Cockroaches are the most common insect that humans will ever come in contact with. The most common species of this insect are American and German. Cockroaches tend to stick with the humans as we inadvertently provide them with reliable needs; shelter, food, and water. This allows them to thrive and survive. Cockroaches have the ability to squeeze into the smallest of spaces to gain access to your home and most homeowners do not realize there is a problem until there is an infestation. Zip Zap Termite & Pest Control has the skills to rid your home of these pests permanently.
Kansas City is home to a variety of scorpion species. They will hibernate during the winter and come out when it starts to warm up for the spring. This area provides the perfect environment for scorpions. Unfortunately, scorpions will sting you or a family member when they feel threatened or are startled.
