This is a cockroach species native to the deserts of Africa and Asia, not to mention the Americas, and it is found in an abundance of locations across the globe. The little guy is a large, black, wingless insect with a wingspan of up to a half inch (10-15 cm). A common pest in homes, lawns, and gardens, cockroaches are a common source of food and shelter for houseflies.
A person who has a single cockroach crawling on one of their hands is a “cockroach finger.” This is a bit of a misnomer because cockroach fingers can’t crawl and will only crawl on the surface of a finger. Some people have one on their nose, while others have one on their entire hand.
As we just learned, cockroach fingers are a common feature of cockroach-infested homes. Once you’ve found a cockroach, you can’t really get rid of it, unless you have antivenin that stops the roaches from crawling to their final destination. The good news is cockroach-infested homes can be relatively easy to remove. Just pull the roach out, clean it, and then you’re done.
Cockroach infestation can be incredibly difficult to remove in some cases. One of the more common things cockroaches do is eat their own poop, so the poop from a cockroach is usually extremely tiny. In some parts of the country, cockroach-infested homes (and even vacant houses) have been known to be infested with cockroach eggs in the walls. The thing is, cockroach eggs are relatively small and can be easily removed if you take the right steps.
Cockroach eggs are pretty tiny, but they’re hard to get rid of. The best way to remove them is to scrub the walls with an antiseptic soak rag. Clean the roaches out, and you’re home and dry. But, as anyone who’s dealt with cockroach infestations knows, taking care of the roach can be tricky.
Here at Cockroach Control, we know that cockroach infestations can be quite painful. It can cause significant pain, especially if the infestation is deep inside the house. If the infestation is superficial, and its only purpose is to make the house look dingy and drab, then roach eggs are an easy fix. We often recommend that homeowners scrub the walls with a solution like Eucerin.
Eucerin is a natural antiseptic that kills all of the roaches without killing the house. It does this by penetrating the skin of the roach and killing it. We have found that our clients have been able to go from having roaches in the kitchen or bathroom to having the house clean in about 6 weeks (and not a single roach!).
To make matters more difficult, roaches have developed a resistance to Eucerin. The other problem is that Eucerin is still not approved for use on pets. So if you’re planning a roach infestation, it’s best to avoid the situation altogether.
To solve this problem we have developed a roach killer that kills the roaches without even harming them. It kills the roach by penetrating the skin with a needle and injecting the toxin under their skin. The toxin kills the roach by first attacking its nervous system and then killing the roach by paralyzing its muscles. This particular antidote is no longer available in the United States.
