Don’t Share Your Donuts with Roaches

Jelly Donut BiteIt was a typical quiet Saturday morning; sleeping in and staying in my pajamas until about noon. I was enjoying the morning sports page as I finished my breakfast of coffee, and my favorite… A cream filled donut.

Only this Sunday was a little different. I reach down for my donut, only to find that it had disappeared.

Who stole my donut!?!

My first suspect was my wife, since she had been on a diet for the last few weeks, and nobody has that much will-power to turn down such a delectable pastry. After asking her, she denied indulging.

It’s about this time I remembered I had the nanny camera hidden in the kitchen and I could have video proof of who the donut thief was.

Here’s the footage:

Just then I remembered my nanny cam! I took a peek at the footage and quickly found out who the culprit was. Witness for yourself:

It was a roach!

I’m sick and tired of these dang roaches! It’s bad enough that every time I turn on the lights in the kitchen, I see a few of these guys scurry off into the deepest corners of my kitchen. Now these buggers are stealing my food, and not the brussels sprouts or lima beans. There stealing my donuts!

I’ve had enough! I’m calling a cockroach exterminator, and not just any exterminator; I want the best Atlanta has to offer. I want an exterminator who offers a guarantee when it comes to keeping my home and my kitchen free from these filthy pests. I want the roaches in my home not only gone, I don’t want any of their family returning to steal my pop-tarts, my cheese danishes, or my blueberry muffins.

I want the best Atlanta exterminator!

Atlanta’s Role in Cockroach Control

The City of Atlanta, GA annually paints the inside of some 10,000 plus manholes with a latex based insecticide, all with the intent of eliminating disease carrying cockroaches. The paint is guaranteed to control roaches for two years and is more cost effective than the old method of dusting manholes with a non-toxic Boron-based powder. The new latex paint allows the City of Atlanta to do the painting once every two years.

By drastically reducing the cockroach population in the sanitary sewer system, Atlanta’s cockroach control problem has had an impact on the roaches that live and breed on private property as well.

However, the City of Atlanta is only responsible for the public sewers. It’s up to individuals to treat their own houses, businesses, storage sheds, mailboxes, and other areas that cockroaches like to hide.

Atlanta Citizen’s Role in Cockroach Control

  • Don’t leave food uncovered. This includes pet food—roaches love Fido’s food too.
  • Pick up clutter—don’t give the pests a place to run for cover.
  • Spread bay leaves in your kitchen cabinets. Bay leaves will drive them out.
  • Keep drains covered—roaches love to use drains as watering holes.
  • Keep windows and doors closed.
  • Check boxes for bugs before bringing them in from storage.
  • Treat cracks and crevices with boric acid on a regular basis
  • Call a pest control professional
