Average Facts and Prevention Tips on Cockroaches

The average cockroach can measure up to two inches in length. They have six legs, two antennae, and some species have wings. Cockroaches can emit unpleasant odors and may also produce sound. These bugs also carry a fear factor with them, and can be difficult to control with retail products because they are very adaptable.
Some additional pest prevention tips for cockroaches to know are:
  • • Cockroaches can enter the home or building in many different ways, from the outside through cracks and crevices, vents, sewers, and drain pipes. We can even carry them in on products like grocery bags, boxes, purses, and on our person.
  • • Homes are an ideal breeding ground for pest cockroaches.
  • • Food, warmth, water, and nesting sites can be plentiful, so breeding continues all year long.
  • • Cockroaches reproduce quickly, and their fast breeding cycle is how they can rapidly infest a space.
  • • They reproduce a little slowly in cooler months, but if they have enough warmth, there may be no natural way to keep the numbers down.
  • • Seeing a few cockroaches during the day may be rare, as they are usually nocturnal.
  • • Overcrowded nests could force out bugs during daytime hours, which is a sure sign of infestation.

Common Cockroaches with Uncommon Habits

Many homeowners and building custodians take on the valiant effort of pest control themselves. They soon find that the ‘common cockroach’ has some uncommon habits when it comes to hiding and adapting. Cockroaches grow immune to regular sprays, traps, or poisons.
