About Cockroaches

Cockroaches are closely associated with humans and their surroundings. They are the oldest and the most resilient insects on earth.Today’s pervasive and robust cockroaches look very similar to the early ones. The indoor existence of these insects usually forges an unhygienic situation and can constitute numerous health concerns to humans.They contaminate food and spread germs.

There are more than 4500 types of cockroaches, but the ones that humans need to worry about are of five types: American Cockroaches, Brown-banded Cockroaches, German Cockroaches, Oriental Cockroaches, and Wood Cockroaches. Most of these species in Canada have wings but are not competent for continuous strong flights.Their oval-shaped, flat body helps them to hide in cramped areas.

American cockroaches are the largest ones found in the house. Their wings develop ones they turn into adults. Females can incubate about 150 offspring per year.These cockroaches eat everything, including plants and insects. Their life span is about 2 years.

Brown-banded Cockroaches have two pale bands across their dark-brownish bodies. This is where they get their name from.They avoid light and water if they can. Females have smaller wings than the males.Their life span is about 5-6 months.

German cockroaches are the most common ones and are found all around the world. Their life span is about 100-200 days. Kitchen and bathrooms are their favorite places which provide easy access to food and water. A female German Cockroach can hatch between 20-40 eggs, and unlike other roaches she carries them with her until they are ready to hatch.This makes them immensely relentless and intractable to get rid of.

Oriental cockroaches are large and dark compared to other cockroaches. They are considered as the dirtiest of all cockroaches and are mostly found in pipes and drains.

Wood Cockroaches are similar to the American Cockroaches, slightly smaller in size. Their attraction toward light makes them different from other species.They are considered as ‘outside roaches’. They favorite hideouts are wood piles, decaying logs, and loose bark.Life span of a wood cockroach is of about 2 years.

Cockroaches precisely seek out cozy homes which have easy access to food, water, and warmth. However, they may cause serious health issues to humans.Before coming in contact with the kitchen surface areas or food utensils, cockroaches crawl through garbage and dirt, therefore spread the bacteria.

According to pest control experts, health complications produced by the cockroaches commence with the allergens they fabricate. To be more specific – the saliva, droppings, and shed body parts of a cockroach contain proteins which may develop allergic reactions in many people.

Cockroaches can also trigger asthmatic conditions; cause food poisoning; and pneumonia. According to The World Health Organization (WHO), cockroaches can spread bacteria which cause diseases like:

  • Cholera
  • Gastroenteritis
  • Typhoid fever
  • Plague
  • Skin infections
  • Campylobacteriosis

These infectious insects prefer locations which are dark, moist, warm, and secure for them. Most common ones are:

  • Basements
  • Ductwork
  • Under kitchen sinks
  • Furnace rooms
  • Crawl spaces
  • Drains and pipes

However, major issues are related to the ones in the kitchen, as they are immediate source of unhealthy environment.It is challenging to keep the roaches out. But you can start with reducing their access to food and water. Maintain good hygienic conditions and apply caulks or boric acid powder near pipes, sinks, cabinets, and other small cracks. If there are signs of the roaches in the house, seek help from the experts.
