Cockroaches Are Resilient - You Need An Expert To Get Rid Of Them!
Many People Suffer From Katsaridaphobia, or Cockroach Phobia. And, For Some It's Almost Debilitating!
There are two categories of roaches: the invaders, like waterbug-type roaches, and the peri-domestic roaches.
In North Carolina, invaders are usually the Smoky Brown Roach and the American Roach. They’re generally harmless; while they might get in, they will typically only live a few days before dying. They’re not typically going to get into the food and pantry. If you have a moist basement, clogged gutters, or other hospitable conditions, they may find their way inside. But they don’t want to be inside. They need to be treated outside where they live and breed.
Peri-domestic cockroaches are another story, as they like to live and breed in the house with us.
The most common is the German roach, and they spread fast. This is one of the most common and prevalent cockroaches on the planet. A single female will drop an egg case containing 30 eggs, and they grow to maturity in 6 weeks and begin reproducing again. A home can quickly become overrun.
To make matters worse, there are more than a dozen different pathogens associated with this type of roach, including E. coli, staph, and strep. Studies have shown that breathing the dander and waste from these roaches exacerbates asthma and can actually cause children to develop asthma.
Simply spraying is not going to be enough, and a “Bug-Bomb” can actually make the problem worse. A multi-pronged approach to treat and prevent roaches is necessary.
