There are over 70 detailed species of cockroach in the United States. Fortunately, only a handful are a problem for businesses. But the cockroaches that make themselves a problem, like the Blattella germanica (German cockroaches) and Periplaneta americana (American cockroaches), are a serious problem to no business can ignore. At least 32 species of bacteria have been extracted from cockroaches found in domestic environments. These bacteria go by names like salmonella, staphylococcus, Nocardia, and many more. Roaches are also linked to human pathogens, parasitic worms, and the spread of allergens. No business benefits from having these insects crawling around. Here are three businesses most affected by cockroach infestation in Kansas City.
The list of restaurants in Kansas City that have been closed down by cockroach infestations is never-ending. There are few health violations that will lead to a shut down faster than the presence of cockroaches. And health inspectors are not unsympathetic. They realize the complexities of keeping these mobile and resourceful pests out and are willing to work with businesses to resolve this issue. But, at the end of the day, their job is to protect the public from this health threat, and shutdowns are the inevitable result of not properly addressing this pest issue.
When cockroaches get into a warehouse they are a nightmare. Roaches can establish themselves in wall and ceiling voids where it is extremely difficult to exterminate them. And they get into everything, chewing through cardboard and plastic in search of food. If they find it, they grow their populations quickly and become an even greater threat.
If you own a daycare, we don't have to tell you how fast cockroaches can impact your business. Roaches are not just a health threat for children, they are disgusting bugs that will drive parents to find a new place to care for their children during the day.
Whether your business is large or small and whether you have food or not, cockroaches can still be a threat. These are dirty insects that affect customers and employees when they find their way in--and they always find their way in.
