Our trained experts know how to get rid of cockroaches effectively

While rats are dirty and wasps are deadly, there’s truly nothing like being infested by cockroaches. These insects live in filth and reproduce at a dizzying rate. They’re almost like something out of a horror movie. What we mean is that they can be almost impossible to get rid of. No matter what you do they keep on coming back again and again.

The reason for this is simple. Cockroaches are one of the most highly evolved pests known to man. These insects have been around for millions and millions of years. They have become extremely sophisticated when it comes to staying alive. They are able to live under almost any conditions. This includes extremely hot and also bitterly cold environments. In fact, cockroaches have even been found in places like Antarctica.

The reason why cockroaches are so difficult to exterminate

Not only that, cockroaches can live on almost no food or water at all. You may also have heard that cockroaches are strong enough to survive through a nuclear blast. And, by the way, this is actually true. While cockroaches could not survive if they were at the epicentre of a nuclear bomb, they can survive extremely high doses of radiation.

What’s more, a cockroach can also survive without its head for up to a week. All of these things mean that cockroaches are incredibly tenacious. This is why most people struggle to get rid of them permanently.

Cockroaches need professional intervention

The cockroaches process of evolution also applies to the methods used to kill them. What pest researchers have discovered in recent years is extremely disturbing. You see, we’ve been dealing with these insects for thousands of years. When modern pest control first started, simple pesticides were enough to kill them.

But, because cockroaches are so good at adapting, they have now built up an immunity to these pesticides. This includes some of the strongest and deadliest compounds. On top of all this, researchers have also found that single pesticides do not work. Today, pest exterminators are forced to combine various chemicals together to kill these insects. Only by creating chemical cocktails can they actually implement a solution.

This is not the type of stuff you can buy in shops. Anyone who has tried store bought cockroach poison will already know that it’s ineffective. You could use these pesticides widely, but the cockroaches will soon return. In order to truly get rid of them you’ll need professional help.
