Katsaridaphobia…A.K.A…Cockroach Phobia

There are many types of phobias that humans live with on a daily basis.  Some phobias may seem silly to some folks, but for those who suffer through the effects of the phobia, the experiences can be traumatic.  Katsaridaphobia is the diagnosed fear of cockroaches.  This fear can cause high levels of anxiety which can lead to excessive cleaning and misuse of pesticides to kill the nasty pests.

There are many people who fear cockroaches, and for good reason.  They are creepy insects that typically come out of hiding in the darkness of night.  Flick a light on in a cockroach infested and you will surely be freaked out when you see the creature’s race for a place to hide.  These pests multiply at an alarming pace so getting an infestation under control can be quite difficult unless you call a licensed pest control professional.

Some people are fearful of cockroaches because they know that they are scurrying around the home.  Some fear them because they know they are eating their food.  Some fear cockroaches because they know that they spread terrible diseases that can be transmitted to humans.  Some people fear cockroaches because they are stealthy and can live in adverse conditions, even without their head…for a period of time at least.

Although dealing with any life altering phobia is a good thing, dealing with cockroaches in your day-to-day life does not need to happen if you hire a Monmouth County, NJ pest control professional.  Allison Pest Control will be able to properly identify what type of cockroach is infesting your home or business so that complete elimination of the pests can occur.
