There are a few species of cockroaches (Pennsylvaniacockroaches and German cockroaches) in Quebec
There are a few species of cockroaches (Pennsylvania cockroaches and German cockroaches) in Quebec. In Montreal, the most common are German cockroaches , which are oval in shape and caramel in color. They have antennae and six legs that allow them to move very quickly, as well as wings that allow them to soar when they jump.
It is very important to call an exterminator when you notice a possible infestation of cockroaches in your home, because they reproduce very quickly. The female lays an ootheca, a brown-beige capsule containing her eggs. She wears the ootheca attached to her abdomen for 28 days and places it in a shelter 24 to 48 hours before the outbreak. This egg cell contains an average of 30 to 40 eggs. At room temperature, the female will produce one egg shell about every six weeks and lay five during her lifetime.
A single mating may be enough to fertilize all the eggs produced by the female. The majority of larvae hatch within 24 hours of the ootheca deposit. Young cockroaches quickly seek food. Depending on the species, the larvae undergo between four and fifteen molts before becoming adults.
The lifespan of an adult cockroach varies among species and depending on environmental conditions such as temperature. For example, the German cockroach can live more than 200 days!
These insects are omnivorous. They can eat decaying plant matter as much as dead animals or table scraps. The toughest insects, cockroaches adapt to any type of environment and can live up to a month without feeding or drinking.
Cockroaches can also survive with limited access to food by munching on paper, tissues, soap or glue. This menu allows them to reproduce and reach an adult size without problem.
Mostly active at night
Mainly active at night, cockroaches hide near sinks, behind stoves and refrigerators, as well as in drains and cracks. Be careful, they love grocery bags and boxes. They can find something to eat there, in addition to being able to hide easily!
All cockroach species are pests and leave a foul odor on soiled food. Their bad reputation is mainly related to the smell they give off, the taste they give to the food they eat and the droppings they leave there. During a severe infestation, they even leave a strong smell of mold on objects. Professional cockroach exterminators can help you get rid of them.
Suspected of transmitting diseases to humans
Cockroaches are a health hazard since they can transmit diseases to humans. In addition to being a nuisance, they tend to frequent garbage cans, sewers and places with other diseases where germs can attach to their bodies. They therefore present a risk of transmission of germs and bacteria to foodstuffs, surfaces and objects (utensils, plates, etc.) with which they come into contact.
Among the pathogenic bacteria that cockroaches can carry are salmonella, shigella, E. coli, streptococcus (responsible for pneumonia), several types of parasitic worms and even viruses such as polio. They can also transmit different forms of gastroenteritis (food poisoning, dysentery, diarrhea and other illnesses). In addition, their feces and exuvia can cause allergies and respiratory problems.
Cockroaches are also a real problem for any type of building. First, because of their adaptability, then because they reproduce at a phenomenal speed (dozens of eggs for a single female). In addition to being very invasive, they can pose serious health risks. It is important to quickly contact a cockroach exterminator as soon as you become aware of the presence of this pest. You may only notice the smell, as cockroaches move quickly and especially at night. If you walk into a kitchen in the middle of the night and turn on a flashlight, you’ll see them running away.
