Cockroaches are considered to be some of the most primitive winged insects. There are over 5,000 species worldwide and Northern Virginia is home to several of them. It is interesting to note that a cockroach can live up to a week without its head. If a headless cockroach does die it is because the lack of a mouth makes it impossible to drink water.

Where do Roaches Hide?

Cockroaches are attracted to warm, moist environments and they easily adapt to their environment. The cockroach prefers food sources such as sweets, starches and meat products, but they will eat almost anything organic in nature including cheese, dried skin flakes, glue and even beer. To avoid an infestation keep food in tightly sealed containers and do not allow dirty dishes to pile up in the sink overnight. It is also important to take out garbage on a regular basis and be certain your outside container is secure. If you do notice a cockroach, the best method of eliminating them from your home is calling a professional. Better Termite offers a variety of methods to help get rid of cockroaches.

I have been using... better termites and pest control since 1995 when I was recommended to them by the builder that built my home back then. Since then I moved and I went into a townhouse development where you have neighbors and those neighbors affect how you care for your property. Better termites and pest control has been providing me yearly termite inspections, I do exterior treatments for all sorts of different pests six times a year and if I ever have a problem, which I have not, they will come out and identify the problem and tend to it. George the owner is responsive, and caring and I wouldn't go anywhere else. This is an industry where you really have to know what is being provided, the chemicals that are being used, and that services are being done, especially if you're not home for every visit. Better termites and pest control is also quite fair in their pricing and it's a small family-run business. I recommend them highly.read more
