Share Article

Pest Bomb urges homeowners to be aware of risks of increased symptoms and episodes of asthma due to cockroach infestations. Regular pest control service is recommended to avoid the situation. It is especially important if the household includes anyone with asthma due to studies indicating that there is a negative connection.

The consequences of allowing pest control issue to get out of control can be huge; not only to your home through potential structural damage, but to the individuals living in the home. Regular services can go a long way towards preventing pest issues, but consumers need to do their part as well by making their home a place where pests like cockroaches won't flourish.

Pest Bomb (http://www.PestBomb.com) urges homeowners to be aware of warnings regarding the negative connection between cockroaches and asthma. The Environmental Protection Agency lists cockroaches as a "trigger for asthma." The droppings or cockroach body parts themselves can actually trigger asthma. This is due to the fact that allergens are found in the cockroach feces as well as cockroach saliva. The EPA suggests that cockroach infestations probably play a significant role in the prevalence of asthma in inner city areas.

Pest Bomb advises homeowners with asthma concerns to:
1.    Never leave food or garbage out uncovered.
2.    Keep countertops, sinks and floors clean and clear (low clutter).
3.    Clean up after food or liquid spills quickly. Do not leave them for later clean up.
4.    Wash dishes immediately after using them.
5.    Quickly fix any plumbing issues to avoid unnecessary moisture.
6.    Don't keep stacked boxes or piles of newspaper in the home (they are prime hiding places for roaches).
7.    Make sure to store food in airtight containers.
8.    Seal any cracks around cabinetry, etc.
9.    Take trash "out" daily.
10.    Schedule regular pest control services for cockroach removal.
