Health Risks of German Cockroaches
First, some good news: German cockroaches aren’t aggressive and don’t bite, nor are they venomous.
However, they are dangerous because of the bacteria and other disease vectors they carry around and can leave behind.
As they crawl through sewers and other filthy places, they can pick up pathogens and allergens and then deposit them when
they go searching for food in your kitchen. Additionally, some people are allergic to cockroaches’ exoskeletons,
which crumble to powder after they shed.
