If you’ve ever dealt with a cockroach infestation, then you already know how incredibly resilient and persistent these pests can be. Cockroaches have been around since prehistoric times, and scientists have found them in fossils that are hundreds of millions of years old. They’ve survived so much as a species, so it’s no wonder they’re a particularly hard pest to control without some professional help.
Cockroaches can vary somewhat in size and color, but the most common cockroaches will be about two inches long and brown or reddish brown in color. They’re more than just a nuisance. Cockroaches can transfer E. Coli and salmonella to your food, which then cause serious illnesses. They have also been shown to cause severe allergic reactions, skin rashes, and digestive problems. And, since they’re so good at hiding, you might not even realize your home has a cockroach problem until you notice signs of cockroaches or you happen to turn on a light one night only to see cockroaches quickly scattering away.
