Cockroach Control and Removal in North Carolina

It’s important to keep a clean space at home and in the office at all times. However, a common threat to cleanliness across North Carolina is cockroaches. Eager to get into your residential and commercial space for food and shelter, there are few sights more chilling than seeing a cockroach in plain view. 

Although the sheer sight of them is enough to raise hairs, they also pose a great health and safety risk with their ability to carry and transmit diseases, including salmonella. This is why it’s crucial that if you see a cockroach in your home, you take immediate action to remove them. When you need effective cockroach control and removal services for your North Carolina home or business, turn to Clegg’s Pest Control.

 

Identifying a Cockroach

Cockroaches are oval-shaped and flat-bodied insects with two antennae in the front. Depending on the species, they may also have wings. Some cockroaches can reach up to two inches in length but are usually between one and 1 1/2 inches long.

However, each species of cockroach has differences and distinctions that make them unique. In the United States alone, there are about 70 different species of cockroaches. Among the common cockroach species found in North Carolina include American cockroaches, brown-banded cockroaches, and German cockroaches. 

 

Signs of a Cockroach Infestation

Some additional yet common signs of a cockroach infestation include the presence of droppings, shed skins, egg capsules, and a foul odor. Although they tend to live in dark and moist places, they can be found in the open under the right circumstances.

The risk of cockroaches goes beyond them being a disgusting sight to see. They can trigger asthma attacks and can carry a variety of different diseases, including: 

  • Salmonella
  • E. coli
  • Typhoid fever
  • Dysentery
  • Leprosy
  • Plague
  • Listeria

With their ability to not only invade your home at an alarming rate but pose a serious health risk along the way, it’s best to get rid of them as soon and effectively as you can.
