While there have been over 4,000 cockroach species found living all around the globe, there are only four that are considered pests here in America: the American cockroach, the German cockroach, the Oriental cockroach, and the Asian cockroach. These roaches are commonly found invading both residential and commercial properties.
By nature, cockroaches are resilient pests that range in size from ½ of an inch long up to 2 inches in length, depending on the exact species. Cockroaches feed primarily on decaying organic materials and, due to this behavior, have actually been found to be beneficial for the environment. However, though they may play an important role in helping to keep our planet clean, there is no question that these filthy pests are unwelcome in Oklahoma homes and businesses!
Yes, cockroaches are dangerous to have hanging around your home or business. In fact, cockroaches are high on the list of pests you do not want invading your property! As beneficial as their habits are to the environment, having insects that spend most of their time crawling through garbage, sewers, and waste spreading harmful bacteria across your food prep areas is a definite danger. Studies on these pests have discovered that they carry around 33 different kinds of bacteria on their bodies including Salmonella and E. Coli. Additionally, their shed skins can trigger asthma attacks in people children, the elderly, and individuals with breathing problems.
If you’re dealing with a cockroach infestation in your home or business, it is most likely because they have found a suitable place to breed. A suitable breeding site for cockroaches is a warm, humid space that provides them easy access to food and water sources; boiler rooms, basements, steam tunnels, and sewers are some of the places they often find to meet these needs. And it only takes one female cockroach finding a way into your home or business to start a full-blown roach invasion on your property!
