About Cockroaches

Cockroaches have been associated with the transmission of certain diseases. They have been linked to allergic reactions in children, due to fecal deposits. Cockroaches reproduce quickly and are difficult to eliminate without professional help. Most over-the-counter products kill only roaches that are exposed to the materials. Roaches normally prefer the safety of cracks and crevices and may not be immediately exposed by over-the-counter treatments.

Cockroaches most commonly encountered in this area include the German Cockroach, American Cockroach, Oriental Cockroach, Brown Banded Cockroach and the Oriental Cockroach. If you encounter cockroaches in a home or food handling business it is most likely the German Cockroach.
