Why they need to go - and why DIY methods don’t work
Because of their unhygienic habits, cockroaches are exposed to a range of dangerous pathogens that humans don’t normally encounter. They can harbour diseases like salmonella, typhoid, cholera and dysentery. They can also trigger asthma attacks.
Even if you literally tread carefully and manage to avoid all direct contact with cockroaches, many of the diseases they carry can be transmitted through their droppings and vomit. Lovely!
All too often, people rely on home remedies like lemon, coffee grounds, and fabric softener which either don’t work at all, or only affect adult cockroaches that are crawling around in the open. Hidden cockroaches and their babies will survive, causing you further issues in the near future.
