There are a lot of pests you’ve probably never heard of, such as the bot fly, fungus gnat and goldsmith beetle. However, the cockroach is not likely one of them. Nearly everyone is familiar with cockroaches, from the children at Westside Elementary School to the seniors at The Cottages Assisted Living.
Cockroaches may be the most difficult pest to exterminate on your own. They can eat nearly anything, including fingernails. They can also survive in temperatures as low as -188 degrees by producing an antifreeze from glycerol. They are social and intelligent. They also can become immune to some pest control products.
Cockroaches use community decision making. They make food source decisions based on how dark it is and how many cockroaches are there. This means that if you see a cockroach during the day, you likely have a major problem already. You should definitely call a Payette cockroach control company immediately if you’ve spotted even one cockroach.
