Reasons to Call Pegasus Pest Control to Handle Cockroach Problems:


Cockroaches Spread Diseases to Humans

It’s well known that Cockroaches are often found mostly in dirty environments. Cockroaches will eat just about anything. They love rotten food and because of this they often carry germs, bacteria, and other pathogens that can transmit to humans due to contact with the urine or feces or shed skin of cockroaches, mostly by eating food they have contaminated, or even while cleaning.


The diseases cockroaches are known to indirectly spread include but are not limited to, salmonella, typhoid fever, cholera, dysentery, the plague, and the bacteria that can cause strep throat and staph infections. Cockroach infestations have also been linked to triggering asthma attacks and cause allergic reactions. Asthma Sufferers should always be vigilant against cockroaches and cockroach infestations.


Cockroaches are Almost Impossible to Catch!

Once a cockroach senses a threat, it can run up to 1 meter per second and change direction 25 times per second! This speed of cockroaches is equal to you running the 100-meter dash in a second while constantly changing direction…

Catching roaches to stomp on is almost impossible!


Cockroaches Can Live for Over a Month Without Eating!

Adult cockroaches can survive a month without water and a few months without food.

So just cleaning up and cleaning the kitchen might not help at all! Cockroaches will simply wait it out for you as a homeowner to leave food out or accidentally drop crumbs.


Cockroaches Eat just About Anything!

But even if you never, ever leave food out – Roaches are very adept scavengers, they will eat just almost anything to survive like oil, grease, soap, leather, and even scarier, your hair and fingernails while you sleep!


Cockroaches are extremely destructive, in your home or office roaches will also damage other items, including furniture, fabrics, books, and important documents.


Roaches are Prolific, they Multiply Very Fast

A single female cockroach can produce hundreds of babies in her lifetime.

Prepare to hear your worst nightmare: cockroaches can multiply on their own for years without meeting a member of the opposite sex! They can multiply through asexual reproduction known as parthenogenesis — a popular method of reproducing for most roaches

Development from eggs to adults takes three to four months. Cockroaches live up to a year, and the female may produce up to eight egg cases in a lifetime; in favorable conditions, she can produce 300 to 400 offspring. Other species of cockroaches, however, can produce far more eggs, and in some cases, a female needs to be impregnated only once to be able to lay eggs for the rest of her life


Roaches Really Know How to Hide!

Approximately 20–48% of homes with no visible sign of cockroaches have detectable cockroach allergens in dust.


Telltale Signs of a Cockroach infestation:

Unfortunately, cockroaches REALLY know how to hide. They are most active at night, but almost impossible to find during the day. They are one of the fastest animals on earth for their size and can dash underneath a cupboard or carpet in an instant. The pheromones in cockroach waste will very quickly attract other cockroaches to the area, and once an infestation has started, they will automatically attract other cockroaches and make it almost impossible to get rid of merely by cleaning up an area.


Unfortunately, once you notice cockroaches, you can be certain that there is much more hiding out of sight. Here are some common signs of cockroach infestations, but the best way to know if you have an actual problem is to call Pegasus pest Control. Pegasus will give you a free inspection and from beginning to end.


Cockroaches Stink!

Cockroach infestations create a foul smell that lingers in the areas of infestation. The smell might be stronger in the bathroom, kitchen, or basement, depending on the size of the infestation, or the area where they like to hide.


Cockroaches Leave Smear Marks and Droppings!

Have a closer look after you’ve swept the floor, if your dust pile has an unusual number of brown particles, these might be roach droppings. They’re about 2mm long and look a bit like pepper grains or tiny dark rice grains.

Cockroaches make walls and floors look dirty and disgusting by leaving smear marks behind. When cockroaches have plenty of water, their waste is more liquid than solid which results in dark brown smears. Essentially, cockroach poop smears.


Roaches Also Shed Their Skins

In the nymph stage, roaches shed their skins multiple times as they grow. These skins are disgusting, light-colored, semi-transparent, and are mostly found near the nesting area. If you find a collection of skins, you’re probably close to where the majority of the roaches are hiding.


Cockroaches Bite Humans in their Sleep!

They bite humans and eat fingernails and hair and even eyebrows while you sleep. Worse yet, Cockroaches can get inside your ears! The thought of a cockroach crawling all over you while you sleep and leaving traces of feces, roach urine, or even shed skin that carries nasty disease and pathogens is more than most people can tolerate. Watch out for bite marks on your body.
