Cockroach Extermination in New York
There are thousands of different kinds of cockroaches, which are members of the termite family. They are an ancient bug species that has been around for a very long time. They are generally found in human habitats since they thrive on our food and shelter. Cockroaches are notoriously difficult to eradicate. They can withstand extreme cold, heat, and water, and they may go for weeks without feeding. Cockroaches can grow from the size of a fingernail to the length of your thumb, and they can fly. Most species dislike light because it hurts their eyes, and they will be most active at night or in darker sections of your home.

What are the signs of a cockroach infestation?
Seeing a single cockroach does not necessarily mean you have a cockroach infestation. However, cockroaches are nocturnal animals, so seeing one during the daytime may indicate an infestation and should prompt you to investigate further. Cockroaches prefer dark, moist habitats and can be found behind or underneath appliances like refrigerators and stoves, as well as inside floor drains, closets, and cupboards. In the case of an infestation, there will also be visible cockroach feces. Large cockroaches leave droppings that are roughly the size of a grain of rice, similar to mouse droppings, which will be clearly visible anywhere the cockroaches have been spending time.
