Ever wondered, asthma and allergies can be more likely a trigger that comes from nowhere but inside your home. It’s a terrifying thought, notoriously indestructible vermin that feed off hot, humid misery. It’s that nasty creature that has been lingering around your home, which you have been avoiding since a while. Frightful enough, but they are cockroaches.
They are distinguished by their very long whip-like antennae, flat oval bodies and rapid, jerky gait. They have been around for millions of years, evolving into some of the most adaptable pests on Earth. There are approximately 4,000 living species of cockroaches in the world, which can live almost a month without food and about two weeks without water. No wonder how convenient is your warm home for those creepy species to run an empire behind those walls. Dive deep into the link between cockroaches and asthma.
Cockroaches love warm environment!
Where there is heat, there are cockroaches. Your warm home is an ideal breeding ground for certain pest species of cockroaches. With plenty of food, warmth, water and nesting sites, they can remain active all year round. Northern part of India, especially New Delhi has relatively dry short winters and has a prolonged spell of very hot weather. Roaches often get accustomed to master their territory in such cozy environment. This ability to quickly adapt to new conditions and extensive migration have no doubt lead to great success for cockroaches.
Asthma and Allergy foundation
Cockroaches carry a lot of diseases. The saliva, feces and shedding body parts of cockroaches can trigger both asthma and allergies. These allergens act like dust mites, aggravating symptoms when they are kicked up in the air. These bugs also smell. They emit an awful odor from fluid emitting scent glands which they also regurgitate while eating. A cockroach’s exoskeleton can aggravate asthma symptoms by going into airborne when crushed or stepped on. They contaminate surfaces, utensils, and even food with indirect transmission with carrying all of these bacteria. They are also known carriers of typhoid, dysentery, and cholera.
Not everyone has allergies and asthma. But anyone suffering from wheezing, itchy eyes and nose, or a scratchy throat should visit an allergist or immunologist to determine what’s causing the symptoms. It’s not normal to feel that way, even in the middle of spring.
Get control over cockroach infestation
Cockroaches are nocturnal insects. They prefer to live and feed in the dark, so a cockroach seen during the day is a possible sign of infestation. A female cockroach usually carries 40 eggs in a sack on top of its back. A female cockroach can produce nine to ten egg sacks in their life, but some have been known to produce as many as 90. They are better at hiding than you are at finding them, and their eggs are naturally protected from many over-the-counter insecticides. Without special equipment – pest control methods, materials and know-how, cockroach control can be a losing battle.
