Why Leave Cockroaches To The Professionals At American Pest Solutions

Cockroach crawling in a cup.

When it comes to pests, there are several that really make people shudder. If there were a list of the top 5 pests people dread the most, cockroaches would be firmly at the top. If you end up with roaches in your home, your first order of business is to get rid of them as quickly as possible, but it’s best to leave cockroaches to the professionals for many reasons.

Why DIY Methods Fail

Cockroaches are difficult to eliminate on your own. The first reason is due to the fact that they’re just plain difficult to eliminate. They can hold their breath for an extended period of time, so tossing them in the toilet or rinsing them down a sink drain is rarely effective. They can also run around for days without a head (yes, DAYS!) before they eventually die of thirst.

DIY cockroach elimination methods are also ineffective because cockroaches are good at hiding. If you kill the ones you see skittering around your kitchen and think you’re done, you’ll be in for a surprise when more emerge in the days and weeks to come.

Finally, cockroaches are difficult to eradicate on your own because they reproduce quickly. What starts as a small cockroach infestation can quickly turn into a much larger problem.
