It might surprise you to learn that as a species, cockroaches have been around for hundreds of millions of years. They are one of the most adaptable insects in the world, which makes them an extremely tricky pest to control without the help of a professional.
While cockroaches can vary somewhat in size and color, the most common cockroaches in the Hoover, Alabama, area will be about two inches long and brown or reddish brown in color. When your home or business is infested with cockroaches, it’s more than just a creepy inconvenience. Cockroaches can actually trigger allergic reactions, spread diseases, cause digestive problems, and trigger skin rashes.
