Why Are Cockroaches a Big Problem?
When you have knowledge of how cockroaches operate, you quickly realise why you will need to eliminate them quickly. Cockroaches foul their environment with faeces or castings and with regurgitated food items, and move indiscriminately from their foul matter to food and back again. They will consume anything from food fragments, to paper and cardboard and even fabric. They taint materials with their characteristic ‘musky, oily’ smell as well as the air in infested premises may contain fragments of their excrement. The potential for the escalate of pathogens such as salmonella and other diseases is clear and it’s no surprise that their presence causes great distress. We won’t go further (although we could!) however the bottom line is that if you have cockroaches, you need to remove them and you need a professional pest controller to do the dirty work.
The most common (and perhaps most disgusting) cockroach in the UK is the Oriental Cockroach. Adults are about 20-30mm long and dark brown. During the day they spend their time in harbourages, grouped together. They are normally on the ground floor only due to the fact that they are weak climbers. Their activity peaks in the hours of darkness– if you begin noticing them in the day the infestation may be severe. They often tend to prefer damp, dark places generally so are often discovered under fridges, in drains, near pipes and in sewers.
Signs Of Cockroaches
- Lingering oily, musky odour
- Small black or brown cylindrical droppings about 2mm long
- Cockroach casts– take a note of where you find these
- Seeing them in daylight– usually a sign that the infestation is well established
Before any work to remove cockroaches is carried out, it is essential to first identify the cockroach species. This will provide the pest controller with the biology, life cycle and typical habit information of the pest which will be essential in helping draw up the required approach. The pest controller will then look to establish where they are originating from. If this is not possible, they may assist in planning the use of night-vision cameras in this process.
A mix of sticky traps, professional strength gel baits and non-chemical control procedures is commonly recommended, and monitoring should be put in place. If the infestation is well established, an integrated strategy drawn up by an experienced professional pest controller is essential.
