Dealing with cockroaches is a job for your Broken Arrow pest control company. Cockroaches are pantry pests that get into our pantries in an attempt to find our food. They also like to make homes in our wall voids and drink water from waste and leaky faucets. These insects can get into your home and then cause unsanitary and disease-ridden situations that are unsafe for you and your family members. So in this article, let’s take a good hard look at cockroaches, their life cycle on what you and your Broken Arrow pest control company can do to protect yourself and your loved ones from these invading insects.

Cockroach Life Cycle

The Cockroach uses an incomplete metamorphosis to develop into an adult. It will start as an egg. In most cases, the female will lay eggs into an egg sac and then hide the egg sac. The exception to this rule is the German cockroach which is a common cockroach that we see in kitchen infestations. This cockroach will actually carry their egg sac on their back. Once the eggs hatch, small nymphs will emerge. 

A nymph is the young of an adult cockroach. This nymph will feed on the droppings of the adult cockroach or any food that may be stuck to the exoskeletons of the larger cockroaches. As It grows, it will eventually outgrow its exoskeleton and will have to molt. This is the process by which cockroaches shed their outer exoskeleton and then create a new one. After shedding its exoskeleton multiple times, it will become a full-grown cockroach and will be able to reproduce. Contact your Broken Arrow pest control company for help with cockroaches.

As cockroaches continue to reproduce, many of these exoskeletons are pushed off from their body. These exoskeletons will start to break down and create a dust that gets in the air that’s terrible to breathe. A clear link exists between childhood asthma and cockroach infestations, especially evident in public housing projects in cities like New York. These insects pose a risk to your home and to your children’s health. In addition, they feed upon very dirty things. It’s often that we see cockroaches feeding on droppings and sewers and drainage ditches and then feeding upon dead animals as well. All these places are filled with bacteria and viruses that can be transmitted to your young ones. 

If a cockroach after eating nasty meals touches your food surfaces, then they could be spreading these diseases to yourself or your children. Contact your Broken Arrow pest control company to eliminate these cockroaches. Check out our reviews!
