Your Satisfaction Is Our Top Priority
One of the most common household pests that Floridians deal with is cockroaches – and it just so happens that these critters are some of the hardest to eliminate! If you have spotted one cockroach, you can bet that there are hundreds more hiding in your home. Due to the emission of pheromones in their feces, roaches are often drawn to congregate in the same area. Thus, one roach likely means you have a much larger infestation.

What’s So Bad About Roaches?
Most people are creeped out just by the appearance of cockroaches. But did you know that they present more danger than just having an unsightly physical appearance? While they do not cause physical damage to the structure of your home, they can actually pose a threat to the health of you and your loved ones. These pests are known to carry diseases like Salmonella. Not only can their bodies and waste products contaminate your food, but their feces can trigger asthma attacks. They can also cause a disgusting odor in the areas they have infested.
How to Prevent a Cockroach Infestation
One of the most common household pests that Floridians deal with is cockroaches - and it just so happens that these critters are some of the hardest to eliminate!

Some preventative measures you can take are:
- Regular vacuuming
- Maintaining a clean kitchen
- Storing food in sealed containers
- Using trash cans with tight-fitting lids
- Fixing water leaks or dripping faucets
- Sealing-off entry points with caulking or copper mesh
- Sealing gaps in doors, windows, baseboards, and in between cabinets
German cockroaches are the most prevalent species of roaches in the U.S. They are smaller than American cockroaches, being 1/2 inches to 5/8 inches in size, which allows them to live in the smallest cracks and crevices. They prefer to live in warm, dark areas and are rarely found outside. This species searches for food at night, preferring fatty foods, meats, sugars, and starches. They can also reproduce rapidly, which means you can have a rather large infestation in no time.
