Cockroach related illnesses in homes
It is important to understand that any kind of pest or rodent infestation can lead to illnesses, cockroach infestation being one of them. Presence of these rodents can be a cause of illnesses that range from food poisoning to even infections.
Cockroaches tend to live in dirty places such as garbage disposal areas, sinks, bathrooms as well as other areas that are mostly contaminated with bacteria. They move around seeking food sources and their movements can cause the infection to be carried around the house or establishments, particularly where food is prepared or available. Their presence is also known to cause allergies in some cases. Their droppings, scent or wings have been found to cause allergic reactions in some instances.
Some of the illnesses caused by cockroaches include Diarrhea, Typhoid. Gastroenteritis, Dysentery and Poliomyelitis that is a viral infection that attacks the nervous system. Allergic reactions vary from coughing, sneezing, wheezing, shortness of breath and even watery eyes.
In some cases, the presence of cockroaches does not cause any health changes, but that does not mean that it should not be taken care of. If you come across a cockroach, chances are there are more to be discovered that you have not come across yet. Another interesting fact is that cockroaches are active during our sleeping hours.
