The American cockroach is the largest of the house-infesting cockroaches. Despite its name, the American cockroach is not native to North America, but was probably introduced via ships from Africa in the 1600s.

Roof Rat Found in coastal states, roof rats are more prevalent in urban and rural areas, and are found in homes less often than mice because of their larger size. They live everywhere outside and could enter at any time, but fortunately, this does not occur often. Usually, most home invasions occur in the fall, because the seeds and plants on which rodents feed outside are gone. Rats and mice must then seek new food sources such as your home. Rats are excellent climbers and are capable of gaining entry through holes around soffit vents and around cables entering the building, through holes in gable vent screens, and through turbine and box vents on roofs. Many garage doors on homes allow enough spaces for rats to fit underneath, as well. Rats may find harborage in many areas around the home -- especially in stacked firewood, stones, bricks and piles of leaves or other debris.
House Mice Mice are more numerous than rats and are more widespread throughout urban and suburban communities. These creatures are found in almost every part of the country from urban to rural areas, and are especially prevalent in urban and suburban communities. Mice are found in buildings more often rats because they are smaller and are able to find more available entryways into a building. Mice can fit through a crack or hole 1/4 of an inch or larger - or about the width of a pencil. Mice are mostly active during dusk or at night. They do not like bright lights. They live in a wide variety of hidden places that are near food sources and construct nests from various soft materials. House mice primarily feed on plant matter but are omnivorous. They will eat their droppings to acquire nutrients produced by bacteria in their intestines.
House Fly Flies around in virtually all parts of the world except in the cold arctic and antarctic ice caps. House flies usually come around in great numbers during the summer months, when the weather is hot and humid. They reproduce rapidly and lay their eggs in warm, moist organic materials such as manure, garbage, decaying vegetables and fruits. Although flies cannot bite, they have the ability to transmit diseases due to their propensity for feeding on animal wastes, garbage, human foods and other decaying matter. They carry bacteria and viruses that cause ailments such as diarrhea, cholera, food poisoning, dysentery and other infections. Flies also destroy our food, especially grains and fruits.
