These insects are really awful and nasty. You get afraid just by thinking about them, let alone being near them. They move everywhere in the home, bathrooms, kitchens, public spaces and so on.
They even cause allergies ! This is because they get in touch with filth and feces too.
As pestkill.org states, they bring 33 kinds bacteria and 7 of them are human pathogens like e.coli and salmonella. Also, 6 types of parasite worms.
All of these can create new diseases. And the bad part is that those illnesses spread really fast. You can even have severe asthma, gastro problems, salmonella, urinary infections, typhoid, and sepsis too. Their bodies and faces make allergies worse. They can be in cylinder shapes, black and brown too.
The crazy part is that areas of not perfect hygiene have their emerging feces on surfaces for up to few years. So, such areas must be clean spotless.
