It isn't your imagination, rats and roach problems are on the rise in Hawaii. We're starting to get a lot more requests to deal both of these pests. The problem is not only an issue of control, but also an issue of public awareness. If stronger control measures were put into place, Honolulu and other urban centers in Hawaii could drastically reduce the harmful effects of these both rats and roaches. Another problem is that most people don't realize the serious nature of these two infesting pests. Sure, we can all agree that they're disgusting, but it is amazingly easy to turn a blind eye.
Roaches are not house guests anyone should tolerate! These pests are carriers of many different diseases and if they enter your Hawaii home, they will be challenging to evict. Hawaii cockroaches that we deal with include the American cockroach, the German cockroach and the Surinam cockroach, along with 16 other species!
So you’re just minding your own business, making a sandwich for lunch. As you reach for the bottle of mustard, you look across the counter and see a giant cockroach go scurrying by. After letting out a high pitched scream (yes, we all do it!), it’s time to consider contacting the Honolulu exterminators at Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions. A sighting of just one cockroach may not seem like enough to warrant a pest control professional, but the presence of just one cockroach inside your home can signify a problem. These insects are known for spreading disease because they pick up bacteria and pathogens on their bodies as they travel through sewers, over garbage and animal feces. These pathogens can then be transferred to your kitchen counter, your food prep surfaces, your dishes and your eating utensils and then eventually to you, making you and your family sick. Setting up your first inspection with a pest control company in Hawaii is the first step, but is there anything else you can do to help stop roaches inside your home? Here are a few quick roach control tips to limit any populations inside your home before the pest control pros get there.
