How to Get Rid of Cockroaches

Cockroaches along with Termites belong to the Blattodea order of insects.

There are more than 4000 species of cockroach in the world but in the UK the most common are the German cockroach, identified by 2 dark stripes on the thorax, the Oriental cockroach, identified for their black or dark brown colour, the American cockroach, identified by their brown / red colour and being the largest cockroach of this group and the Brown Banded cockroach, identified by its brown / yellow stripes on the abdomen.

Cockroaches can survive for at least a month without food but are looking all the time for a meal. These insects will feed on any organic matter including hair or toenails and are known as scavengers even consuming what is in sewage pipes!

Cockroaches very often come into the home or business in search of food and because it's warm inside buildings. Because of their eating habits these insect pests can carry lots of different bacteria and they can trigger asthma attacks or cause allergies.

Very often, cockroaches can be found in kitchen areas where there are warm, damp conditions and where the conditions are ideal for laying their eggs such as under fridges or dishwashers. Cockroaches are nocturnal creatures and if you have an infestation you will know that once a light goes on, the cockroaches scurry out of the way being afraid of humans.

If an infestation has been found, the first thing to do is to make sure hygiene and cleanliness are to the best and highest standard. A thorough, deep clean of the area should be carried out. Then it is a must that products are used to kill and get rid of the cockroaches and their eggs.
