The oriental cockroach is black and typically lives in basements. American cockroaches are the largest roaches in New Jersey. These roaches spend most of their time foraging for food in kitchens. A female cockroach can lay hundreds of eggs in its lifetime.

Health Risks of Roaches in your Ocean City Home

Their appearance is actually not the worst thing about roaches. The main problem with these insects is their ability to make people sick. The saliva and other waste left behind by roaches can contain salmonella as well as over 30 other types of bacteria. This bacteria contaminates food and surfaces in the home. In addition to bacteria, Roaches carry many different parasites and pathogens that are harmful to humans. The proteins that they carry are also a health hazard.
