Finally, the American cockroach is the largest local species and is reddish-brown with a yellow figure-eight pattern behind its head.

Health Risks Associated With Cockroaches: Protect Your Family

Living with cockroaches inside your home is not beneficial to your health. Although these bugs are not directly dangerous with bites or stings, they are passively harmful with the way they spread bacteria, pathogens, and other sickness-causing organisms. These bugs pick up these disease-causing organisms from the dirty places they live and the nasty things they eat. They then transmit them over countertops, tables, food that’s left out, and all throughout homes.

Another big risk associated with cockroaches is asthma attacks and allergic reactions. Experts attribute these problems to roach droppings and their shed skin. These things break down and act like dust for people with respiratory problems.
