Can cause cockroaches health problems? Yes! Cockroaches can cause many health problems. These creatures can spread 33 types of bacteria, 6 parasitic worms and 7 other kinds of human pathogens. Cockroach allergens are a serious risk to children and elderly adults who are asthmatic patients.

Cockroaches will eat anything including spoiled food and feces. They ingest bacteria which can survive in their digestive system for months and even years. This bacteria is passed to humans when cockroaches vomit and defecate on food which is consumed by humans. Since cockroaches only appear at night, they are not easily spotted. This means a home could have an infestation and not know it could lead to serious problems. Call cockroach control if you see them at your home.  (more…)
