How To Get Rid of Cockroaches and Kill Roaches
There is nothing in the world more hated, and perhaps feared, than that bane of mankind—a cockroach infestation. Long the annoyance and fourth class unwanted resident of major urban cities, the cockroach resists even when resistance is futile. Cockroaches carry germs and disease, as if they weren’t already repulsive enough to have around.
Capable of flight, six-legged, reproductively active and hardy to the point of (organic) invincibility is the dreaded roach. A threat to human health, cockroaches have few redemptive benefits except to displace and trigger tropical and subtropical forest floor elements into a mishmash. Even the Greeks had a word for the cockroach – “blatta.” Cockroaches are most common in tropical and subtropical climates, usually living close to human-occupied buildings or high urban living densities with food and room to grow. Some species such the American or Chinese breeds are present in large populations when supported by food and water from human dwellings and are routinely found in and around garbage or in kitchens or food storage areas.
Cockroaches live up to a year and are mainly nocturnal, but when singly present may run away when exposed to light. However, infestations increase boldness and daylight activity. Cockroach infestation in cities as populous as New York were long the fodder of spoofs on “Saturday Night Live,” mocking the freakish size and boldness of the cockroach and its place it American domestic life. The female may produce up to eight batches of multiple offspring in a lifetime. These foster batches of 30-40 odd clear roachlings turn darker within hours. A roach female can produce in her lifetime 300-400 offspring. So the presence of many cockroaches implies an exponential threat for future infestation. The “one” that got away may return a million fold. The female cockroach can be impregnated only once to lay eggs for the rest of its life. Molting and birth rate characteristics affect this reproductive rate with functions of food and room to lay eggs unimpeded. Allowing one single cockroach to live means perpetuating possibly a million eggs.
The German, American, Brown-Banded, and Oriental cockroaches are the Earth’s Most Wanted urban pests.
Cockroaches often are a health threat. Habits and high reproductive rate of pest cockroaches can lead to large populations spreading disease organisms, contaminating food, causing allergies, and even worsening asthma.
Serious Cockroach removal services
Cockroaches have been reported to spread at least 33 kinds of bacteria, six kinds of parasitic worms, and at least seven other kinds of human pathogens. They can pick up germs on the spines of their legs and bodies as they crawl through decaying matter or sewage and then carry these into food or onto food surfaces. Germs that cockroaches eat from decaying matter or sewage are protected while in their bodies and may remain infective for several weeks longer than if they had been exposed to cleaning agents, rinse water, or just sunlight and air.
