What are cockroaches?

There is no doubt that cockroaches are considered one of the worst of the insect species. People are terrified of them and feel uncomfortable if any cockroaches lurk in their living or working space. They breed quickly, run fast, and are extremely hard to eliminate. Cockroaches were labeled as ‘unwanted scavengers who live in human settlements’ by the World Health Organization. Today, they are present in millions of homes and offices across the country. The most common types of cockroaches in Alabama include the German cockroach, American cockroach, smokey brown cockroach, and Oriental cockroach. 

Are cockroaches dangerous?

While cockroaches do not directly harm humans, they travel through unsanitary places such as sewers, construction sites, and dumpsters and carry bacteria and viruses with them. They can contaminate food, surfaces, and dishes with their bacteria, causing health issues including vomiting and fever. Certain groups of people are also allergic to the skins of cockroaches, which can trigger their asthma by coming in contact with them. Whether or not cockroaches cause bodily harm, they can interfere with your daily lifestyle and create stress in the home.

Maintaining hygiene inside your house, keeping entrances closed during the summer months, and utilizing insecticides effectively prevent them from entering your household.

Where will I find cockroaches?

Cockroaches are commonly divided into two broad categories: the ones with wings and the ones without them. Cockroaches with wings are tough to find and eliminate since they can fly into hiding spaces. They mostly hide in dark and damp areas and come in contact with human settlements during the night. German cockroaches live inside, while American cockroaches primarily reside outside.
