Common St. Johns County Roaches:
American Cockroach, German Cockroach. Florida Woods Cockroach
Invasion Points: Cockroaches will enter from the outside through cracks, vents, sewer pipes and drain pipes. They also can be brought in via boxes or produce.
Perfect Home: A home or restaurant is ideal for roaches providing food, water, warmth and nesting areas which equals fast multiplication.
Lifespan: The American Cockroach lives on average for about a year.
Hard to Kill: Since cockroaches are nocturnal, it is difficult to find them. Additionally, cockroach eggs are naturally protected from insecticides. Cockroach control can be a losing battle if you are not training in dealing with them.
