Why Fall Cockroaches Are Becoming a Problem Again in West Chester
November 23, 2018
Here in West Chester, Pennsylvania we are all aware of the chill that fall brings to the air and the beautiful changing colors of the trees around us. Whether or not you enjoy the brisk weather that comes along with the change of the season, we can all agree that something no one looks forward to is the pests that are beginning to desperately seek shelter from the coming winter months. Among those pests are cockroaches.
Creepy, disgusting, and disturbing are all words that many of us use when describing cockroaches—and rightfully so! All three common types of house cockroaches are about as disgusting as the filth they typically walk through and reside in. As the days begin to grow colder, cockroaches are searching for a shelter with a food source that is hidden, moist, and warm. More often than not, they can find a spot that caters to each of those needs within our homes.
Cockroaches get into homes in a number of ways; through piping, foundation gaps, drains, and even in the boxes or paper bags we carry in. Whichever way they get in, it does not change the fact that they bring a lot of issues and health problems with them. Roaches have even been linked to asthma in certain children due to the allergic reactions caused by cockroaches’ secretions, droppings, and shed skins. Other health concerns arise for West Chester residents when it comes to what types of environments roaches have been found in, as well as where they commonly travel. Cockroaches can bring several bacterial and viral pathogens into the homes they choose to invade, including gastroenteritis, Salmonella, dysentery, and other immune system diseases.
