Cockroaches are a much-hated, disease-bearing pest that can cause a great deal of distress. No one likes to see them in their home, because they’re a filth pest that can indicate unsanitary conditions. Cockroaches are known for being extremely hardy, able to withstand a variety of less-than-ideal living conditions. Because cockroaches gravitate toward damp, dark environments, roaches encounter all kinds of filth and can pose many health risks. If not handled quickly by a professional pest control company, a cockroach infestation can become dangerous.
