Problems with Cockroach and Infestations.

Most Cockroaches are introduced to a home or business through packages that have Roaches within them. Roaches love paper and corrugated cardboard boxes. Even if you inspect packages and luggage for Cockroaches you may miss their egg capsules, so before you know itYOU have a Cockroach pest problem, if not a full blown infestation.

There are four kinds of Roaches that can infest homes and businesses in the New York area. They are the German Cockroach, the Brownbanded Cockroach, the American Cockroach, and the Oriental Cockroach. There is a fifth roach called the Pennsylvania Cockroach, but these are an outdoor species of roach that do not reproduce indoors. If a Pennsylvania roach is indoors there is probably only that one who flew yes flew in, by accident. However, if you have any of the other four types of roaches, odds are that at a minimum you have dozens if not hundreds.

Besides the obvious repulsion from simply seeing roaches, however a roach problem/infestation presents a very serious public health issue. Roaches carry a host of human pathogens/diseases like E. Coli and Salmonella which can be deadly diseases resulting in food poisoning, vomiting, diarrhea, and serious dehydration, and there are records of these diseases resulting in death to small children or infirmed elderly people. The feces, urine, and casings of roaches have also been known to cause allergies, asthma, and skin irritations. Roaches can stain surfaces and produce a disagreeable odor.
Properly identifying the pest as a Roach is important, because there are many insects that look similar to the Cockroach. In general, a Cockroach has a flattened body, oval in shape, with antennae about as long as it's body, and has a head that is turned downward and hidden when looking at one from above. Although most Cockroaches have wings, only a few species fly. Depending on the type of Roach their favorite dwelling places differ. Some like it warm and moist and others seek cool dry spaces. Roaches are nocturnal, so if you see one in the daytime/lighted roomyou probably have hundreds¦if not more. Roaches are scavenger eaters, and can survive on just about anything  from garbage, to paper and the glue in book bindings to electronic wire casings and even soap. A general rule about most Roaches regardless of the differing climatic conditions they may prefer, Cockroaches tend to group together and spend most of their time in cracks and narrow tight spaces where surfaces touch them on both sides of the Cockroaches body. This is why Cockroaches usually travel along corner and surface edges.
