This past spring was certainly a wet one for the Las Vegas area and we now are starting to have over 100 degree days – perfect for bugs and pests to come out to annoy us. Expect to see a rise in the amount of Ants, Cockroaches and other insects this time of year. With the increase of these insects predators like scorpions and spiders that feed upon them may also increase. Flying insects like moths, gnats and flies will also be more noticeable. You may even see more bats around your home as they will be out feeding on the increased number of flying insects.
German cockroaches are light brown to tan in color with two dark, almost parallel stripes located on their backs, just behind their heads. It is the most common cockroach species of cockroaches since they can breed at a rate of up to six generations per year. They like to live in warm, humid places close to food and moisture source and are frequently found in kitchen environments and bathrooms and can really frighten you when you turn on the light.
