Cockroaches bacteria stick to their feet
Are cockroaches, ants and flies wandering about your home actually dangerous to our health?
Not really, says Dr Latty and Dr Lessard.
"The main risk for things like cockroaches is the fact that bacteria can stick to their feet, so if a cockroach runs across some raw chicken on the bench and then runs across your salad, then it can move the bacteria from the chicken to the salad," she says.
