Hopper’s cockroach service FAQ’s

Where do cockroaches commonly hide?

Cockroaches are nocturnal insects, which is why it can be difficult to know you have a problem until it’s too late. However, understanding their habits and most common hiding spaces will help you identify ways to spot them and prevent future infestations from occurring.

Because of access to food and water or the ability to hide in a dark and/or moist place, cockroaches tend to be found in:

  • Kitchens
  • Floor drains
  • Electrical and plumbing conduits
  • Bathrooms
  • Grocery bags
  • Un-refrigerated vegetables
  • Utility closets
  • Basements
  • Toasters, televisions, or other electronics

How can cockroaches affect my health?

In addition to being a source of anxiety or fear when they’re spotted, cockroaches can also be hazardous to your health. It was recently discovered that cockroaches harbor certain allergens within their feces, saliva, and body parts that can trigger allergic reactions. Additionally, if you’re asthmatic, or someone in your house has asthma, contact with a cockroach can bring about an asthma attack.

Cockroaches are also responsible for transporting pathogens that can affect humans, including 33 kinds of bacteria and 6 parasitic worms. Of these, some of the most common issues are the spread of E. coli and salmonella which can cause food poisoning or gastroenteritis.

What can homeowners do to help prevent cockroach infestations?

To prevent cockroach infestations, we commonly recommend that homeowners get in the habit of:

  • Cleaning up all spilled foods and water
  • Repairing any water leaks
  • Increasing ventilation
  • Inspecting any foods or packages
  • Eliminating places where they can hide or access your property by sealing or screening

Our cockroach control process

At Hopper Termite & Pest, we don’t have a one-solution-fits-all mentality. Instead, we approach each pest infestation on an individual basis. We will begin by conducting a thorough inspection of your home to determine where the infestation is located and possible causes for it. From there, we will work with you to customize a treatment plan that combines elimination and exclusion methods.
