The holidays are well behind us, as are the holiday goodies you indulged in at year’s end. You’ve probably taken the decorations down (no judging if you haven't), but there’s the possibility that not everything from the holidays is gone yet. If cockroaches used that time of year as the perfect opportunity to invade your house, they’re probably still around.
Why Cockroaches May Have Arrived Over the Holidays
When we spend more time baking delicious treats and welcoming packages from our mail carriers and UPS drivers, our chances of letting cockroaches into our homes increases drastically.
Cockroaches are drawn to places with a steady supply of food, and they love nothing more than rummaging around in our garbage cans. They also can get into our homes unnoticed in the following items:
The increase in deliveries during the holidays means cockroaches have more opportunities to get inside.
Why You Should be Concerned About a Cockroach Infestation
If you notice a cockroach or two in your house, it’s cause for alarm. Cockroaches typically move around at night and are good at hiding, so seeing even one could indicate a much greater problem.
Besides the obvious ‘ick factor’ of having cockroaches in your home, there are other reasons to not want them around. They are dirty creatures that carry and transmit many kinds of bacteria, parasitic worms, and pathogens that can make you extremely sick. Their feces and shed body parts are also known to trigger asthma symptoms in some people.
