The most common roach species encountered in the structures of our region is the German Cockroach (Blatella Germanica). During a female German Roach’s lifetime (less than one year), she can produce as many as 8 egg cases with up to 48 eggs in each case. That equals almost 400 new roaches! Add in all the reproduction of her offspring, and you can understand why Cockroaches are such a formidable opponent to professional pest controllers and residents of a roach-infested structures alike.
It is extremely important to call in the experts when a cockroach infestation is first noticed. German Cockroaches are known for transmitting diseases such as Salmonella, and contributing to childhood asthma. These pests can be more than just disgusting, they can be downright dangerous. The longer an infestation is allowed to exist in your home, the harder and longer it will take to remove them.
