How Cockroaches Damage Your Health

A cockroach infestation can truly be a nightmare for families and business owners. When these pests take over a home or business, they can be incredibly difficult to manage and even harder to exterminate once and for all. On top of the obvious issues resulting from a cockroach infestation, they actually do a lot more harm than most people realize. Roaches can cause MAJOR health issues putting you, your family, your employees, or your customers at risk. Here are some of the ways cockroaches do more damage to your health than you think:


1. They Cause Asthma & Allergic Reactions
If you suffer from asthma or allergies, then you know it can often be impossible to identify the source of what triggered your reaction. Cockroach feces and saliva are notorious for causing asthma attacks and allergic reactions, especially with infants, children, and the elderly. Many young people will get irreversible health issues as a result of a prolonged cockroach infestation.

2. E Coli & Salmonella
Roaches can quickly contaminate food and beverages in your home or business with saliva and excrement. If ingested, this can lead to gastroenteritis and typhoid fever common with salmonella. This can also cause E Coli related food poisoning resulting in major stomach and digestion issues.


3. Cross Contamination
Most of time people come in contact with items and areas infected by cockroaches, they don’t notice it. They can then touch their eyes, mouth, and face which then contaminates them and potential others they come in contact with.

Cockroach Treatment

Roach infestations are a huge health risk for your family, employees, or customers, especially children and the elderly.

In addition, this treatment will also work for a few other pests such as any spiders, ants, crickets, silverfish, or moths that may be on your property. The service also includes a 30 day control period.
