In high density population areas, such as Brampton and Mississauga and they are found more often and more frequently in higher numbers. Once they invade your home, cockroaches become entrenched and are extremely difficult to eradicate from a property, especially multi-unit dwellings such as apartments and condominiums.

Atypically, during this global climate change, warmer winters, bring temperature swings where one day it can be minus 8 degrees and the couple of days later it can be + 8 degrees. All that being said, those temperature variations lead to more dramatic snow events with higher accumulations in the Great Lakes region. It is becoming more evident that those temperature swings perfectly suited for Cockroach colonies to breed and grow.

These temperature spikes in either direction along with precipitation events, encourages cockroaches to seek and find new harbourage sites. The new and ever changing environment makes it easier for crawling insects such as cockroaches, to move inside our homes and our businesses.

Why Pest / Cockroach Control is so important in Brampton and across the GTA

When looking at property damage caused by cockroaches, there are several different aspects that must be considered.

First of all, the all infestations are not the same and are case specific. They vary from home to home, apartment to condo and business to business and they also vary according to the specific species of cockroach. When discussing cockroach control Brampton, the most common species include German Cockroaches, Oriental Cockroaches and American Cockroaches. They all infest food, dry goods such as clothing and even electronics. Unfortunately, cockroaches often leave stains in clothing which may be difficult to remove, and they can also damage stitching in some varieties of fabrics.

Cockroaches do not give birth to live roaches. They lay egg sacks and depending on the species of cockroach the egg sack can house as many as 100 cockroaches. Unfortunately, there is no product know to man that can penetrate a cockroach egg sack and as such we must treat the adult cockroaches first and come back 2 weeks after the Initial service to conduct a second treatment to eliminate the cockroaches that hatched from their egg sacks.

When it comes to electronics and because of the heat that electronics emit, cockroaches may infest computer servers, circuit boxes, televisions, stereo equipment, which allows them to reproduce at a very high rate.

Furthermore, cockroaches can irritate household pets, and can cause a health hazard to very young children, and in some rare cases some larger cockroach species can sometimes bite with enough force to puncture skin. Perhaps one of the most common damages caused by cockroaches in Brampton and across the GTA is to food items, which may be spoiled due to cockroach egg sacks or droppings.

In fact, in the best case scenario, the food products affected must be thrown out after traces of cockroaches are detected. If the cockroach presence in the food items is not detected, and the food is subsequently consumed, negative health impacts may be observed. Asthma, dysentery, and salmonella are all diseases which may be transmitted to humans by cockroaches, especially through contamination of food sources.
