Common Cockroach Problems In West Palm Beach
June 23, 2017
Cockroaches are a dangerous insect. In fact, they are probably one of the most dangerous insects to commonly invade homes and businesses; and when they do, they are incredibly problematic. Unfortunately, West Palm Beach is home to three primary species of cockroach: the American cockroach, the German cockroach, and the Oriental cockroach. All three species are known to adversely affect West Palm Beach residents.
When cockroaches invade your home, it may take a while for you to realize that they are there. This is because cockroaches are nocturnal, and they will scamper away quickly as soon as you flick on the light. But, once they have had the time to reproduce and grow their population, it will be impossible to miss them. You may even notice a musty odor in your home that you cannot determine the source of when you have a large infestation. But, no matter what size colony you have living in your home; the risk to the health of your family members is great. Cockroaches carry pathogens on their bodies and spread these germs wherever they walk. In fact, cockroaches are known to carry bacteria that cause salmonella, dysentery, staph infection, and viruses like polio; and these are just a few of the illnesses that they carry on their bodies and in their stomachs. Cockroaches are also known to trigger asthma attacks, especially in the very young and the very old.
If you own a business where cockroaches have invaded, then it is even worse for you. Not only do cockroaches carry and spread all the same illnesses in this setting as they do in any home, they also have the potential of damaging your reputation, increasing the number of health inspections, or causing your doors to be closed – either temporarily or permanently. Even one little cockroach being discovered by one person is enough to start the never-ending saga of bad publicity and frequent health inspector visits. And, in today’s world of social media and instant news, the threat of damage to your reputation is multiplied.
