Do you live in West Chester, PA? How well do you know your fair city? Do you know that violent crime in West Chester is 34% lower than the national average? Are you aware that property values have tripled since 2000? How about the fact that Frommer's listed West Chester in the Top Ten Downtowns in Best Places To Raise Your Family? There is no doubt about it, West Chester is a beautiful place to live and raise a family. But every family has its challenges.

The challenge of raising a family.

It can be complicated trying to make sure everyone has their dental appointments, sport practices, sleepovers and other activities scheduled. You have to juggle vehicles, money, time and other resources to get everyone where they need to be, when they need to be there. And, on top of all that, you have personality conflicts to deal with. "Sarah put her fingers in my jelly!" "James won't let me watch my show!" "Someone stole my earbuds!" Sound familiar?

You spend your days working to keep a roof over your head, motivate your kids to do their homework, punish them when they do things you can't understand how they ever thought was okay to do in the first place, and basically keep everyone from killing each other. There just never seems to be enough time and energy to keep on top of it all. So, when you see a cockroach run across the floor, you may be tempted to keep on going about your business. But you would be unwise to put cockroach control on the bottom of your to-do list.

The problem with free range cockroaches.

A cockroach that is free to run about your home will cause problems for your family. These insects collect bacteria on their bodies and in their bellies because of the dirty places they choose to crawl. They are also thigmotropic, which means they like to have hard surfaces touching them, particularly on both sides. This trait brings them into the grimy places between your oven and the wall, underneath your refrigerator, in dirty pipes and filthy basement cracks. Often referred to as "the sanitation works of the insect kingdom," by the Entomologists that study these bugs, cockroaches are as much at home in a dumpster or sewage pipe as they are in your silverware drawer and cabinets. Inside your air ducts their shed skin, feces and urine can cause pathogens and allergens to become airborne. This can lead to flu-like symptoms, asthmatic issues and worse.
