Cockroaches are not only undesirable pests but a threat to human health by consuming our food and contaminating the indoor environment.

Cockroaches and Health Concerns

Cockroaches are known to transfer disease pathogens, such as the various bacteria that produce “food poisoning” in humans, by contaminating food, food preparation surfaces, dishes and eating utensils.

The roach’s greatest impact on human health may be its ability to trigger asthma. Cockroach nymphs grow by periodically shedding their “skin” (the exoskeleton). Fragments of their exoskeletons, along with bits of cockroach feces, serve as antigens (foreign protein) that, when inhaled, cause allergic and asthmatic reactions.

What To Look For

Several species of cockroaches live inside homes and commercial buildings. All are primarily nocturnal and prefer warm, moist places where they can feed on human and pet foods, decaying and fermenting matter, and a variety of other items.

The German cockroach is the most common roach found in kitchens. It is a half-inch long, bronze-colored insect that avoids light and hides in cracks and crevices. Adults and older nymphs have two black stripes on the back just behind the head.

He was not in a rush and took the time to walk the house perimeter with me to get all the information he could.

Brett was great to speak with over the phone. He listened and suggested 2 options. His response time to when he could assist was the very next day. I guess this may depend on his prior commitments and maybe I got very lucky. He was even better when we met.
