The charm of the Hayhurst area of Clackamas is in its rural evocation. Though it’s not at all far from Portland proper or even bustling commercial areas of Clackamas, the Hayhurst neighborhood retains its storied, provincial ambiance. Families residing in this quiet neighborhood are particularly susceptible to many varieties of pest infestations more commonly associated with urban areas, such as cockroaches.

Cockroaches reproduce incredibly fast; a female cockroach lays up to 50 eggs at a time and can lay over 1,000 in a lifetime.  An egg can go to full maturity and start reproducing within just 90 days, so time is of the essence when dealing with cockroaches.

Cockroaches will typically be in areas that provide warmth, water, and food- usually the kitchen, where they can find all of these things under the refrigerator or behind the oven.  Since cockroaches have been known to carry 33 different types of bacteria, the kitchen can become an unsanitary place.  In addition to the bacteria, cockroach feces can also be an allergen and can induce asthma-related symptoms.

Cockroaches can infest a home many different ways. It may not be possible to avoid a cockroach getting into your home, but there are certainly ways to remove them.
