Cockroaches are pests that most people would rather not think about. For the most part, they are known as gross insects that are known for carrying pathogens that can transmit disease. They are also notorious for sneaking up on unsuspecting homeowners and their looks are frightening.

The best pest control company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to inform you that the verdict this year is that there will be 6 more weeks of winter. Last year, Phil had also predicted that there was going to be 6 more weeks of winter.
