If you’ve ever dealt with a cockroach infestation before, it might not surprise you to find out that evidence of cockroaches has been found in fossils that date back hundreds of millions of years. Trying to get rid of cockroaches without the requisite experience and expertise can be nearly impossible, so it’s no surprise that these pests have survived for so long.
Cockroaches vary somewhat in color and size, but in the Williamsburg, Virginia area, most of the roaches you’ll see will be about an inch or two long and brown or brownish red. Because they’re so good at hiding and often only come out at night, some people will live with a cockroach infestation for months before discovering them. Living among cockroaches isn’t just creepy and inconvenient. Cockroach infestations can trigger skin rashes, allergic reactions, digestive problems, and spread diseases by contaminating food.
