Flick on the kitchen lights and the scuttling legs and antennae of cockroaches on the countertops can live up to your worst nightmares, but these pests don’t just cause the heebie jeebies. Once cockroaches make themselves at home in a house, it can be very difficult to kick them out. They can snack on your food, damage wallpaper, books, and electronics. They can also spread disease pathogens by contaminating food, appliances, and surfaces in the home. Serve these pests an eviction notice and keep them from coming back by choosing a bait, insecticide, trap or barrier approach that works best for you.
