Does Having Cockroaches Mean That Your House is Dirty?

Cockroaches are often associated with poverty and uncleanliness, but these bugs will move into anyone’s home. You may be a victim yourself and know the embarrassment that a cockroach infestation brings. You may be wondering if you have not been doing enough to prevent the problem. Unfortunately, however, this can happen to anyone. It is not necessarily your fault that you have cockroaches. If you are having cockroach problems and want them solved, contact Cockroach Control Toronto now and we’ll get started. 

Cockroaches are omnivorous, scavenging insects. Of the thousands of species of cockroach, only 1% of them are pests. The most common species in Canada is the German cockroach, which is about 12 to 16mm long, with a shiny brown body and flightless wings. This roach likes to hide in the dark corners of kitchens and bathrooms, coming out at night to feast on whatever it can find or even can bite you and you might need to know how roach bites look like.  Cockroaches can survive for months without food. Even if you were to cut off the head of a cockroach, it will continue to breathe! This is because they have little breathing holes located across their thorax. Not only are cockroaches tough to kill, but they are incredibly fast breeders. Within a year, one roach can produce up to 300 offspring.

Again, anyone can get cockroaches. These are highly mobile and adaptable creatures that will move into any space that offers warmth, food, and moisture. Cockroaches will migrate through the walls of a multi-residential building from one unit to another. They’ll crawl through the plumbing or enter your home by hitching a ride on a piece of furniture. Once they get inside, cockroaches like to hide in kitchen cabinets, underneath appliances, and even within appliances like coffee makers and microwaves. They love to hide in all the nooks and crannies of your kitchen or bathroom. It does not stop there, once the situation really gets out of control, they might even infest your clothes!

Cleaning your home can help deter cockroaches and keep them under control, but no amount of cleaning will make them disappear. Good habits like the regular washing of dishes, taking out the garbage, and proper storing of food are all important, but no matter how much cleaning you do, you could still get cockroaches. And while you might not be dirty, cockroaches are. You may need to clean up after them. Cockroaches are a health hazard that leaves behind a mess of feces, exoskeletons, and eggs wherever they hide.
