What Are Cockroaches?
A cockroach is a flat, oval-shaped, brown insect. It has six legs and a small head with two long antennae. Some cockroaches have wings, but most don’t use them for flight. They are nocturnal insects but can sometimes be seen during the day. If you spot one during the daytime, it’s usually a sign of an infestation as there may be overcrowding.
How Did I Get Cockroaches?
There are many reasons cockroaches may infest a home. The most common reason is that they are looking for a nesting site. Human dwellings are prime locations for insects to live and breed in. They enter through gaps and cracks in the house’s structure, then nest in crevices inside walls, under floors, and, in severe cases, in the living space of the home.
Can I Get Rid Of Cockroaches Myself?
The honest answer is that most homeowners don’t have the ability to remove cockroaches on their own. They are very persistent and hardy creatures that are immune to most brute-force, unskilled removal methods. Most over-the-counter insecticides won’t work against them cockroaches. Where roaches are the problem, professional pest control is the only real solution.

Health Concerns: Living With Cockroaches
As cockroaches roam your home at night, they leave behind their feces, old shells and body parts, empty egg cells, saliva on food, and sometimes their own carcasses. The following are some concerns associated with the material they leave behind:
Cockroach feces, saliva, and shed exoskeletons all contain allergenic proteins that cause reactions in many people exposed to them. These symptoms can include:
- Chest tightness or wheezing
- Skin rashes
The same proteins that cause allergic reactions also heighten the frequency and severity of asthma attacks, especially in children and the elderly.
Cockroaches crawl everywhere in the home, including cupboards, pantries, and kitchen counters. They feed on anything left out, and they drink from moisture on plumbing pipes and under sinks and bathtubs.
