Cockroaches are nocturnal. They prefer to live and feed in the dark, so if you see one during the day it's a possible sign of an infestation. Like most small pests they can hide virtually anywhere, though roaches do tend to have some preferred hiding areas.
Bed bugs are small, relatively common insects found commonly in homes. They feed on human blood, usually at night, and they can cause itchy bites that range in severity. Their bites can result in rashes or itchy blisters and bumps for most people, while other people don’t even notice. Some individuals may find that they are seriously allergic to bed bug bites which can make having these critters around even more dangerous.
Termites are responsible for over $1 billion in damages to property each year in the United States. Fortunately, there are ways to exterminate termites and prevent them. Termites work fast so they can often destroy your most treasured items before you even know they're there.
Cockroaches are a common pest in homes all across the United States. The most frequently encountered domestic roaches in Virginia are German cockroaches, while the common species of peridomestic roaches (meaning they live outside) are Oriental cockroaches, American cockroaches, and various types of wood roaches. Peridomestic roaches often move inside when conditions are favorable.
