The Northeast Portland neighborhood of Argay is mostly a residential enclave, replete with small families and charming mid-century homes. These tree-lined streets make up a remarkably sweet community, and keeping it safe from common pest infestation like roaches, is a priority for many residents.
Cockroaches reproduce incredibly fast — a female cockroach lays up to 50 eggs at a time and can lay over 1,000 in a lifetime. An egg can go to full maturity and start reproducing within just 90 days.
It may not be possible to avoid a cockroach getting into your home, but there are certainly ways that you can better handle it if they do get in your home. Once inside your home, roaches get into everything, multiply rapidly, and can survive for several months without food and up to two weeks without water. And although cockroaches can infest the cleanest of kitchens, keeping all food sources cleaned up (scraps of food, grease from the stove, etc.), and keeping a thoroughly clean kitchen can slow down the infestation.
