Scatter the Roaches
All cockroaches are thigmatropic, which means they like to feel pressure on three sides of their body. Because of this, cockroaches spend as much as 75% of their lifetime in cracks and crevices. Cockroaches are also nocturnal. So if you see one, there can be as many as 200 or more hiding and multiplying in the surrounding walls and other secluded areas.
Homes are ideal breeding grounds for cockroaches. With plenty of food, warmth, water, and nesting sites, cockroaches can remain active all year round. Cockroaches can enter a home from the outside in many different ways – through cracks and crevices, vents, sewer and drain pipes, even in grocery bags and various deliveries.
A newborn cockroach becomes an egg-laying adult in 36 days. Because most types of cockroaches lay as many as 35 to 160 eggs per capsule, and because of how fast the eggs mature, cockroaches can multiply and infest very rapidly.
Allergies and asthma can be severely aggravated by the type of dust that becomes airborne from cast-off cockroach skins, dead bodies and droppings. This airborne dust that comes from cockroaches can also trigger asthma attaches in children and sensitive individuals. Cockroaches can also contaminate food with salmonella (food poisoning) and other diseases.
Do-it-yourself treatments are usually ineffective. Cockroaches are extremely good at hiding, and their eggs are naturally protected from pesticides. Without special equipment, materials and know-how, cockroach control is nearly impossible without the help of a professional. Particularly, German roaches require lots of preparation to get treated, so call us today and we’ll take care of the issue.
