  • What are cockroaches?

    Cockroaches are resilient pests with the ability to survive for a month without food, two weeks without water, and a week without a head. Species in our area include:

    • Smokey brown cockroaches
    • American cockroaches
    • German cockroaches
    • Wood cockroaches
    • Oriental cockroaches
    • Brown-banded cockroaches

    It's essential to correctly identify the species you are dealing with for effective removal, so you should always call experts if you suspect a cockroach problem.

  • Are cockroaches dangerous?
    Yes, cockroaches are dangerous because of the diseases and bacteria they can transmit. These diseases can include listeriosis, salmonellosis, giardia, leprosy, cholera, dysentery, gastroenteritis, and typhoid fever. Bacteria they can spread include E. coli, streptococcus, and staphylococcus.
  • Why do I have a cockroach problem?

    Cockroaches take advantage of residential properties to access food, moisture, and conducive conditions. This pest isn't picky with what they eat, so you could be attracting them with crumbs, garbage, pet waste, food grease, and much more!

    They also like cool, dark, and damp places to live, so it can be the perfect space to thrive in a home that provides these conditions, especially if they are trying to escape dry or unfavorable weather.

  • Where will I find cockroaches?
    If cockroaches find their way into your home, they will gravitate toward bathrooms, kitchens, basements, laundry rooms, and garages because these areas provide the conditions they look for. But these critters are nocturnal, so there is a good chance you won't see them but will notice signs like droppings and damage to food packaging.
