How do you get rid of roaches in your house without killing them?

Roaches are the most common household pest in the world. This is because they can survive harsh weather conditions, eat just about anything, and multiply rapidly. Not only do roaches leave an unsightly mess behind, but their droppings can cause allergies and illnesses .

There are numerous ways to kill roaches. Some of these methods include placing food items like cornmeal or boric acid where they congregate–this poisons them slowly over time. Other types of sprays release fumes that continuously act as a repellent until all the roaches have died out.

These techniques sound easy enough; however, if you don’t want to kill your unwanted guests, what other options are there?

The best way to keep your house safe from roaches is to have a professional pest control service implement a pest management plan for your house.

Pest control services can provide you with different alternatives to quickly eradicate these pesky invaders without the use of hazardous chemicals. Using traps, insecticide dusts, and natural remedies are just some of the many options you have when it comes to killing these bugs .

So, what should you do if all else fails?

Well, the only way to tell if your home has truly been invaded by roaches is by seeing them in person (finding droppings or egg cases does not always mean that they’re everywhere). When this happens, act immediately; seek help from professionals at Bon Accord Pest Control

Cockroach Q and As

Q: What are the signs of a cockroach infestation?

A: Cockroaches leave behind tell-tell signs of their presence. Look out for egg cases, droppings, and dead roaches in corners or behind appliances . An increased amount of these pests in your kitchen can suggest possible problems with your sewage system .

Q: What if I want to kill them myself?

A: Bon Accord Pest Control offers eco-friendly pest control that won’t harm you or your pets. However, before hiring a professional to take care of your roach problem, try the following steps

Clean and disinfect surfaces and be sure to dispose of trash properly. Use glue traps to capture them one-by-one . Bait stations can also help catch roaches as they come out at night .

We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.

We were lucky to have found Bon Accord, they responded very fast to our request and Gabriel was very helpful and informative. He made several visits and did his absolute best until the mice problem we had was gone. Highly recommended.
