Why DIY Roach Control Won’t Stop Them From Coming Back

Living in Florida, you are bound to find cockroaches in or around your home. The first thing you may think to do is deal with the problem yourself. Why spend money on a pest control company if you can get rid of the roaches yourself? 

Unfortunately, cockroaches are resilient and relentless insects that will prevail through the majority of DIY extermination methods. Here’s our list of at-home remedies that you shouldn’t waste your efforts on. 

Faulty Methods

Roach Traps

As this is the most commonly used method, roach traps are a foolproof way you’ll catch a roach. However, even if you put one out every day, you’d continue to catch more roaches and the cycle would never end. 

To truly deal with the problem you need to get rid of all of the roaches, not just a few. Without a professional, you can’t determine the extent of your roach problem.

Store-Bought Pesticides

Unlike roach traps, store-bought pesticides can be completely ineffective. The more you use them, the more likely the roaches will actually become immune to them. That’s right, these resilient bugs will become immune to certain pesticides. 

Furthermore, spray products will cause the roaches to scatter but they will only retreat to a new place in your home rather than leave. Leave the pest control to Anti-Pesto professionals.

Natural Remedies 

The internet is full of natural remedies for roaches that often are flukes. Some websites even suggest you use cucumber peels! 

While these may seem like convenient options with less risk, you’ll still end up needing a pest control specialist with extermination products to deal with the entirety of the issue. Cockroaches are notoriously relentless and require a specific extermination process or the problem will worsen.

Risks of Extermination Products

If you have pets or children, you may be putting them in harm’s way if you misuse pesticides. DIY pest control can contain harsh, risky chemicals. Pesticides require extreme caution and warning labels need to be taken seriously. 

Anti-Pesto uses pest control methods that are safe for your family and the environment, meaning you don’t have to worry about harsh, dangerous chemicals.
