Get Rid of Cockroaches with Professional Services You Can Trust!
Dealing with cockroaches in your home is a very unpleasant experience. These pests are dirty, contaminate food and surfaces with feces, and can carry diseases and cause asthma and eczema. To make things worse, they spread easily and can readily slip into your luggage on a business trip, and they reproduce quickly so a single cockroach can become an infestation very quickly.
Cockroaches are resilient and are very difficult to get rid of. Store bought chemicals aren’t strong enough and many people don’t use them properly, wasting time and money and not getting rid of the problem.

Ever hear that cockroaches are one of the oldest species on the planet? Well, it’s true! Studies show that cockroaches have been around for as long as 359 million years, which predates dinosaurs! So when you’re wondering why it’s so hard to get rid of cockroaches, take comfort in knowing that they’ve withstood a lot more than some chemical sprays!
There are more than 4,600 different species of cockroach in the world. In and around the GTA you’re most likely to encounter the German cockroach and the American cockroach, although you might run into the brown-hooded cockroach and the Cuban cockroach. Most cockroaches live in the wild so aren’t a nuisance to humans, with only about 30 species becoming regular pests.
Cockroaches have been able to survive for so long because they’re very resilient and they’ll eat just about anything that is or was alive. That includes any and all human foods, dead insects, paper, wood, feces, decaying plant material … you name it, they eat it!
Indeed they do! As much of a pain as cockroaches are, some people keep them as pets. Not the types that you’ll find scurrying around your kitchen in the middle of the night, though – the Madagascar hissing cockroach and the true death’s head cockroach – which grow to as large as 3″ long – are popular pets. In China, cockroaches are cooked and sold by street vendors. No, thank you!
Yes! Many of the organs that a cockroach needs to live are located throughout it’s body, and not in the form of a brain like in humans. Cockroaches also have a distributed breathing system so they can breathe through parts of their body, not just their mouths. They cannot drink without their heads, and they can go without water for about a week before dying of thirst, so cockroaches can indeed live for about a week after their heads have been cut off!
