Why Get Rid of Cockroaches?
While cockroaches rarely bite humans and, unlike termites, do not cause any structural damage to buildings or furniture, cockroaches are still known for spreading diseases. Indeed, cockroaches themselves may not be capable of causing diseases, but their bodies act as carriers for various bacteria and viruses that we might come into contact with if we eat food that has been contaminated by cockroaches. They may also defecate on open food, leaving behind dead skin and even empty egg shells.
Cockroaches, though rare, may also enter your body’s orifices such as your ears and nose while you are sleeping. There have been several cases of small cockroaches invading the human body, making your vital organs susceptible to damage.
Cockroaches may also cause allergies as their bodies contain a wide variety of allergens that may trigger a person’s allergies easily upon contact. People with asthma should also be careful if their house is infested with cockroaches as these creepy crawlies may induce asthma or even cause non-asthmatic people to develop cockroach asthma after inhaling cockroach allergens.
