Threat


Homes infested with Australian cockroaches may pose health threats to occupants. The pests can contaminate household surfaces by spreading droppings and bacteria from decaying material they walk through. This can lead to occupants contracting potentially deadly pathogens such as Escherichia coli (E. coli) and salmonella. Areas infested by Australian cockroaches may also take on musty smells due to the pheromones the insects produce.
