For Pests:

Mosquitoes:
Mosquitoes are also everywhere throughout the world. They use their piercing mouthparts to pierce the skin of their host and draw blood. The host of mosquitoes is mainly vertebrates, such as mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fishes and so on. Mosquitoes are vectors of many diseases. The major transmitted diseases include dengue fever, malaria, yellow fever, Zika virus, filariasis, Japanese encephalitis, West Nile virus and chikungunya fever.

Ants:
Ants are social insects. The harms of ants can be summarized as biting, spreading disease, polluting the environment and damaging building structures. Ants cause direct economic losses through their bites and pollution. And the indirect losses by spreading diseases and endangering human health are far greater than the direct losses. Ant bites often cause red papules. As ants crawl around, they mechanically carry harmful bacteria and viruses that contaminate food, clothing, and household appliances. Ants can also damage building structures by the building of their nests or colonies.

Cockroaches:
Cockroaches are omnivorous insects. Cockroaches eat almost anything they can chew in a variety of environments. Because they crawl around and eat almost anything, they can cause a lot of contamination and spread a variety of pathogens. Cockroaches transmit bacteria or viruses that cause diseases such as cholera, laryngitis, diphtheria, anthrax and tuberculosis. Cockroaches can carry many kinds of worm eggs, such as roundworms, beef tapeworms, pinworms and whipworms, etc. Cockroaches can carry, hold and excrete viruses including Coxsackie and poliovirus. Cockroaches also cause economic losses by biting and contaminating food in factories, markets and homes.
