Orlando, FL, January 20, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- While many believe a cockroach is just a pest, many people do not know the health risks associated with a cockroach contamination in their home or business. Pro-Staff warns Central Florida residents of five health risks the cockroach brings into homes and businesses.
The Contamination of Food: If there is a cockroach problem within a structure and open food, the roach will find it and leave behind its droppings and empty egg shells.
Disease-Causing Bacteria: While the cockroach feeds, it regurgitates its own saliva unto that food, leaving behind germs and a certain bacteria, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which can cause urinary tract infections and even sepsis.
Allergies: The cockroach’s saliva contains hundreds of allergens that can trigger skin rashes, sneezing, and watery eyes among humans.
Asthma: The saliva and droppings of roaches contain hundreds of allergens, as previously mentioned. Their allergens can contribute to an asthma attack among sufferers.
Food Poisoning: Cockroaches can carry the bacteria Salmonella, which can be transferred to foods, causing diarrhea, fever, and cramps.
“If anyone suspects that their home or business has a cockroach infestation, it is imperative to have a professional pest removal company eradicate them as soon as possible,” says Bob Welch, CEO of Pro-Staff. “For the health of the opponents of any structure, the removal of all cockroaches cannot be stressed enough.”
