Cockroaches We put an end to cockroach pests

I get cockroaches from the corners

We all know cockroaches and we also know one of the most common sayings that surround this insect with glamor and that is that it is said that they would survive the atomic bomb. Currently we know more than 4500 species of cockroaches, where we can find different types of size and even different ways of feeding, although most are omnivores.

Regarding reproduction, it is known that the female lays eggs in an ootheca (egg mass). In our case, the Germanic cockroach lays approximately 30-40 eggs, which indicates the proliferation power and the headache that this entails. To such an extent that in 2015 a total of 24,000 calls were answered in the Balearic Islands to deal with a cockroach problem.
