And don't forget to wash your pet's feeding/water bowls regularly. Frequently offer your pet fresh water a from clean bowl. Do not pour fresh water into a bowl already used by your pet it contains particles of chewed food and saliva which can be a 2 for 1 deal to cockroaches. Yuck! This also is true for all pets that live in your home. For example birds, lizards, gerbils, hamsters or any type of pet. Plus store pet food in sealed containers. Lastly, clean and monitor your pet's eating, sleeping/lounging areas including bedding to keep pests at bay.

Hi Taisha, We are very sorry to hear that you are dealing with a cockroach infestation. We recommend contacting a pest professional promptly to inspect your home, confirm the species, and recommend an effective course of action that will keep you and your family safe and healthy. Try speaking with your landlord to see if they cover professional pest control under the terms of your lease. You can also check with your local Health Department to determine who is responsible for treating the infestation. There are also several things you can do to around the apartment to prevent cockroaches. Keep the kitchen and bathroom free of crumbs and other debris. Vacuum frequently and use a disinfectant to wipe down counters and other food surfaces after meal prep. Take out the trash frequently and keep food sealed in plastic containers.

I have cockroaches bad in my small one bedroom apartment and its me my husband my almost 5yr old and my 2mon old newborn is in the home! I hate it because I'm terrified of bugs period but cockroaches NO! Especially now that I know what I know about them because I have been living in my apartment for 4yrs now and for 2 of those years I have been very sick with intestinal gastric problems really bad to the point where I have been hospitalized many times for it. It causes me so much pain! Uncontrollable vomiting! Dehydration! Its horrible! I pray every day to be healed from it all! :'(

Hi Jennifer, we are sorry to hear about your difficulty with cockroaches. To prevent cockroaches from infesting your new home, we recommend vacuuming often, keeping a clean kitchen, sealing all entrances around utility pipes and ventilating crawl spaces to prevent moisture buildup. If there is evidence of a cockroach infestation, contact a licensed pest professional to inspect and treat the problem. Good luck with your move and new baby!

Cockroaches led me to a huge life change: sleeping as a pregnant women with cockroaches caused skin rash and difficulty of breathe; so we are in the process of moving. Certainly not healthy for a pregnant women and will also not be healthy for a newborn. :(

Hi Nikki, Cockroaches are unlikely to bite humans unless the population becomes too large and food sources are limited. It is possible that you could have a bed bug infestation even though you can’t see them. Bed bugs are rarely visible during the day, out in the open or on the surface of beds or chairs. Some clues that can suggest the presence of bed bugs include finding red, itchy bites upon awakening — especially if the bites line up in a row on the skin. We recommend contacting a licensed pest professional to treat the problem. Good luck!
