What Should I Know If I’ve Seen Baby Roaches?
If you have seen a baby roach, or think you’ve seen a baby roach, in your kitchen or bathroom, it may be a serious sign of a larger infestation. Making sure that you have correctly identified the roaches so that you can take action fast is priority number one so that you can nip any roach problem in the bud before it gets out of hand. How can you tell if you have seen a baby roach as opposed to some other insect? Read on to learn about baby roach identification and why it is vitally important to get rid of baby roaches, especially if you have found them in your kitchen or bathroom.
Are Baby Roaches Dangerous?
Cockroaches carry many diseases, bacteria and viruses which they can deposit all over your home, and they do this no matter what age they are. Cockroaches can also carry mold, fungi and feces—both their own as well as human feces, or the feces of any other animal. Clearly, this puts your family at direct risk of food poisoning if they have walked across a surface you cleaned the night before, thought was clean and made a sandwich on. But cockroach droppings, as well as their skin and skin remains can become airborne, which can trigger allergies and asthma attacks, sometimes very serious ones.
Is It Worse To Find Baby Roaches?
While both adults and babies carry these same risks and dangers, it is actually worse to find baby cockroaches in your home due to the way cockroaches reproduce. Cockroaches are egg-laying insects, with female cockroaches laying eggs in sacs that contain between 14 and 48 cockroach eggs, depending on the species. Though a female cockroach will live less than a year, in that time she will likely produce between 6 to 30 sets of eggs, meaning that a small roach problem can multiply into a large one very quickly.
Why Does It Matter Where I’ve Found Baby Roaches?
Baby roaches in your kitchen or bathroom (as opposed to your living room or bedroom) is typically a sign that you may have a German cockroach infestation. German cockroaches are the most common roach pest and are attracted to both the moisture of your kitchen and bathroom as well as the food the kitchen can provide. German cockroaches are smaller in size than others you may have seen. They are light brown in color and have two parallel stripes that run down their body. Baby German cockroaches start at 1/8th of an inch long and grown to 1/2 to 5/8 of an inch long as adults.
