Facts & Information
What are Cockroaches?
Cockroaches are ovular-shaped insects with small heads, flattened bodies, and long antennae. These nocturnal insects prefer dark, warm, moist areas. Cockroaches are notorious for their survival skills and very high reproduction rate. A female can produce anywhere between 200-300 offspring in a year. Cockroaches are also known to spread a variety of bacterial diseases, including E. Coli and Salmonella.
Why Do I Have Them?
Cockroaches are in your home looking for food and a safe place to breed. That doesn’t mean your house is necessarily dirty; cockroaches are skillful hitchhikers. They can easily hitch a ride indoors on infested boxes or furniture. Roaches can also enter structures through sewer pipes and cracks around the foundation. Kitchens, basements, sewers, and food processing facilities are common areas for roach infestations because they provide access to food and moisture.
Why Should I Be Concerned?
Cockroaches are well-known for their very high reproduction rate. A female can produce hundreds of offspring in a year! If not controlled immediately, a small problem can soon turn into a full-blow cockroach infestation.
Cockroaches are filthy pests that breed and feed in unsanitary areas like sewers and garbage. They can contaminate food, food preparation surfaces, and utensils, which may cause serious allergic reactions or illnesses in some people.
Clothes or furniture with food or sugary drink stains will attract cockroaches. As cockroaches feed on these stains, they cut holes in the fabric.
Odors and Stains
Cockroaches emit a foul-smelling musty odor and leave behind brown or black stains on surfaces or walls.
