What is the American cockroach? - Cockroach facts
The American cockroach (Periplanta americana) is the largest species of common cockroach that originated in Africa and now can now be found all over the world. It can grow about 4 centimeters in length and has an overall reddish brown coloration. The American cockroach generally resides outdoors, but when conditions outdoors become harsh, it moves indoors and can infest buildings. Because of their large size, American cockroaches can often be seen at night feeding in areas where there is a food source, then scattering when made visible. For an insect it has large mandibles, and this cockroach bites anything that it sees as a food source including other cockroaches. Females lay many eggs at once and upon hatching, the developing nymph can take up to 600 days to molt into an adult. Adults can then live for about 15 months, so if the conditions are right, population explosions of this insect do not take long periods of time. The American cockroach is one of the several species of cockroaches in Dubai and is one of the most common reason households in Dubai need pest control services.
How to get rid of cockroaches such as the American cockroach
A service that operates as a cockroaches killer (that is, a pest control operator service) would have to explore several possibilities for controlling American cockroaches. An evaluation would be made of exactly where the sources of entry into the building are and where the most concentrated areas of infestation exist. One effective technique that can be used for controlling American cockroaches is a cockroaches gel baits or cockroaches trap placed throughout the home or building in order to rapidly get rid of an infestation. These types of control are often preferable as they require minimal use of chemicals and are minimally invasive. Gel baits are some of the most effective treatments available. Because cockroaches live together in groups, the poison gel is shared among all individuals and gets rid of the entire infestation. However, with chemical sprays only individuals that come in contact with the spray are killed. Pest control companies such as Akkad pest control services are knowledgeable in such means of control and can help get rid of these or any other infestation that you may have.
