More info about the German Cockroach

German cockroaches are known to have a worldwide presence across homes. It isn’t ideal to have a cockroach problem at home, especially that of German cockroaches. These German cockroaches range from tan brown to dark brown in color. There are two distinctive lines that you can see emerging from the back of their head that runs all the way to the back of the cockroach which makes them easily identifiable. Although German cockroaches have wings, they prefer to crawl around rather than fly.

Besides being disgusting and nasty, German cockroaches can cause a lot of trouble and have enough reason for you to keep them out. As timid as they might look, German cockroaches can cause a whole lot of trouble. Let’s take a look at some of the ways that  German cockroaches can affect your health:

Contaminate your food: As stated earlier in this article, German cockroaches eat almost anything and everything. They will eat food that has been leftover in the kitchen sink or even left open in your kitchen. Besides making a meal of your food, they will also walk all over your food, shed their skin, drop their eggs and even leave behind their feces.

Transmit diseases: A certain type of bacteria (Pseudomonas aeruginosa) that is known to cause urinary tract infections and digestive problems multiplies rapidly in the gut of German cockroaches. They regurgitate their saliva while digesting food and use this bacteria to aid in the digestion of food, thus transmitting it to your food and potentially causing you a chance to get infected.

Food poisoning: German cockroaches are also home to the bacteria Salmonella which is known to cause food poisoning and even potentially cause typhoid.

These are only a few of the many reasons why one must make sure that their home and office is regularly visited by a professional pest control service. This will not only help you keep your family members and colleagues healthy, but also spare you from any unwanted surprises that you might come across.
