If you’re battling a cockroach infestation without the help of a professional pest control team, you’re likely fighting a losing battle. These adaptable pests need only small amounts of food and water to live like kings in your home. If you see a cockroach in your home, act fast! It only takes 20-30 days for one egg capsule to hatch, and each of those capsules can hold up to 48 cockroach eggs.
Your home doesn’t have to be filthy to be an attractive home for cockroaches. Something as simple as an unseen water leak can give a growing cockroach intrusion all the sustenance it needs to thrive. You may be surprised to know that grocery bags and boxes in cabinets or under the sink make the perfect place for cockroaches to lay their eggs.

Habitat and Behavior: German cockroaches are one of the most common household pests found in the world. They are very resilient and boast a very short period between birth and sexual maturity. They are mainly found around human habitats such as homes, hotels, food processing plants, restaurants. German cockroaches can literally make you sick as they have been found to carry the pathogens that lead to several diseases as well as bacteria and viruses.
Diet: Although they prefer sugar, starchy foods, meat or grease, these roaches are omnivorous and also may scavenge on whatever they can find if the need arises.
Control: Treating the infested area with a mixture of baits and sprays is most effective. Baits are especially recommended since German cockroaches are known to hide in hard to reach areas where normal sprays may be ineffective.
