Cockroaches are one of the worst pest infestations you can experience as a homeowner. Notorious for being nearly impossible to get rid of, they’re one of the main reasons people seek professional pest control. These pests shouldn’t be ignored, however, because they are capable of spreading harmful diseases to you and your family. Read on to learn more about the dangers of these pests and how Miche Pest Control can help your home be roach-free today!

Types Of Roaches That Invade Homes

There are a few different types of cockroaches that invade homes. Below are some of the most common species:

  • American cockroaches: American cockroaches are the largest species, often exceeding two inches in length. They have reddish-brown bodies and are able to fly; however, they prefer to run.

  • Oriental cockroaches: These roaches are also known as “black beetle cockroaches” or “water bugs.” They have glossy, dark bodies and thrive in moist environments.

  • German cockroaches: German cockroaches have tan or light brown bodies and are typically smaller than the other common local species.

Whatever type of roach you’re dealing with, the professionals at Miche Pest Control have the skills and tools needed to exterminate them in their entirety. Give us a call for help with your infestation today!

Cockroaches Trigger Allergies And Spread Disease

Don’t ignore an infestation. It is so important to get rid of cockroaches because they spread pathogens and can even trigger allergies in some individuals. Here are some of the most common diseases they spread:

  • E. coli infection

  • Salmonellosis

  • Typhoid fever

  • Cholera

  • Gastroenteritis

  • Listeriosis

In addition to spreading bacteria and other pathogens, cockroach saliva, urine, and excrement can also cause allergies and trigger asthma attacks.
