Wood roach infestations in New York are back, thanks to a new and effective program by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the National Park Service.
The agency says the program is aimed at removing wood roachers from woodworking sites and helping keep them from entering into homes.
Wood roaches can be dangerous to people who have pets, and the birds are often attracted to areas where food is scarce.
Wood cockroaches have been a problem in New Yorkers’ homes since the early 1990s.
A report from the U,D.F.A. said there were more than 2,500 reports of wood cockroach sightings in New Jersey in the early 2000s.
The U.D.P.S., in conjunction with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, is using a variety of methods to eliminate the pests.
The program includes a series of tests, including the swab test, and it’s been successful at removing roaches from wood and other hard surfaces, including wood cabinets.
The New York City Department of Transportation and the New Yorker State Parks and Recreation Department are also using the swabs to remove roaches.
Officials with the U.,D.S.’s New York office, which is responsible for overseeing the program, said the swaths of wood roving around the state are not as big as in the past, but they’re not as effective.
The U. D.
S said the number of roaches removed from New York is not nearly as big, but it’s still higher than the number that have been removed from other states.
