Your Creepy Roommate: The Cockroach Invasion

Your Creepy Roommate: The Cockroach Invasion

One of the most notorious home invaders that we deal with is none other than the cockroach. These little rascals are unwelcome because they are downright creepy and carry bacteria that can lead to health problems. The six-legged scurrying you may hear or see can be a tell-tale sign of a cockroach infestation.

Cockroach Lifespan and Breeding Habits

(How long do cockroaches last?)

Cockroaches have an impressive breeding rate, producing up to 300 offspring in a year, making getting rid of them difficult. And let’s not forget that these creatures are survival experts. With their ability to live for up to a week without their heads, these pests are the epitome of resilience.German and American cockroaches have a lifespan of about a few months to over a year.

When are Cockroaches the Worst?

(What time of year are roaches the worst?)

When does the cockroach soiree typically begin? While these resilient bugs can be found all year round, the warmer months encourage their activity. These cold-blooded critters multiply as temperatures rise, making summer the high point for roach-related issues.

Where are Roaches Coming From?

(How can I tell where roaches are coming in?)

Uncovering where these pests are invading from can feel like a game of whack-a-mole. However, common entry points include cracks in walls, drains, and vents. Keeping an eye out for cockroach droppings resembling ground coffee or black pepper can also help identify their favorite hangouts. But remember, these cunning creatures are experts at hide-and-seek.

What Animal Kills House Roaches?

(What animal kills house roaches?)

Nature has provided some creatures that are natural predators of roaches. There are a handful of natural roach rangers, from spiders to geckos and even certain types of wasps. But, relying solely on nature to control a roach infestation might not be the most effective plan. Besides, I don’t think many of us would fancy a house full of spiders and geckos!
