CARTER PEST CONTROL DISCUSSES COCKROACH SEASON: WHEN IS IT?

Cockroaches are found all over the world except Antarctica, simply because they cannot tolerate cold weather. Warm weather can bring about a successful mating season for this pest. An average female cockroach can produce over 400 eggs in her lifetime. When the weather starts to get colder, cockroaches make their way inside homes to seek warmth, creating a year round problem. Cockroaches are one of the most rugged insects and have the ability to survive on limited resources. Some species can survive a month without food. It is important to be conscious year round of roaches and their impact, especially since they have the ability to breed rapidly and in large numbers.
