Cockroaches are the Rodney Dangerfield’s of the insect world. Out of 3,500-4,000 species of cockroach, only about 30 are considered “pests,” while the rest perform the useful function of eating organic waste in forests, caves, burrows, or brush. Most people could care less about their overall value and consider cockroaches to be disgusting creatures that spread disease and scavenge at night.
Beetles are a common infestation that occurs in and around commercial and residential properties. You will mostly find beetles active at night and flying around outdoor light fixtures. There are many different types of beetle and depending on the species and tendencies, you can find them anywhere from around your yard, inside furniture, closets or even your pantry foods.
