Cockroaches are a pantry pest that could be wiped out by a Broken Arrow exterminator. These insects are tropical insects that love the temperatures that we keep our home at. Anywhere from 60 to 80° is prime time for this insect just like it is for us. Because of that they find their way into our homes and enjoy our heat and air conditioning and consume our food and water and shelter. So because of that, in this article, let’s take a good hard look at cockroaches, their life cycle, and what you and your Broken Arrow exterminator can do to stop these insects.


Cockroaches work as the cleanup crew for nature. They will consume many different things that fall to the forest floor, including dead animals, droppings, and other disgusting filthy things. Because of this, they’re always in contact with lots of bacteria and other disease causing viruses. So when a cockroach makes its way through your pantry and touches your food, it can spread these diseases directly to you, and your loved ones. In addition, these insects shed their exoskeleton on a regular basis. This constant molting creates a dust that it’s really bad to breathe. It’s found that in many apartment complexes that have over populations of cockroaches, childhood asthma is three times the norm. Because of this important fact, we protect our love ones from these insects by calling your Broken Arrow exterminator as soon as you can.


Getting rid of these insects can be some what tricky. Many over-the-counter solutions that are available for dealing with these insects are a spray can pesticide, but unfortunately they can often make the problem much worse. Aerosol cans are full of repellent pesticides that these insects can sense when they get near it. So when you spray the sprays extensively, you can trap cockroaches in a wall void or behind an appliance. Here they’ll continue to reproduce until their numbers get much larger. After about 30 days or so these repellent sprays will break down and now these insects can come out in full force. When you’re done, you’ll have more of a problem when you started. 

Because of this, it’s important that you call your Broken Arrow exterminator. They have many different solutions that can not only kill the bugs that you see, but they can carry the sprays and baits back to their harborage point and feed them to other cockroaches, including their young. This can wipe out the problem at its source. Check out our reviews!
