Knott’s Berry Farm Restaurant Treated for Cockroaches

The restaurant called Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant at Knott’s Berry Farm in California was closed this week after cockroaches were found during a routine inspection. The permit for the establishment was restored Thursday, October 7, 2014 after treatment was completed.

Cockroach feces can cause allergic reactions and trigger serious asthma symptoms in some people. The insects can also carry pathogenic bacteria, including E. coli, Shigella, Cryptosporidium, and Salmonella, along with parasitic worms. They can also spread typhoid and dysentery. They eat fermenting products, glue, soiled clothing, rotting food, hair, leather, and wallpaper.

To control cockroaches, all food should be kept in closed, airtight containers. Any waste should be promptly disposed of. Caulking in closets and cabinets and under the sink can also help. Clean up all spilled food quickly and do not leave dirty dishes out overnight.
