Why Palmetto Bugs are Targeted by Cockroach Exterminator Services

You don’t need to be a bug expert to know cockroaches can pose a threat to your home and health. However, you might not know that Palmetto bugs are usually American cockroaches, one of the numerous types of roaches that can infiltrate both indoor and outdoor spaces.

American cockroaches can range up to a terrifying three inches in length. They’ll look for food anywhere but prefer damp areas like the kitchen, garage, and attic. Outside, you may catch them hanging out in flower beds and certain types of trees including the palmetto tree, from which they get their name.

If you’re finding yourself in need of palmetto control services, you may be encountering German, Oriental, and Brown-banded cockroaches, which are additional variants that may require more in-depth intervention methods to eradicate effectively.

Diseases Carried by Palmetto Bugs and Roaches

Beyond being unsightly, palmetto bugs and roaches are carriers of harmful pathogens, including cholera, dysentery, and salmonella. Their presence can trigger allergies and respiratory conditions, making professional pest control essential for protecting your family’s health.

While many of these are considered “food-borne” pathogens, roaches can play a key role in spreading these in your home and around your property. These pests can also trigger allergies, asthma, and other respiratory conditions. 

Preventing and Limiting Infestations

While cockroaches are resilient creatures, there are steps homeowners can take to minimize infestations. From sealing entry points to maintaining cleanliness in food preparation areas, proactive measures can deter roaches from invading your home. However, partnering with a professional roach control company like Nozzle Nolen ensures comprehensive protection and effective eradication strategies.
