Roach Control in Akron

Pest Solutions Backed by Over a Decade of Experience

Residents of Akron, Canton, and cities across northeastern Ohio have always battled cockroaches. The combination of food, trash, damp weather, and warm houses creates a perfect environment for infestations.

Cockroaches are among the most common and most hated pests in the Buckeye State and every part of the country. They dart out from dark recesses and contaminate clean floors and countertops with germs that they contract in drains and sewers. Infestations are annoying, but they also create health concerns and other sinister problems.

Accel Pest & Termite Control is here to help. We are a roach control service in Akron that will eliminate this problem at the source so that you never have to turn on the lights and see these insects scatter into cracks and crevices.

Common Cockroach Types

Roaches are the predominant pests in Wayne County and the surrounding areas. There are several different kinds that can be found in your home:

  • German cockroaches are tan or light brown.
  • American cockroaches are reddish-brown. These species measure less than 1 inch long.
  • Australian cockroaches are slightly larger than the American variety, but they are a similar color.
  • Asian cockroaches range from tan to dark brown.

Both Australian and Asian cockroaches typically live outside where they feed on damp and rotting vegetation. Inside local homes, roaches are typically seen in kitchens, bathrooms and laundry areas where they can find food or water.

Roach Control Problems in Ohio

Cockroaches multiply rapidly when they have access to food, water, and shelter. A few roaches can create an infestation quickly if the problem isn't controlled. These repulsive pests have many nasty habits that have homeowners quickly reaching for sticky traps and chemical sprays. Unfortunately, sticky traps only catch a small number of roaches, so they don't offer long-term relief. Pesticides are more effective, but they can hurt pets and people, especially children who play on the floor.

If you reduce or eliminate the roach infestation on your own, you will be left with part of the problem. These pests often die behind walls in large numbers. Cockroaches carry food and germs wherever they go. Piles of cockroach carcasses create unpleasant odors that could trigger asthma attacks. Dead roaches become a food source for other pests, which starts the cycle again.

Cockroaches are difficult to eliminate because they spend most of their time in hard-to-reach hideaways. That's why infestations should be addressed by pest management professionals. If you see a few stray roaches today, you might have an infestation tomorrow. Don't overlook the problem or take a wait-and-see approach. Cockroaches pick up deadly germs in drains and sewers. Then, these illnesses are transmitted to people who touch contaminated surfaces or eat infected foods.

The dangers of infestations increase every day that you ignore the problem. A pest management professional can accurately assess the scope of the infestation, identify the root cause, and implement an effective treatment plan.
