The pros at Nozzle Nolen are here to answer those common questions about roaches, and to provide you with information about how to get rid of these annoying and filthy pests from your Florida home as quickly as possible!
Let’s start with the most frequently asked question about roaches, “Are they dangerous?” Yes, roaches are a very dangerous pest. The reason isn’t because they are venomous or because they cause painful stings, but they are dangerous because they carry a wide variety of harmful bacteria and diseases on their legs and body - diseases and bacteria that can make you and your family quite ill. Adding to their danger level, they also leave behind excrement and shed skins that can trigger asthma attacks in some people, especially young children.
It is important to remember that before roaches were in your home, they were living and crawling through some pretty undesirable things such as garbage, excrement, sewers, and decaying organic matter. Once inside your home, roaches can crawl throughout it contaminating food, food prep areas, utensils, cups, plates, toothbrushes, and more with excrement, bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens - yuck!
Many people believe that roaches only enter dirty, messy, or cluttered homes; but this is false. Cockroaches can enter any home no matter how clean or how dirty it may be. Roaches often squeeze their way into homes through small cracks and crevices found in exterior walls, the foundation, or spaces found around windows and doors while foraging for food and warm shelter. Besides finding their way inside on their own, they can enter your home in packages, bags, and in used furniture and clothing.
Roaches thrive in warm, moist areas and in homes that provide easy access to food. Even the tiniest of crumbs that have fallen behind your stove can feed a cockroach and allow an infestation to thrive. To eliminate a cockroach infestation the best course of action is quick action.
