Cockroaches: exterminating these bugs is definitely a challenge
Cockroaches feed on all types of organic materials including foodstuffs, paper, wood, soap, glue in books, cloth, plants, hair, garbage, sewage and even insulation on electrical wiring. They are carriers of salmonella bacteria that cause food poisoning and carriers of other disease organisms.
They also leave an undesirable odour on materials they contact and may cause allergic reactions for some people.
Exterminating these bugs is definitely a challenge, but with the proper tools and roach killer products, the battle can be won.
The best way to get rid of roaches includes a complete treatment process with three basic steps: sanitation/preparation, combination of insecticides technologies, and progress monitoring.
Cockroaches get into almost everything, multiply rapidly, and can survive for several months without food and up to two weeks without water.
Inadequate application of insecticides can lead to pesticide resistance in cockroaches.
