Pest and bed bug Bite Treatment
Cockroaches are found mostly in dirty furniture, under the floor, in rubbish and scraps of food, drains and septic tanks. Rats will be present in these areas as well but also in sewer pipes, trees and ceilings. Disease causing germs from these places will accumulate on their bodies. These germs are then transferred to people when the roaches and rats walk around the house especially on food substances and cooking tools.
Pests and bugs will also have germs living inside them and they transfer them to human being through biting or contact with their saliva.
Particles form the droppings of these animals that have gone airborne reduce the quality of air and are a large threat to health. They may result to allergic reactions to even more life threatening conditions.
The fecal matter in rats is usually infected and diseases are transferred to people once the rats defecate on food, food preparation tools or anywhere else where the people can come into contact with it.
Common diseases spread by cockroaches and rats
Rat bite fever, salmonellosis and leptospirosis are caused by rats. Rat bite fever develops as a result of being bitten or scratched by a rat.
