Make your house a roach-free zone
Cockroaches carry bacteria such as E coli and salmonella and are harmful for people with allergies to their feces, saliva and their rotting carcasses. But even if they weren’t a health hazard, nobody wants roaches in their home. Keeping your house clean, sealing up openings to the outside and storing food securely are all important, but none of these steps guarantees roaches won’t move in. Roaches will eat anything, including normal household items like books and wallpaper paste, which is why it’s impossible to completely eliminate any possible food source.
How to get rid of them? You will want a professional with the right materials, equipment and know-how.

Roaches can live for up to a week without a head. They don’t need their heads to breathe, but they do need them to drink, so they can live until they die of thirst.
