  • 63% of American homes contain allergens from cockroaches. That number increases to as many as 78% to 98% of homes in urban areas.
  • Mice also spread potent asthma triggers, found in 82% of homes.
  • Nearly 25 million Americans suffer from asthma.
  • 60% of asthma cases are “allergic-asthma.”
  • Asthma is the most common chronic disease among children.

These staggering statistics demonstrate how hidden allergens from common household pests can put us at risk for serious (and potentially life-threatening) diseases.
