Why Are Cockroaches a Big Problem?
When you have knowledge of how cockroaches operate, you quickly become aware why you need to exterminate them quickly. Cockroaches foul their environment with faeces or castings and with regurgitated food, 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 and even the air in infested premises may contain particles of their excrement. The opportunity for the spread of pathogens such as salmonella and other diseases is clear and it’s no surprise that their appearance causes great distress. We will not go further (although we could!) but the bottom line is that if you have cockroaches, you need to get rid of them and you require a professional pest controller to carry out the dirty work.
The most common (and perhaps most revolting) 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 poor climbers. Their activity climaxes in the hours of darkness– if you start seeing them in the day the infestation may be severe. They tend to prefer damp, dark places generally so are often found under fridges, in drains, near pipes and in sewers.
Indications Of Cockroaches
- Lingering oily, musky odour
- Tiny black or brown cylindrical droppings about 2mm long
- Cockroach casts – take a note of where you find these
- Observing them in daytime– usually a sign that the infestation is well established
Before any work to eradicate cockroaches is carried out, it is vital to first determine the cockroach species. This will provide the pest controller with the biology, life cycle and typical habit information of the pest which will be instrumental in helping prepare the required approach. The pest controller will then seek to establish where they are coming from. If this is not possible, they may assist in planning the use of night-vision cameras in this process.
A combination of sticky traps, professional strength gel baits and non-chemical control methods 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 vital.
