There are a number of cockroaches you can find lurking around your house such as
the German and Oriental cockroach . They all carry many diseases that can harm you. Being able to breed
rapidly and can become resistant to the same poison if given regularly, they are extremely hard to get rid of.
Health and Safety - They carry and spread diseases constantly, whether it's, Salmonella or
gastroenteritis. These diseases are picked up on their legs whilst being around waste food
and drains, then once they walk over your food it is instantly transferred and waiting for you
to eat. They can also cause allergic reactions and increase the severity of asthma.
Damage - Cockroaches will try and break through containers and storage's to get to food as well
as walls, skirting boards, and floor boards.
