German Cockroaches are the most common of the cockroaches and can foul food, damage wallpaper and books, eat glue from furniture and produce an unpleasant odor. They may hitchhike in your house on egg cartons, soft drink cartons, sacks of potatoes or onions, used furniture, and even in your pocketbook after eating at our favorite restaurant! Cockroaches crawl through dirty areas and walk around your home tracking in lots of bacteria and germs. These pests can contaminate food with bacterial diseases that result in food poisoning, dysentery, or diarrhea.
