When to Call a Cockroach Exterminator in New Orleans, SE Louisiana and Mississippi by Presto-X Cockroaches are one of the most common and horrifying things for a homeowner to find. They are considered one of the most disgusting and disease-ridden pests one can find in the home. They breed quickly, spread disease with every step, have the ability to fly, and are notoriously hard to kill, besides for being pretty ugly. So, if you have a cockroach infestation in your home, what can be done about it? Is it something you should handle yourself, or should you seek professional help?

Signs of a Cockroach Infestation

If you see one cockroach, chances are you have a lot more in your building. Here are some indications you have a cockroach issue:

  • Seeing just one roach is a strong indication of an infestation. Check out other dark and damp areas in your home that a cockroach might frequent, such as under sinks or in basements and crawl spaces.
  • Smelling a foul or musty odor is often a big indication of a major infestation.
  • Seeing a cockroach exoskeleton or its eggs is another major sign you have a cockroach problem.

The Downfalls of DIY Cockroach Treatment

When you realize you have cockroaches, you want them out of your property as soon as possible. DIY methods simply won’t cut it when it comes to treating an active infestation. Cockroaches only need a few weeks to turn into a whole swarm, becoming more and more difficult to eradicate with each passing day. Cockroaches will consume anything organic available to them, taking advantage of every nook and cranny in your building. For this reason and more, it’s important to leave the extermination efforts to the professionals.
