…Cockroaches are found all over the United States and all around the world. You’ve probably heard that cockroaches are hardy creatures and that’s true. They can survive freezing temperatures and they can live for a month without food. A cockroach can even survive for up to a week without its head.

But did you know that cockroaches can pose serious health risks if they find their way into your home? Cockroaches carry 33 types of bacteria 6 parasitic worms and 7 other types of human pathogens as they walk through sewage and garbage. The spines on their legs pick up germs that can contaminate food areas.  Cockroaches are also a threat to people with allergies. Their droppings saliva and bodies can cause allergic reactions and aggravate symptoms of asthma especially in children. In fact as many as one in five children have a severe reaction to cockroach allergens.

Cockroaches typically enter our homes and properties in search of the same things that we humans need;  food, water, and shelter. That’s why we usually see them in damp areas like basements or bathrooms with your food sources and kitchens and pantries. They can squeeze through tiny
cracks in the home’s exterior to get inside. In fact a male cockroach can fit through an opening as thin as a quarter.

Luckily, there’s some easy ways you can keep cockroaches out of your home. Kitchens and bathrooms are the rooms most commonly infested, so be sure to check under sinks and appliances for signs of an infestation. Repair any leaky faucets to eliminate moisture and clean crumbs off of counters.  Keep food sealed in containers. When you bring groceries from the store, inspect them before putting food items away. Vacuumed often and take the trash out regularly.Call Pony Express Pest Control today.
