Cockroaches are mostly tropical insects. Those that are found in colder climates, such as Winnipeg, are those that enter homes and buildings to escape colder weather. Cockroaches can become a serious pest. Fortunately, cockroaches do not cause structural damage. Cockroaches are considered to be a health risk by spreading bacteria and contaminating food, potentially causing illness. Cockroach feces, saliva, bodies and casts can also trigger allergic responses and / or worsen underlying respiratory conditions in susceptible individuals.
