Big Bad Roach

Yuck! Cockroaches like Big Bad Roach are another villain that can trigger asthma symptoms. Big Bad Roach got to be so big because he LOVES food. These bugs are really tricky, because they like to hide where they can’t be seen But kids and grown-ups can still breathe in fumes from roach and dust mite poop (remember – everything that eats also poops!) and that can be bad news if you have asthma.

Roaches won’t feel as welcome in your home if you wrap leftover food tightly and put it away in your refrigerator or kitchen cabinets. Sweeping up crumbs from your kitchen countertops, cabinets and floors also helps.
