Cockroaches are annoying pests that can live in any residence, new or old. They can carry disease, contaminate food and even induce allergic and asthmatic reactions. There are many ways to address the presence of cockroaches, but the approach should be comparable to the severity of the infestation.

If the infestation is severe, a cockroach fogger or cockroach bomb could be an option. A pest control professional should always be called in to administer chemicals, and homeowners should carefully follow the directions and vacate the premises once the fogger has been activated.
