Things Cockroaches Need To Survive

Roaches are interesting pests. They can withstand a tremendous amount of radiation without dying. They can be stomped on and, 9 times out of 10, come out unscathed. But, if introduced to temperatures below 0 degrees Fahrenheit, they will die. Conversely, certain cockroaches such as the German cockroach cannot survive in heat above 50 degrees for an extended period of time. Of course, this changes based on the species of cockroach. What doesn’t change is their need for food, water, and shelter. If your home has these three things, and cockroaches wander inside, you can be sure they will stick around for as long as they can.

The Dangers Cockroaches Pose

When it comes to cockroaches, the good news is that they are not venomous nor do they have painful bites you need to worry about. The bad news is that they can carry a variety of dangerous diseases and bacteria wherever they go. Consider this. A typical cockroach enjoys spending time around sewers and garbage, they also enjoy scavenging for food off your countertops and dining areas. This leaves harmful bacteria all around these areas where you make and eat food. When they do this, you run the risk of getting sick.

Here are a few diseases cockroaches have been known to spread:

  • Salmonellosis
  • Typhoid Fever
  • Cholera
  • Dysentery
  • Plague
  • Leprosy
  • Gastroenteritis

All of the above illnesses are life changing and not worth the risk of having cockroaches in your home.
