Cockroaches are one of the most difficult pests to get rid of, especially without the help of a professional. If you see one cockroach in your property, it’s likely there are many more hiding nearby. Not only are cockroaches gross, they also are dangerous: They are known to carry a number of bacteria and pathogens that can cause disease, and also have been linked to causing allergies. For those reasons and more, it’s recommended to call a cockroach exterminator in order to keep you and your family safe from roaches year-round.
How dangerous are cockroaches?
It’s a well-known fact that cockroaches are filthy and can contaminate surfaces they come into contact with. But they’re more of a threat than you may realize. A few of the dangers associated with roaches include:
- Cockroaches carry a range of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. This can cause contamination and deteriorate food products.
- Roaches are proven to contribute to allergies. Their droppings, exoskeleton, and saliva release particles into the air that may trigger allergic reactions in some people.
- They are proven or suspected carriers of organisms that cause disease. Roaches have been linked to salmonellosis, cholera, listeriosis, and more, all of which are transmitted indirectly through their droppings or saliva.

Home remedies for cockroaches
Anyone who comes across a roach in their property probably wants to take immediate action to get rid of them. While it’s understandable why someone may want to treat their property for cockroaches on their own through a number of store-bought or all-natural methods, it simply will not work when you’re dealing with an infestation. Cockroaches only need a few weeks to turn into a full-blown infestation, usually right under your nose. While DIY cockroach extermination may appear to work for a day or two, it is never a lasting solution to the problem.
