    A cockroach infestation can be a tough pest situation for anyone to deal with. Whether you’re a homeowner or business owner, these unsightly pests need to be dealt with quickly to ensure the safety of your family, or customers. Cockroaches are notoriously hard to exterminate so it’s advisable to hire a trusted pest control professional to deal with these insects. Cockroaches carry diseases, infest stored food, and spread these diseases through their excrement.

    Cockroach infestations can be serious if not taken care of in a timely manner. Because of this, General Pest Solutions, LLC is the Pest Control Company in Summerville SC and Charleston SC Tri County Areas to take care of roaches.

    Cockroaches are nocturnal pests, so even if they have established themselves in your home, you may not notice them until they’ve had plenty of opportunity to breed. Cockroaches prefer to live and breed in quiet, out of the way places like basements, crawlspaces, and even inside the cavities of walls, so even when they forage for food at night, they may remain hidden from even the most vigilant homeowner.
