How cockroaches spread disease and what you can do about it.
Cockroaches are among the most common and repugnant pests found in homes and buildings all across the country. While the mere sight of these long-antennaed intruders causes many a homeowner to shudder in disgust, the more disturbing fact is that roaches often get by without being spotted at all. Given their nocturnal lifestyle, cockroaches are usually discovered by the unsuspecting flick of a light switch in a dark room, followed by their trademark scattering. This means a cockroach colony could grow for months or even longer before being noticed by homeowners.
