Plymouth Cockroach Control
The old village restaurant crawl brings memories of new experiences, delicious foods, old friends, and new acquaintances….for most people. In the world of pest control, it has the tendency to remind us that other animals in Plymouth besides people like to put together restaurant crawls. Since every home and business breakroom can become a restaurant for roaches, Plymouth roach control rises to top of mind.
Roach Food Preferences
The vast array of restaurants and menu options surrounding Kellogg Park reminds us of the diversity of tastes and food options for our Plymouth human residents. When it comes to roaches, they are even more diverse in their food tastes and types of foods they can consume. They are omnivorous and will dive into most anything readily available. With a roach, a crumb or a drop goes a long way. An extensive list would be overkill, but Plymouth roach control should consider some of the following possible food sources:
- Grease splatter
- Crumbs between appliances
- Food that collects under stovetops
- Candy bowls
- Uncovered food
The Roach Lineup
There are many roaches around that aren’t a concern for home and business owners. Most of them will never show their face in Plymouth, but there is a handful to be aware of including:
- Australian roach – these roaches love rich soil, if they catch a ride in on a potted plant, just give them a friendly escort outside
- German roach – these love grease and are great at hiding. Removal of food sources, sanitation, and degreasing are essential parts of Plymouth roach control.
- Wood roach – attracted to lights and great flyers, proper light management and exclusion can be the Plymouth roach control secret sauce
- Brown banded roach – Environmental adjustments such as humidity, temperature, and food availability are the key to success
- American roach – These are large like the Australian roach, but love structures much more. They can be distinguished by a lighter than the Australian roach but distinct butterfly shaped marking on the pronotum.
Customizing Control Components
As discussed above, cockroaches have unique characteristics from one species to the next. Each species will respond differently to:
- Exclusion (types and areas focused on)
- Sanitation efforts (grease, vs soil, etc.)
- Bait type and placement
- Monitor types
- Growth regulators
- Liquid controls
- Dust applications
Plymouth roach control starts with identification but ends with expertise. Rove Pest Control’s roach experts are ready and happy to help so you can stop thinking about 6 legged restaurant crawls and get focused on human restaurant crawls.
