Roaches are not very particular creatures. Their first choice is to search for food in the trash cans, and they will be very happy with what they find there. If they locate an abundance of food in your home or office, their population will begin to thrive. Once there are so many roaches that they are competing with each for what has been thrown away, they begin to expand their culinary choices to include human eyelashes, fingernails and even your hands and feet. After being bitten by a roach, you may experience irritation, but some people have developed infections in this manner.
Some people call the roach a “water bug,” but there are actually separate insects that go by this label. They derive their name for their ability to swim and remain afloat in water, but they also have a reputation for being dangerous. One species is known to spread diseases, and they can cause food poisoning and diarrhea in humans. Furthermore, their droppings provoke allergic reactions and asthma attacks in sensitive individuals.
The last thing that you want is to have roaches or water bugs sharing mealtime with you at your home or visiting you in your break area at work. This makes roach and water bug control essential so that you and your children or your employees are not sharing space with these disease-spreaders. However, this doesn’t have to mean that your home or office will be inundated with harmful pesticides.
