Ragweed season is upon us, but outdoor pollen may not be the only contribution to allergy symptoms. As the temperature drops a whole host of pests migrate into our homes looking for warmth and shelter. By far one of the most hated of those pests is the cockroach. Everyone is grossed out by them and an estimated 26.1% of the US population is allergic to them. Cockroach allergy can cause all the same symptoms as pollen allergies but studies show they are particularly hard on children with asthma.
Keeping the home clean and free of clutter can help avoid an infestation. Many sites recommend taking steps like cleaning the kitchen floors after every meal (for busy families this may not always be realistic). The best safeguard against cockroach infestations is regular pest control.
