Cockroach Information

German Cockroach, Blattella germanica

What are they?

Cockroaches can contaminate food with their excrement, give out an unpleasant odour, and many people can get allergic skin reactions to them. For these reasons they need to be effectively controlled.

Cockroaches are large robust insects with whip like antennae and two pairs of wings. The most common species found in the UK are the Oriental and German cockroaches. They can gather together in large numbers if left unchecked.

Cockroaches like the warm, humid conditions found in a typical home. Domestic conditions also give them a good source of food as well as shelter. They are nocturnal, spending the day in such areas as sinks, drains, the back of cupboards and around fridge motors.

Oriental cockroaches are often found in cooler and less humid areas such as drains and basements. They thrive in buildings with service ducts and complex plumbing.

Life Cycle:

The female lays her eggs in a capsule containing up to 16 eggs and carries it to an area where the young can find food. The eggs hatch into small versions of the adults, or nymphs, after six to twelve weeks. The nymphs, which resemble the adults except for lack of wings, take between ten months and two years to grow to adulthood. Adults live for about 18 weeks.

German Cockroach:

The egg capsules of German cockroaches contain up to 32 eggs.  The female carries the egg case for some time and drops it when the eggs are close to hatching.  The nymphs take approximately 14 weeks to grow into adults and can live for approximately 34 weeks.

Control:

High standards of hygiene can stop cockroaches from getting food while sealing cracks and crevices, especially in areas where food is prepared, can deny the insects shelter.  If you live in a block, treatment needs carrying out on a block basis.

Can I get them treated?

Yes, treatment can also be carried out professionally by Pest Control technicians, contact us and an appointment can be made. Please note charges may apply.

Good hygiene is also vital to avoid attracting the cockroaches back to food sources.
