What you need to know about Cockroaches

While Halloween can get scary, you might want to be warier about what can sneak up on you in your own home on any regular old day or night. One way to mitigate your risk is to know what you’re up against.
There are about 4,600 species of cockroaches today in the world. They still look the same as they did 320 million years, black or brown flat oval bodies with a head that is bent downward. The cockroaches you are most likely to see here in the United States are the American cockroach, which is reddish-brown and can grow up to 2 inches, and the German cockroach, which is light brown with 2 black strips down the prothoracic region. It is small, growing up to .5 inches.
Male cockroaches have two sets of wings, while females in some species are wingless. The females produce eggs in egg cases. 
Cockroaches like to live in warm, humid, damp environments and prefer the dark. They can damage your property and they carry diseases. Now that is spooky! A cockroach will eat food, paper, clothing, books, and even other insects, especially bedbugs. 
To keep cockroaches from invading your home, keep your home clean. Make sure all food is stored in containers. Keep cupboards and countertops clean. Check for holes or cracks in your foundation and make sure they are sealed or fixed. If you have any leaky water pipes, fix them. Have a professional such as TLC Bug Bombers come in to eradicate your home of these pests. Ask us about our Halloween special!
