What are the Threats/Dangers of Cockroach Infestation

Cockroach infestations are never good news, especially since cockroaches are very small yet vile creatures. They proliferate in urban areas with lots of moisture, which is why cockroach control in places like Singapore is important.

Singapore is a place where it is a likely candidate for cockroach infestations due to the reason aforementioned. A good cockroach control service can help you avoid a cockroach infestation before it even happens.


While cockroaches live in urban areas, they thrive in a very filthy environment. Places where there is spoiled food or lots of waste make it an ideal breeding ground for cockroaches. A cockroach infestation can lead to contamination of food, where they can crawl on your countertops and food preparation areas or even on your food.

Cockroaches have six legs that can carry bacteria, parasitic worms, and even human pathogens.

They also shed their exoskeleton often making it incorporated into the air as dust which could be a possible allergen to people who have allergies.

Rapid proliferation

A female cockroach gives birth to about 300-400 offspring during her lifetime about a year. Multiply this number by the estimated number of cockroaches in your area and you can just imagine how many cockroaches are born on a daily basis.

Resilience of cockroaches

With the ever-growing number of cockroaches, they also have a genetic sturdiness to them. This makes them very hardy to harsh environments and conditions. Their hardiness goes up to the point wherein they can live up to a month without food. It can adapt to harsh conditions by slowing down its heart rate and by holding its breath for more than 30 minutes.


This means that the cockroach is almost immune to any obstacle that comes its way. However, there are ways to outsmart cockroaches, such as having a good cockroach control service that can decrease or even eliminate your chances of having a cockroach infestation.

You can make sure your house is clean to avoid attracting cockroaches but sometimes, this is not enough. Cockroaches are always looking for new places to find food and breed. Cockroach control in Singapore is your best bet of a cockroach-free space.
