Cockroaches are one of the most prominent pests found in buildings where humans live and work. Cockroaches can transmit serious diseases like typhoid fever and cholera. The germs responsible for these diseases are picked up by cockroaches from filth and carried to the food you eat.
Cockroaches also transmit dysentery, the inflammation of the mucous membrane of the large intestine caused by bacterial or viral infection. This disease is characterized by abdominal pain, cramps, diarrhea, and bloody stool, mucus or pus in the stools. If the patient doesn’t get help immediately, he or she may die from dehydration or other complications.
