Roaches are a problem that you and your Broken Arrow exterminator can solve together. Cockroaches are pantry pests that we often find in our homes and businesses. They love to be in our kitchens, pantries and feed upon the same foods that we eat. These insects not only parasite off of our food storage, but they can also pass on diseases to people. It’s important to keep these insects out of your home. So in this article, let’s take a good hard look at cockroaches, their life cycle, and what you and your Broken Arrow exterminator can do to prevent roaches from invading. 

Roach life cycle and broken arrow exterminator

Roaches develop using an incomplete metamorphosis. This means that they hatch from an egg as a nymph. A nymph is a smaller version of the adult insect. Most female cockroaches will lay their eggs in an egg sack, and then hide the egg sack. The German cockroach actually carries it on her back. German cockroaches are the most common cockroaches we see in pest control situations. Once these nymphs hatch, they will feed upon leftover food attached to the larger adults and also they’re droppings. Check out our reviews!

As they grow, they will eventually get to the point where they need to shed their exoskeleton. This process of molting will give them a new exoskeleton that can grow with them as they get larger. They eventually get large enough to be a full grown adult. The larger cockroaches are the ones that will go out and forage for food. They’ll eat the food that they find and then as they walk around they’ll pick some of it up and it will stick to their exoskeleton. When they come back, this gives the young nymphs a source of food in addition to those droppings. Contact your Broken Arrow exterminator for more information.

The food chain

Cockroaches are at the bottom of the food chain. They often eat the refuse left over from other animals. They feed upon droppings and dung, and are often found in sewers and other drainage ditches. Because of this, they’re often in contact with dirty things that are covered with diseases. If a cockroach is in a dirty area and then find this way into your pantry it can pass these diseases onto your loved ones through the food. Because of this it is important to call a Broken Arrow exterminator to keep these insects out of your home and away from your loved ones. Roaches can be a real big problem if they find their way in. Infestations can get large fairly quickly and are difficult to eliminate. Call your Broken Arrow exterminator for help with cockroaches.
