Cockroaches

A thorough inspection of the site is necessary to identify the species and extent of infestation. As the cockroaches are nocturnal, a night survey is useful. The inspection can include search for droppings, or egg cases, monitoring traps, and/or use of a spray to flush out the cockroaches.  Salmonella, Dysentery and Gastro-enteritis are common diseases that can be carried by Cockroaches and the droppings have been linked with an increase of asthma and eczema.

 

Basic hygiene management which denies access to food and water, and does not provide harbourage can reduce the population. Cockroaches can be treated with insecticides (both as spray and bait), but will require repeated and thorough application until all of the eggs have hatched. Continued maintenance applications at less frequent intervals are recommended. A professional treatment is essential to control any infestation due to the ability the cockroaches have to breed rapidly and they are very strong and tough insects. Therefore a very quick and effective treatment should commence on the first sighting of any evidence of them being present.
