Cockroaches can enter your home in many different ways, from the outside through the cracks and crevices, vents, sewer and drain pipes. We even bring them in on products like grocery bags, boxes, purses and on our person! Your home provides an ideal breeding ground for cockroaches with plenty of food, warmth, and nesting sites. Cockroaches are nocturnal, remain active all year round, and reproduce quickly. Cockroaches can cause health issues because of the dust created by cast – off cockroach skins, dead bodies and droppings. This can aggravate asthma/allergies, especially in children and sensitive individuals. They also carry a range of serious illnesses including salmonella, dysentery, gastroenteritis and typhoid. The risk is particularly high in homes with children, the elderly or those fighting illnesses. Cockroach droppings also cause eczema and asthma.
