In San Diego County, one of the most prevalent types of pests is cockroaches. These pests are not unique to San Diego County – they are, unfortunately, active in most areas throughout the United States. There is nowhere you can go in San Diego County to completely avoid the possibility of cockroaches. You can, however, take steps to eradicate cockroaches from your own home and keep them out. It is important to get professional help protecting your property from cockroaches because these pests can spread disease to humans, cause problems for people with breathing difficulties, and are notoriously difficult to eradicate.
Cockroaches can spread disease to humans
Most people can agree that cockroaches are gross and not welcomed inside of a home. Unfortunately, cockroaches are more than just gross. They can actually be dangerous. These pests have the ability to spread disease to humans. Roaches crawl around in sewers, trashcans, and damp places on a regular basis. They can pick up diseases as they travel through those areas. When cockroaches infest your home, they can crawl on surfaces – like your kitchen counter – and get into your food supply. When you use those surfaces or eat food that has been infested, you are at risk for diseases such as Salmonella typhimurium, Entamoeba histolytica, and the poliomyelitis virus. Getting professional help with cockroach control and prevention is something you can do to protect the health of your family.
Cockroaches can cause problems for people with breathing difficulties
Cockroaches can also cause problems for people with breathing difficulties and allergies. Roaches are considered an allergen and asthma trigger for people. Live roaches, cockroach carcasses, and roach excrement can all cause issues for people with breathing problems. Cockroach control and prevention are both essential if you or a loved one in your San Diego County home has asthma or allergies.

If you try and address a cockroach infestation on your own – and fail to eliminate all of the pests – the infestation will simply grow back.
