Just the word, cockroach, send shivers down the spines of many people, despite the fact that only a few species actually invade human dwellings and are considered pests. Others are beneficial to the environment because they help to break down decaying material. If you do have cockroaches in your home, the most common place to find them would be the kitchen or pantry. They will be drawn to a food source. This is why it is not uncommon for restaurants to experience cockroach infestations. They will be active year round, and will thrive anywhere they can find food, warmth, and water.
Cockroaches emit an unpleasant odor, can aggravate allergies, and can even carry diseases. Early detection and treatment is key. Sometimes cockroach infestations are difficult to detect because they are nocturnal pests. Therefore, if you are seeing a few cockroaches during the day, do not hesitate to act. They are likely an indication of an infestation. The earlier an infestation is treated, the easier it is to get rid of the problem.
