While nothing in life is certain, there is at least one certain thing, nobody wants to walk into their kitchen or bathroom open up a cabinet and come face to face with a bunch of cockroaches scurrying back into the darkness. Yuck!  We all know that we don’t want cockroaches invading our home, but do you really understand the reason why they are so dangerous to have living in your home?  Well, the experts at Witt Pest are here to help you understand just why cockroaches need to be kept out of your home!

In order to understand just how filthy cockroaches are, you first need to understand where cockroaches were living and traveling before they made their way into your home.  Before finding your home, cockroaches were traveling through some very gross things like sewers, garbage, feces, animal carcasses, drains, and pipes.  As you can image, after traveling through those less then desirable locations, cockroaches will be covered in a large variety of dangerous bacteria!  Along with bacteria they have been known to carry and spread parasitic worms and other human pathogens.

Cockroaches prefer to live in the dark, moist areas of homes and can often be found in kitchen drawers, throughout cabinets, underneath sinks, around drains, in basements, and in crawl spaces.  They will contaminate your dishes, utensils, food, and food prep areas with their urine and feces. Again, yuck!  Another main concern with cockroaches is the feces and shed skins that they produce which can trigger allergic reactions that can cause a severe asthma attack, especially in young children.

So now that you understand that it is not just cockroaches that enter your home, but the bacteria and pathogens that they are covered in and the feces and urine that they produce too.  You can see why a cockroach infestation needs to be taken care of as quickly as possible.  And lucky for you the pros at Witt know just how to quickly and safely eliminate cockroaches through our TopCare® Complete program!  Our pros have the training and experience needed to eliminate your current problems with cockroaches no matter how minor or extensive they may be!
