Coackroach = Asthma

Cockroaches & Asthma

Nobody likes a cockroach. They are creepy, sneaky, dirty, and have way too many legs. We all wish we didn’t have to come across them scuttling away when we turn the kitchen lights on but we also know that they are a fact of life that are sometimes very hard to get rid of. They can bring dirt and disease into our home so we do our best to keep them away. Did you also know that cockroaches can be a cause or trigger for Asthma sufferers?

There has been numerous studies conducted on the correlation between asthma and cockroaches which shows that some asthma sufferers are susceptible to a reaction from breathing in the excrement & dust from decaying cockroaches.

An asthma attack can be triggered by non-allergic factors such as exercise or the cold, and others are due to an allergic reaction in the bronchial tube caused by things such as cat dander or pollen. Some asthmatics can also have an allergic reaction to cockroaches.
German cockroaches are one of the most common to cause the reaction and are also the most common cockroach to infest a home.

If you are someone with Asthma or you have an asthmatic child you should get your home checked and treated for cockroaches regularly to make sure your family is safe. Sometimes by the time you see one or two there is already a problem and the longer you leave it the harder it becomes to eradicate the infestation.
