Cockroaches, these annoying brown and black insects may look like harmless pests just searching for food; however they can spread a range of diseases. These tiny creatures belong to the Kingdom Animalia, Phylum Arthropoda, Class Insecta and Order Blattaria.
Cockroaches are quite common around the world. 1943 was when cockroaches were first noted to cause allergic skin reactions, when crawling onto the skin of humans. Skin irritations aren’t the only heath issues that these nuisances can cause, there have been numerous studies linking cockroaches to asthma attacks.
Asthma can be a serious life threatening condition, occurring when a person’s airways become inflamed and narrow, causing a struggle of breath. In 2007, Australia reportedly had around 10% of the population suffering from this extremely common disease.
Although there is no single cure for asthma, it can be controlled by taking medication and avoiding environmental situations where your asthma may exacerbate.
The debris from decomposing cockroaches is the perfect concoction to bring on serious asthma problems for those suffering from the condition. The size of a cockroach is able to be lifted into the air, while entering the bronchial tubes when you breathe. This causes an allergic reaction, otherwise known as asthma.
It’s incredibly important; especially for those who are asthmatic suffers, to hire an experienced exterminator to do a thorough inspection of your home. If cockroaches or any other pests are found, than the right steps will be taken to eliminate them once and for all.
