Different Types Of Roaches

Are Cockroaches Harmful To Humans?

Cockroaches are filthy pests that can spread disease, contaminate food, and cause allergies! The allergens left behind by cockroaches are often very irritating to humans and have been known to cause sickness, allergies, diarrhea, and even asthma in children. A cockroach can survive for more than a month without food or water and over 45 minutes without air.

Cockroaches Love The Kansas City, Missouri area Climate And Once They’re In Your Home, It Can Be Nearly Impossible To Get Them Out

The cockroach is one of the most common and hated insects around. This species of bug has evolved to adapt to a wide range of environments, and is found in humid, tropical regions all over the world. The KC metroplex isn’t tropical, of course, but cockroaches can survive in nearly any warm climate (and some cold climates, too!).

Cockroaches travel to the KC metroplex from all over the world in luggage, airplanes, long-haul trucks, and shipping containers. The pests or their eggs can make their way into your home unnoticed through grocery bags and other packages. The cockroach has adapted to live in urban areas, and they are some of the worst pests to have in your house.

The cockroaches’ ability to reproduce as rapidly as every three days means that the population can soar within weeks of the initial entry. Roaches can adapt to nearly every situation they encounter, so they are difficult to eliminate.
