Their mere presence is potentially dangerous to humans since they can easily transmit bacteria and spread diseases. And, if your customers see them your business is dead!

Beside from the hazards that are posted above, cockroaches have the ability to emit airborne pheromones for swarming and mating. These chemical trails transmit bacteria, which other cockroaches can follow. A single cockroach can lay up to 300 eggs and a few cockroaches can easily multiply to thousands within months, which makes it a big challenge in controlling them. Cockroaches also have the ability to develop a quick resistance to poisons, thus doing your own roach management especially around your business property is not a good idea. The potential harm that these cockroaches can do to your business is great and needs prompt solution as soon as they are seen.
