Health Concerns from Roaches
Cockroach excrement and cast skins also contain a number of allergens to which many people exhibit allergic responses, such as skin rashes, watery eyes and sneezing, congestion of nasal passages, and asthma.
How we get them:
Cockroaches typically enter homes via boxes, grocery bags, suitcases, furniture, etc.
German, Brown-banded, Oriental, and American cockroaches are some of the more common types found in our area.
The German cockroach is the most common cockroach species in houses, apartments, restaurants, hotels, and other institutions. Females produce a light brown, purse-shaped egg capsule that is less than 1/4 inch long and contains two rows of eggs. Each capsule contains up to 48 eggs (usually 30 to 48), and adult females usually produce from four to eight egg capsules during their lifetime.
