Two Roaches Seeking a Warm Home

Two Roaches Seeking a Warm Home

There are many pests that search for warm shelter come the fall season of each year. Two of the more common are the Pennsylvania wood roach and the Smokeybrown roach.

Pennsylvania wood roachThe Pennsylvania wood roach is an outdoor pest which rarely survive indoors, and are usually found under tree bark and in wood piles. But they are attracted to light, and in the fall may seek temporary shelter in your home. They are harmless, but their erratic flights across your living room ceiling can be distracting.

The Smokeybrown roach prefers dark, moist areas with little airflow.

The best way to stop Pennsylvania wood roaches from entering your home is to seal cracks and crevices that may provide their entrance, and to limit your outdoor light usage. Sealing cracks and crevices can also help keep out the smokeybrowns as well, but there are also several baits that can be very effective in getting rid of them.

If these pest become a constant nuisance, you may want to consider our quarterly pest control program that not only keeps out roaches, but also spiders, ants, mice, etc…

Bee Good!
