The sight of a cockroach crawling over your wall is guaranteed to give you the creeps. It's no surprise that cockroaches, with their long antennae and spiky legs, are among the most detested insects found in homes and businesses. Roaches aren't just found in filthy environments, contrary to widespread assumption. They are drawn to dirty dishes, leftover food, and crumbs, but they can also enter houses through gaps and fissures, drains and sewer pipes, or hitch a ride on other people's bags and baggage.
If you notice any signs of cockroaches in your home, act promptly to identify them and contact Imperial Pest Prevention to get rid of them immediately! We provide comprehensive cockroach control services to protect your home or business.
Spiders and their relatives are called arachnids. Arachnids have the head and thorax combined (cephalothorax) with simple eyes, jaws adapted for tearing or piercing prey, a pair of pedipalps, and eight walking legs. Arachnids include spiders, scorpions, pseudoscorpions, amblypygids( tailless-whip scorpions), schizomids (micro-whip scorpions), palpigrades, harvestmen, ticks, and mites. Spiders are the only arachnids with special glands in their abdomen that produce silk.
