A cockroach scurrying across your kitchen countertop is not only annoying, but also puts your health at risk. Cockroaches are notorious for spreading disease in their fecal matter and in other secretions, causing illnesses such as diarrhea, dysentery, asthma, and typhoid fever.
Not only do they defecate everywhere, but cockroaches can also transmit harmful bacteria such as salmonella, staphylococcus, and streptococcus onto food.
If this waste and bacteria are left in the home, you run the risk of becoming sick as a result. Cockroaches are also responsible for releasing allergens in the air which can leave you feeling sick and run down.
While all cockroaches are unwelcome, the ones that nest inside homes are particularly problematic: German cockroaches and brown-banded cockroaches. German cockroaches are difficult to control due to their rapid reproduction rates. Cockroaches breed quickly, are excellent hiders, and can feast off just about anything—all characteristics that lead to high infestation rates in a relatively short amount of time.
Cockroaches often find their way inside through boxes, secondhand kitchen appliances, and open gaps and cracks in the home’s exterior.
One of the most effective ways to prevent cockroaches from coming inside is to properly store food. Clean up crumbs and spills and be sure to regularly wipe down countertops, floors, and the pantry. Avoid leaving dirty dishes in the sink. Exchange cardboard boxes and thin plastic bags for sealed, airtight containers for food storage.
It’s also a good idea to avoid eating food or snacks in areas of the home other than the kitchen. Crumbs can fall onto rugs, furniture, and the floor and go unnoticed, inadvertently attracting cockroaches.
