Don't step on that roach! The health risks of squishing a cockroach

What to do if a cockroach is detected at home?

If you see a cockroach, stepping on it is probably one of the most common reactions. However, it can represent a health danger.

Medical warning

Scientists have started to make dire warnings about the detrimental health effects crushing these bugs has on human beings.

A WHO warning

The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that once crushed, the remains of the cockroach can release some potentially harmful bacteria into the environment.

Be careful while breathing!

These bacteria, which are more common cases than they may seem, can cause asthma attacks or allergies when inhaled.
