Chinese New Year is around the corner!!

Don’t let cockroaches ruin you and your family’s healthy lifestyle.


Seasonal Greetings from Chemibond Enterprise Sdn Bhd / Bonding Technology Resources Sdn Bhd. 

Chinese New Year is around the corner, it is the time that we celebrate a year of hard work, to have a good rest, and relax with family. Chinese believe that a good start to the year will lead to a lucky and prosperous coming year for business, harvest, and even personal development. 

Traditionally, typical Chinese family will always prepare a scrumptious reunion dinner during Chinese New Year’s Eve for the family members who are away from home that coming back for new year celebration. Other than preparing reunion dinner on the eve, Chinese will start their spring cleaning as well in order to bid farewell to the old and usher in the new which symbolizes cleaning away all the bad luck for the past year and welcoming the great fortune in the coming year. 

A clean environment to live and to prepare food is always a concern for everyone. Cockroaches forever are the unwanted ‘guests’ in the kitchens and restaurants. Cockroaches are always synonymous with dirt, and poor hygiene because it eats a wide range of food, from food spill on the kitchen floor to rotting garbage to fecal matter whereby it indirectly spread a number of foodborne diseases which can result in complications to our health when they eat or crawl over our food.

According to Cochran (1999) research on Cockroaches: their biology, distribution, and control with World Health Organization (WHO), ” Cockroaches are not usually the most important cause of a disease, but like houseflies, they play a supplementary role in the spread of some diseases”. Also, studies such as the research done by Rosenstreich, Eggleston, Kattan, et al. (1997) on cockroach allergy and exposure to cockroach allergen among children with asthma have indicated that cockroaches may also cause allergies that increase the risk of hospitalization due to high cockroach bedroom exposure.

It is believed that the cockroach may be a reservoir for a range of bacteria including salmonella, staphylococcus, and streptococcus. The cockroach can also harbor viruses such as the polio virus (Department of Health & Human Services Australia, 2016).  

Facts about the cockroach that you may not know:

  • They prefer warm conditions found most often in buildings
  • They are mainly active at night and will run away from light
  • They can cause cockroach allergy which ends up in asthma They can survive without food for up to a month


Health risks caused by cockroach:

  • Salmonellosis – the infection caused by Salmonella bacteria. In most cases, the illness lasts four to seven days and requires no treatment.
  • E.Coli – causes serious food poisoning


Tips to avoid food contamination:

  • cover or pack all cook or uncooked food
  • seal all your food in covered jars or containers
  • wash all the kitchenware when needed
  • don’t leave your pet’s food in the bowl
  • keep a lid on your kitchen trash can
  • reduce clutter whereby cockroaches love to hide behind piles of newspapers or boxes as they may eat paper, too
