Pest control cockroaches, roaches

Cockroaches are one of the hardest insects in urban areas. Getting rid of roaches is not an easy task. There are over 4500 species of roaches in the world although only about 30 species are found in the average home or commercial premises.

Tropical cockroaches can reach to nearly 3 inches in length, whereas the usual household variety is 1.2 inches long. They can survive from being under water for 45 minutes and can live off the glue from a postage stamp. The allergens cockroaches carry have been linked to asthma in humans. They can carry an arsenal of diseases which can or will infect humans, especially the elderly and the young.

Breeding habits

Cockroaches can expect to live for only one year, although they have been known to survive for up to four years. Each female can lie between 300 - 400 eggs in a year. Some roaches lay eggs in small holes around the home, whilst some species carry their eggs on the outside of the body. Some species carry their eggs inside their own body until they hatch.
