Life is not good when it is infested with cockroaches. Life is not hygienic when it is infested with cockroaches. Life’s no longer disease-free when you are… oh well, you get the gist. Ranging from 34 to 55 mm in length, the size of an American Cockroaches body is not entirely proportionate to the size of the nuisance it can create. No, it neither bites nor does it fly around scaring the living daylights out of someone.
On the contrary, it can actually travel quickly and can fit into small cracks and under doors. It’ll leave behind only its droppings as a proof of its existence. In the case of residential areas, one may be sure to find these menaces living in basements and sewers, depending on how cold the temperature may get and the number of possible entry points to a building. Possible entry points include sewer connections, under doors, or around plumbing, air ducts, or other openings in the foundation. American cockroaches are also attracted to moist environments and food products so a good way to discourage an infestation may be to cut off these sources in the first place.
American Cockroach Control
Okay, we get the point. American cockroaches are hard to catch. Why go through so much trouble to get rid of them? Since American cockroaches usually prefer habitats such as near sewers and garbage, they are more likely to pick up disease-causing bacteria on the spines of their legs and body and spread them onto wherever they crawl into. Such diseases are known to consist of at least 33 kinds of bacteria, including E. coli and Salmonella. There are also six kinds of parasitic worms and at least seven other kinds of human pathogens. Additionally, cockroaches are known to elicit allergic reactions from both adults and children. This is similar to pests such as rodents.

A single cockroach could move in through a single crack and result in a full-blown infestation. This is where the Westchester County Pest Control comes in.
