Why Are Cockroaches a Big Problem?
When you understand how cockroaches operate, you quickly become aware why you will need to exterminate them quickly. Cockroaches foul their environment with faeces or castings and with regurgitated food, and they move indiscriminately from their foul matter to food and back again. They will eat anything from food particles, to paper and cardboard and even fabric. They taint materials with their distinctive ‘musky, oily’ smell as well as the air in infested premises may contain particles of their excrement. The potential for the escalate of pathogens like salmonella and other diseases is obvious and it’s no surprise that their presence causes great distress. We will not go further (even though we could!) however the bottom line is that if you have cockroaches, you need to exterminate them and you need a professional pest controller to carry out the dirty work.
The most common (and arguably most revolting) cockroach in the UK is the Oriental Cockroach. Adults are about 20-30mm long and dark brown. Throughout the day they spend their time in harbourages, grouped all together. They are normally on the ground floor only because they are poor climbers. Their activity climaxes in the hours of darkness– if you start noticing them in the day the infestation may be quite severe. They often tend to prefer damp, dark places ordinarily so are often discovered under fridges, in drains, near pipes and in sewers.
Indications 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 exterminate cockroaches is carried out, it is essential 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 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 methods is commonly advised, and monitoring should be put in place. If the infestation is well established, an integrated approach drawn up by an experienced professional pest controller is crucial.
