Why Professional Cockroach Control Is So Important For Cape Cod Homes
Cockroaches make their way inside your Cape Cod home primarily in search of food; however, when the conditions outside change or they’re looking for water, they may still seek refuge on your property. They make their way inside your home either by crawling through the cracks and crevices around doors and windows, through pipes and drains or by hitchhiking on your personal belongings. Once they’ve made it inside your home, cockroaches have a knack for infesting your food and pantry items. And as they do this, they pose a significant health risk.
According to the EPA, roaches carry bacteria that can lead to salmonellosis, streptococcus, and staphylococcus. Additionally, cockroaches carry intestinal diseases that lead to diarrhea and dysentery. Some of the other health risks that cockroaches pose are the irritation of asthma as well as allergies due to their saliva, droppings, and shed body parts. What makes cockroaches even more difficult to deal with is that they tend to hide out of sight from humans, don’t need much to survive, and in the case of German cockroaches, they’re growing immune to many over-the-counter pesticide options.
