January 15, 2023
Of all the common pests in Chicago, cockroaches are some of the worst. They are gross and disgusting, and seeing one crawl across your floor can make you want to move.
Fortunately, Sleep Tight Pest Extermination is here to help solve your cockroach problems. We are experts in Chicago pest control and know what to do to protect your home and your family from cockroaches and all the issues they can cause.
How To Tell If You Have A Cockroach Infestation
Cockroaches are pests that can be difficult to detect. They prefer to hide in the dark, damp, unused areas of your home and usually come out at night. When they appear in your living room or kitchen, it signifies that many more cockroaches are hiding where you can’t find them. Here are other signs of a cockroach infestation that include:
- Cockroach droppings that look like black dust or pepper flakes
- Smear marks on baseboards and horizontal surfaces
- Egg capsules
- Shed skin
- Damage to food packaging
If you see any of these signs, call us at Sleep Tight Pest Extermination immediately and let our trained experts inspect your home and find the source of your cockroach problem.
Why Roaches Are So Dangerous To Your Health
Cockroaches are creepy and disgusting. They can make you feel uncomfortable in your own home. Worse, they are a potentially dangerous pest that can cause many health issues.
Cockroach feces, saliva, and body parts contain proteins that can cause allergic reactions and trigger asthma attacks, and this is especially true in children and people with sensitive respiratory systems. Another danger of having cockroaches is that they can spread 33 kinds of bacteria, six parasitic worms, and at least seven other human pathogens.
Keeping you and your family safe is imperative. Call Sleep Tight Pest Extermination today to safeguard your home.
