Do You Have a Cockroach Problem?

Cockroaches are more common in Canada than you might think. Naturally, with more people, there’s bound to be more pests like cockroaches.  A 2016 report by ACORN Toronto found that over 85% of people renting in Toronto have seen a cockroach in their apartment. And once you see one cockroach, best believe there are more you can’t or haven’t noticed, especially since they are nocturnal.

So, it’s not a big deal if you find cockroaches in your apartment. However, how you decide to handle it is very important. The longer you leave a cockroach problem unchecked, the more they increase. And cockroaches reproduce exponentially.  The most effective way to handle a cockroach problem is to contact a reliable cockroach removal service like SIA Wildlife & Pest Control immediately after seeing one.

Like most pests, cockroaches depend on food and water to survive. But sometimes, they can feed on other organic matter, like dead cockroaches. To prevent making your space habitable for cockroaches, keeping food in sealed containers and keeping your environment clean is essential. Tiny actions like taking out the trash at night and cleaning food or drink spills immediately after they occur can make all the difference.

How Can You Tell if Cockroaches Are in Your Space?

Knowing that you have a cockroach problem first requires you to be able to identify cockroaches or at least know what they look like. Since different cockroach species are active in Ontario, it’s possible to misdiagnose a cockroach problem easily.

Cockroaches can be between one and five centimeters long and usually black or reddish-brown. All cockroach species have two antennae and six legs. While most cockroach species have wings, they seldom use them.

These pests can multiply quickly as females produce up to 200 eggs in a few weeks. When these eggs hatch, they are called nymphs. They’ll look similar to an adult cockroach but smaller and without wings. Let’s briefly talk about the different species of cockroaches active in Ontario.

Types of Cockroaches in Ontario

These are the most common cockroach species in Ontario:

German cockroach

German cockroaches are often found in homes, restaurants, hotels and similar businesses. They are a smaller species, between 13 and 16 mm. They are light brown or tan with two dark lines on their backs.

American cockroach

These pests are much larger than the German cockroach and can grow between 2.5 and 5 cm in size. They are more reddish-brown. American cockroaches are also more likely to use their wings to travel.

Oriental cockroach

While not as small as the German species, Oriental cockroaches do not grow as big as their American cousins. Rather, they will be between 1.8 and 2.5 cm. They are darker in colour and appear oily or slimy.

Brown-banded cockroach

The brown-banded cockroach gets its name from the brown band on its wings. Even though they only grow to 14 mm in size, they can be a bigger nuisance than other species of cockroaches. The brown-banded cockroach needs less moisture to survive and can hide in furniture, electronics, pantries, etc.

Some other signs that cockroaches are in your space include:

  • Droppings: Cockroach droppings can look like pepper or ground coffee
  • Skin Casing: Cockroaches shed their skins near where they live
  • Damage: Small bites in food packaging are a sure sign you have pests

 

Are Cockroaches Dangerous?

Cockroaches in Toronto carry bacteria like salmonella, staphylococcus, and streptococcus. If you come into contact with cockroaches or their droppings, you could be at risk for serious sickness. The presence of cockroaches can also cause some allergic reactions in people. For some, it can trigger asthma and breathing problems.

Cockroaches can especially make us feel unwelcome in our own space. They also present a health risk to humans. You could become very sick if you consume food items contaminated by cockroaches.

How to Get Rid of Cockroaches

Keeping a clean space is the best way to ensure you get rid of cockroaches. A clean room often leaves roaches without anything to feed on. However, other things you can do are:

  • Kill and remove with paper towel: This will most likely not kill all of them, but at least you’ll reduce their population this way.
  • Vacuum: vacuum in cabinets and areas they like to hide to potentially remove eggs and make reduce their presence.
  • Use Insect sticky traps: Not only do sticky traps trap and reduce their numbers, but they also allow you to note the worst infestation areas.
  • Keep Your Food in Sealed Containers: This should prevent the roaches from accessing your food.
  • Seal Entry Points: Cockroaches can come in through cracks or holes in your walls. Try to seal these if you can. 
  • Fix Plumbing Problems: Humidity and water are important to these pests. A plumbing problem you have can become a key water source for them. 
  • DIY Methods: There are a few helpful DIY methods you can check out here.
