What are they?
The Oriental and German cockroaches are the most common species in the UK. The Oriental Cockroach grows to about 25mm. The German cockroach is the smaller of the two at about 15mm and prefers a hotter more humid environment. Both can carry many germs and can be the cause of dysentery and gastro-enteritis. Germs are spread from the cockroaches’ body and the droppings that they leave around your home or business. Cockroaches will feed on almost anything including faecal matter. Germs can be spread when the cockroach comes into contact with foodstuffs and kitchen utensils.

How do they live?
Cockroaches are nocturnal and will hide during the day in cracks and crevices around drains, sinks, cookers and in ducting.

The mated female will lay (Oriental) or carry (German) the "purses", containing the eggs. When the eggs hatch the nymphs are adult cockroaches in miniature and have to go through several moults before emerging as a sexually mature adult. They are gregarious, and can produce large infestations.

Pest Prevention
Good hygiene is key to preventing cockroach infestations. By denying them a food source and removing dirt and debris you will make the area less habitable and reduce the chances of a large infestation occurring. We use professional cockroach control products with great care to ensure public safety when controlling infestations.

The Environmental Health officers can take serious action against any commercial food business that is found to be infested by cockroaches, and the damage caused to one's reputation could be irreversible.

Cockroaches should only be treated by a professional pest control technician, using specialist equipment and approved pesticides.
