cockroachsThey come scurrying around the house once the lights have gone out and with them they bring along diseases such as salmonella, dysentery and gastro. Cockroaches will rest during the day in dark warm places around your home. Places that they like to hide out in are crevices within the kitchen, behind fridges, wall cavities, sub-floor, roof void, food stores and around drains just to name a few.

Even the cleanest of homes are able to become infested with cockroaches. This is due to tiny dcockroach-infestationeposits of grease, sugar and other food sources in areas of your home that are difficult to get into and clean. Sanitation and hygiene are extremely important in deterring cockroach infestations.

These pests are not picky eaters. They will eat anything from leftovers, garbage, animal excrement, pet food and many more food sources. Once they have crawled around in disgusting areas, they will then walk around your home in areas that you prepare food, your cutlery, plates or areas that you engage in everyday activity.

Cockroaches will contaminate your home with their droppings, shed skin and any other form of bacteria or disease that they have picked up along the way. Cockroach infestations can be regarded as a health threat to humans. Cockroach excrement is able to make breathing problems such as asthma and allergies so much worse due to the air becoming contaminated with the secretions from their bodies.
