Cockroaches are a pest that every home and business owner fears. Not only do they wreck havoc, they pose serious health risks to humans. There are many different species of cockroach that inhabit pretty much every location in the world, so that means an infestation can occur anywhere. Due to the fact that cockroaches thrive in warmer conditions, they are commonly found hiding in homes and other commercial properties. Any sign of a cockroach should be an immediate sign for someone to call a company that specializes in pest control in Ontario.
The amount of research that has surrounded cockroach infestations and human health is astounding. Cockroaches are incredibly damaging to human health in a number of ways. First, cockroaches are a carrier of allergens and they excrete these allergens through feces and saliva. Their body parts are also known to transmit allergens to surfaces that people will come into contact with. These allergens can cause adults and children to have an allergic or asthmatic reaction. Individuals that come into contact with cockroaches can also have allergic skin reactions. Cockroaches are also known to passively transmit parasitic worms, pathogens, and other microbes that can negatively affect health. It is incredibly difficult to find cockroaches until an infestation has already occurred because these nocturnal creatures have a knack for evading light and people.
Since cockroaches are known carriers of disease, it is important that they do not take up residence in your home or commercial property. A professional pest control company in Ontario, such as ICU Pest Control can come in to clean house of cockroaches. Just give us a call to schedule an appointment.
