The Reason Why People Are Afraid Of Cockroaches

Cockroaches are one of the most feared insects in New Jersey as well as throughout the world.  They are believed to date back to antiquity and have the amazing ability to adapt to the environmental changes throughout the years.  Cockroaches have the ability to resist adverse conditions, especially when humans are in hot pursuit.

There are many different species of cockroaches, and for the most part they have not changed much in appearance for millions of years.  Despite the many species, only a few types are considered to be pests in homes and businesses.

So why do so many people hate cockroaches?

Here are some of the many reasons that cockroaches are one of the most hated insects on the planet report Monmouth County, NJ exterminators.

• Cockroaches are able to chew into packaged food sources causing everything they crawl across to become tainted by their fecal matter.

• Cockroaches are able to enter any type of dwelling because of their ability to squeeze into tiny cracks and crevices.

• Cockroaches love eating human and pet food.  Absent of normal food choices, cockroaches will never starve as they will gladly take a nibble from a piece of soap, eat hair, toothpaste, shed skin, wallpaper glue, and even eat paper.  Not many items are off-limits to a hungry cockroach.

• Studies have shown that cockroach fecal matter and saliva contains allergens which cause asthma to flair for many people.

• Cockroaches multiply at an alarming rate.  Some people believe that if you see one cockroach in a home or business, that there are 100 more that you do not see.
