Cockroach Pest Control Alexandria, MN
Cockroaches are not only undesirable pests but a threat to health by consuming food and contaminating the indoor environment.
Cockroaches are known to transfer disease pathogens, such as the various bacteria that produce “food poisoning” in humans, by contaminating food, food preparation surfaces, dishes and eating utensils. The roach’s greatest impact on human health may be its ability to trigger asthma. Cockroach nymphs grow by periodically shedding their “skin”. Pieces of their exoskeletons, along with cockroach feces, serve as antigens that, when inhaled, cause allergic and asthmatic reactions.
