It’s no secret that cockroaches are some of the most formidable pests in Georgia. From American roaches and brown-banded roaches to Oriental roaches and German roaches, these pests are nearly unstoppable once they get into a home. 

Don’t believe us? Roaches are known to survive up to a week without their heads, go over a month without eating, and grow new cuticles to avoid pesticide damage.

In this blog post, we’re going to explore some dangers of the common roach, as well as some actionable ways to prevent and manage them all year long. 

The Pest Pathogens Of Georgia Cockroaches

Roaches aren’t just creepy and unhygienic. According to scientists, these pests may be some of the most dangerous insects in America!

By hanging out in dumpsters, sewers, and back alleyways, cockroaches spread a host of diseases from one place to the next. Some of the most common roach pathogens in the Georgia area include: 

  • Cholera 
  • Campylobacteriosis 
  • Leprosy 
  • Salmonellosis 
  • Gastroenteritis 
  • Listeriosis 
  • Giardia 
  • Dysentery 

The best and most effective method of steering clear of roach diseases is fast, accurate prevention all year long. 

Easy Cockroach Prevention In Georgia

It’s not easy to keep pests away without professional help. Fortunately, there are some professional steps you can take to reduce the pressure on yourself and your home:

  • Find, evaluate, and seal the potential entry points around your building. Windows and doors have the most significant number of weak spots, while chimneys and foundations have a higher tendency to crack. 
  • It’s crucial to manage trash both inside and outside the home. Store all garbage in airtight bins lined with a plastic bag. Remove these bags from the house every seven days or more if the contents or scents are strong enough. 
  • Store all your food in glass or plastic containers, keeping them off the counter and into a cool, dry place. 
  • Do what you can to declutter the home regularly. Sell or donate items you no longer need. Throw away any objects that are no longer usable. 
  • Clear up yard debris frequently, paying close attention to leaf litter, weed piles, or disorganized firewood. 
  • Do what you can to address serious moisture issues in the home with desiccant bags or dehumidifiers. 

If cockroaches have already found their way to your Georgia home, prevention steps will no longer be enough to handle the situation. In this case, it would be wise to contact a roach prevention specialist at High Priority Pest Services.
