Serious Diseases Spread By Cockroaches

Cockroach-Borne-Disease-

When you think of cockroaches, images and connotations of dirtiness and poor hygiene come crawling into your mind. But did you also know that cockroaches can make you quite ill.

Cockroaches are persistent and troublesome pests of homes, restaurants, hospitals, warehouses, offices, and other structures with food handling areas. These insects contaminate food and utensils, destroy fabric and paper products, and impart stain and odour to surfaces they contact.

The medical importance of cockroaches is much greater than generally realized as they have been shown to carry diverse pathogenic and non-pathogenic bacterial flora, different protozoa, pathogenic helminths, fungi, and viruses. Like any biting or walking insects, such as bedbugs cockroaches can be very good transporters and thus can participate in spreading moulds. It was reported that 98% of cockroaches found in medical facilities could carry pathogens on their integuments or digestive tracts.

Cockroaches are universally loathed. One of the primary reasons is because they are associated with any place where there are biological waste products such as sewers, septic tanks, garbage cans, chicken houses, and animal cages. Their attraction to human and animal faeces, rotting food, secretions from corpses, sputum, pus, and the like gives them a well-earned “disgust factor” among the general public. All these moist, organic habitats contain staggering amounts of bacteria, protozoa, amoebae, fungi, and other microbial material

Cockroaches are also a major concern due to the fact they produce several very potent allergens that have been linked to the development of asthma. In fact, cockroaches are the number one cause of allergies among inner city children, and 26% of the US population is said to be allergic to cockroaches. Fortunately, research has proven that good cockroach prevention and control can reduce the level of those allergens in infested buildings.

Health risk of cockroachesdf

Cockroaches serve as a vital source for infectious pathogens, playing hosts to a range of different bacteria. Around 32 different species of bacteria can be found on cockroaches infesting domestic areas. Cockroaches are also responsible for spreading six different parasitic worms and more than 7 other pathogens.

Here are the main diseases and bacteria spread by cockroaches:

  • Asthma
  • Salmonella
  • E. Coli

 

Asthma

Compared to the other cockroach diseases on this list, asthma is a lot different. As a pose to transmitting asthma to people, cockroaches trigger asthma

Cockroaches trigger asthma through an allergic reaction. Cockroach allergy was first reported. This was discovered when patients developed skin rashes after cockroaches crawled on their skin. It was fully confirmed in 1959 that cockroaches trigger allergic reactions.

It wasn’t until the 1970’s where these allergies to cockroaches also trigger asthma was discovered. Doctors noticed that patients with cockroach allergies showed signs of asthma attacks. Asthma attacks occur after inhaling allergens release by cockroaches.

It is estimated by the WHO that 300m people worldwide suffer from asthma. It has been discovered that frequent hospital visits of children living in cities suffering from asthma can often be as a result to contact with cockroaches. Around 23-60% of people with Asthma are sensitive to cockroach allergens.

E.Coli

E.Coli (Escherichia Coli) is a bacteria commonly found in the lower intestine of warm-blooded organisms. E.Coli is responsible for cause serious food poisoning in their hosts.

Depending on the severity of the virus, food poisoning caused by E.Coli can be treated simply by replenishing fluids and taking antibiotics. The illness usually last between 5-10 days, with most people will be better in 6-8 days.

Typhoid

Typhoid fever is a life-threatening illness caused by the bacterium Salmonella typhi. It is still common in the developing world, where it affects about 21.5 million persons each year. Most cases in developed countries can be attributed to infections picked up overseas.
The easiest ways to avoid typhoid are by being vaccinated and by avoiding risk food and drinks. Persons with typhoid fever usually have a sustained fever as high 39° to 40° C. They may also feel weak, or have stomach pains, headache, or loss of appetite. In some cases, patients have a rash of flat, rose-colored spots. The only way to know for sure if an illness is typhoid fever is to have samples of stool or blood tested for the presence of Salmonella Typhi. Even if your symptoms seem to be gone, you may still be carrying Salmonella Typhi. If so, the illness could return, or you could pass the disease to other people. In fact, if you work at a job where you handle food or care for small children, you may be barred legally from going back to work until a doctor has determined that you no longer carry any typhoid bacteria.

Signs of infection

You might be wondering “how can I tell if I have caught a cockroach disease?”. There are a few signs which can identify as a cockroach disease.

Cockroach-Borne-Diseases-Symptoms-Extract

However, it’s worth noting that these diseases aren’t specific to cockroaches, and you can catch them from other sources. Identifying if cockroaches are the route of these illnesses is matching the symptoms with signs of cockroaches.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How can cockroaches contaminate things?

You’ve probably already noticed that cockroach diseases are transmitted through these insects contaminating items which we regularly come in contact with. Cockroaches are pretty much buses for bacteria.

Their search for food brings Cockroach-Borne-Diseases-Transmission-Extractthem into areas such as sewers. Sewer roaches pick up a range of bacteria on their feet and skin whilst exploring these dirty underground passages. When a cockroach explores a property after previously dwelling in a sewer, the bacteria they have accumulated and quickly be passed onto anything they come in contact with.

Cockroaches have a pretty wide dietary range. They will eat anything from the ham sandwich in your desk drawer to the feces in your cat’s litter tray. Cockroaches will eat anything!  It is because of this that a whole range of different bacteria and diseases can be found in their stomachs and bladders.

Cockroach droppings

Due to a cockroach harbouring many diseases such as salmonella in their stomachs, cockroach feces can harbour a large sum of harmful bacteria. Unlike us cockroaches don’t have a specific area which they use for their toiletry requirements and will defecate on anything. If you come into contact with anything a contaminate with cockroach excrement there is a strong possibility you could contract whatever disease it is infected with.

Cockroach vomit

Just like cockroach droppings, their vomit also plays host to a range of different diseases. You know by now that cockroaches will eat anything, and will rely heavily on our food supplies in an urban environment. But did you know cockroaches regurgitate digestive fluids as part of their eating process? That means that the tasty ham sandwich in your desk drawer I mentioned earlier could come with a side of cockroach diseases.

Cockroach Urine

Cockroach urine is also responsible for transmitting cockroach diseases. Just like with their droppings, cockroaches will urinate anywhere, and their urine also contains harmful diseases. If you have a large infestation on your hands then there might be a chance that a lot of items might be contaminated with cockroach urine in your property.

How to prevent cockroach diseases

The best way to prevent catching a cockroach disease is to reduce the possibility of coming into contact with these pests. The best way to do this is to take the necessary cockroach prevention procedures. This will reduce the risk of acquiring a cockroach infestation, and eliminate the possibility of cockroaches contaminating your property with diseases.

 

Cockroach prevention

There are a few prevention techniques you can do yourself to help reduce the risk of cockroaches entering your property.

 

Clean

Ensure that all work surfaces, kitchen counters, desks, and floors are clean and free from food debris and liquid spills as well as emptying out bins daily. This limits the food source available for cockroaches, making your property less appealing to them.

Follow proper hand hygiene

Washing your hands regularly, specifically before eating can help eliminate the germs and bacteria spread by cockroaches.

Seal cracks and gaps

Sealing any cracks and gaps in your property will eliminate the entry points cockroaches can use to get into your home.

Bed Bugs..What you need to know

household_bed_bug

This pest profile is dedicated to a small (but very viscous) insect known as the Bed Bug (Cimex lectularius). Here you can learn about their appearance, feeding habits, detection and even answer the question: can bed bugs be transported on clothing? Let’s take a closer look at this pesky home invader

  • Appearance

The adult bed bug is brown (to reddish-brown), oval-shaped, and has a pair of front wings. Luckily, it can’t fly. Microscopic hairs cover its entire body. It can grow to be 4–5 millimeters long and 1.5–3 millimeters wide. A newly hatched bed bug is called a nymph and it appears translucent

  • Feeding Habits

Bed bugs have an appetite for blood. When other species are not available, they would gladly feed on humans. Water vapor in the air is enough for their need of additional moisture. Just like the mosquito, the bed bug is attracted to hosts mainly by carbon dioxide. It loves exposed skin, especially the arms, neck, and face of a sleeping person. Under warm conditions, the adult bed bug will try to feed every five to ten days but it can survive for nearly five months without blood. Under cool conditions, it can last for over a year without feeding.

  • Cause of Infestation

There are a many ways for a dwelling to become bed bug infested. Here are a few examples:

  • Adult bugs and eggs can be brought into a place through another person’s clothes or luggage;
  • Through an infested brought-in item like an article of clothing or furniture;
  • From an infested nearby place if there are routes that allow it such as false ceilings and ducts;
  • People who visit infested areas like homes or means of transport (bugs can be found in the upholstery);
  • Wild animals such as bats can be carriers of bed bugs and similar parasites;

 

  • Detection

Bed bugs are active during the night and act elusive. The peak of activity is usually between 10pm and 6am. This makes their detection somewhat difficult. They prefer to hide in the darkest places you wouldn’t usually check. Bite marks are the obvious symptoms but other signs include fecal matter in the form of small black droppings that might resemble black pepper. If you find some, then probably the nest is somewhere nearby. This parasite doesn’t like to spend too much time on its host. Once done feeding, it will return to a safe place where it won’t be noticed, typically a couch or somewhere near the bedding. These places are usually clustered with adults, young ones, and eggs.

  • Health Effects

A bedbug infestation can lead to several health effects such as allergic symptoms, skin rashes, and even psychological problems. Depending on their number, bed bug bites can lead to a variety of skin problems such as gruesome blisters. About 30% of hosts respond to bites with reddish spots and itching that can last for a few days. Some symptoms might be delayed and can appear several days after the actual bites took place. From psychological point of view, an infestation can cause stress, sleep deprivation and anxiety.

Treatment of the Bites

The most important thing is the host person must be kept from being bitten repeatedly. Once all the biting stops, the symptoms will subside on their own without any treatment in about a week or two. There is no medical evidence that medications improve the condition of the victim. To avoid ongoing bites can be difficult as it requires the complete eradication of all bed bugs that reside at a dwelling.

  • Bed Bug Control

Modern methods of bed bug control include:

  • pesticides
  • isolation
  • heat treatment
  • disposal of contaminated belongings
  • Use of organic and inorganic materials.

The use of pesticides remains the most popular choice but it has its drawbacks. The application of a pesticide may lead to dispersal of the bed bugs which leads to spreading the infestation. Also, some bed bugs have developed a resistance against DDT and pyrethroids which has created the need of advanced chemical approaches. Cyhalothrin is officially listed as the most effective insecticide against bed bugs.

Can Bed Bugs Be Transported on Clothing?

You cant stop the bugs to go to your clothes, but you can stop them from spreading around your home. Here is how:

  • If you have suspicion that you are carrying the pests, go to a room without carpets or other clothing materials (e.g. bathroom)
  • Remove your clothes and put them in plastic bags.
  • They should remain there until the wear is ready to be laundered or frozen
  • With washing machine – at least 2-hour long wash cycle at 45°C. Freezing will take longer (at least a week), but it must be with really low temperatures (-20°C/-30°C)

In Society

Bed bugs have been a known parasite to humans for thousands of years. An infestation of bed bugs has nothing to do with the cleanliness of a dwelling but is still viewed as something shameful. Bed bugs are used in traditional Indian medicine for urinary disorders, alopecia, piles and epilepsy but this practice has no recorded scientific basis. Secretions of bed bugs can promote the growth of some fungi and bacteria. Modern studies suggest that antibacterial components from bed bugs can be effectively used against some human pathogens

What To Do In Case Of Infestation?

If you suspect or know for sure that your dwelling is infested with bed bugs, then you better enlist the help of professionals right away. Do not attempt to deal with the situation on your own as you might not be using the right pesticides. Bed bugs are very intuitive and they will be on the move once they sense you are on to them. That is why you need the help of specialists who know what chemicals will work best against the pesky insects. This is the only way to be sure that the colony will be isolated and effectively eradicated.

How To Avoid Cockroaches When Moving Around

Moving out of a cockroach-infested home and wanting to leave the past behind? Roaches can travel from house to house and to avoid bringing them into your new home, you’ll need a strategy.

Remember every spy film you’ve ever seen? If you want to avoid cockroaches when moving, you can’t miss a downloadsingle detail. Careful, every wrong move has the potential to turn your fresh start into a nightmare on an endless loop!

Before giving thought to your new place, consider the one you’re currently in. Find out where cockroaches hide and pay special attention to these items when moving.

Where Do Cockroaches Hide

You probably have suspicions that cockroaches hide in ceilings, bathrooms and pipes, but aren’t too worried because you don’t plan on taking any of those with you. What about the stuff you are bringing with you? Now, a fair warning to those with weak stomachs, you may wish you’d never heard the answer to “Where do cockroaches hide?”:

  • Furniture

Not only do roaches hide in furniture, they will even lay their eggs in it. This makes it a high risk to consider when thinking how to avoid cockroaches when moving. Apart fromcouches and fabrics, they lay their egg cases (yellow and whitish in colour) on tables, table legs and chairs made of plastic and wood as well.

  • Ovens and Microwaves

We are sorry to report that cockroaches can get into ovens and microwaves. What’s more, these are some of their favourite hiding spots, because imagesthey offer warmth, water and isolation.

 

  • Appliances

Kitchen appliances attract cockroaches more than you’d ever like to know. Roaches hide intoasters, coffee makers,blenders and firdges. This doesn’t necessarily mean they will use these appliances as life-saver boats when you’re moving, but it’s still important to keep a good eye on these.

  • Electronics

Cockroaches hide in computerstelephones and even clocks. You know how we mentioned that roaches like privacy? Well, sometimes warmth is enough.

 

  • Cardboard and Paper

Now, this is a big one. Cardboard boxes and stacks of paper are the perfect place for cockroaches to hide in. They love everything about it – the texture, the smell, even the taste. You need to be very careful when moving piles of magazines, newspapers or documents, in order to avoid cockroaches.

The list goes on to include brooms, mops, picture and mirror frames, book cases. A favourite question for cockroach-victims to ask is “Do cockroaches hide in clothes?“. The truth is roaches love to hide in closets so your clothes should be on the list of things you need to check well before packing.

 

How to Avoid Cockroaches When Moving

To avoid bringing cockroaches to your new home, not only should you not grant them access to enter, but also not give them a reason to. “Bombing” your current place of residence will have the exact opposite effect of what you’d expect. You may hope that it will limit the existing infestation, but instead it will only cause the surviving cockroaches to scatter to new places. Quite possibly places you didn’t even have them before!

Before packing for your move:

  • Inspect your belongings for cockroaches

The items on the “where do cockroaches hide” list should be your highest priority. Take them outside of the apartment or house, inspect them and shake them, including electronics, shoes, book cases, etc.

  • Launder all your clothes, sheets, pillow cases, rugs
  • Wash and dry all cooking utensils, pots and pans
  • Treat dressers and cabinets with an insecticide, after emptying them out

Now, unfortunately, this one is a must. You may want to avoid chemical treatment or think it’s senseless to pay an exterminator to treat the place you won’t even live in. However, if you skip this step, you are taking a huge risk. The tops, bottoms and insides of drawers and dressers are among the most common places for cockroaches to hide and lay eggs in.

Packing:

  • Vacuum everything as you pack it
  • Pack everything into plastic containers, not cardboard boxes

Rule number one to avoid cockroaches when moving is not to pack in used boxes. That includes ones that you already had in your house and those taken from grocery shops. Do yourself a favour and don’t use cardboard boxes – as we mentioned earlier, they are cockroach heaven and actually attract the pests. When moving out of a cockroach-infested property, plastic is your best friend. Pack every kitchen appliance in its own clear plastic bag and put all your belongings in sealed plastic bins with lids. Your computer and all electronics need to go in plastic bags as well. The idea is to seal the infestation as much as possible and not let it spread through to your other items.

Unpacking:

  • Heat infested appliances by leaving them in the sun for a day, wrapped in black plastic bags

Cockroaches die at 50°C (125°F) so for extra security, you could use the sun to your advantage. Leave small appliances in black plastic bags in the hot sun for a day or two, if you have doubts about them.

  • Leave your belongings in a cold storage unit, garage or van if the temperatures are below -17°C (0°F)

“Appliances or furniture can be left in a garage when temperatures are below 0°F for several days. If moving, leaving possessions in a truck or van will do the same thing. “

And that’s how to avoid cockroaches when moving! Finally, when the stress of the moving has passed, relax and enjoy your clean new home!

Have yourself a HEALTHY PEST FREE DAY!!!!!

Bed Bugs And Disease – What You Didn’t Know

Bed Bugs are a growing problem in the Denver area. These tiny brown insects feed on humans and animals alike. However, they are much more than annoying little bugs. Much like mosquitoes, there is plenty of concern that bed bugs can transmit diseases as they bite by transferring blood from person to person. These bugs can transmit deadly parasites and can lead to a number of issues if not promptly addressed. Here are some examples of diseases/conditions that can possibly be spread by these pests.

Chagas Disease

Chagas disease causes a number of different conditions, and depending on the severity, the disease ca5086865109_3be03f2a6c_bn be fatal. It can also damage the heart causing fatal heart disease later in life. Fever and inflammation are common as are enlargement of the liver and spleen. The infected area will also swell. If left untreated, the condition can become chronic and impossible to get rid of. This happens as the bed bug introduced Trypanosoma cruzi, a parasite, through their feces. There is evidence that bed bugs can effectively transmit Chagas disease to live mice which leads to the question: Can bed bugs transmit Chagas to humans? Thankfully, there are no documented cases of bed bug related transmission of Chagas to humans as of yet, but experts have projected that it is still too early to completely rule out the possibility of transmission.

Allergic Reactions

Allergic reactions are common when it comes to bed bug bites. While this isn’t a disease, severe allergic reactions can be just as deadly. Symptoms of an allergic reaction may include rashes, itching and swelling in the bitten area. Severe allergic reactions can lead to fatal anaphylaxis. It is important to speak with your doctor about treatment for any allergic reactions brought on by bed bug bites, and it’s even more important to remove the bed bugs from your home to prevent future problems.

HIV Transmission?

Not yet thankfully. Because bed bugs may bite multiple people or animals over the course of their lifespan, there is always the concern that they will transmit HIV. Bed bugs have tested positive for diseases like hepatitis B, but information is inconclusive about whether or not they can spread the disease to humans. In controlled laboratory settings, there has been no evidence of HIV or Hepatitis B transmission between infected bed bugs. Bed bugs are also known for carrying diseases like MRSA that are unlikely to spread to humans.

The Risk of Disease from Bed Bugs

Whenever bed bugs are found in the home, it is important that they are treated right away. As the colony grows, the potential risk for disease transmission also grows. Diseases can be spread through the saliva t
hat comes in contact with the skin when the bug bites, or through the feces that is left behind. Dealing with the outbreak in a swift manner can reduce your personal risk. Contact a local pest control
company today to help you eliminate the bed bug problem in your home and learn preventative techniques you can use in the home.

Removal

At any rate, it’s safe to say bed bugs have no place in our homes. If you suspect bed bug infestation anywhere in your home, contact a qualified bed bug removal company that uses a combination of heat, vacuuming, and light pesticide to kill bed bug harborages. Heat treatment is the single best method for eradicating bed bugs and number one EPA recommended approach to successfully ending bed bug infestations.

Bed Bugs in Senior Living Centers

Many people know that bed bugs can be commonly found in hotels and college dorms, but few people think of the danger of bed bugs in senior living facilities. Unfortunately, it’s true. Senior care facilities have many similarities to other high-risk areas, such as having lots of people sleeping under the same roof, numerous employees and visitors coming and going every day, and rooms that can turn over for new occupants.

Even the cleanest assisted living facilities can be infected with bed bugs—these pesky creatures are relentless in their pursuit of humans and will attach themselves to people’s clothes and bedding to transport to new locations. The turnover and high numbers of visitors in a senior care center make it a very desirable place for bed bugs.

Perhaps more so than in any other type of living situations, bed bugs can be even more of a nuisance to senior citizens. Bed bug bites can cause the skin to itch, lead to secondary infections, and even have recently been linked to MRSA. Aside from the physical pain, bed bugs also bring the emotional damage of physiological stress due to your home being infected.

bed-bug-feeding-Whitney-Cranshawb

So what can be done to control bed bugs in assisted care facilities? It’s best to start with a proactive approach. Bed bug infestations are growing in frequency, which means it might not be a matter of if, but when they reach the care center. Preventing an attack and being prepared can lessen your chances of bed bugs and make them easier to manage if they do get in.

Each senior living facility should have a plan in place of what to do if bed bugs arrive, which should include things like how to contact residents, where to move them, and how to get rid of the bugs. Bed bugs can be prevented by checking furniture for signs of bugs or carcasses and washing all bedding in hot water on a frequent basis. Keeping the space clean and uncluttered gives bed bugs fewer places to hide and fewer things to feast on. Regularly check sleeping and common areas for bed bugs and report the problem as soon as possible.

If an issue does arise, call a pest control professional right away. Over-the-counter treatments aren’t effective on bed bugs and can make the problem worse. Communicate to residents about your progress in getting rid of the bugs.

Assisted care facilities should be a safe and welcoming place for residents, even during times of stress like bed bug infestation. With a careful prevention plan, you can make things more comfortable for your residents and be prepared for the worst to happen.
