These traits have made the cockroach one of the top household pests across the globe. Because roaches scavenge for food, the surface of their bodies is laden with disease-causing microbes. They are known carriers of bacteria that cause a variety of intestinal disorders such as dysentery, cholera, typhoid fever and diarrhea. Roaches also carry an offensive odor, and some people develop allergic reactions to them.
The best way to control the spread of these pests is cleanliness. Make sure your home, especially the kitchen area, is clean and clutter-free. Proper waste disposal is also a key factor, as cockroach is driven towards the scent of food. Keep your trash bins covered, and your food containers covered as well to avoid contamination.
