DID YOU KNOW THAT COCKROACHES SPREAD GERMS?
Cockroaches live on a wide range of food, including rotten garbage, which accumulates various microorganisms along the spines of their legs. Since they typically come from less sanitary places such as bathroom floors, rodent nesting areas, and even sewage their droppings can also be hazardous to your health.
During the day, cockroaches hide in your appliances such as dishwashers, microwave ovens, the back of fridges, or behind cracked tiles. At night, they emerge to scavenge, eating virtually anything ranging from food spills on a kitchen floor to fecal matter. Cockroaches can spread a number of diseases to your family including salmonella and gastroenteritis. Recent studies have indicated cockroaches can also cause allergies.
The hot, humid weather of Arkansas provides ideal conditions for cockroaches to rapidly grow and breed. Once they have gotten inside a structure, cockroaches tend to move into rooms like kitchens, bathrooms, basements, and laundry rooms; they prefer to live in moist, warm places. These pests don’t just cause health concerns; they can also damage your home or office by ruining book bindings, wallpaper, and other items that contain starchy materials that they are drawn to eat. Here is more information on how to avoid an infestation. If these tips and tricks don’t work, it’s time to call in the experts.
