The first thing to do if cockroaches have gotten into your kitchen is to not panic. While cockroaches are disease-carrying filthy pests, they can be safely eliminated. After you’ve set your mind to remaining calm, the first thing you should do is call a pest control professional to help you remedy the situation quickly and efficiently.

Problems that Cockroaches Bring to Homes

In and of themselves, cockroaches aren’t all that dangerous. In fact, some people even keep them as pets. However, their ability to roam anywhere and be attracted to moist dark areas is what lends to them being dangerous. You see, they will crawl across animal feces, through a garbage dump, around trash disposals, and in and out of toilets and then just a quickly crawl over your kitchen counters, across cookies left on the table, over bed pillows and even your toothbrush. As they do so, their bodies deposit all the bacteria that they picked up from the dirty places onto the clean places. Cockroaches in large numbers have also been known to trigger allergies and bring on asthma attacks in people who are prone to these conditions.

One Cockroach Usually Means More

Cockroaches are attracted to areas where there is both moisture and a plentiful food source. If one has found its way to your home, it’s likely that others have too. If you see one scurrying across your kitchen floor at night, there are probably many more hiding in the dark shadowy cabinets, under your kitchen sink, and in wall voids. Cockroaches reproduce rather quickly, from egg to full-grown cockroach in no time at all. One cockroach can lay about five eggs at a time, so you can see how in just a very short amount of time, one cockroach could lead to hundreds hiding out in your Texas home.
