There are more than 4000 species of cockroaches all over the world, however, only a few of them cause problems for home and business owners. When living outdoors and far away from people, cockroaches are beneficial insects and help to interrupt down decaying matter. But, when roaches live near people, or inside our homes and businesses, they become hazardous instead of helpful. Cockroaches have a flattened, oval-shaped body and 6 legs covered in spines. Their long antennae are usually an equivalent length or longer than their bodies. whether or not they have fully developed wings or not depends on their exact species. In Phoenix, a number of the foremost common species of cockroaches found invading our homes and properties are listed below:
American cockroach adults grow to between ¼ and a couple of ⅛ inches long. The bodies have a reddish-brown color along with a yellowish pattern on the backs which looks like an 8. They're the most important household-invading cockroach within us.
German cockroaches are small, fast-moving roaches. they need alight-weight brown to the tan-colored body with two horizontal black stripes behind their heads. These roaches cannot fly, but run quickly and scatter out of the way when disturbed.
Oriental cockroaches are usually found in and around drains and are often mentioned as “water bugs.” Oriental cockroaches have smooth, dark brown or black bodies, and therefore the males have wings that are developed than the females but none of them are capable of flight.
Yes, when cockroaches invade homes and businesses, they're considered dangerous for a good sort of reason. Before finding their way onto our property, those roaches were traveling through or living in unsanitary conditions like trash piles, sewers,areas around drains, and on excrement or carrion. due to this, cockroaches carry an out sized number of parasites, human pathogens, and bacteria on their bodies. As these roaches forage for food and travel throughout your home or business, they contaminate food, dishes, and surfaces with pathogens that will cause illnesses like salmonella, diarrhea, and dysentery. Listed below are more reasons why these insects are a threat to possess living in your Phoenix home or business:
Cockroaches regularly shed their skins as they grow and develop. These shed skins alongside their excrement can trigger allergies and asthma attacks in some people, especially in young children, the elderly, and people with compromised immune systems.
Many cockroach species produce an unpleasant musty odor.
Roaches might damage all the personal items while chewing through the fabrics and they can even stain them with their feces.
Anywhere that food is ready or stored creates a perfect environment for cockroaches. Not only do homes and businesses offer quick access to food, but they also provide an area to nest that's temperature-controlled and guarded against the tough realities of outside living. Outdoors, cockroaches often sleep in areas that are on the brink of the outside of homes and find their way inside after being attracted by outdoor lighting. The common entry points that they use to enter homes include openings around windows and doors, drains, vents, and pipes.Additionally, these pests also are commonly introduced inside used appliances or furniture, in deliveries, or inside potted plants.
Cockroaches thrive in both indoor and outdoor locations. Some species like the German cockroach-like better live indoors while other species like the American cockroach-like better life outside. Whether they are nesting inside or outside, most cockroach species like damp, dark, warm locations. Outside, they nest under flower beds,behind tree bark, under woodpiles, inside the garbage piles, and around sewers.Inside you can find them in kitchens, bathrooms, closets, crawlspaces, andbasements.

When my bug spray guy backed out on me, I was in desperate need to find someone to spray my house fast. Rene was available to answer my questions and was quick to come by. Very knowledgeable and thorough, Agro did a great job. The price for services are affordable and definitely lower than the "other" guys. You won't be disappointed!
We have used Agro for years and we recommend Agro to all of our friends! They are fast, friendly, and best of all their services work! We never have a problem with any creepy crawlies in or around the house. If you want those pests gone give Agro a call!
Rene is TOP NOTCH! We have tried multiple pest control companies and Rene is on time, communicates and never has any issues if there needs to be something taken care of mid service. He is RESEPCTFUL and doesn’t make me or my children feel uncomfortable when servicing inside our home. We had a major mosquito problem in which he bombed and took care of with no hesitation. Agro is a solid family business that we love supporting! THANKS AGRO!
Just moved into a new home that had a really bad cricket problem. Called Argo to come out and get the problem resolved. Rene was able to get me scheduled quickly and came out the next day. He hit all of the problem spots and even told me that if it is not getting better in two weeks he would even come out again. This is the type of customer service that I am looking for in a pest control service.
Rene with Agro pest control is awesome! We first called him out to deal with a gopher who was ruining our yard, he solved our gopher problem so we were able to have turf put down. We then started having him spray the house, we hardly ever see bugs and if we do he comes right back out to spray again. He texts me to let me know when he will be by to spray, which is nice, and he is friendly and kind! I highly recommend Agro Pest Control! :)
