How to Prevent Roaches from Taking Over Your Home

As soon as you find a cockroach, it is crucial to take precautionary measures to remove the current infestation and stop future ones from occurring. Cockroaches have the ability to spread bacteria, parasitic worms, and other kinds of human pathogens. They can pick up germs on their legs and bodies as they crawl through decaying matter or sewage, carrying these into food or onto food surfaces. Germs that cockroaches eat from decaying matter or sewage can remain infective for several weeks longer than if they had been exposed to cleaning agents, rinse water, or just sunlight and air. Medical studies show that cockroach droppings, bodies, and shells can cause allergic reactions and sometimes asthma, especially in children. Keeping your living space clean and dry helps to decrease the chance of cockroaches. Be sure to seal cracks in walls and other areas of your home or business to block the roaches’ entry way.
