Among the most notable facts about cockroaches is they can live weeks without water, a month without food, and SEVEN DAYS WITHOUT THEIR HEAD! Simply put, it isn’t easy to get rid of roaches.
With a love for warm habitats that provide access to food and water, cockroaches are most often found inside, you know, where we people live and work. They frequently find their way indoors through drains and pipes, then set up camp in dark, wet areas, such as a basement. But that’s just where they stay when off the clock. Otherwise, they’ll prowl around, looking for food and water, inadvertently making a mess of things wherever they go.
Not only are they gross, but cockroaches can aggravate allergies and trigger asthma attacks, especially for young children. These nasty insects can also carry and spread over 30 different types of bacteria, contaminating any open food with which they come in contact.
What’s worse? If you see one cockroach, that’s just the tip of this trashy iceberg. Female roaches can birth over 100 offspring in a single year, creating a full-blown infestation in no time.
