Effective Colton Cockroach Solutions
Cockroaches are not exactly what we consider “clean” pests. As a matter of fact, they do actually inflict significant health risks if untreated for an extended period. One of the biggest health threats of cockroaches come from the cast skin and fecal matter that these critters leave behind in our homes. In addition cockroaches tend to live in dirty spaces like sewers, drains, pipes and bathrooms. As they crawl around, their legs and feet pick up germs from sewer garbage and decaying matter. They will then spread these to areas they encounter like the food surfaces in your kitchen and even your pets food and/or water bowl.
