Roaches are nocturnal, social (live in groups) and protective, females and nymphs are isolated from foraging. Roaches uses its antennae to generates the olfactory and gustatory sense to their food and way around. Roaches in over-crowded populations are more active.

Roaches have been known to cause deeper health issues that can affect a family. Droppings or body parts of cockroaches have been known to trigger asthma attacks, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, a whopping 23% to 60% of urban residents who have asthma are sensitive to allergens produced by cockroaches.**
