The American cockroach, also colloquially known as the waterbug, but not a true waterbug since it is not aquatic, or misidentified as the palmetto bug, is the largest species of common cockroach, and often considered a pest.
American cockroach are an average length of around 4 cm (1.6 in) and about 7 mm (0.28 in) tall. They are reddish brown and have a yellowish margin on the body region behind the head. Immature cockroaches resemble adults except they are wingless.
The insect can travel quickly, often darting out of sight when someone enters a room, and can fit into small cracks and under doors despite its fairly large size. It is considered one of the fastest running insects.

The boxelder bug is a North American species of true bug. At about 1/2-inh long, boxelder bugs are black with three red stripes, vertical edge lines on their bodies, and red lines on the edges of its wings. It is found primarily on boxelder trees, as well as maple and ash trees. You may find the red edging of its black wings to be rather pretty, but when boxelder bugs invade your home, they can become quite a nuisance! Although this red and black bug does not cause damage, few people enjoy having large insects crawling out of cracks, onto their walls, windows, lights, or furniture.
Differences between mice and rats may seem obvious to many, but some of the differences may be more subtle than you think. The typical House Mouse is anywhere from two to four inches in length, as opposed to the common, and much larger, Norway Rat which measures seven to nine inches in length. Of course they both fall into the rodent family and both cause extensive damage if they invade your home.

Recognizing that you have clothing moths will be your first step to eliminating them from your home. The signs aren’t usually apparent until you discover damage wrought by the clothes moth larvae. Clothing moths primarily seek out animal-based fabrics, as well as fur, hair, leather, feathers and taxidermy.
