How Did my Property Get Cockroaches?
Usually, your home is likely to be infested by cockroaches due to poor housekeeping. That said, there are other pertinent reasons for the infestation. For instance, some of these pests get into your homes from the cracks in the exteriors of your house, while others enter through sewer pipes. There is also a third kind of roach that enters your house while being attracted to lights.
Is Cockroach Infestation a Serious Issue?
Cockroaches are not merely a common pest, but they are also the most stubborn ones. So, if your house is infested by them, it will be difficult to control the situation as these insects comfortably hide in a wide range of areas. They also breed really fast and eventually develop a strong resistance to pesticides. Since cockroaches can taint your food with salmonella bacteria and E. coli virus, it isn’t safe to overlook them. What’s more, exposure to their feces can even trigger asthma and allergies.
How Long does It Take to Treat Cockroach Infestation?
The time taken to treat cockroach infestation usually depends on the species and the extent of infestation. Homeowners often use over-the-counter items to treat this, but they are not very effective. Since these pests are highly adaptable they might also be resistant to certain methods of extermination.
Reproduction and Life Cycle
Cockroaches usually go through an egg and nymphal stage before they become adults. The eggs developed by female roaches are kept in resilient egg cases called the oothecae. This oothecae in turn contains a wide range of nymphs which are dependent on these species. The time taken for the eggs to hatch depend on the type and kind of species.
Like we already mentioned, the female cockroach will produce an egg case called the oothecae. This oothecae stores multiple eggs and is enclosed by a protein like substance which eventually hardens into a strong casing. While some species of cockroach drop this egg case, there are others that carry it till the eggs are ready for hatching.
Cockroach eggs usually hatch because of the pressure enforced by the hatchlings within the eggs. After emerging from the egg case, the immature form of these wasps is called nymph. Nymphs can be best defined as bright white baby cockroaches. They eventually increase in size by taking in air. It is this air which also gives them a dark hue. Cockroach nymphs assume a greyish brown hue and eventually darken with progressive molts. Their development to adult can range from few months to years.
Post completion of the nymph stage, adult cockroaches enter the picture. These species are just a larger variant of the nymphs. That said, there are certain species of these cockroaches, like the Madagascar hissing cockroach, that doesn’t have wings even in adulthood.
