Cockroaches: are an extremely distasteful variety of pest. There are often found in the home and are problematic to businesses. Especially in the catering sector because they carry diseases such as salmonella, typhoid and dysentery. Infestations have also been linked to skin disorders such as eczema and asthma.
The most vulnerable to infection are children and the elderly. Cockroaches are one of nature’s tough survivor species, they adapt extremely quickly and many ‘DIY’ products will fail because they are not up to date
Cockroaches are abundant throughout the world and live in a wide range of environments, especially in the tropics and subtropics Cockroaches can withstand extremely cold temperatures, allowing them to live in the Arctic. Some species are capable of surviving temperatures of −188 °F (−122 °C). They feed on human and pet food and can leave an offensive odor. They can passively transport pathogenic microbes on their body surfaces, particularly in environments such as hospitals. Cockroaches are linked with allergic reactions in humans. These allergens are also linked with asthma. Whether you are dealing with a small problem or a larger cockroach infestation we can help. Our technicians can tackle even the most challenging problems. We use a combination of insecticides and deliver the products even in the hardest to reach places.
Cockroaches feed on all types of organic materials including foodstuffs, paper, wood, soap, glue in book bindings, cloth, plants, hair, garbage, sewage and even insulation on electrical wiring. They are carriers of salmonella bacteria that cause food poisoning and carriers of other disease organisms.
They also leave an undesirable odour on materials they contact and may cause allergic reactions for some people.
Cockroaches are potential carriers of diseases and infections. With their bodies they catch bacteria, viruses and fungal spores, which they get rid of on their paths.
Why do cockroaches infest your home
The population of cockroaches at your property will multiply as soon as the insects have access to food, you should never leave exposed food on the counters and dishes in the sink. You should also take care of old plumbing and leaking pipes – these are potential entrance points for roaches. Same applies to holes and cracks around your property.
Cockroaches can flatten their bodies to fit into narrow areas like the space under mats, wallpaper and, of course, wall cracks. Don’t forget to take your rubbish out daily. If you see a cockroach during the day, it is a probable sign of infestation – these insects are nocturnal and only an overcrowding would push them out in daylight.
Cockroaches are extremely hard creatures and adapt well to residential or commercial properties. They are often found in dark, warm places with good humidity which includes:
- Kitchen sinks
- Cracks and Crevices
- Toilets, showers and hot water systems
- Subflooring and roof voids
- Wall Cavities
How to Get Rid of Cockroaches?
The best way to get rid of roaches includes a complete treatment process with three basic steps: sanitation/preparation, combination of insecticides technologies, and progress monitoring.
- Roaches get into almost everything, multiply rapidly, and can survive for several months without food and up to two weeks without water.
- Inadequate application of insecticides can lead to pesticide resistance in cockroaches.
