Learn more about some common household pests from our highly educated staff.
Cockroaches are a common problem for homes and businesses across the country. These pests are tough to get rid of and cause a laundry list of problems for people. They carry dangerous diseases, can trigger allergic reactions, and even agitate those with asthma. Cockroaches invade homes and offices in search of food, water, and shelter. If you see a single cockroach scuttling about, chances are, many more are living in the hidden spaces of your home. These notorious pests thrive in the dark and damp spaces that exist in your building, and they reproduce at an alarmingly fast rate.

These pests build their nests in walls and floors and easily damage the structural integrity of any building. Cockroaches are resilient, capable of enduring extreme cold, heat, flooding, and going weeks without food. They’re an ancient insect of the termite family ranging from the size of a fingernail to the size of your thumb and can fly. These insects do not like light, so they’re most active at night when it’s dark and all is quiet. Not only do they damage homes and carry disease, but they also have a bad odor and leave droppings that will contaminate and stain your living space.

These pests cause a hoard of problems for businesses and homeowners alike. At-home methods of treatment are often ineffectual and time-consuming.
