Cockroaches are one of the most common domestic pets in the world. They are attracted to their home in search of food and mostly water. The three most common types are German, Eastern and American cockroaches. These tiny creatures are not only ugly to look at, but also harmful to your health. They act as carriers of different germs and bacteria that cause disease.
They contaminate space and surrounding items with waste products, which can cause allergic reactions in people and pets. They can also damage household items like books, clothing, electronics, cables and more. In addition, when present in large quantities, they produce a mild odor of mold.
As cockroaches breed quickly, you need to take steps to get rid of them as soon as possible. When they are present in small numbers, you can easily control their growth with little effort and time.
There are a lot of commercial products on the market that can help reduce a cockroach infestation, but these products pose health risks for you and your family.
