In this article, we’ll go over the reasons why cockroaches invade Providence homes and what you can do to keep them away year-round. At Encon LLC, we’re committed to providing top-of-the-line treatments that will protect your residential property from a wide range of common pests, including cockroaches.

What Types Of Cockroaches Invade Providence Properties?

Cockroaches in Rhode Island are often attracted to urban areas, which provides them with the resources they need to thrive. Our area is home to many types of cockroaches; however, the most common in our area are German cockroaches, American cockroaches, oriental cockroaches, and brown-banded cockroaches. American cockroaches are the largest of these species, while German cockroaches are most often within homes and businesses. All species of cockroaches are known for their resilient nature and tendency to survive do-it-yourself treatment options.

To keep cockroaches away from your Providence home for good, you’ll need professional cockroach control services from a trusted pest control provider like Encon LLC. Get in touch with us today to find out how we handle cockroach infestations. 

How Are Cockroaches Dangerous?

If there’s one thing that we can all agree on, it’s that cockroaches are disturbing pests you never want to find on your Providence property. In addition to having a disgusting appearance, cockroaches are also filthy pests that can make you sick. These common insects feed on a variety of unsanitary materials and pick up harmful bacteria on their bodies in the process. Unfortunately, when cockroaches infest your home, they bring all kinds of bacteria and pathogens with them. These pests are known to spread diseases such as salmonellosis, cholera, and typhoid fever.

Protect your home and family from these dangerous insects by putting into place a high-quality pest control plan from Encon LLC. We have what it takes to eliminate cockroaches and prevent new infestations from arising. Reach out to the technicians at Encon today to get started on your first treatment. 

How To Remove Factors That Attract Cockroaches

Two main resources draw cockroaches into Providence homes, food and moisture. One of the best ways you can reduce the number of cockroaches entering your home is to minimize the factors that may attract them initially:

  • Repair faucets and piping that drip to reduce excess moisture in your home.
  • Seal gaps under your doors and windows and add caulk to cracks in your foundation.
  • Store leftover foods in sealed, airtight containers or your refrigerator.
  • Sweep crumbs and food debris from your floors.
  • Clean regularly, especially under heavy appliances such as your oven and dishwasher.

No matter how many prevention tips you implement, cockroaches may still find a way inside. Contact Encon LLC today for help with your cockroach problems.
