Disease Transmission by Cockroaches

February 3, 2015

There’s no question about cockroaches being repulsive insects no one would be happy to share an apartment with. But more – do you know that cockroaches carry a host of bad diseases transferrable to humans?


Particularly German cockroaches that are more commonly encountered in Glasgow than other cockroach species. Allergens found in cockroach faeces, saliva and body parts can cause allergic reactions or trigger asthma, especially in children. But it doesn’t end here, cockroaches passively carry pathogen bacteria on their bodies that can spread Salmonella, E. coli, parasitic warms and Gastroenteritis, all of it capable to cause severe health problems to you and your family. Some of the symptoms include stomach pain accompanied with cramps and belly tenderness, unpleasant diarrhoea with blood discharge, nausea and vomiting, bacteria reaching blood stream can create life threatening conditions.


This should be serious enough to make you think!  There are some neighbourhoods in Glasgow that are more affected than others. Cockroach hotspots are found throughout Glasgow with focus on Southside of Glasgow and recently also the West End. Situation in Govanhill (Glasgow Southside) has reached the point Glasgow City Council has started offering Govanhill residents cockroach control treatments for free. Unfortunately for the people only a consistent cockroach control leads to their eradication from homes while single treatments by the Council’s pest control are just reducing their numbers meaning a temporary relief only.
