Cockroaches can be a serious health hazard. They can carry and transfer disease-causing organisms that cause food poisoning, dysentery, diarrhea, gastroenteritis and more.

In addition to foodborne illness, cockroaches can cause allergies in some people. Cockroach infestations contribute to asthma problems because cockroaches secrete airborne allergens along with their waste products. These allergens are easily inhaled by humans who live in close proximity to the insects. Cockroach excrement is a common source of staphylococcus bacteria which, when ingested, causes food poisoning or diarrhea in some individuals.

Where do roaches like to hide?

The places that cockroaches like to hide vary depending on the species. Species is determined by looking at the pattern of banding on its pronotum, or head shield. German cockroaches tend to live in warm, humid areas and prefer hiding around water sources. Asian cockroaches are more likely to burrow into wood and other cellulose-based materials such as books. They also enjoy basking in sunlight. American cockroaches prefer secluded areas that provide ample moisture and darkness. It’s important not only to eliminate roach populations but also to remove their nesting areas.
