What exactly is an American cockroach? Well, we know one thing, they really are "American" cockroaches, and we Americans own this fact. Unlike those Germans who refer to German cockroaches as "Russian" cockroaches. These American cockroaches, which are also known as "water bugs" or "palmetto bugs" are a reddish-brown color, about 1.5 inches long or longer, and have wings, though they seldom fly.
Good Afternoon Steve,
I need to write to you and express my sincere thanks for the type of people you employ.
Steve Heaney came to our house for a check-up today and I was immediately struck by the cleanliness of his uniform and truck despite the dirty situations he must surely encounter.
He listened patiently to the 100+ questions I had as I toured our property asking about this and that. He answered every question quickly, and even was able to identify insects I was afraid were growing in numbers around our home/office.
Please be assured that you have probably received 10+ new accounts from our recommendations. We feel that if we lend our name to friends in support of N.E.P. CO., we will never have someone come back to us and complain that service was bad.
I would like for you to know that Steve, and all of Bill's techs deserve high praise for the job they do, and do so well.
Feel free to contact me at your convenience,"
- Derrick Carden, Sales Manager, Marketing & Manufacturers Ltd.

Fall has arrived, and that means that pests are coming into your home in search for food and shelter for the cold weather to come. Sometimes they will be in your attic, walls or basement! Here are several pests you should be on the lookout for this fall:
- Ants - ants are ready to venture out in search for crumbs and sticky messes on the floor of your home or business
- Bed Bugs - travel during these fall months can instigate a costly bed bug infestation
- Spiders - spiders follow the other pests coming in because of the cooler weather and plan to snack on those other pests
- Yellow Jackets - yellow jackets are drawn to the water and food they can find near your home
