Discreet Pest Control Northampton for Controlling Cockroaches

Cockroaches are unwelcome dinner guest on any premises. If you spot a cockroach, or even a colony hiding behind your fridge, then B-Discreet Pest Control should be your first call to help get rid of the problem for you.

While having cockroaches in your Northampton home or business can be very distressing, they can be very difficult to get rid of using DIY methods. The best course of action is to bring in a professional pest control company, such as B-Discreet, so you can eradicate the infestation before it gets worse.

One of the main risks from cockroaches is that they are disease-carrying insects that pose a serious threat to human health. They carry many bacteria, such as salmonella, staphylococcus and streptococcus – and more!

Cockroaches are very hardy creatures that can move around using the sewer system and can climb drains to get into homes and businesses. This means that while they are foraging for food in your kitchen or food preparation area, they will contaminate any surface that they touch, including worktops, utensils and food.

Why cockroaches are so dangerous

As cockroaches move around they will disgorge partially digested food and droppings along the way, meaning they leave behind a trail of harmful bacteria and germs that can easily be picked up by people using the contaminated surfaces or utensils to prepare food.

While they are bothersome to homeowners, they are even more serious for business owners as nothing can ruin your reputation as quickly as having cockroaches, especially if you are in catering, hospitality or the food and drink industry.

Northampton-based business owners especially should be on the lookout for any signs of cockroaches and get them under control before the problem gets out of hand and the business is negatively affected.

There are also severe fines imposed on businesses that fail on health and safety grounds when failing to deal with any pest problem, but especially cockroaches. Environmental Health Officers can close down any business that doesn’t have adequate pest control systems in place.

How B-Discreet Pest Control can help

With over 4,600 different species of cockroaches in the world, it is important to bring in a professional company such as B-Discreet Northampton to identify the species and effectively eradicate your cockroach problem.

For most businesses involved in food preparation, the small brown-banded cockroach is quite common and can be found hiding in warm and humid conditions, such as kitchen air ducts, heating vents, ceilings, behind fridges, ovens, freezers and appliance motors.

As cockroaches tend to be nocturnal, you may never see them during the day. However, you should look for droppings, egg cases, shed-skins, very strong smells, damaged food and packaging. If you spot these signs then it is time to call B-Discreet Pest Control.

Cockroaches are notoriously difficult to get rid of by yourself so a DIY solution is never a good idea. Cockroaches can go for weeks without food, but they need water to survive. This is why it can be incredibly hard to get a DIY insecticide into them.

B-Discreet Pest Control is a professional pest management company with years of knowledge and experience in treating cockroach infestations in homes and businesses. We have access to a range of professional-grade treatment solutions that are not available to the general public and are far more effective at getting rid of cockroaches.
