Cockroach Control

Did you know?

  • A Cockroach can live up to nine days without its head!
  • 6,000 cockroaches were found in a single beer carton.

Cockroaches are among the fastest land-moving insects. They are capable of moving 50 body lengths each second! If a human had this potential he could run a 100-yard (91.44 metres) dash in 1 second, reaching a speed of 200 miles (322 kilometres) per hour.

Cockroaches have been found to carry the pathogens that cause tuberculosis, cholera, leprosy, dysentery, and typhoid, as well as over 40 other bacteria or viruses that can cause disease. This is why the Health Department will close down a business that is known to have cockroaches. So, whether they are light brown, dark brown, large or small, they need to be eradicated.

Typical Signs of Cockroaches

German cockroaches are most commonly introduced into buildings through paper products, grocery bags, cardboard boxes, drink cartons, and second hand appliances. You know that you have a cockroach problem when:

  • You see live insects – because they are nocturnal, you’ll see them at night when you turn on lights.
  • Cockroach skins – as they mature, cockroaches shed their skins.
  • Droppings – black droppings of less than 1mm width and various lengths.
  • Smell – a cockroach infestation produces a musty odour.
  • Damage – cockroaches will attack organic material such as books and leather.

Preventing Cockroach Infestation

  • Seal gaps in kitchen
  • Remove waste
  • Store food in sealed containers
  • Keep garbage tidy
  • Clean debris from cupboards and under appliances
  • Wash dishes immediately after use
  • Remove uneaten pet food
  • Remove liquids from sinks and buckets
