According to Science World, as many as 500 new cockroaches can come from a single roach pair! Once they are established, they have 350 million years of adaptation and evolution keeping the cockroach infestation alive and well in your home.
The German Cockroach and The Brown-Banded Cockroach have proven to be especially problematic in plaguing homeowners as the most troublesome species in the United States. Good Housekeeping shows that products such as boric acid powder, which sticks to their delicate leg hairs and is ingested during grooming, have been proven to effectively remove this menace from a home.
Controlling Cockroach Infestations
In addition to bringing viruses and bacteria into the home, infestations of cockroaches also bring allergens into your home. Cockroach feces, saliva, eggs, outer covering, and the bodies themselves are all allergenic to humans and especially to those with asthma or respiratory conditions, according to the USDA. Studies have shown that the allergens can linger long after the cockroaches have been eliminated and removed, causing them to leave behind heath-compromising allergens that can remain in the area for years.
