American Cockroach

If you see a cockroach in your room, what should you do?

If a person spots a cockroach in the house, it should be trapped in a sealed container and reported to the local pest control company as soon as possible.

People often see this insect as a dirty bug but it can cause serious diseases. In fact, they are responsible for more than one-third of asthma cases among children under the age of 18. Some health effects from roach droppings include dermatitis and other skin rashes that can be quite uncomfortable.

“Cockroaches have been apparent human pathogens for at least 4,500 years,” said Dr Jonathan A. Bernstein, an allergist and immunologist at University of Cincinnati Academic Health Centre in Ohio .

Many people think that cockroaches carry disease by transferring germs on their legs or bodies to food surfaces or onto hands when they crawl across these surfaces. In fact, cockroaches eat the germs and then carry them on their body when they crawl into your food or onto your desk to eat crumbs. They do so by regurgitating a pasty substance containing a large amount of germ proteins which can lead to allergic reactions in humans according to researchers at the University of Kentucky .

Reasons why you should hire professional pest control                                     

There are many reasons why you should hire professional pest control service for cockroach removal from home or office, especially if you have asthma or other respiratory issues. Some of these reasons are listed below.

   Cockroaches can foul up your food and damage fabric, papers, books and other surfaces. Therefore, they should be exterminated as soon as possible to avoid further health problems for people with respiratory issues

 If you have pets, regular pest control companies won’t use synthetic pesticides to kill cockroaches because it is toxic for pets too!     Professional pest control services specialising in chemical-free treatments will make sure there are no dangerous residues left behind after the treatment is over.

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.
