Cockroach infestation is a very common problem in NYC’s public housing areas. More than 90% of residents in city-owned housing projects in Brooklyn and East Harlem have seen cockroaches in their apartments. The traditional method of using pesticides to get rid of cockroaches will result in increased exposure to toxic chemicals, which can be detrimental to health. A healthier solution will be to take management measures to keep cockroaches out of apartments for an extended period of time.
Integrated pest management is not only a healthier way to get rid of cockroaches; it is also more effective and affordable. Residents only need to hire pest management professionals once every six months, and these professionals will clean the apartments, seal cracks, and set up bait traps to control cockroach infestation. According to studies, the population of cockroaches in apartments that received a single visit from integrated pest management professionals was reduced by 75% after just three months.
