Your Tulsa exterminator can deal with cockroaches. Cockroaches are pantry pests that get into our kitchens and pantries and feed upon our food or water and use our shelter as their own. The problem we have is that cockroaches are also filthy insects that carry a lot of diseases with them. Keeping them away from our food products and loved ones is important to keep diseases away from us. So in this article, let’s take a good look at cockroaches, their life cycle and what you and your Tulsa Exterminator can do to protect yourself and your loved ones from these insects.

Cockroach Life Cycle

When a female cockroach becomes pregnant, she will lay eggs in an egg sack. She will often hide this egg sack somewhere until it’s ready to hatch, making it difficult to find. The German cockroach is unique in the fact that the female will actually carry the sack on her back until the eggs hatch. Once they hatch, a nymph emerges. Nymphs are smaller versions of the adult cockroach. As they grow, they will eventually outgrow their exoskeletons. When they do this, they will molt or shed their exoskeletons, revealing a new exoskeleton. They will continue the growth process. This will happen multiple times until they become a full-grown adult. The larger adults will go out for food. 

Cockroaches eat what they can and they do this by picking up pieces of food and leftovers on their exoskeletons. When they make their way back, the young ones will eat the food off their exoskeleton and also feed upon the droppings of the adults. Contact your Tulsa Exterminator for help with cockroaches.

Your Tulsa Exterminator Can Deal With Cockroach Diseases 

There are different diseases that are carried by cockroaches. The reason for this is because they are truly bottom feeders. They feed upon dead and dying plants, animal wastes and droppings. We often find them in sewers and drainage ditches. And these dirty places on these dirty things, they often pick up bacteria on their exoskeletons. This bacteria can be transmitted to your food and then cause someone in your family to get sick. In addition, these insects molt often. Cockroaches have to multiply very quickly because a lot of predators will feed upon them. So during the molting process, a lot of dust is put in the air. This dust can cause a lot of breathing problems, especially in children. Contact your Tulsa Exterminator for help with roaches. Check out our reviews!
