Cockroach Control | The Bronx
An established cockroach infestation is often difficult to control because the insects breed quickly, and do so in difficult to reach places.
Contact Avalon Pest Control if you’re having problems with cockroaches! We operate across all 5 boroughs of New York City.
Cockroaches and Human Health
Cockroaches forage for food and water in homes and buildings such as hospitals, bakeries and restaurant kitchens. As they do so, they sometimes contaminate food, utensils and preparation surfaces.
Cockroaches have been associated with cases of Salmonella food poisoning. They can also carry Staphylococcus, Streptococcus and other bacterial pathogens on their bodies. Because cockroaches are very adaptable, the most effective type of cockroach control includes using several treatment methods at the same time to reduce cockroach populations.
This is a job best left to professional pest controllers!
Cockroaches carry many organisms that can cause food poisoning in humans
