Crawling insects, such as cockroaches, carry a range of serious illnesses including salmonella, dysentery, gastro-enteritis and typhoid. The risks of contracting an illness are particularly high in homes with more susceptible people such as children, the elderly or those fighting existing illnesses. cockroach droppings have also been linked with increases in eczema and asthma. Whilst the distress and irritation caused by fleas or bed bug bites is also very worrying.
