NY's cockroaches lurk in homes and businesses—multiplying fast and staying hidden.
They are the masters of survival. They find secluded areas in which to hide and can feed on almost anything. Their constant ability to evolve and adapt allows them to thrive on very little and spawn massive nests anywhere.
Signs of Infestation
Feces are one of the very visible signs that you have an infestation. They resemble coffee grounds and are usually in quantities. Cockroaches also omit pheromones that create a noxious and musty smell. The stronger the smell is, the bigger the infestation and the larger the problem. Other signs are dead cockroach bodies and white, oval egg sacks that are found under furniture and in dark corners.
Think you might have a roach problem? All Bugs can come to your residence and help assess the problem. Don't wait for a total home invasion.
Common Cockroach Facts:
Size and Shape: Cockroaches can range from 1/8 inch to over 1 inch long. They have two antennae, six legs, and wings. Their bodies are long and oval with a small head.
Environment: These pests can live in various conditions but their ideal environment is someplace warm with an abundance of food and water. Homes are the perfect breeding ground and allow cockroaches to maintain their nests all year round.
Activity: Roaches are nocturnal and like to stay hidden in dark, moist places. Most hide under furniture, behind appliances, and in cupboards. During the night they will come out to find food and water. Most cockroaches enter hibernation during NY winter months and live in large groups as a means of survival.
Food: Cockroaches prefer sweets and meat. However, they can consume pretty much anything to stay alive. They have been known to eat paper, hair, decaying matter, and almost anything else that is disposed of.
Reproduction: Just one cockroach is surefire indication that more are hiding just a few feet away. Cockroaches reproduce very rapidly. The female American cockroach lives up to 2 years and produces 1 egg sack a week. Each sack contains up to 15 eggs. At that rate thousands of cockroaches can be spawned over a very short amount of time.
Disease: Many of the substances cockroaches feed on and live around are dangerous to our health and can be spread easily by these pests. They contaminate human living space and can cause allergies, vomiting, dysentery, typhoid, and even gastroenteritis in extreme situations.
If you spot a single cockroach in your house or office you can be sure that there are hundreds, possibly thousands, hiding close by. If you are experiencing a cockroach infestation call All Bugs today. We will investigate the seriousness of your pest problem and help you get rid of it.
