German Cockroaches (Blattella Germanica)
The German Cockroach reproduces faster than any other residential cockroach. Different forms of gastroenteritis (Food Poisoning, Dysentery, Diarrhea and other illnesses) appear to be the principal diseases transmitted by German Cockroaches. The organisms causing these diseases are carried on the legs and bodies of cockroaches and are deposited on food and utensils as the cockroaches forage. Cockroach excrement and cast skins also contain a number of allergens to which many people exhibit allergic responses, such as skin rashes, watery eyes and sneezing, congestion of nasal passages and asthma.
