Cockroaches Our Name Says It All!


Cockroaches are adaptable insects found living in a wide variety of indoor and outdoor environments. They have semi-hard, oval-shaped, flat bodies with smaller heads compared to their bodies. Cockroaches are scavengers and feed on a wide variety of food and non-food items. Roaches are typically social and are prolific breeders living together in large groups. Common species of cockroaches living in our area include the American cockroach, the Australian cockroach, the German cockroach, and the brown-banded cockroach.

Inside, cockroaches are found living and nesting in a variety of locations, including above ceilings, in attics, inside crawlspaces, and behind large electrical appliances near pipes and faucets. They are also commonly found in basements, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and kitchens. Outside, they live in mulch, on trees, in garbage dumps, and near sewers. Cockroaches are considered dangerous pests and great care should be taken to keep them out and away from your family and stored food. Before invading your home, they were living in and crawling through some less-than-sanitary items and areas. Because of this, they carry a large number of viruses, bacteria, and parasites on their bodies, legs, and in their feces. Cockroaches are known to cause diarrhea, dysentery, and other serious health concerns. In addition, their shed skins and excrement can trigger allergic reactions and asthma attacks, especially in people with weakened immune systems and children.

To stop cockroaches, it is important to inspect your home’s exterior and seal any spaces found in its foundation. You should place weather stripping around windows and doors and make sure that door sweeps are installed, especially on basement doors. Place tight-fitting mesh covers over all vents. Eliminate food and water sources by repairing leaky pipes and fixtures, using dehumidifiers, and storing all food inside air-tight containers or inside the refrigerator. Inspect used furniture, appliances, and packages for cockroaches before bringing them inside.
