Cockroach Infestation

Professional Pest Control Services Versus Common DIY Methods

Experiencing a cockroach infestation is anyone’s worst nightmare! Those creepy, offensive, horrible insects will get anyone up in arms! These ugly buggers are the cause of different diseases, especially asthma. They also exude a disgusting smelling odor as they move all over to scavenge on leftover food etc.

The size and colour of roaches can be different. This will depend on which species we are dealing with. In Canada, most common species are American and German Cockroaches. The German cockroach is reddish brown in colour, has wings, but flies very rarely, 2 long antennas and 3 pairs of legs. American Cockroaches are the largest of almost all species. They can grow to be four to seven centimeter long! They are the same colour as the German ones and behind their heads are some yellow margins.

An ugly painted picture, befitting the roaches, indeed.
