Cockroaches are #1 on the pest control offender’s list. These nocturnal pests live by day in the cracks of walls and floorboards and by night scavenge under your refrigerator, along your stove and in the garbage disposal for morsels to enjoy whilst spreading germs and bacteria. They love moist heat and thrive in sewers, damp sub-flooring and garbage areas. Even the cleanest of homes can have them as they love to sneak in with the mail or in packages. Though there are things to do to help prevent them, an infestation is a pest control nightmare and best left to professionals. Cockroaches and Your Health Cockroaches are not the cleanest guests to have in your home. There is a rumour that they are actually clean insects, which is true when it comes to where they prefer to live. However, they inhabit dirty places such as sewers and drains then march dirty feet across counters and other places where food is prepared. They carry salmonella, parasites and bacteria that can infect your family. Cockroach allergens have been known to trigger deadly asthma attacks in adults and children unless a pest control programme is implemented. Cockroaches grow and moult their old skin to grow a larger new skin. Their skin pieces are combined with their faeces, making a hazardous dust harmful to some when inhaled.
