Few insects have such a bad reputation as cockroaches, and for good reason. Cockroaches are one of the most frequently found pests in homes and can be embarrassing and repulsive. These flat brown insects have long antennae and can run quickly, which easily causes a frightening experience.


Cockroaches are attracted to food and areas where food can often be found, and can thus contaminate food, kitchen items, and other household goods, resulting in food poisoning and other serious illnesses such as salmonella or E. coli. Many individuals are also allergic to cockroaches, causing coughing, sneezing, congestion, eye irritation, and severe asthma.


Cockroaches are easy to attract but may be extremely difficult to remove from your home or business location. They frequently make their way into a home, apartment, or office by riding in boxes or on furniture, walking through open doors or windows, or crawling through drains, pipes, or walls. They most frequently remain hidden and out of sight during the day with increased activity at night.

Cockroach infestations can grow quickly. Once a cockroach enters a new area, it can release a pheromone that will draw more cockroaches to the location. It can then go on to produce between 120 and 320 eggs throughout its lifetime.

It can be difficult to eliminate a cockroach infestation due to their nocturnal nature, adeptness at hiding in hard-to-find crevices, and resistance to insecticides. Because of these factors and more, roaches are notoriously difficult to kill, and it’s important to seek professional help at the first sign of an infestation.
