Why Are Cockroaches a Serious Problem?
When you understand how cockroaches operate, you quickly become aware why you need to eradicate them straight away. Cockroaches foul their environment with faeces or castings and with regurgitated food items, and move indiscriminately from their foul matter to food and back over and over. 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 fragments of their excrement. The opportunity for the spread of pathogens like salmonella and other diseases is obvious and it’s not a surprise that their presence causes great distress. We won’t go further (although we could!) but the bottom line is that if you have cockroaches, you need to eliminate 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. During 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 begin noticing them in the day the infestation may be severe. They tend to prefer damp, dark locations ordinarily so are often found 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 daytime– usually a sign that the infestation is well established
Before any work to remove cockroaches is carried out, it is vital 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 instrumental in assisting prepare the required strategy. The pest controller will then seek 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 advised, 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.
