One of the biggest misconceptions about these pests is that they are the result of dirty living. That simply is not the case. They can actually survive by eating just about any organic material. This can be anything including glues, certain types of debris, hair and even dead cockroaches. They do not enter a home because they smell a particular food source, but because they encountered a place in which they can breed and eat.

Another fact that many people do not realize is that they can be hazardous to the health of those in the home. Some believe that they simply have to live with them due to where they live and a lack of knowledge, but that is not the case. These pests can actually spread disease and are known to carry salmonella. They also create leave behind dust and debris that can be inhaled after they die. Some people are highly allergic to their carcasses and it can also lead to the development of allergies as well as respiratory conditions if not addressed in a timely manner.

The only way to eliminate an infestation in a home or business is with the use of the right chemicals, and removing their point of entry.  Many believe that by keeping their home spotless they will eventually die off or leave, but that simply is not the case. You may see less of them, but that is only likely due to them staying inside of the walls.

The most potent and effective pest control chemicals are used by professionals. They have access to chemicals that are not available for purchase in a store. These work by being placed in strategic areas. In most cases, they are eaten by the cockroach and then slowly lead to their death. This gives them time to return to nesting areas where they are eaten by others in the nest, resulting in their death.

The use of the right pest control products as soon as a pest is spotted is the best way to eliminate the problem quickly.

The longer someone goes without seeking the help of pest control professionals, the more costly and difficult it is to eliminate the problem. This is because the roaches live in the walls, which is difficult or even impossible to reach. An extreme infestation can take a number of applications before the problem is resolved.
