No one wants to come across a cockroach in their property. In addition to being unsightly, cockroaches carry filth wherever they go, and are capable of spreading bacteria and pathogens that are potentially dangerous for humans. Even worse, cockroaches are notorious for surviving on the bare minimum, making them especially difficult to control. At Springer, we believe in our IPM methods that work to prevent cockroach problems before they begin!

Cockroach behaviors and habits
Cockroaches have quite the reputation for not only being gross, but for surviving in even the harshest of conditions. They’ve been known to live for weeks without substantial food, and can adapt to a number of environments. For the most part, though, they prefer dark, hidden, and warm areas found within buildings. It’s highly likely that you already have an infestation when you see even one cockroach in your home.
How to get rid of cockroaches
As soon as you see a cockroach in your building, it’s smart to call in a professional who can diagnose your infestation. To make sure we fully treat your property for cockroaches, we will implement the following roach control methods:
- We will identify the type of cockroach you’re dealing with as well as the severity of the infestation.
- Our technicians will discreetly apply bait and other treatments in suspected areas of activity.
- We will return to inspect and treat your property until your infestation is completely taken care of.
- To finish, we will create a thorough report describing the treatment and providing tips on preventing future roaches.
Preventing cockroach infestations
General preventive measures against cockroaches include keeping food stored in sealed containers, using garbage cans with a tight lid, frequently cleaning the kitchen, and vacuuming regularly. Always make sure to promptly attend to any water or moisture issues, including leaks. Lastly, make sure to seal entry points through which cockroaches are likely to enter into your home.
