How Do German Roaches Get in Your House?
The smaller size of the German cockroach makes it easy for them to gain access into your home. Any crack, crevice or crease a German cockroach can find on the outside of your home is like an open invitation for them to crawl right inside. It is a great idea to perform an exterior inspection of your home and look for any area that looks like it needs sealing up. This will help in the fight against cockroach infestations. Once German cockroaches gain access into your home they will immediately begin searching for a reliable food source. Any crumbs that are left out or garbage that is over filled is very attractive to the German cockroach. These pests can be found in bathrooms, kitchens, basements and other areas of the home where they can find a reliable water source. A-Tex Pest Management knows exactly where to find these pests and eliminate them permanently from your home.
What Diseases Do German Cockroaches Carry?
Everyone knows that cockroaches are a filthy pest, think about all of the areas that they crawl on, over and through before they come into your home. They frequent trash bins, sewers and even animal feces, picking up all sorts of filth before they waltz into your home. Different forms of food poisoning, dysentery, diarrhea and other forms of illness are carried by German cockroaches and can easily be transmitted to humans. The organisms causing these diseases are carried on the legs and bodies of German cockroaches and are deposited on food and utensils as the cockroaches forage around your home. German cockroach excrement and cast skins also contain a number of allergens that cause allergic reactions for many people.
