Dealing with cockroaches can often feel hopeless because of their incredibly resilient and persistent nature. If you have ever had to deal with a roach infestation, you know it becomes clear very quickly how hard they are to eliminate. These pests have survived since prehistoric times, and there have been fossils found with roach remains found from hundreds of millions of years ago. This species is particularly hard to exterminate because of their resilience.
Cockroaches can vary in size and color, but they are most commonly known to be approximately two inches long and a variety of different shades of brown. They can carry dangerous diseases that could transfer to your food like E. Coli and salmonella. They can also cause severe allergic reactions, skin rashes, and digestive issues. These insects are experts at hiding, making them hard to detect unless you know the signs of an infestation or find them scurrying away in the middle of the night when you turn the light on.
