Most of the cockroaches we treat are of this variety. They like where people live and the food people eat. They reproduce exceedingly well at the temperatures we keep our houses.
Understand that roaches are dangerous to humans and pets. They can carry diseases. They also can carry botulism from one food surface to another. Of greatest concern...their feces and cast-off-skins can cause permanent damage to the lungs of growing children and pets.
CLEANfood preparation areas with soap and water. TIDYthe kitchen by removing excess bags, boxes and food scraps. MOPfloors and vacuum carpets. DO NOT USE ANY PESTICIDES.
