Cockroaches

The bad news is that if there’s one roach, there’s bound to be many more. Even the sight of just one of these critters can be enough to send anyone running away shrieking.

Cockroaches are an ancient insect, with roots dating back at least 320 million years to the Carboniferous period. There are about 4,600 cockroach species, with about 30 that are associated with human living environments.

As common insects found everywhere in the world, they can tolerate any temperature from tropical heat to the freezing Arctic cold. Tropical cockroaches are larger in size than those that live in temperate environments.

Some species have elaborate social structures, with common shelters, information transfer, kin recognition, and social dependence. While they are distressing when seen in your home or workplace, the vast majority of species actually live in habitats far away from human beings.

Dangers of Cockroaches

The problem with cockroaches is that they can contaminate your food with their feces when they crawl into open containers, leaving behind remnants of dead skin, hair, and empty egg shells. They can also live off virtually anything such as animals, glue, soap, paper, and dead plants.

Their saliva can carry bacteria that causes diseases which gets transferred to your food through regurgitation. A common strain of bacterium called Pseudomonas aeruginosa can cause digestive problems, urinary tract infections, and sepsis.

While rare, cockroaches do bite humans, particularly on fingernails, toenails and other soft parts of the skin, causing wounds. More alarmingly, they can crawl into body orifices when you’re asleep, like through the ear and nose.

As carriers of the bacterium Salmonella, they can also cause food poisoning and typhoid. In an epidemic of food poisoning, the incidence of new cases dropped abruptly after eliminating a cockroach infestation. Not only that, cockroaches are also guilty of causing allergies that trigger reactions like rashes, watery eyes, and sneezing.

Lastly, if you already suffer from asthma, having cockroaches in your house can increase the incidence of an asthma attack. Cockroach allergens create severe complications that can turn life-threatening when inhaled. Those who don’t have asthma to begin with can even develop it simply by inhaling these allergens.

Preventative Measures

Prevent cockroaches from entering your home in the first place by taking some simple measures. Fill in any cracks in the walls, as well as any other potential entry points. Keep surface areas free of food, including tiny crumbs, or drips from a blender. Even the smallest trace of food can become a roach buffet. Wipe down all surfaces each evening.

Any leaks or spills need to be mopped up as soon as possible before cockroaches start gathering around it like a watering hole! Make a habit of wiping faucets and sinks dry after each use.

Keep lids on garbage cans, and make sure all food is properly sealed and stored away. You may also consider getting a roach exterminator who uses insecticide or sprays to keep them away for good.
