Keep Cockroaches Off Your Property With Citra Pest Control
Cockroaches are one of the worst pests you can wind up with in your San Jose home. This is because of several factors, including the difficulty of getting rid of them and the plethora of dangerous diseases they spread. Unfortunately, the reality is that cockroaches are so common and so motivated to get into your home that keeping them out is almost impossible. If you live virtually anywhere in the United States, you will likely deal with cockroaches at some point in your life.
Another unfortunate reality is that eliminating cockroach infestations without professional help is almost impossible. Cockroaches breed extremely fast and are very tough to kill with over-the-counter cockroach pesticides. This combination means that store-bought products are highly unlikely to eradicate roaches from your San Jose home. However, that doesn't mean you have to take cockroach infestations lying down.
Not only are there many things you can do on your own to prevent a cockroach problem. You also have a strong ally on your side if you do wind up getting a cockroach infestation. Here at Citra Pest Control, our cockroach control methods are so effective that we can handle any cockroach issue the San Jose area can throw at us. We won't just temporarily reduce the population of cockroaches on your property. We will eliminate it.
Our Cockroach Control Process
Here at Citra Pest Control, we practice Integrated Pest Management. This means we don't just spray some product around your property and call it a day. We focus on prevention, elimination, and ongoing treatment to ensure your home or business remains free from cockroaches and other pests. Our holistic approach is a much better method to keep cockroaches away because it helps create a hostile environment and makes your house an overall unwelcoming place for pests.
When you call us out to your home, we will start off by conducting a thorough inspection of your property. We will check the interior and exterior, looking for cockroach entry points, hiding places, and food sources. We will also use this inspection to determine what species of cockroaches are invading your home. This can impact what cockroach control products we use.
Next, we will perform a detailed treatment of the interior and exterior of your home. We will focus mostly on places where cockroaches are likely to hide, breed, and enter your home. We have a battery of cockroach treatment solutions that include sprays, gels, baits, exclusion products, and more. We can use one or more of these methods, depending on the results of our inspection.
We will always customize our treatment plans to fit your needs, keeping family members like children and pets in mind when choosing which cockroach control solutions we use and where we apply them. We will also always discuss your treatment options with you to ensure that we optimize our initial treatment to fit your specific needs and concerns.
Our recurring pest control programs include follow-up treatments to ensure your home remains unwelcoming for cockroaches long after the initial infestation is eliminated. That way, you can rest assured that you will never have to worry about these disgusting disease spreaders again.
Trust Us To Protect You From Roaches
You should always take cockroach infestations seriously. The diseases cockroaches carry are no joke and can seriously threaten your health and well-being. This means if you start seeing signs of cockroaches, you need to address the infestation right away.
However, you should ideally start addressing cockroach infestations before they happen. You might not be able to do anything to get rid of established cockroach infestations, but there is plenty you can do to prevent cockroach infestations from happening in the first place.
All you need to do is follow a few cockroach prevention best practices:
- Keep all indoor and outdoor garbage cans covered at all times.
- Store all pantry foods in airtight containers to mask smells.
- Seal cracks and holes in your home's exterior to prevent cockroach entry.
- Address moisture issues such as condensation, poor drainage, and leaky pipes.
- Never leave dirty dishes, including pet bowls, sitting out – not even in the sink.
Following these best practices can make your home less attractive to cockroaches and encourage them to move on. This can mean the difference between winding up with an infestation and not having to ever deal with one.
Just remember that if you do end up with a cockroach infestation, help is just a click or call away.
