They contaminate everything that touch this filthy insect. Getting them them out of your home is imperative in protecting yourself, your family and your loved ones. In order to do this, it’s important that you know the facts when it comes to dealing with cockroaches. So, in this article, let’s take a good hard 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.


Cockroaches find them selves at the bottom of the food chain. They are eaten by just about every other animal an insect that’s out there. Because of this, they reproduce very quickly. In addition, they have to feed on whatever they can. This makes them natures cleanup crew. They often will feed on feces, carrion, dead plant material, and other dirty things. We find them often in our sewage systems. So if they find their way into your home, it’s probable that they were eating something nasty before they got there. Check out our reviews!

Once they get into your home, they probably picked up many different bacteria on their exoskeleton. These viruses and bacteria can spread to your food. They start eating on food or start even walking on it. They can pass these diseases onto the food, and if someone eats it, they’re going to get sick. In addition, these insects shed their exoskeleton prolifically. This creates a dust that gets in the air and can cause asthma in children. Because of this, its important to contact your Tulsa, exterminator for help if you think you have cockroaches.


For their size, these insects are actually quite fast. Scientist have studied their leg movements in order to understand how they can do this. They’re also able to squish themselves down, quite flat in order to get through thin places and enter into your home or other place. Cockroaches can also go without food for long periods of time if necessary. If this happens, often they will prey upon one another in order to preserve the protein in the cockroach brood. 

Many people have pointed out that cockroaches can survive a nuclear blast. This is true, but in reality, many different insects can survive in a killer blast. Radiation damages cells when they are reproducing. In mammals, our cells are constantly reproducing so radiation will constantly have cells that they could damage. Once a cockroach gets to full adulthood, most of its body is an exoskeleton. Because of this, their cells don’t divide very often making them much more protected to these blasts.
