Cockroaches are the most common insect pests infesting homes, food service establishments, and other Lubbock structures. They are repulsive to most people simply by existing. Also, they’re capable of mechanically transmitting disease organisms such as bacteria, which cause food poisoning.
Additionally, cockroaches are a major cause of allergies, second to house dust. Even though they don’t generally bite people, cockroaches shed, and their waste products can get into the air you breathe. As a result, indoor cockroach infestations may cause allergy and asthma symptoms to get worse.
The sight of a cockroach running around in the kitchen cupboard may be familiar to some, but you don’t have to live with that. Since cockroaches eat food items in your home, including crumbs trapped in cracks and spilled drinks, they are a health hazard due to contamination from their saliva and excrement. Meers Pest Solutions, your roach control professionals, employ an integrated pest management (IPM) system to reduce the initial infestation and eliminate conditions for the roaches’ existence. In return, you’ll gain peace of mind knowing your family is protected from roaches.

HOW DOES AN IPM SYSTEM WORK?
An IPM system for cockroach control is a four-step process. The process includes:
We’ll base our roach control action on the type of roach. You’ll have a choice between either a natural or synthetic pesticide. Then, we will use the most effective roach control method.
Our preventive techniques include sealing entry points and identifying and eliminating all conducive conditions.
3. MONITORING AND IDENTIFYING
We’ll monitor the roach population to see how they’re interacting with the environment. Since each type of roach requires a different control method, it’s important we accurately identify the type of roach we’re controlling.
4. ESTABLISHING ROACH THREAT LEVEL
Prior to any roach control action, we’ll consult with you and evaluate the situation to determine the level of roach infestation as well as search for roach breeding grounds.
Cockroaches are tricky creatures and their eggs are naturally protected from many over-the-counter insecticides. Without properly licensed chemicals, special equipment, materials and know-how, cockroach control can be a failure and frustrating.
