May 4, 2018
As a restaurant owner, you work tirelessly to make your business as attractive and profitable as possible. You work hard day and night to find the right menu items, bring in the best employees, and make sure that everything is running smoothly right up until you find a German cockroach in your restaurant's kitchen! All sorts of things go running through your mind about the health dangers and the possibility of a damaged reputation. What if a customer were to see a roach running across the floor? Your business would almost surely be ruined by the bad press.
There are many dangers connected with German cockroaches that every restaurant owner should be aware of. Cockroaches are usually a half of an inch long or less at the adult stage and are often able to find their way into places they deem necessary while foraging for food. The nymphs are so tiny they can crawl through cracks and crevices easily. Roaches are not particular about where they live and can go from the sewer to the table without a problem. For this reason, they are able to carry dangerous bacteria from place to place easily and spread illnesses to customers and employees alike. They are known to cause dysentery, E. coli, cholera, Listeria, Giardia, typhoid fever, gastroenteritis, food poisoning, and severe diarrhea. Cockroaches can also cause allergies in some people through their feces and shed skins. Roaches are able to multiply quickly, and due to their pheromones, their presence may be smelled before seen.
