If there was a prize for the most disgusting pest, the cockroach would win.
Cockroaches are typically dark brown in color and as long as 1½-inches in length. They are a common pest in homes from Florida to California, where they delight in feasting on improperly bagged household trash and leftover pet food.
The most common types of cockroaches in the U.S. are the American and German cockroach. The American cockroach is brown to reddish brown with a maximum size of 2.1 inches. The German cockroach is pale brown and about ½ inch in size.
To help keep your home pest free, make sure all garbage bags and trash cans are tightly sealed to eliminate food sources. Pick up or cover uneaten pet food or store until next meal time.
Let HomeTeam perform a thorough inspection of your home and perimeter and identify potential entry points as well as harborage areas. Our technicians will treat live infestations and recommend a pest management plan to keep your home pest-free.
