Usually cockroaches are available in bad sanitary conditions of a place. The main principle in cockroach control is to follow conditions health requirements, to remove their power point, water sources and hiding-places.

Rats appeared millions years before mankind, so it’s impossible to tell the exact day of their appearance. Their homeland is also difficult to define: Africa, Australia, and Eurasia. Following people some species began to spread to the North. Little by little they took over the world and became people’s “companion”.
Rats don’t just spread infectious deceases but they also cause an economical damage by eating feeds, food and damaging products, lowing food quality by leaving hair, dung, urine on it; as well as fire caused by short circuit because of isolation damage.
There are 370 species and 1500 subspecies of mice all over the world. They survive despite the fact that they are always in mortal danger and have lots of enemies. It can be explained by their amazing adaptation ability. Mice could even survive in a fridge at temperature up to -10C.
Main damage is caused by mice’s habit to eat everything they see and drop dung everywhere. Mice cause discomfort by grinding off their cutting teeth on everything except glass, porcelain and metal.
