Cockroaches like to hide in dark spaces and only come out when they need to eat. They can go days without food and even live with no heads. They have been known to carry bacteria into homes or offices that can make people and pets sick. They are harmful to your health and need to be exterminated from your home.
Although the damage that they create on your property is not quite as severe, cockroaches are insects that are closely related to termites. These creatures are one of the four most commonly known and dealt with pest species. In fact, for approximately 320 million years, cockroaches have been roaming the planet. Due to this reason alone, they’ve adapted to various types of weather and environment conditions. Basically, these creatures can live almost anywhere. Their bodies can tolerate temperatures ranging from tropical heat to ice cold environments. Roaches are generally classified as omnivores, meaning they can eat on a variety of food product. This can include sandwiches, fruits, leather, paper glue, hair, dead insects, soiled clothing, and more. With this being said, they can eat almost any and everything, which makes them very toxic and dirty. Cockroaches harbor symbiotic protozoans and bacteria in their digestive systems to be able to digest cellulose. While roaches may seem rather small, their bodies consist of tubes that are attached to different openings in their body. This allows the passage of both oxygen and carbon dioxide to go in and out of their bodies.
Get Rid of Their Food Source
While these insects may be constantly feeding on almost anything in sight, you can still cut off their source of food. That could be those forgotten cereal boxes at the back of your cabinets, the opened package of chips left on the kitchen table, unwashed dishes in the sink, unnoticeable traces of food on the floor, crumbs and etc…you get the idea. Start off by emptying your counters completely and wiping cleaning up all spilled food and leftovers thoroughly. Another task you can do is wash your dishes every time you finish a meal. This means doing your dishes however many times you eat within your day, and that may seem a little extensive, but it’ll be worth it when you no longer have to deal with these pests.
Cut Off Water Supply
While cockroaches may be fond of eating on your meals and snacks in the kitchen, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they need these sugary and salty food items to live. It turns out that roaches can live for up to 30 days without food, but they can only survive for 7 days without water. This means the less water they have access to, the sooner you can rid of them. Clean up all countertops and sink areas, both in your kitchen and bathroom(s) from top to bottom, to beneath, reaching every inch of surface. Make sure to check your house for leaks and other plumbing problems that can cause moisture and dampness. Immediately fix these to begin eliminating their supply.
