Pests carry disease organisms both on the inside and outside of their bodies. Pests like roaches and flies are known to carry an especially large variety of germs, some of which cause serious illness in humans. Pests contaminate kitchen countertops by simply walking across them, as well as by regurgitating food and leaving droppings. This is one common way countertops become contaminated with bacteria, viruses, and parasites.
