Professional Cockroach Control in Helena, AL | Waynes

Waynes Solves Your Cockroach Control Problem in Helena

We say “pest”, most people think, “cockroach”, and they’d be correct to do so. Cockroaches are, perhaps, the definition of pests, and so naturally, Waynes’ cockroach control is a highly in-demand service that fixes one of the worst problems your Helena-based home or business can suffer from.

With over twenty-five native species of cockroaches crawling about, our Integrated Pest Management (IPM) service is ideal for tackling the problem. Our skilled cockroach exterminators utilize environmentally friendly, sustainable treatments. We make use of feed traps that the cockroaches consume and take back to their colony – the true source of the infestation. 

The work of our service professionals doesn’t just see a handful of cockroaches removed from your home or business. It sees the entire colony eradicated, leaving your property roach-free for the foreseeable future. If you’re wondering, “how do I get rid of roaches in the house fast?” the answer is simple - you call Waynes.

Be Prepared: The Early Warning Signs of Cockroaches in Alabama

The first sign most people have of a cockroach infestation is noticing one of them scurrying about their property. Unlike some creepy crawlies, where one bug doesn’t necessarily mean a call to a treatment service, we feel differently about cockroaches. Their colonies tend to be nearby, they multiply quickly, and a few unwanted guests can rapidly turn into an infestation if you don’t act fast and call Waynes’ cockroach extermination services.

Aside from seeing the dreaded bugs themselves, you may also notice black or brown droppings. Egg capsules may also appear near cabinets (where food is stored), in bathrooms, and in basements. Asthma and allergy sufferers may also be triggered by the cockroaches’ pheromones. This will smell “musty” to many people.

Take Steps to Prevent Cockroach Infestations

Once you have cockroaches in your house or business, it is often too late. You’re going to need to contact Waynes’ Helena services to eradicate the infestation. The best way to tackle cockroaches is to take preventative steps to ensure that there is nothing that interests them on your property. Waynes recommends the following measures:

  • Immediately clean up after eating, washing dishes and cooking utensils so there is no residue that would attract cockroaches.
  • Vacuum, mop, and sanitize weekly.
  • Declutter your home, specifically cardboard or paper, which cockroaches use for shelter.
  • Keep leftover food in Tupperware or other air-tight containers.
  • Regularly take out trash.

Common Cockroaches Found in the Helena Area

There are 25+ native cockroach species in Alabama, many of which can be found right here in Helena. Where do cockroaches live? They aren’t that fussy – they’ll live in workplaces and homes alike, although they prefer to set up shop nearby to a food source. Cockroaches are omnivores – they aren’t picky eaters and will eat almost anything. They can survive a month without food, too, but they generally need moisture. Dark, humid kitchens and bathrooms are ideal, as they can’t survive longer than a week without water.

The most common cockroaches in Alabama include:

  • Brown-Banded Cockroaches
  • German Cockroaches

Others include the American Cockroach, Oriental Cockroach, and Smoky Brown Cockroach.
