City Officials in Indianapolis Have Been Struggling To Eradicate A Neighborhood-Wide Roach Infestation For Months

Having a cockroach infestation is not only stressful, it is also horrifying…unless, of course, you think that cockroaches make for loveable pets. However, there are worse types of insect infestations. For example, a bed bug infestation can result in physical injuries, and eradicating these bugs from homes can be time consuming, inconvenient and sometimes unsuccessful. Then there are termite infestations. These infestations can go unnoticed for years and can result in thousands of dollars in damages. In some extreme cases, homes can be demolished as a result of irreparable termite damages. On the other hand, cockroaches do not typically bite humans, nor do they cause structural damages. Also, due to their relatively large size, cockroach infestations are usually noticed relatively quickly. Although, on the surface, it would seem that many types of insect infestations are more undesirable than cockroach infestations, there is something about a houseful of roaches that many people cannot tolerate. There are very few people in the world that know this better than the residents of one neighborhood located on the Northside of Alliance, Ohio. Due to the careless and unsanitary habits of two residents in the area, a cockroach infestation within their homes has spread to several nearby houses. Surprisingly, the resulting infestations have proven difficult to eradicate, as this problem has persisted for a period of two months.40061996 - dead cockroaches on wooden table

For quite some time now, literally thousands of cockroaches have been skittering out to two homes located on the 400 block of West Wayne St. Back in July, a resident living in the area reported a long-running cockroach infestation that had been noticeable in the home located at 474 West Wayne St. A short time later, a house located a few doors down also become a haven for cockroaches. Now the cockroaches have infested multiple houses in the area, and the insects have even managed to travel to the end of the block. The city health commissioner is currently working with the home’s owners as well as pest control authorities in order to get the enormous infestation under control. According to the commissioner, by the time he received the complaint, the infestation was already a neighborhood-wide problem. The cockroaches, which can be seen in people’s yards, clearly number in the thousands.

If you were one of the affected residents living on Wayne St., would you consider a lawsuit against the owners of the two roach-infested houses?

A Cockroach Invasion In One Small Town Is Being Blamed On Unusually Hot Weather

Following the cold winter season, many people welcome the summer heat. People were meant to enjoy the great outdoors, so naturally, the pleasant summertime weather allows people to satisfy their need to be amongst nature. However, “nature” is not all fun and games, as there exists many creepy-crawlies lurking about within grass, bushes, trees and even inside homes. Many people will happily tolerate a few insects here and there if it means enjoying the great outdoors, but most people have a hard time exercising tolerance toward cockroaches. Cockroaches happen to be one type of insect that people are not willing to put up with in the least, which can be a problem, as cockroaches are among the most abundant of insects. Just ask the residents of Carmichael, California how they feel about cockroaches. They will tell you all about the terrifying cockroach invasion that has been occurring within their town for weeks.

The residents of Carmichael have been falling victim to cockroaches that are infiltrating people’s homes. One resident, Toby Rodriguez, took a local news team around his home in order to point out the many cockroach corpses that had been lying about. One cockroach was lying a few feet from his front door. Apparently, the roach was attempting to make an escape before it died. Two other residents, the Guillermo’s, claimed to have found cockroaches all over their home on a daily basis. They have found cockroaches within their home, garage, back and front yard, and around their fence posts. Guillermo and his wife are amazed at the number of cockroaches that they have been finding, and they are puzzled over the origin of the roaches. “Certainly, the roaches cannot just be gravitating to our home”, said Guillermo. Of course he is correct, as the Sacramento Sewer District has been receiving numerous call about unwanted cockroaches. One roach expert has tried to explain the cockroach invasion by referring to the area’s climate. Roaches are able to survive just fine until the temperature reaches 95 degrees. When the temperature reaches this point, roaches will inevitably look for shelter indoors. The current heat wave in the Sacramento area is the likely cause of the roach invasions.
