Pest Control - Information about Cockroaches

Cockroach Infestation

People often blame a cockroach problem on poor housekeeping. Cleaning floors, kitchens, and bathrooms is useful and very important to reduce food sources used by cockroaches.  These pests may get inside and cause an infestation for other reasons. Cockroaches can hitch a ride on infested items brought inside. They can also get indoors via cracks and gaps in the home’s exterior. Sometimes cockroaches enter through drains or sewer pipes. There are a few species of cockroaches that can fly inside when attracted to lights.

Pest cockroaches can be carriers of various diseases. Cockroaches are commonly found near waste deposits or in the kitchen, where food is present. Know as omnivores, these pests are not fussy about where they get their meals. Garbage, sewage, carrion, and crumbs are all fair game. As a result, their digestive systems retain disease pathogens from anything they’ve eaten.

In addition to cockroach feces, the pests’ body parts, saliva, and cast-off skins can trigger allergies. They are also known to trigger asthma attacks. Symptoms often worsen when fans or HVAC ducts cause this debris to become airborne.
