All About Cockroaches


Most times, it is not uncommon to put on the light and find this insect scampering around for a place to hide. The braver ones even fly above your head during their nocturnal flight. These crawling menaces are a source of discomfort. Contrary to the opinion that cockroaches only thrive in unkempt surroundings, even the house of an OCD victim cannot escape the infestation.

Professional Roach Control Services In Wilmington, NC

Cockroaches have been known to carry disease, and even worse, they can even cause asthma. Some cockroaches even stink. Yes, they have a very pungent odor that gets worse as the infestation gets prolonged (Yuck!). As if that’s not enough, some cockroaches are even known to bite.

You might consider treating a cockroach infestation on your own, but your plan is bound to fail (sorry). Why? Because you couldn’t possibly know all the cracks and nooks in your house that have become a cockroach abode. Also, cockroaches lay a myriad of eggs that are usually hard to find. This means that even if you think you’ve driven all the roach daddies and mommies out, there’s an army of eggs waiting patiently to hatch and take over. Also, roaches are tough little things. Some are even known to stay for weeks without food.

Therefore, the most effective solution is to enlist the help of a roach control service. Why though, is this roach treatment method deemed most efficient?

  • You can be guaranteed of a thorough job. A roach extermination professional will ensure that every part of the house, even parts you didn’t know were cockroach-infested are completely cleaned out.
