General Pest Control


Las Vegas is largely known as the gambling capital of the United States. Millions of dollars are won and lost every day. There are many unseen and some apparent dangers that may have you gambling with your health, and if you have children, their lives. Roaches are among the most populous insects in the world and Las Vegas is home to four different species:

  • American cockroach
  • Australian cockroach
  • Oriental cockroach
  • German cockroach

There are many do it yourself ways to get rid of roaches, but they rarely work. Roaches have unique parts in their mouths called palpi that come in handy when humans try to poison them. Palpi allows them to taste something without having actually to eat it.

Roach infestation takes place very fast. The female roach will mate only once in her life, but she will stay fertilized for her whole life and will not need the male to produce eggs. Should your business or commercial property become infested, you can be out of business or fined by health officials in a relatively short period of time. Cockroaches move rapidly from drains, bathrooms, gardens, and sewers and can spread germs that cause diseases. They feed on everything including human feces. According to the World Health Organization, cockroaches can spread disease by contaminating human food with germs they pick up in bathrooms, garbage dumps, etc. and they may play a supplementary role in the spread of some diseases. They are proven or suspected carriers of the organisms causing:

  • Diarrhea
  • Dysentery
  • Cholera
  • Leprosy
  • Plague
  • Typhoid Fever
  • Viral diseases such as Poliomyelitis.
