Even if you only find a few cockroaches in your home, it’s a sure sign there are many more hiding away

Whenever you see a single ant, it means there’s usually many more nearby. Because ants are social insects, you’ll rarely find a single ant invading your house. They are usually in their hundreds, if not thousands.

Whilst ants might not necessarily be a health risk, any home owner will know that they can be very annoying, and any business owner (especially those in hospitality) will know it can damage your image. That’s why it’s imperative to know how to eradicate an ant infestation, as well as prevent them from coming back.

Progressive Pest Management has over 30 years experience dealing with ant infestations. We have helped hundreds of Brisbane residents get rid of ants and all manner of pests.

What dangers do cockroaches pose?

Cockroaches are dangerous pests which carry a number of health hazards. Some of the risks that cockroaches pose in your home include the following;

  1. Inoculation of disease causing bacteria – Roaches often feed on your food, especially that which is cooked and left uncovered. When eating, they regurgitate their saliva and some other digestive fluids which help it in feeding. Recent studies have found that such bacteria can cause urinary infections, sepsis, and digestive problems.
  2. Food poisoning – Cockroaches have been found to cause food poisoning because of their ability to carry bacteria using their legs as well as their saliva. Moreover, roaches have been found to carry the harmful salmonella bacteria which causes typhoid.
  3. Asthma – Cockroaches carry allergens which mix with the fine dust of the house. When people with asthma breathe in these allergens they become sick and, at times, the aftermath can be life threatening.
  4. Contaminating your food – When you leave food uncovered, cockroaches will crawl on it and do all manner of things. Their legs are carrying germs while their saliva is filled with germs. And don’t forget that they defecate on the food! It is for this reason that you must seek the best cockroach exterminator Brisbane to solve your cockroach problem quickly and effectively.
  5. Invading your body – While you are sleeping, cockroaches can crawl on your face and start nibbling your lips especially if you didn’t wipe them after eating. There are some instances when roaches have been reported to have entered people’s noses and ears.
