About 30 cockroach species out of 4,600 are associated with human habitats. About four species are well known as pests.*
Roaches are nocturnal, social (live in groups) and protective, females and nymphs are isolated from foraging. Roaches uses its antennae to generates the olfactory and gustatory sense to their food and way around. Roaches in over-crowded populations are more active.
Life cycle of roach is about 170 days, females can produce 30-40 eggs every 2-3 weeks, 3-4 generations in a year and a 27-fold population increase can occur in just three month.
Roaches have been known to cause deeper health issues that can affect a family. Droppings or body parts of cockroaches have been known to trigger asthma attacks, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Because certain proteins are found in cockroach droppings and saliva, it can lead to a number of allergic reactions, especially in asthma sufferers.
According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, a whopping 23% to 60% of urban residents who have asthma are sensitive to allergens produced by cockroaches.**
