We can help you avoid and exterminate cockroaches in your home, apartment, or business.
Cockroaches primarily come out for water, not food.
They can live a month without food, but only a week without water.
They thrive in all conditions, from deserts to the arctic.
Cockroaches are white for a short while immediately after shedding.
They spend over 75% of their time resting.
Roaches can just as readily be found in clean locations. It is a common misconception that a roach infestation only occurs in a dirty location, though it will be more likely if there is a greater abundance of food.
A clean kitchen is essential. Roaches will seek out humid locations with water or excessive moisture for egg laying. The kitchen sink should never have standing water with dishes.
Food debris is the main goal of a roach. They can feed on grease left on stoves or particles of food that fall behind appliances or furniture.
