Cockroach Control & Prevention Services
Cockroaches are problematic for so many different reasons, and they are one of the most high-risk pests you could have in your home. Aside from how utterly disgusting they look, they can cause severe allergic reactions and serious illnesses in both humans and animals because of all of the bacteria they carry, not to mention they create an extremely unpleasant odor wherever they go that taints whatever they come into contact with and sticks.
As if that wasn’t enough, they multiply rapidly in good conditions, so your “one or two” could turn into tens in no time at all if the the issue is not dealt with automatically. Anyone who has experienced the horror of a full-on cockroach infestation would definitely agree that there is no underestimating these particularly resilient insects. In fact, a popular joke tells us that in the event of a nuclear war, the cockroaches would be the only creatures to survive…along with Keith Richards.
Problems cockroaches can cause
Cockroaches’ bodies are rather jagged an uneven, with all sorts of nooks and crannies all over the place that are also perfect places for all kinds of bacteria to stow away for an indefinite amount of time before ending up in your home. In fact, experiments conducted on cockroaches have indicated that they are capable of carrying up to 35 different kinds of bacteria on their bodies at one time. This means that the cockroaches infesting your home may be carriers of various exotic types of bacteria they’ve brought from countries far away, and that the you and your family’s immune systems are not equipped to deal with properly.
Cockroaches have been found responsible for transmitting a plethora of diseases such as salmonella, dysentery, gastroenteritis and typhoid, and even polio. The risk is particularly high for children, the elderly or those fighting illnesses to begin with. Cockroach droppings are also known to also cause eczema and childhood asthma attacks that may end up plaguing a person for the rest of his or her life.
