It doesn’t matter if they’re found in a home or business; when a cockroach is sighted, an emotion of immediate disgust will follow. Disgust is warranted. Not only do cockroaches look nasty, they can often be transporters of diseases, trigger allergic and or asthmatic conditions in certain people, and are hosts of other serious health hazards.
While cockroaches aren’t often thought of as pleasant, the majority of people do not understand the health hazards that they pose. Roaches leave behind droppings and saliva that have the potential to spread around 33 different types of bacteria; no one wants that risk in their home or business. Furthermore, cockroaches carry proteins that are considered allergens and have the ability to cause severe allergic and asmatic reactions. In addition, cockroaches are hosts of around six parasitic worms and several human pathogens. Sadly, children and elderly can even die from the allergens that cockroaches carry. When it comes to being comfortable with cockroaches in either one’s home or place of business, there should be no question about it; cockroaches pose a serious health risk. On top of it all, cockroaches can cause anxiety; they’re nasty, scary, move quickly, and seem to vanish into thin air making them hard to find.
Thankfully, there are ways that roaches can be prevented. Making sure that tasks like taking out the trash, wiping off the counters, vacuuming, and throwing away old boxes are all steps one can take to ensure that a cockroach infestation does not occur. Cockroaches are nocturnal and thrive in warm, humid areas with lots of food scraps. Therefore, not leaving dishes in the sink overnight, cleaning evaporation pans under appliances, and storing all food scraps away can also help prevent a cockroach infestation.
