Cockroaches in Florida: Prevention & Treatment
Cockroaches are pests that thrive living with people; they have learned to benefit from the food, shelter, and water our homes and businesses provide. Cockroaches thrive in Florida, and we have to protect our properties from the many different species of roaches living in our area. American cockroaches, Australian cockroaches, brown-banded cockroaches, Florida wood cockroaches, and German cockroaches all call Florida home. Water and food are the two biggest attractants for cockroaches; unfortunately, our yards and homes have both because we also need water and food to survive! Cockroaches are difficult to prevent because they don’t only find their way onto our properties independently, but they also hitchhike their way in inside of boxes, deliveries, furniture, and appliances. In multi-unit buildings, roaches move from unit to unit and floor to floor through walls, floors, drains, and vents! Cockroaches are persistent pests that are very difficult to prevent.
Though difficult to contend with, they are not pests that you can ignore, hoping they will go away on their own. Cockroaches should never feel comfortable in our homes because they won’t leave once they do. Cockroaches are dangerous because they spread diseases and bacteria, contaminate food, and in young children, trigger asthma attacks. Having large numbers of cockroaches in a home can also cause allergy symptoms and breathing problems, and an unpleasant musty odor to develop. When cockroaches do find a way inside, they usually hide out in kitchens, bathrooms, and crawl spaces, emerging from their hide spots at night to forage for food. Once cockroaches move inside, evicting them isn’t easy. To find and get rid of all the cockroaches in your house, it is always best to partner with a professional.
