When faced with a pest infestation, especially cockroaches, it is important to identify their nesting areas so that you can properly address the problem. The first question that you must answer in the process of pest control is: Where are you most likely to encounter cockroaches in your home? If you are able to find the roach-dwelling areas, then it will be much easier to identify the species that has invaded your home and call cockroach exterminator Burlington.
This, in turn, makes it much easier for a pest control specialist to create a plan of action to combat the infestation. Each of the five types of cockroaches that are classified as pests build their nests in unique places. For example, the American cockroach is attracted to heat and can most often be found in and around heating vents and sewer pipes.
The German cockroach, one of the most common types of invasive bugs, can be found in warm, moist places such as tight cracks in kitchens and bathrooms. The Brownbanded cockroach tends to nest throughout a dwelling without any particular preferences for warmth or moisture. The Oriental cockroach prefers to build its nests below ground level, in basements or storage areas that are not often disrupted.
The one common factor in all roach nesting areas is that they prefer dark areas and rarely venture into bright sunlight or even artificial light. One of the easiest ways to find cockroaches in your home is to shine a bright light in an area where you suspect roaches to be and see where they scurry. Oftentimes, they will lead you directly to their nests. In short, any place that is dark, moist, warm, or has food stored in it will be a potential nesting ground for roaches. Armed with this information, you can identify an infestation and contact a pest control specialist in order to eliminate the cockroaches.
