Cockroaches are better at hiding then you will be at finding them, and their eggs are naturally protected from pesticides.
Cockroaches have been reported to spread at least 33 kinds of bacteria, six kinds of parasitic worms, and at least seven other kinds of human pathogens. They can pick up germs on their legs and bodies as they crawl through decaying matter and then carry these into food or onto food surfaces. Recent medical studies have shown that cockroach allergens cause lots of allergic reactions in inner city children. They were even shown to cause asthma in children. These allergens build up in deposits of droppings, secretions, cast skins, and dead bodies of roaches.
In most cases cockroach infestations a result of poor sanitation practices. Food items that are left out or not cleaned up from floors, trash areas, etc. are a great food source. In multi-unit dwellings, cockroaches can migrate from an infested unit.
