What’s creepier than seeing a cockroach in the bathroom? The bathroom is one of the most intimate parts of the home; it’s where you should feel safe. Unfortunately, cockroaches are attracted to bathrooms almost just as much as they are to kitchens. Seeing them in the bathroom could also indicate a much larger problem. If you’re seeing cockroaches in the bathroom and want them gone for good, contact Cockroach Control Toronto today. 

The species of cockroach that you are most likely to find in the bathroom is the German cockroach. This species prefers areas of the house that are warm and humid, namely the kitchen or bathroom. Moreover, these rooms provide German cockroaches with plenty of places to hide and easy access to food. Like most other species, German cockroaches will eat practically anything. As nocturnal creatures, cockroaches like to hide in the dark during the day and come out at night to eat whatever they find. Physically, the German cockroach is characterized by its shiny brown colour, the two horizontal black stripes on its back, and its flightless wings. 

Cockroaches almost always start from the kitchen and move outward as their colonies grow larger. Seeing cockroaches anywhere other than the kitchen is a bad sign. This could mean that the colony has already gotten quite big. Cockroaches typically move from one home or room to the next by crawling through the walls. They may also migrate through the plumbing or hitch a ride on used furniture, clothing, or boxes. If you live in a multi-residential building, the cockroaches you are seeing in the bathroom may have come from your neighbour’s unit. It’s important that you or your landlord seek professional help immediately before the infestation gets worse and spreads any further.  

The eradication of cockroaches is a multi-step process. Before the technician arrives, you must first remove everything from the kitchen and bathroom cabinets. This will make the application of pesticides much easier and more effective. Our team at The Exterminators Inc. uses an ultra-light volume mist that sprays a customizable insecticide in all those hard-to-reach areas like behind the cabinets in the kitchen or bathroom. Our experts then use residual pesticides that stop the pests from coming back. In some cases, a technician may also put bait inside the cabinets. After this whole process, it is safe to put everything back into place. If after 30 days you continue to see cockroaches, you should reach out to the pest removal company again so they can come back and repeat the process. 

The crew members of Pest Control Toronto – The Exterminators Inc are experienced in cockroach removal. Whether they are in kitchen or bathroom or anywhere in the house, you can trust our services with our 3 and 6-month warranties. We use the best equipment and pesticides to keep those pests gone for good. If you suspect a cockroach infestation in your home, give us a call.
