this. Cockroaches can resist DIY efforts, allowing infestations to survive elimination efforts and then thrive afterward.

Professional pest control in Tampa can help. If you are struggling with cockroaches in your Tampa home, call EcoTech Pest Control Services. We have a long history of eliminating roach infestations.

  • Roach droppings: even finding roach droppings near stored food is an indicator.
  • Egg cases: finding roach egg cases anywhere in your home is a definite indicator.
  • Stains: small, dark stains on walls and ceilings may be roach droppings, a sure sign.

Why It's Dangerous To Have German Roaches In Your Home

Cockroaches love exploring their environment, and they’re not shy about where they go. Cockroaches will explore garbage dumps, carcasses, and sewers as readily as they will explore your home. They can get exposed to disease-causing pathogens like salmonella, giardia, and listeria, and can then track them into your home. If roaches later walk on your dinnerware, furniture, and countertops, they can leave these pathogens behind, and you can come into contact with them. You can get sick without ever seeing a roach.
