Why Cockroaches Are a Big Problem During the Summer Months
The thing about cockroaches that you may not know is that when it is cold and rainy they are hardly active at all, usually hiding or lying dormant. It is only when the weather starts to heat and dry up during the summer months that cockroaches become a major issue around homes. This makes now a prime time for cockroaches and the time when you should be most concerned about a potential infestation.
Dangers of Cockroaches
What is funny is that cockroaches do not pose any immediate threat when you see them crawling across your floor. The only thing compelling you to jump on the nearest chair is simply their appearance and the way they move.
The threats cockroach pose come more in the form of diseases and contamination that they bring into homes. They create these problems when they scavenge across your counters, tabletops, and crawl through and over any food they can find. From the pie left on the counter to the cereal slightly opened in the cabinet, wherever cockroaches can find and eat food they will. When cockroaches are not raiding your kitchen and dining room you can most commonly find them around sewage, trashcans, or in other areas of your home that is designed for containing filth. You can see why this could be problematic.
