Cockroach Control 101: Nashville's Comprehensive Handbook for Success


Cockroach Control 101: Nashville's Comprehensive Handbook for Success

If you are seeing signs of roaches in your Nashville home or business, you may hope you can simply ignore the problem and have these pesky insects go away on their own. Unfortunately, cockroach removal doesn’t work this way. Once these insects are inside your building, they typically aren’t going anywhere without proactive actions on your part.

The best proactive step you can take is to have the team at Urbanex visit your property and assess the problem that you are having with cockroaches. Our team has more than 25 years of combined experience with pest control, and we put our expertise and know-how to work for your benefit.

Visible Signs Of Roaches: How To Identify An Infestation

How do you know if you have a cockroach infestation? Because they move primarily at night, you might not see the actual live insects. Instead, some of the signs that roaches are moving around your kitchen and around other parts of your Nashville home when you’re sleeping include:

  • Discarded roach body parts
  • Discarded roach skins from molting
  • Feces from cockroaches, which look like ground pepper
  • Musty odor from a large infestation
  • Dead roaches floating in a sink or dishwasher

If you have any suspicion that you have cockroaches, let our team at Urbanex know. We are happy to go to your property and do an inspection that tells you exactly what is happening. Should we not find signs of roaches, we will let you know. If we do find signs of a problem with roaches, we’ll let you know the steps we can take to eliminate these insects.

Health Risks Of Cockroaches: Understand The Dangers They Pose

Figuring out how to get rid of cockroaches in Nashville is important because of the health problems they can introduce to you and your family.

Roaches move through areas that have a lot of dangerous bacteria, such as trash piles and sewers. They then can carry this bacteria into your home, contaminating food and food preparation areas. Should you ingest the bacteria, you could end up with diseases like salmonellosis, cholera, listeriosis, and more.

Five Tips To Prevent Future Roach Problems In Your Home

After our team at Urbanex performs cockroach control work for you, you then should take steps to keep these insects away.

  • Store your food in tightly sealed containers to keep roaches from contaminating it.
  • Clean up crumbs or other soils in the kitchen or bathroom to keep cockroaches from finding any type of food source.
  • If you have a compost pile, keep it sealed or farther away from your home.
  • Do not leave trash cans uncovered that could draw roaches into this area before they try to move into the home.
  • Finally, call us to set up regular inspections so we can catch any problems early. 

We can deliver inspections quarterly, annually, or over another period of time. A greater frequency gives us a better chance of eliminating the problem quickly before the numbers increase. We also deliver one-time treatments if that fits your needs better.
