Pest Control – Different Pests You Should Be Aware Of

What do Miss Moffett, Joe's Apartment and the Pied Piper all have in common? The need of a good pest control service. Miss Moffett was plagued by spiders, Joe had a very serious cockroach problem and the Pied Piper was followed everywhere he went by hoards of rats.

Your problem may not be quite up to the standards of the Brother's Grimm or Hollywood but when you have pests you need help fast, especially for cockroaches.

In North America there are six different varieties of cockroaches with the German cockroach being the most common. The German cockroach is seen most often because it likes hot humid areas with water and food close to hand. That means not only does he like it in places like Florida and New Orleans but the best place to live is inside your house.

Unfortunately if you have seen a German cockroach skitter across the floor or counter in the middle of the night you need to control the pests because a single female can lay 30,000 eggs a year. So if you have seen one call a pest control company to deal with them because a German cockroach, believe it or not can actually live inside the gas tank of a car.

A German cockroach is a light brown color, are about inch inch long, has two stripes on their back and has wings as adults. The young or juvenile version is a little smaller and often does not have wings.

Cockroaches are night owls so if you see one out and about during the day there may be massive numbers hanging in the walls a specialist knows they like to hide in tiny cracks and crevices and eat almost anything.

Do you have asthma? Better call a pest control agent if you see these nasty bugs then. The eggs, urine, saliva and feces of cockroaches have been proven to enhance the symptoms of asthma as well as allergies.

Pests in the home can be annoying as well as dangerous. There is an old joke that says cockroaches will be the only survivors of a nuclear war because they are so hard to get rid of. If you see one you need to consult with an expert and get rid of them before they take over or you may find yourself living in Joe's Apartment which was wall to wall deep with them.
