Cockroach Control

Montgomery County Cockroach 

The presence of cockroaches can be unsettling. Their often unsightly appearance is one reason, but they present more than just an aesthetic issue. These pests are a health hazard and can cause damage to both residential and commercial properties. At M.A.D. Exterminators, we employ eco-friendly Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques in our safe and efficient removal of cockroaches.

For cockroach control in Montgomery County call (610) 600-9202. We also serve Norristown, Chester County, New Jersey, and Delaware.

The Dangers of Cockroach Infestations

Ignoring a cockroach problem can lead to several serious complications, including:

  • Health risks: Cockroaches carry bacteria and viruses that can contaminate food and surfaces, leading to infections. Additionally, they can trigger allergic reactions in vulnerable people. 
  • Contamination: The presence of cockroaches can significantly increase the likelihood of foodborne diseases. They contaminate food and kitchen surfaces with their droppings, saliva, and shedding body parts. This contamination can lead to illnesses if ingested.
  • Asthma exacerbation: For individuals, especially children, with asthma or respiratory sensitivities, cockroach allergens can be particularly harmful. These allergens are known to aggravate asthma symptoms, leading to increased frequency and severity of attacks. 
  • Property damage: Cockroaches have been known to chew through insulation, wallpaper, and even electrical wiring, which not only requires costly repairs but also raises the risk of electrical fires. 
  • Business impact: For businesses, especially those in the food and hospitality industries, a cockroach infestation can be devastating to their reputation. It can lead to loss of customers, negative reviews, and even legal consequences if health codes are violated. 

Taking Action When You See a Cockroach

The first step to take is to call our office. We offer same-day scheduling and emergency service as extensively as our staff and fleet of nine pest-control vehicles is able to accommodate. 

Then, the following steps can both help in the interim period before our techs arrive, and serve the cause of future prevention: 

  • Limit food access: Store food in sealed containers, clean up spills immediately, and regularly dispose of garbage.
  • Eliminate hiding spots: Reducing shelter options for cockroaches involves clearing clutter, sealing cracks and openings in the walls and floors, and repairing leaks, to eliminate moisture sources.
  • Maintain cleanliness: Regular sanitation is key to preventing cockroach infestations. This includes frequent vacuuming, wiping down surfaces, and keeping areas free of food debris. 
  • Natural deterrents: Employing eco-friendly repellents such as peppermint oil or diatomaceous earth can help keep cockroaches at bay without resorting to harsh chemicals.
