Roach Removal 101: What It Takes To Eliminate An Infestation In Your Plymouth Home


Cockroaches are some of the most feared types of home-invading pests. These bugs cannot bite or sting and are not venomous. However, they can instill instant fear in homeowners because of the various dangerous diseases they are capable of spreading to you and your family. 

At Combat Pest Control, our cockroach exterminators have spent many years researching the best, most effective cockroach elimination strategies. If you are looking for a fast and easy way to keep them out of your Plymouth home, we know the perfect solution that will work for all homeowners. 

Physical Characteristics Of Roaches: How To Identify Them

You can find a few different types of cockroaches in this area. And while the various species can come in different sizes and colors, they all have the same basic shape and appearance. 

Roaches typically have flat, oval-shaped bodies. They can measure between 1/2 to 2 inches long. Their bodies are usually dark-colored but can be tan or light brown as well. These small insects have six legs with tiny spines, allowing the bugs to easily climb vertical and inverted surfaces. Some types of cockroaches have wings and will fly for short distances. However, because they can run incredibly fast, even the winged cockroaches usually choose to run. 

The size and shape of a roach's body allow it to hide in a variety of tight spaces. If you see a roach in your home, you should have an experienced cockroach exterminator inspect your home to ensure that no other roaches are hiding in the darkest crevices of your home. 

Health Risks And Property Damage: The Hazards Of Roaches In The House

Roaches are arguably one of the most disgusting home-invading pests in Plymouth. These little bugs spend much of their time crawling through drains, sewers, garbage, and other areas covered in bacteria and harmful pathogens. The roaches can carry these pathogens around on their bodies and contaminate your food or home just by walking around. They are also known to spread these dangerous diseases, like salmonellosis and E. coli infections, by leaving their urine and feces around your home as well. 

A local cockroach control specialist will know what signs to look for to determine if your home has been contaminated by these filthy bugs.
