When you imagine the dangerous pests that sometimes make their way in your home (we’re looking at you, wasps, black widows, and termites), cockroaches probably don’t make the top of your list. Are cockroaches dangerous? The answer might surprise you.

Are Cockroaches Dangerous?

Cockroaches are not simply a nuisance pest; they can actually make you very feel sick. This pest is often known for eating your food and taking up residence in your home, but the biggest concern is that millions of people are allergic to cockroaches. For some of those people, contact with a cockroach might not be necessary to experience symptoms. While rare, like with any allergy, exposure to cockroaches may be particularly dangerous for those with asthma. Another health scare courtesy of cockroaches? They can spread bacteria like salmonella.

Now, we do have some good news. While cockroaches are considered omnivores and eat plants and meat, they very rarely bite (and eat) from human flesh. Most observations of interactions with humans are with corpses.
