Cockroaches are a problem for your home or business

Cockroaches are pests for a number of reasons. They can be quite alarming to people, including customers and carry a number of diseases that can potentially be serious for humans.

Cockroaches in your place of business can ruin your reputation and they are notoriously considered a sign of an unclean space. However, there are other concerns that make cockroaches pests that must be dealt with by professionals.

Cockroaches have been shown to carry disease-causing microorganisms on their bodies. Microbes found on cockroach bodies include several types of bacteria, worms, fungi and viruses. While cockroaches have never been linked to the direct transmission of any disease, they can contaminate clean surfaces with disease-causing microbes. Cockroaches can bring about illnesses such as:

  • Food poisoning is caused when cockroaches eat rotten food and crawl around unsanitary places, tracking germs across the food on your counter and in your cabinets.
  • Dysentery comes from cockroaches walking across fecal matter and then bringing it onto your food.
  • Tapeworms can cause serious illness and problems with digesting food in humans and other animals.
  • Roundworms, which are parasite organisms, can be very dangerous to humans and cause illnesses such as trichinosis.
  • Cockroaches can leave behind fungus from their droppings, skin shedding and other material that will affect the lungs or eyes. Those with asthma can be very much at risk from fungus left by cockroaches.
  • Cockroaches are known to carry a number of viruses including those as serious as polio.
  • Cockroach droppings, skins and saliva are one of the leading causes of allergies for those who live in urban locations.
