Rats are known to have lots of traits that serve in their favor. They have collapsible skeletons to help them fit through tight spaces, strong teeth to chew through your electrical wiring and the ability to reproduce rapidly to populate your home or office with their rodent offspring as fast as possible. Not to mention their incredible sense of smell to help them sniff out food in your kitchen. Together, all of these traits create a true pest. b2ap3_thumbnail_rat_paper1.png

All roaches are not created equal. Proper identification of a cockroach can reveal a lot about why they are in your home or office and how to get them out. For instance, an American cockroach, also known as a water bug or a palmetto bug, is large in size and can fly, which makes them terrifying to most people. German cockroaches are more common in cases of infestations because of their rapid reproduction and adaptability to survive off of conditions humans provide.

A Pest-Free home starts with a clean foundation. Ants and fruit flies are common in kitchens as they like to feed on pet food or left over food particles you may have missed while cleaning. Cockroaches will eat just about anything from food crumbs to hair, and even dead roaches! Removing these food sources encourages pests to seek shelter elsewhere, where there are better feeding opportunities. Check out these tips from Pest World for a Pest-Proof Kitchen.
