You saw a roach.
How fast do you need to do something about it? The answer is simple: immediately! Cockroaches reproduce very quickly, and if you are seeing roaches, that almost definitely means there are more in your home than you can even imagine. As the saying goes, “Where there’s one, there’s many.”
Though roaches don’t necessarily cause damage to your home, what they bring with them into your home is cause for much concern. Roaches bring disease and allergens that can affect you and your whole family.
A pest is defined as a destructive bug or animal; a nuisance.
Have you heard all the myths about roaches?
Like the one about them being the last creature living on the planet should everything else be wiped out by a nuclear bomb? Or the myth that they only live in the dark, like creepy crawly vampires? Or that female cockroaches can reproduce without needing a male around? While these things are not necessarily true, one thing is for sure. Cockroaches are just plain gross.
Cockroaches are just plain gross.
And they’re called pests for a reason- they are incredibly difficult to get rid of! Maybe you’ve researched all the different home remedies for getting rid of them and decided to take on the cockroach extermination yourself. Maybe you’ve crawled around on all fours trying to stuff every possible crack they could enter in through. Maybe you’ve tried concocting all sorts of mixtures of borax or sugar or vinegar, but to no avail. In fact, maybe it seems the cockroaches like these mixtures, have invited their friends, brought their suitcases and moved in to stay!
