Roaches

American Pest Control of Massachusetts

Several species of cockroaches invade homes and other structures. Most are of tropical origin and can’t survive outdoors in New England’s cold winters. All are active primarily at night. They hide in warm, moist places, and feed on human and pet foods and other items.

Cockroaches transmit disease-causing agents, including bacteria that cause food poisoning, by contaminating food, countertops, dishes, and silverware. Roaches also can trigger asthma, as they frequently shed their skin and leave feces throughout the home or structure. When inhaled, these dried substances can cause allergic and/or asthmatic reactions.

Professional treatment is recommended.

American Pest Control of Massachusetts treats each home or structure differently. We conduct an inspection in order to determine the nature and scope of the problem, and then pursue a treatment method—either baited or chemical—suited to the problem.
