About Cockroaches

What are Cockroaches?

Cockroaches have six legs and two antennas.  These are nocturnal pests that prefer to be active at night. Some species also have wings, however, these are not particularly skilled at flying. Cockroaches may also produce unpleasant odours and hissing sounds.

Because cockroaches are most commonly found near waste they can be carriers of disease. With warmth, an abundance of food and water, homes are a great breeding ground for cockroaches. They can enter the home through cracks, vents, sewer and drain pipes.

Debris created by cast-off skins, dead bodies and droppings can aggravate allergies, especially in children and the elderly.
