Cockroaches are among the most common, and most hated pests in Dubai. They’re fast creatures who can survive without sustenance for unnaturally long periods of time. They are able to multiply quickly, which means they are always a high infestation risk. Worst of all, they are incredibly resilient and can thrive in environments that would be inhospitable to most other pests. They can even develop resistance to pesticides and cockroach gels and are able to withstand 900 times their own weight in pressure. They are nature’s most adaptive pest yet and usually tend to have some ability to avoid even the best cockroach killer methods.
Seeing even a single small cockroach in your home is enough of a sign that there may be many more cockroaches nearby, no doubt hiding in inaccessible areas, such as inside walls, in and around piping, and other such areas. You can generally find them under or behind refrigerators and stoves, and anywhere with access to food scraps. To find out where the cockroaches are coming from you can try flicking lights on and off in a room. This will alert any roaming roaches and cause them to run back to their colony. This helps you identify the best places to place cockroach gel.
The most effective DIY ways to curb small infestations are often considered to be using cockroach gel (specifically good quality brands like Advion cockroach gel) in areas where cockroaches are likely to happen by, such as under doors and in all sorts of nooks and crannies around the house. This technique can work, depending on the severity of the cockroach problem in question. However, this technique on its own, will more often than none only reduce the number of cockroaches, rather than completely eliminating them. Their high reproductive capabilities also mean that any progress made is usually undone within a few weeks.
Glue traps are also another effective method, as cockroaches cannot build up a resistance to them. A high-quality glue trap will let out a smell that attracts cockroaches, trapping them in the glue and allowing you to dispose of them easily.
There is no 100% effective DIY cockroach killer technique, due to their high adaptability. An experienced pest control expert, however, will be able to pick and combine the right techniques to deal with a cockroach problem. It is your safest bet to resort to a roach control expert from a reliable pest control company in Dubai.
What you can do is monitor your home, secure your trash and seal any entrances into your home (such as cracks in the walls or the spaces under doors). Monitoring your home is crucial because it allows you to act fast if you notice that an infestation is starting. Acting fast will ensure that you can potentially stop the infestation before it gets out of control, and if you decide to call a pest control company, they will be able to get the job done quicker and more efficiently than if the infestation had gotten enough time to grow.
You may be tempted to buy cockroach gel and use it yourself, but depending on how you use it and the kind of infestation you are dealing with, not to mention the species of the cockroach in question, you will be met with varying results. Even using the best brands, such as Advion cockroach gel, can prove to be ineffective if not used correctly. The last thing you want is the cockroaches in your home developing resistance and becoming that much harder to get rid of.
The best way to deal with cockroaches is to have an expert examine the situation carefully and tackle the root of the issue by drafting a tailored treatment plan. Such a plan combines a variety of effective treatments in order to completely eradicate the cockroaches with their eggs and make their hiding places inhospitable for them. When implemented correctly, these treatments should prevent cockroaches from coming back or reproducing any time soon.
