Say Goodbye To Your Cockroach Infestation
If you live in Las Vegas, you have probably run across cockroaches. They are the most common pests around the world with over 4,000 species. Roaches have a reputation for their capability to endure anything. They are among the most troublesome pests that resist eradication. It is almost impossible to eliminate a cockroach infestation unless you are a pest control professional.
Some cockroach species can remain active for 30 days without eating, can go without air for over 30 minutes, can survive in water for 30 minutes and can survive radiation up to fifteen times the fatal dose for human beings. As experts in survival, cockroaches can prove a stubborn problem. Thought to have existed for over 200 million years, there are around 4,000 species of the bug across the world.
At Las Vegas Pest Control, we have the knowledge and experience to deal with any type of roach problem you may have. Although they can be difficult to eradicate, we offer effective solutions and a guaranteed service. Our full service is customized to eliminate any type of cockroach invading your space and prevent them from returning.
Professional Nevada Cockroach Extermination Services
There are many pesticides now available to buy over the counter but they don’t guarantee successful removal. Cockroaches are able to live in very hard-to-reach places while some species have become resistant to certain chemicals. This makes the task of eliminating them far more complex than that of many other pests. Because of this, we take great care during each of the four stages of pest control.
Cockroaches and Diseases
Cockroaches are associated with poor hygiene, filth, and dirt. Their feeding and nesting mean they can ingest and carry various pathogenic microorganisms, including fungi, bacteria, viruses which can contaminate surfaces, food, packaging and lead to food products deterioration or illnesses.
Cockroaches can spread various diseases. However, cockroaches are not direct vectors of diseases. Transmission happens indirectly, through contact or consumption of contaminated items. They play a supplementary role in spreading diseases. Cockroaches are proven carriers of microorganisms that cause the following diseases:
- Typhoid fever
Cockroaches also carry bacteria which causes other serious infections – not necessarily referred to as diseases.
Cockroaches also cause asthma and allergies. They have certain proteins in their bodies which can be allergic to certain people. When small particles from their bodies are spread through the air, the proteins are inhaled and can trigger asthma attacks in sensitive persons. Cockroach shed skins, saliva and feces can as well cause asthma and allergic reactions.
Types of Cockroaches in Las Vegas
Las Vegas climate is conducive for cockroaches. Although winters are wet, they are not freezing enough to kill cockroaches.
In Las Vegas and the surrounding area, only four main species commonly cause problems.
- Dark American cockroach (known as the palmetto or water bug)
- Oriental cockroach (black beetle)
- German cockroach
- Australian cockroach
The American Cockroach
This is the largest cockroach species in Las Vegas. They are reddish brown. They normally live in dark and humid places and can be found in bathrooms, kitchens, subfloors and roof voids. A mature American cockroach can fly. They are large and therefore easy to spot.
The Oriental Cockroach
They are dark brown or brown and shiny. They are also referred to as water bugs because they normally live in sewer and drainage areas.
The German Cockroach
They are light brown and are the smallest of the cockroaches found in Las Vegas. They are easy to identify by two dark longitudinal stripes on their pronotum. They also have wings, but they don’t fly. They are mostly found indoors and are active at night. During the day they hide in cracks and other dark places.
Although every species of cockroach has its estimated lifespan, cockroaches live for one year on average. Their lifespan depends on factors such as food availability, climate, and habitat. On average they can live for one week without water and one month without food.
Cockroaches have 3 developmental stages – egg, nymph, and adult. Eggs are hatched on ootheca (casings) where they are protected from the environment as they develop. Eggs become nymphs, and nymphs go through different stages until they reach maturity. Certain species grow wings while others don’t.
Cockroaches reproduce quickly – when you see one, you will want to contact Las Vegas pest control immediately. In case you are seeing several of them out in the open, they are probably many more infesting your property. Certain females cockroaches mate only once, but they will remain pregnant the rest of their lives.
