Roaches

Roach (or Cockroach) (order Blattodea) – Considered any of around 4,000 insect species. They’re among the most primitive of winged insects and appear very similar to the way they did more than 320 million years ago.

Roaches can be found in many homes near a food source, such as kitchens or near the garbage, and are known to carry a variety of diseases.

Roaches are typically about one inch in length, though they can grow to be larger in warmer climates.

Roaches can enter your house just about any way possible.  From cracks in wood, through windowsills, sewage drains or even boxes.  Their ideal living environment is just about anywhere inside a home or building, as long as there’s some sort of food source.

Roaches reproduce quickly; for every one you see, there are many more hiding somewhere. Roach droppings, skin, dead bodies and droppings are well known to bother allergies.

Roach eggs are safe from insecticides, and a roach infestation can be just plain difficult to conquer yourself.
