Roaches

Cockroaches – Where they live:

Adults and nymphs can be found hiding in cracks and crevices of walls, cabinets and any other areas close to a food or water source. Cockroaches have an amazing ability to adapt and survive. They eat almost anything and can squeeze into virtually any area, including doorways, windows, utility lines and even sewers.

Cockroaches often infest areas with poor sanitation. These conditions are often places where disease-causing organisms can be found. They can spread diseases such as dysentery, diarrhea and food poisoning.

  • Environment: Your home can be a breeding ground for cockroaches. With plenty of food, warmth, water and nesting sites, they can remain active year round.
  • Reproduction: Cockroaches reproduce quickly. For every one you see there can be many more hiding and multiplying.
  • Eluciveness: Because cockroaches typically are nocturnal, if you’ve seen one, you probably haven’t seen them all. If you see cockroaches during the day, this is likely a sign of infestation.
  • Access: Cockroaches can enter your home through cracks and crevices, and vents.  They are capable of living in all conditions and can actually be transferred into a home via boxes, grocery bags and even suitcases.
