Contrary to how it was portrayed in the musical comedy film Joe’s Apartment, cockroaches are definitely cringe-worthy in all senses, literally. The mere sight of it makes us flinch. Their distinct stinky smell could make you feel sick, of allergies. And imagine the feeling of its six hairy feet moving on the surface of your skin.
Do you really want to talk about it?
Roachville Not Welcome
The fact is, people wince at the mere presence of cockroaches because it is reasonable to do so. Cockroaches bring diseases, and as soon as you allow it to nestle in your hub, then you’re in for a great challenge of kicking them out lest you want these health threats to lurk around your home.
Roaches and the Spread of Diseases
Pest World said a single cockroach spreads as many as 33 kinds of bacteria, six parasitic worms, and more than seven pathogens that can make you sick. And these are not just your usual germs. Included in the list are species of E. coli and salmonella, both powerful agents of food poisoning.
Roach Bite Could Mean Infestation
I bet you know some who had been bitten by a roach. The hideous and extremely itchy zit the roach left behind will eventually be sore and cause scarring or infection. But that’s not just the bad news. Usually, cockroaches devour refuse. When they start biting you, it indicates that there are thousands of them in your home just hiding under your kitchen sink or your drawers.
Keeping Roaches at Bay
During infestation, a professional pest buster can help you out, and while you may think that their pest control chemicals are the best weapons they have in the fight against a cockroach invasion, it’s actually not, but software. In choosing their business software, pest control companies choose one that allows them to service people of varying schedules.
Still, you may need to hold the fort before they arrive, so follow these rules:
- Keep your whole house free from anything that they can gorge themselves on. You can do this by keeping your countertops clean and your garbage sealed
- Don’t let them feed on moist and water leaks. You can do this by keeping your interior cool and your water pipes free from any leak
Cringe-worthy roaches are not worthy to thrive in your house. Keep these pests at bay for a cleaner, healthier home.
