This is one nasty visitor!
Cockroaches enter a home from outside through cracks, vents and drain pipes. Or, they may be brought in on grocery bags, inside boxes, and even on your person! Once inside they reproduce quickly. So, if you have seen one, you probably have not seen them all. There may be many more hiding under the sink, behind the dishwasher and stove, or inside the cabinets. At night, cockroaches get active foraging for food. From bread and sugar, to paint and paper, a cockroach will eat just about anything! With plenty of food, water and warmth, they can remain active all year round.
Cockroaches are not harmless insects. They can spread diseases such as Dysentery, Typhoid, Polio and have been known to carry Staph, E. Coli and Salmonella. Roaches especially pose a risk to those with asthma and allergies. Debris from cast off cockroach skins, dead bodies and feces can trigger acute asthma attacks that last for hours. In fact, researchers have found that asthmatic children exposed to cockroaches are 3 times more likely to be hospitalized than other children with asthma.
