Video: How To Protect Against Cockroaches | Terminix


Everyone inherently knows that cockroaches are unclean but they see ants as just these little, benign workers looking for crumbs. Ants can contaminate food and carry disease just as easily, all pests place you at risk. It takes a cockroach only 1/16th of an inch to get into your home. And, once they do get in, ants and cockroaches will make your home their home and, possibly, make you sick. They are very effective at contaminating surfaces with all sorts of unfriendly bacteria. Pests can transmit up to 33 infectious diseases including staph, strep, E. Coli and Salmonella. They, actually, can leave little fecal trails to let other cockroaches know where there's food and water so where there's one, there could be thousands.
