Frequently Asked Questions About Cockroaches

What are cockroaches?

Cockroaches are well-known unsanitary insects that regularly find their way into homes and businesses in search of food. They have flat, oval-shaped bodies, a dark color that ranges from light brown to reddish-brown and black, and great skill at moving through small spaces or slipping into difficult-to-reach hiding spots.

Cockroaches are most often seen at night scavenging for food in areas like kitchens, bathrooms, and basements, as all of these areas provide a warm, humid environment within easy distance to food. The main types of cockroaches that you need to keep an eye out for around your property include American, German, and oriental cockroaches.

Are cockroaches dangerous?

A cockroach infestation may not seem like a dangerous problem at first, but these pests bring serious issues with them once they invade your property. As cockroaches scavenge for food, they spread illnesses like dysentery, salmonella, gastroenteritis, and bacteria such as E. coli. The more widespread a cockroach problem you have, the higher your chances of picking up a serious illness.

Additionally, cockroaches easily trigger allergy and asthma problems via the saliva, droppings, shed skins, and egg cases they leave around your property. A large cockroach invasion can lead to breathing problems or other allergic reactions in no time, making it incredibly important to get rid of cockroaches as fast as possible.

Why do I have a cockroach problem?

Cockroaches are one of the biggest scavenging insects out there, and they gravitate to human structures due to the food items that are abundant there. If you are dealing with a cockroach problem, it's likely because you've got food and moisture that provide sustenance for these pests, plus cracks around your property that allow cockroaches inside.

What's also problematic is that cockroaches can feed on non-food items like toothpaste, hair, and soap. Once they get into your house, they can be incredibly difficult to remove without professional assistance.

Where will I find cockroaches?

Indoors, you will typically find cockroaches hiding around kitchens, basements, and bathrooms, where they have access to warm, humid areas, lots of moisture, and easy access to food. Outdoors, you'll likely find cockroaches gathered near piles of debris or waste disposal areas, such as trash cans and compost piles.

    "Aries knows pest control."
    I had a serious problem a few years back. Kevin came out, set traps, returned and disposed of the critters because I was terrified, put out bait traps and sealed entrances, and I ain't seen nothing since, thank God! Thorough and responsive.

    "I wholeheartedly recommend their company."
    Got home after a long absence and found a wasps nest in our patio. They came out the same day and took care of them and found an even bigger nest and removed it as well.
