Do Cockroaches Cause Health Issues?

Yes - cockroaches pose a serious health hazard to humans. They carry disease organisms on their body and can transmit diseases to people, such as salmonella, gastroenteritis and hepatitis.

This risk is even higher when it comes to cockroaches in the kitchen. Food preparation businesses have to be particularly vigilant to prevent cockroaches from coming into contact with food and transmitting diseases to customers.

Cockroaches can also contaminate food surfaces with various droppings as well as affect people with asthma and allergies.
