- Rodent Droppings Can Cause Illness: Rodents are already dangerous for a property owner, as they tend to chew electrical wiring, which can cause a greater risk of fire. On top of that, their droppings can cause allergic reactions and spread potentially dangerous illnesses like leptospirosis.
- Many Children Are Allergic To Cockroaches: Approximately 20% of children are sensitive to the particular allergens carried by cockroaches. These allergens can significantly increase the severity of asthma symptoms. Additionally, cockroach control experts know that they frequently carry the salmonella and E. coli bacteria.
- Flies Can Spread Bacteria: Even flies can be a health issue. They pick up bacteria from the many different surfaces they touch and spread those germs quickly throughout an area. Because they are drawn to food, homeowners with a fly problem often consume disease-causing bacteria unknowingly.
