SACRAMENTO (CBS 13) — A flock of cockroaches crawls around Sacramento.
Pest control companies say there is a surge in phone calls about intrusions, but people are wondering. Why is this happening now?
CBS13 has often heard some of the biggest concerns from people in the pocket area who found giant cockroaches in their garages.
And they tend to come out at night.
Matilde Hernandez, a resident of the Pocket area, said, “I hate it, I hate it.”
Hernandez is one of many who saw them slipping around the house and hiding. They have invaded dozens of people, and Hernandez said it was worse than ever. A neighbor in the immediate vicinity is trying to run a hairdresser in the garage.
“I’ll be calm and I’ll be scared of cockroaches running around,” said Jason Venegas. “Maybe I’ve seen about 60, yeah, I’ve seen a lot.”
CBS13 called three Sacramento pest control companies and said there was a surge in calls regarding cockroach invasion. But this is not uncommon during the summer. Cockroaches prefer warm temperatures.
A post from a woman at Next Door in the Pollack Ranch area blames the city of Sacramento. The woman said the pest control company had told her that the city had stopped spraying insects in the nearby sewers.
So we communicated this concern directly to the city authorities, who uncovered it and wrote, “Nothing has changed about the use of pesticides in the city’s sewers.”
Whatever the cause of this problem, many neighbors are rushing to arrange a disinfectant.
“It’s not just in the house, it’s everywhere. Everywhere,” Hernandez said.
According to exterminators, this is a problem that can be avoided with regular spraying and is most effective when all neighbors are spraying.
