Getting Rid of Roaches

August 19, 2013

They have roamed this planet for more than 150 million years and go by the scientific name Blattaria. You know them simply as cockroaches. Whether it’s the American cockroach or the German cockroach or the Asian cockroach, they’re particularly ill-regarded amongst insects. They may well be the one of most loathed animals in the world. Harsh words, to be sure. But here’s the thing: It’s the height of summer in North America and that means the cockroaches are on the march.

In the New York City area, Health Department inspectors are out in force scrutinizing restaurants for the first signs of roaches in food establishments. Reports in the news pop up every week that the inspectors are finding the insects or their droppings. Such evidence is often enough to shutter an eatery immediately. Just the threat of contamination is enough to damage a small business. And the same risk extends to the sanitation of your home.

Cockroaches leave chemical trails behind, as well as emitting airborne pheromones for swarming and mating. These chemical trails transmit bacteria onto surfaces. Other cockroaches follow these trails to discover sources of food and water, as well as to detect where fellow roaches are gathering. In other words, if you see one, then you know that more are likely lurking, trailing contaminants behind them.

Here at Safeguard Chemical we have you covered. Using one of our long-lasting indoor sprays or foggers, such as Black Jack, Bug-Go, Safeguard or 707, you can make sure that the next roach you see in your home will be the last.
