Cockroaches multiply and adapt quickly. Once there is a cockroach infestation, it can be very hard to get rid of them since they will increase in population rapidly. In the German cockroach, for example, the female lives about 200 days. Each egg case that she lays includes thirty to fifty eggs and in her lifetime, she will produce between four to six egg cases. Once cockroaches infest a home, they are rarely seen as they are nocturnal and can live up to a month with little or no food. They can also survive by eating nearly any organic matter. In the home they will feed off of book bindings, furniture, soap, glue, shoe linings, and other dead insects.
Although there are over 4000 species of cockroaches, in North America, there are mainly 4 types that infest human dwellings. They are the American, German, Asian, and Oriental cockroaches. These vary in size from about 1/2″ (German), up to 2″ (American). In America, the species that is most common in homes would most likely be the German variety. While cockroaches do not bite and are not poisonous, they can pick up disease-causing organisms either in their guts or simply on their body parts and legs. Subsequently the germs can be deposited on kitchen surface areas, utensils, and food items. The presence of cockroaches can also lead to health problems, including asthma in children.
A roach infestation is not necessarily an indication of poor hygiene. However, an untidy environment will make it all the more difficult to get rid of them. If you spot a cockroach at home or work, there are likely more of them hiding nearby. Roaches enter buildings in search of food and water or they may be transported in packaging materials, supplies, or garments. Once in, they multiply quickly, so you have to be very careful not to offer food and water.Keeping your home clean, free of standing water, food, and even crumbs will help prevent the welcoming of these dirty insects. You should also be sure to avoid allowing the roaches to find a point of entry into your home.
