Cockroaches in Minnesota
Roaches, Part I – Harm Caused by Roaches to Humans
From the diseases they carry and spread, to the difficulty in ridding your home or business of them, to the just plain “icky” factor upon seeing one, Roaches are among the most hated of pests.
Chances are that if you have seen one Roach, you have an infestation which should be handled immediately. Cockroaches are known to carry E. coli, which can result in severe diarrhea, severe anemia, urinary tract infections or even kidney failure. They are also known to carry Salmonella, which can lead to food poisoning, diarrhea, stomach cramps, fever and nausea and/or vomiting. Cockroaches may also sometimes carry such diseases as staphylococcus, streptococcus and even the polio virus. Additionally, if you have a Cockroach infestation, the byproducts of the Roaches, such as Roach saliva, feces and skin are known sources of allergens. These byproducts can also irritate asthma for asthma sufferers.
In addition to spreading disease by sampling food and travelling on flatware in a kitchen or over a countertop where food is served from, Cockroaches will eat almost anything. They will feed on and live in furniture, book bindings, glue, electrical wiring, grease from a grease trap, newspaper, pet food, soap and even clothing. Quite simply, a Cockroach will destroy anything in its path.
