Why Cockroaches Are A Problem Around Homes
When you think about cockroaches, what problems do you think they cause? If the only problem you can see is that they are scary to look at, let us shed some light on them for you.
The biggest problem cockroaches pose is that they can and commonly do spread diseases. Some of the sicknesses they have been known to transmit come from the simple fact that they spend the majority of their time on either filth or scavenging on the food in your home. It only takes a few footsteps across your leftovers for this food to become contaminated. Some of the common diseases cockroaches have been known to spread include, typhoid, poliomyelitis, dysentery, and Salmonella.
