Cockroaches are a leading source of indoor allergens that can trigger respiratory allergies. With their global prevalence, cockroaches have become a ubiquitous pest. There are approximately 3,500 different cockroach species worldwide, but five species, including Blattella germanica, Blatta orientalis, Periplaneta americana, Supella longipalpis, and Periplaneta fuliginosa, are particularly known to induce respiratory allergies. Sensitization to these species among asthma patients ranges from 30% to 60% globally.
Blattella germanica, commonly referred to as the German cockroach, is a widespread species found all over the world. Due to its prevalence, B. germanica is often present in the sensitization profiles of patients with respiratory allergies. Sensitization to cockroach allergens can lead to various respiratory symptoms, such as coughing, wheezing, chest tightness, and asthma exacerbations.
