Have you replace a roach in your kitchen? Or maybe you saw one in the bathroom. Regardless, that could be something to worry about. Sometimes these particular pests won’t hang around, but if they do you should call Quality Pest Exterminator for help. Some problems with bugs can be resolved with DIY methods but cockroaches typically don’t go away without the help of an exterminator.
Our Indianapolis roach exterminators have been helping residents get relief from these grotesque pests and are ready to help you do the same. You definitely need to take action right away, regardless of who you call; us or another pest control provider. You don’t want to delay treating the problem.
Your technician will identify the type of cockroach in your space so that it can be treated correctly. Often times there are roach types that will enter dwellings in addition to other buildings and structures where people are. This is one of the reasons they’re viewed as a pretty large nuisance.
Did you know that cockroaches can actually be helpful? While it’s gross, they’re actually helping us out by recycling those organic materials that have decayed. Unfortunately, they’re more harmful than helpful; especially to human health. They transport diseases and are often found scurrying throughout unclean areas or spaces. They can then transmit these diseases to humans. You just have to come into contact with them and when there’s an infestation, you’re at a higher risk of having health problems due to the roach presence.
Cockroaches come in several dimensions, usually 2 inches long for native cockroaches while tropical species tend to be much bigger. They have six legs, 2 antennae, and certain species have wings but it doesn’t necessarily mean they can fly.
If you’ve ever been inside of a building that had been infested by roaches you likely experienced an upsetting fragrance. This is one way to identify such an infestation. They can also generate sound and you can actually hear them when an infestation is present.

So how did these bugs get inside your home or property? Easy; they found an entry point. They don’t require much space to get inside, the smallest hole or gap around your pipes, any exterior crevice or crack, and even your exterior vents that have endured damage; all of these are ideal entry points for roaches.
Homes are in fact an ideal spot for roaches to reproduce. They have access to adequate food and water, warmth, and endless possibilities for producing a nest. When they have access to such resources, you can expect them to stay active for a full year, if are not longer.
Roaches reproduce very quickly and that’s why you should address them right away, even if you only see one. Many times more are hiding out nearby and aren’t discovered until our technician discovers them or they start multiplying. An infestation is hard to ignore because the roaches will be everywhere; every room and every surface.
They emerge at night to scavenge and is why many residents don’t realize there’s a problem until they start noticing them during the day; when their population has increased.
