Cockroach Exterminator Services Near Wilmington, NC


If you were asked the oft-asked question of what superpower would you want to have if you were a superhero, you might want to consider having that of a cockroach.  Why? Cockroaches are arguably the most resilient creatures on this planet. They do not get extinct. Despite all the hatred against them and humans wanting to kill them off, they still thrive as if nothing is happening.  Cut their head off, and they would still live. Their immune system is very strong, they probably eat harmful microbes and fungi for breakfast! So you see, they have incredible powers.

They Are Disgusting

Their diet is very diverse.  They can eat anything: fresh food, rotting food, paper, cardboard, blood, excrement, dead animals and insects, and even their own kind.  You see, they would not run out of food. They will live wherever they go. Unsanitary conditions? They love it. Simply put, they are disgusting! 

But all superheroes have weaknesses.  For cockroaches, they can not defeat Go-Forth Home Services Company.

Of all the species of cockroaches, these are the four most common: American, German, Brown Banded, and oriental.

American Cockroach

This is native to Africa and the Middle East, not in America.  This is the most common species found inside houses and also the largest among all common cockroaches.  They are oval in shape and are two inches long. Adult female cockroaches can hatch as many as 150 offsprings per year.  They live in dark, wet places like sewers and pipes in homes and commercial buildings.

German Cockroach

The German cockroach is a small species, about 1.1 to 1.5 inches long.  These are the types usually found in restaurants and hotels as they prefer sweet, fatty, and starchy foods.  This species is said to be the most troublesome, so immediate help is needed once you spot one of these in your home.

Oriental Cockroaches

Oriental cockroaches are larger and darker compared to other cockroach species.  They dwell in dirty, cooler places and create a strong smell. They eat garbage and organic material.  

Cockroaches usually can be found in cracks on the wall, under the furniture, kitchen cupboards, below sinks, in drains and grease traps, and anywhere that is hidden.
