When allergies start getting worse and you can’t identify why, there’s one possibility that you haven’t considered. 

Pests in your home. 

Pests not only look unsightly and cause damage to your home, but they also bring many health risks with them. It turns out, inflaming allergies might be one of those risks. Yet, it can still be difficult to find out if they’re the cause of your problems. To help you figure it out, we’ll show you a few pests that have been known to cause allergy issues. 


Cockroaches are in nearly every building across the United States (at least those without pest control). The National Pest Management Association has estimated that 63 percent of all homes in the country have cockroach allergens in them. 

These pests have been known to cause allergic reactions and even worsen many asthma symptoms. Their droppings, saliva, shedded skin, and deposited body parts can all worsen allergies.

Dust Mites

These little pests are impossible to see with the naked eye, but they can still have heavy impacts on your health. Those impacts are present in around 20 million residents in the United States. 

Dust mites spread allergens through the waste that they produce as it combines with cockroach dust and mold. They enjoy feeding on dead skin cells and can typically be found where people are present. 


You can find allergens from these rodents in many American homes. They typically affect people in inner-city housing developments or densely populated areas. 

Rodents will cause allergies through pheromones and bacteria in their droppings, urine, saliva,  and skin. If you find droppings near your kitchen or main food supply then you likely have a rodent infestation.

If you’re suffering from allergies and you have reason to believe these pests or some like them could be responsible, then don’t wait to get them out of your home.
