It’s no secret that cockroaches are one of the most feared and hated pests in eastern North Carolina. They’re fast and very hard to kill on the first try, but what’s worse is their ability to carry a multitude of germs and diseases that can be harmful to you and your family. By just scattering across a surface, cockroaches can contaminate food and kitchen utensils. On top of that, cockroaches and the disgusting things they leave behind can trigger a series of harsh allergies and asthma, especially in young children.
The most common of these awful pests in the southeast is the Smoky Brown Cockroach. This particular breed thrives in a warm, wet environment, making coastal North Carolina a perfect home. These are also one of the most resilient types of cockroaches, making them very hard to kill on the first try. Getting rid of one probably won’t be easy, as the smoky brown cockroach has a secret weapon. They have wings that extend beyond their body – that’s right, these creepy crawlers can also fly!
So, what are they doing in your home? Although they are most commonly found outdoors, these pests are attracted to light, and can flatten to fit in tiny cracks under doors and windows. You only need to see one to know it’s time to treat. Just one egg case holds an average of 20 eggs, and they live over a year within the walls of your home.
