It may seem like a never-ending battle sometimes and you just want to give up. Flip on the kitchen light for a snack after dark and immediately you see the scurrying of the most alien looking creatures imaginable; Cockroaches!

Often mistakenly referred to as water bugs, the American Cockroach is dark brown, almost black in color, can live as long as two years, and grows to as much as two inches in length. Periodically, as they grow larger, the cockroach will shed its exoskeleton (turning white temporarily in the process) to make room as it grows larger.

Although infestations of thousands of American Cockroaches are not common, due to their slow rate of maturity, any infestation is a problem as these bugs track through standing water and sewage on their way to your cabinets and food supply plus they often prove resistant to common household extermination methods. Their excrement has a foul odor, can alter the taste of food, and poses a health risk to humans.
