Cockroaches: Basic Information

Cockroaches are among the most common insect pests found inside buildings. They are especially troublesome where food is prepared and sanitation is lacking.

While cockroaches thrive where sanitation is poor, even the cleanest homes or restaurants can become infested. Cockroaches are flattened, brownish, fast-running insects, with long, slender antennae and are known for their ability to breed at remarkable rates.

They are generally more active at night and spend their days hidden in small cracks and other dark, secluded areas. The most common cockroaches in Tennessee are the German, Oriental, and American cockroaches.

Are they Dangerous?

Because cockroaches move freely from filth to food, they can transfer microorganisms that cause food poisoning and other illnesses. Many people are also allergic to cockroach excrement and their cast-off skins, resulting in wheezing, watery eyes, and skin rashes.

For businesses, just the presence of cockroaches alone can be devastating to their reputation so it’s important to prevent infestations from occurring.
