Pest Control OKC Explains Necessary Cockroach Extermination
Mention cockroaches to anyone and you’ll see an involuntary facial twinge and possible a shudder. Cockroaches are a disgusting pest that anyone who’s ever had an apartment are all too familiar with. They’re unsettling to see for sure, but are they really a threat to you? Cockroaches rarely bite and they’re not poisonous, so why put in the effort or money to get rid of them? The Bug Guy, your local pest control OKC team, is here to tell you why.
The biggest reason you want to get rid of cockroaches as soon as possible is that they can contaminate food with deadly bacteria. One of the cockroach’s best survival tactics is that it can eat an absurd amount of food. Everything from normal food to soap, to feces, to leather, and even hair! Ready to gag, yet?
The problem for you is when the roaches contaminate the food in your pantry by moving from the bathroom to the kitchen and contaminating food with the bacteria from they carried with them. They also shed and defecate on food, spreading bacteria and disease. Furthermore, cockroaches can transfer the Salmonella bacteria.
Cockroaches also carry a range of allergens on their bodies and in their saliva. This can cause sneezing, watery eyes, and even skin rashes. If you or a loved one suffer from Asthma, the allergens on a cockroach’s body can also trigger an Asthma attack.
