If you live near an urban area or store food anywhere on your property then your property could be vulnerable to cockroaches. They have been around for a very long time and are known for their ability to adapt and survive. Cockroaches are considered pests and if you see just one there’s a good chance you have more hidden away somewhere.
That’s why, if you’re seeing cockroaches, it’s important to call in an SSG professional who will be able to work with you to find a solution. We will find the source of the infestation, eliminate it, and offer prevention methods to stop the pests from returning.
Why you should get rid of these little devils:
Cockroaches can bring about illnesses such as:
Food poisoning – because they like to eat rotten food and crawl around unsanitary places, they can track germs across the food on your counter and in cabinets and that can cause food poisoning.
Dysentery – a disease that comes from ingesting fecal matter, which cockroaches are more than happy to walk across and then bring onto your food.
Tapeworms – which can cause serious illness and problems with digesting food in humans and other animals.
Roundworm – parasite organisms, such as pinworms, that can be very dangerous to humans and cause illnesses such as trichinosis.
Fungus – cockroach droppings, shed skins and other material can develop fungi that will affect the lungs or eyes. Those with asthma can be very much at risk from fungus left by cockroaches.
Viruses – roaches are known to carry a number of viruses including those as serious as polio.
Allergies – cockroach droppings, skins and saliva are one of the leading causes of allergies for those who live in urban locations.
