Cockroaches – the mere name sends shivers up many a person’s spine. Personally, I’m not a big fan of insects, and especially the ones that can very quickly disappear out of sight! Cockroaches in particular really get me going – they travel quickly, can hide in small cracks and fit under doors… not to mention their ability to fly! A female cockroach can lay anywhere between 10 and 40 eggs at a time, and can do this up to 30 times in her lifetime! That’s a lot of baby cockroaches, and with such breeding capacity it’s easy to see how they spread quickly and become a major problem.
Although Cockroaches prefer warmer climates and are typically not very tolerant of the cold, winter does not give us a break from these pests. They are capable of surviving indoors during the colder months, and they know it too
Cockroaches are scavengers – meaning they eat anything and everything. It’s because of this that they are believed to carry and spread a number of diseases, including salmonella and gastroenteritis. Recent studies on the insects have indicated them being responsible for causing allergies too. One of the best methods of prevention is keeping your home clean and hygienic – food left out, dirty laundry, pet’s food bowls, all of these things can be a major attractant to these scavengers.
