However, poor sanitation/housekeeping is a major factor that leads to infestation. Most often Cockroaches are  brought into a non-infested building by food, by furniture, or clothing that’s infested with live cockroaches and their eggs. Once inside, Cockroaches multiply very quickly. A mature female cockroach creates an “egg case” that holds about 50 eggs. The female cockroach leaves the case in a place that isn’t likely to be disturbed (crevices, briefcases, etc.). The eggs take about 1 month to hatch. Cockroaches become adults in 2 to 4 months. They live about 6 months. Cockroaches die if they go without food or water for 2 weeks.
