Your Markham home may be in a desirable area of Clackamas, but it is vulnerable to cockroach infestation just the same. Protecting your home from common roach issues may seem simple (store food in airtight containers, avoid clutter, clean regularly) but once roaches have appeared, removing them can be far more complex than preventing them.
Cockroaches reproduce incredibly fast and can get out of hand quickly. A female cockroach lays up to 50 eggs at a time and can lay over 1,000 in a lifetime. An egg can go to full maturity and start reproducing within just 90 days.
Cockroaches can infest a home many different ways, but the most common is from eggs being brought into the home from groceries. It may not be possible to avoid a cockroach getting into your home, but there are certainly ways that you can better handle it if they do get in your home. Although cockroaches can infest the cleanest of kitchens, keeping all food sources cleaned up (scraps of food, grease from the stove, etc) becomes critical. A thoroughly clean kitchen can slow down the infestation and then a pest control treatment will be far more effective.
At Wildwoods Pest Control, we employ an approach to pest control called “Integrated Pest Management,” we believe that each home should be treated differently because each home is unique. Clackamas’s many varied neighborhoods each have specific needs and vulnerabilities. Wildwoods has served Portland area communities for several years and can create timely and effective solutions to all your wildlife and pest control issues.
