Why Are Cockroaches a Big Problem?
When you understand how cockroaches operate, you quickly become aware why you will need to exterminate them straight away. 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 particles, 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 fragments of their excrement. The opportunity for the spread of pathogens such as 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 require a professional pest controller to do the dirty work.
The most common (and arguably 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 usually on the ground floor only due to the fact that they are poor climbers. Their activity climaxes in the hours of darkness– if you begin seeing them in the day the infestation may be severe. They often tend to prefer damp, dark locations ordinarily so are often found 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 daytime– usually a sign that the infestation is well established
Before any work to remove cockroaches is performed, 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 essential in helping prepare the required approach. 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 combination 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 approach drawn up by an experienced professional pest controller is essential.
