Crush Your Roach Problem

Their presence alone makes you cringe and itch.

Roaches are common pests that they hide in kitchen cabinets, sinks, bathroom, attic, vents, and other places with excess moisture. In the U.S. alone, there are nearly 70 species of the nasty things. In Tennessee, there are only three roach species: brown-banded, German, and Oriental.

No matter what type makes its way into your house, getting rid of them is top priority. Carriers of bacteria, roaches (also known as cockroaches) multiply fast. But there’s no need to fret. Pest Shield has you covered.
