The German cockroach is the most common cockroach found in structures. They can invade your home at anytime of the year and once they do, they can increase in population very quickly. A cockroach can produce 30-48 eggs at a time and those eggs can go on to reproduce in 30-45 days.
At first, German cockroaches will find food, water, and warmth in the home which is usually found in the kitchen and bathroom. But once an infestation occurs they can be found anywhere in the structure and can be difficult to get under control.
Cockroaches can bring about many health and safety concerns. When they invade your home they leave fecal matter and other debris on food and food preparation surfaces. Roaches are also known to cause allergies in children. The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences reports “one-in-five children in the United States have severe sensitivities to cockroach allergens, which increase the severity of asthma symptoms.”
