Foundation Pest Control

Cockroaches are one of the most common and resilient pests found in Memphis. Known for their ability to survive in various environments, they pose significant health risks and can be challenging to eliminate. This guide provides comprehensive information on cockroaches and effective ways to manage them.

Identifying Cockroaches

Cockroaches are typically dark brown or black with an oval-shaped body, long antennae, and spiny legs. The most common types found in Memphis include the American cockroach, German cockroach, and Oriental cockroach. They range from 1/2 inch to 2 inches in length, depending on the species.

Behavior and Habitats

Cockroaches are nocturnal insects that prefer dark, moist environments. They are often found in kitchens, bathrooms, basements, and other areas where food and water are readily available. Cockroaches can flatten their bodies to fit into narrow spaces, making it easy for them to hide in cracks and crevices.

Health Risks and Concerns

Cockroaches pose several health risks and concerns:

  • Disease Transmission: Cockroaches can carry and spread bacteria, viruses, and parasites, contaminating food and surfaces.
  • Allergies and Asthma: Cockroach droppings, saliva, and shed skin can trigger allergic reactions and exacerbate asthma symptoms.
  • Food Contamination: They can contaminate food with their droppings and saliva, leading to food poisoning and other health issues.
  • Unpleasant Odor: Cockroaches produce a musty odor that can permeate infested areas.

Prevention Tips

Preventing cockroaches from invading your home involves maintaining cleanliness and eliminating entry points:

  • Seal Entry Points: Ensure all cracks and gaps around windows, doors, and foundations are sealed.
  • Maintain Cleanliness: Keep your home clean and free of food debris, and store food in sealed containers.
  • Reduce Moisture: Fix leaky pipes, use dehumidifiers, and ensure proper ventilation in damp areas.
  • Remove Clutter: Eliminate clutter where cockroaches can hide, especially in kitchens, basements, and bathrooms.

Dealing with an Infestation

If you have a cockroach infestation, taking immediate action is important:

  • Clean Thoroughly: Regularly clean your home, paying special attention to kitchens and bathrooms.
  • Use Baits and Traps: Place cockroach baits and traps in areas where cockroaches are commonly seen.
  • Insecticides: Use insecticides labeled for cockroaches around the perimeter of your home and in problem areas.
  • Professional Pest Control: Contact Foundation Pest Control for expert assistance. Our professionals can identify the source of the infestation and provide effective treatment options.

  • I had an unexpected bed bug issue from travelling, and the Foundation Pest Control team gave me a competitive quote within 24 hours, and arrived to treat my house in two days. I had a new baby so the team even offered to assist me with putting mattress covers on the beds. I could not have asked for a better experience given the situation.

  • Jody and Foundation Pest Control saved a closing I was handling as a real estate closing attorney. We needed a Termite Clearance Letter the morning of the closing and he rescheduled what he was doing to get it done. He is the best!

  • Foundation has done an excellent job of taking care of us as both a commercial and residential client. A representative is always here at the scheduled time and is well liked by our entire staff. Foundation works on our schedule, and never complains when we have questions or special requests. Their level of service far exceeds any other pest control company we have worked with in the past. I would highly recommend Foundation Pest Control for treatment/service of any home or business.
