Cockroaches are persistent pests that feast on crumbs, spills, trash and anything else that they can find. These insects take up residence in dark, warm and moist areas, and they are particularly attracted to cluttered or dirty environments. Although they’re not a danger to the structural integrity of your home, cockroaches carry a number of diseases and transmit them to humans readily. Particularly dense infestations of cockroaches may also bring an unpleasant odor into your home.
Cockroaches often wander around outside until they find a home that smells tempting and is easy to enter. These stubborn critters use a variety of methods to enter your home. Many cockroaches enter by walking through the gaps underneath your doors, and larger cockroaches often find their way into your home through pipes or open windows. You may also inadvertently bring home a cockroach after a walk outside or a trip to the grocery store.
Cockroaches can affect your life in a number of ways. Individuals with allergies may experience a reaction to the feces and skin deposits of cockroaches. Some victims may develop a rash after a cockroach crawls over them. Others may experience an asthma attack after repeated exposure to the cockroaches and their allergens. Children and the elderly are often at the highest risk of an allergic reaction to cockroaches. Cockroaches also carry more than thirty different types of diseases, including salmonella and E. coli. In addition to their negative health effects, cockroaches will ruin your food supplies and may even feast on some unexpected items, such as books.
