Cockroaches are hardy bugs that have become even more difficult to destroy as they’ve evolved over time. In fact, roaches have become so tough, rumor has it, that they can outlast a nuclear fallout. Looking to science for guidance, it’s a fact that they can survive for a week without a head. So, it’s easy to understand why using chemicals to spray on visible cockroaches is an ineffective approach. 

Although cockroaches can be found across the country, a new study showed that Birmingham, AL has the eighth-highest number nationwide! Roaches are attracted to heat and humidity and don’t like the cold, so it’s not surprising that Alabama is where they like to frequent.

Most people would agree that roaches are without a doubt, one of the worst kinds of pests to find in your Birmingham home or business. That’s true if you have German cockroaches, American cockroaches, smoky brown roaches, brown-banded cockroaches, or another species of this dreaded pest. More than twenty-five native species have invaded our region—and none of them are guests you’d like to invite. Regardless of the species, Waynes Pest Control in Birmingham will take care of the problem for you through the use of our integrated pest management (IPM) approach. 

What, exactly, is IPM? This approach uses environmentally friendly, sustainable treatments, and, at Waynes Pest Control, we use feed traps that fit well within this philosophy. Cockroaches consume the bait and take it back to the original source of the cockroach infestation: their colony. When they do that, the entire roach population can then be eradicated.

Early Warning Signs of Cockroaches in Birmingham, AL

If you have a cockroach presence, you’ll probably see them scurrying about. If you just see a couple of them, there’s likely to be an entire creepy crawly cockroach infestation already multiplying in numbers that you can’t see yet.

If you haven’t spotted many roaches, but still suspect you may be encountering a problem, look for brown or black droppings and egg capsules near cabinets and other places where you store food. If people in your house smell a musty odor, that’s likely from cockroach pheromones. If they have allergies and asthma, these pheromones may trigger or exacerbate symptoms.

Cockroaches love dirt. They love grime. So, cleaning and sanitizing your home can help to put the “not welcome here” mat out for roaches. Don’t keep food lying around, and don’t keep dirty dishes in your sink or crumbs on your countertops. Don’t leave your trash indoors for any length of time, and don’t pile up cardboard or paper that cockroaches can use for shelter.

Our tips to help keep roaches out of your home include:

  • Immediately after eating, put leftovers away in airtight containers and wash dishes and cooking utensils.
  • Clean thoroughly each week: vacuuming, mopping, and sanitizing.
  • Don’t hold on to paper, cardboard, and other materials that roaches can use to shelter themselves. Declutter these items.
  • Regularly take out your trash, putting it in tightly lidded garbage cans kept away from your home’s foundation.

If you don’t want cockroaches in your home or business (and, who would?), the best approach is to proactively keep them out in the first place. Once they’re inside your property, it’s often too late for you to solve the problem by yourself. When this happens, contact us for professional Birmingham pest control for roaches.

Cockroaches are nearly indestructible critters that can create serious health hazards. That’s why businesses, especially restaurants, need to shut down when a roach presence is spotted. The same diseases that roaches can spread in businesses can be present in Birmingham homes: cholera, salmonella, dysentery, typhoid fever, listeriosis, the plague, and even leprosy.

Alabama is home to twenty-five native cockroach species with many of them found in Birmingham. They seek food sources in homes and businesses—and these omnivores paint the definition of “food” with a pretty broad brush, not being fussy eaters. They can survive for a month without food and about a week without water. They gravitate to humid kitchens and bathrooms to get the moisture they need.

Once these hardy critters get into your home or business, getting rid of the cockroach infestation can be challenging. Fortunately, Waynes’ pest control for roaches is an ultra-effective solution provided by our specialized roach experts.

To get the quality cockroach pest control you need, reach out by phone at (205) 985-7009 or contact us online. With Waynes Pest Control and these at-home prevention techniques, you can stay roach-free.

Birmingham Roach Control FAQs

By the time a cockroach infestation is established in your house, it will be nearly impossible to fix it with a DIY approach. The more effective solution is to reach out to a professional roach control company in Birmingham, like Waynes Pest Control. You can contact us by calling (205) 985-7009 or filling out our online form. We use environmentally friendly, sustainable roach treatments that really work.

You may see the cockroaches themselves—dark brown creatures with flat, oval bodies, small heads with a shield-like covering, and six long, spiny legs. Specifics can vary a bit by species, but that’s their general appearance. If you spot a couple of roaches, there’s a good chance there may be a cockroach infestation because these pests live in colonies and multiply rapidly.

Instead of (or in addition to) seeing the actual roaches, you may spot droppings: brown or black in hue. You may see egg capsules near where you store food or oily smears on your baseboards. Although not everyone can detect the musty smell of their pheromones, some people can—and people prone to allergies or asthma attacks may notice how they’re being triggered by something in your house.

If conditions in a home were ripe for cockroach infestations before—and still are—then the pests will certainly try to come back in to get the food, moisture, and shelter they desire. Because we know that can happen, to protect your home, Waynes Pest Control in Birmingham provides year-round exterior treatments to prevent these awful pests from slithering back inside to settle down and start a new cockroach infestation.

Cockroaches are attracted to Alabama because of the warmer weather—and although they’re present all year round—they may be especially problematic in the colder months (say, from October through February). That’s because they’re seeking warmer shelter indoors, including in homes and businesses in Birmingham. In response, Waynes Pest Control provides Birmingham pest control for roaches all year long—during all seasons.

At Waynes Pest Control we eradicate cockroaches through environmentally friendly pest control that’s as effective as it is sustainable. With our Birmingham pest control for roaches, we use bait that cockroaches ingest and share with others in their colony—which leads to their rapid eradication. And, because cockroach infestations can be so difficult to eradicate, we take a comprehensive approach. Since 95 percent of cockroach problems begin outdoors, we create exclusionary techniques to keep them out. We form a ten-foot perimeter around your Birmingham home and brush off your home’s exterior. In critical areas indoors, we use environmentally friendly treatments to exterminate them. Lastly, post-treatments and roach prevention techniques can keep these uninvited guests away for good.

Waynes Pest Control creates customized solutions for each customer to meet their unique needs within their budget. To get a no-obligation quote for your one-of-a-kind situation and to benefit from our highly effective, environmentally friendly Birmingham roach pest control services, reach out to us!
