COCKROACHES AND HEALTH - COCKROACHES ARE IMMUNE TO ALL PESTICIDES AS OF NOW.
Cockroaches live in close association with people. They are tropical in origin but in the temperate zones most species live in parts of houses and other buildings where warmth, moisture and food are adequate. Cockroaches usually live in groups. They are mostly active at night; in the daytime they hide in cracks and crevices in walls, door frames and furniture, and in secure places in bathrooms, cupboards, steam tunnels, animal houses, basements, televisions, radios and other electric devices, drains and sewer systems.  

They are pests because of their filthy habits and bad smell. Some people may become allergic to cockroaches after frequent exposure. Cockroaches can sometimes play a role as carriers of intestinal diseases, such as diarrhea, dysentery, typhoid fever and cholera.

They also breed rapidly in suitable environments, with a female German cockroach having 50 offspring every three months. 

 The key to control is cleanliness, which may be difficult in houses where there are children and domestic animals. The control is difficult in apartments/townhouse where cockroaches may have easy access from adjacent quarters.

Re infestation occurs from outdoors in warm areas, or along heating ducts and water pipes in apartments, or from groceries or luggage brought from cockroach infested areas
