What are cockroaches?

There are over 4,000 different varieties of cockroaches, but only about thirty of them can comfortably live with humans. This number can be further reduced to include only four varieties that cause problems in homes and businesses in the US and they are the American, German, Asian and Oriental cockroach.  In Tampa, Jacksonville, and elsewhere in Florida, we frequently encounter the German cockroach.

Why do I have cockroaches?

Food, water and warm shelter will attract cockroaches.  Areas that are high in humidity such as basements and boiler rooms and even sewers are especially attractive to cockroaches. The presence of cockroaches can lead to a definite impression of uncleanness, especially if your guests see them. The truth is that it is not necessarily uncleanliness that will produce a cockroach manifestation. However, uncleanliness will cause it to be much more difficult to get rid of them. 

Are they dangerous?

The presence of cockroaches can lead to health problems, including asthma in children.
