Just about everyone knows what a cockroach looks like; they are everywhere! While it is often jokingly stated that if anything could survive a nuclear war, a cockroach could—they actually have survived in nuclear testing sites! This can make getting rid of cockroaches incredibly difficult.

The Dangers of Cockroaches

In addition to being one of the most dreaded household pests, cockroaches are also one of the hardest to get rid of. Cockroaches multiply very quickly, and they also adapt quickly, too. Besides just being gross to look at, cockroaches transport several kinds of bacteria, parasitic worms, and other types of human pathogens. This makes it imperative to work with a pest control agency quickly if you see them in your home or business.

Different Types of Cockroaches

There are over 4,000 different varieties of cockroaches, but only about thirty of them can comfortably live with humans. This number can be further reduced to include only four varieties: the main species that cause problems in homes and businesses in America.

The four main species 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. No matter which type of cockroach you’re dealing with, it’s important to get professional help to treat an infestation.

Cockroach Infestations in the Home

Once cockroaches infest a home, they often are rarely seen. Cockroaches are nocturnal and also tend to hide. They can live up to a month with little or no food, but can also survive by eating book bindings, furniture glue, soap, dead insects, shoe linings, and more.

The presence of cockroaches can lead to a definite impression of uncleanness- especially if your guests see them. The truth is that it is not necessarily uncleanliness that will produce a cockroach manifestation. However, uncleanliness will cause it to be much more difficult to get rid of them. The presence of cockroaches can also lead to health problems, including asthma in children.
