If you’ve ever dealt with a cockroach infestation, you might not be surprised to learn that evidence of cockroaches dates back hundreds of millions of years. It can feel nearly impossible to control these incredibly adaptable, resilient pests on your own, and you might not even know you have a cockroach infestation until it gets completely out of hand.
Living with cockroaches in your home or business isn’t just creepy and inconvenient – it can actually be detrimental to your health. Cockroach infestations can trigger skin rashes, severe allergic reactions, chronic digestive problems, and spread diseases. If you see one cockroach, you can be sure there are many more hiding away, and it’s critical that you address the infestation immediately.
