The Oriental and German cockroaches are the most common species in the UK. The
German cockroach is the smaller of the two and prefers a hotter more humid environment.
Both can carry disease into your premises either through their faeces or carried on their body.
Cockroaches are nocturnal and will hide during the day in cracks and crevices around drains, sinks, cookers and in ducting. The mated female will lay (Oriental) or carry (German) the ‘purses’, containing the eggs. When the eggs hatch the nymphs are adult cockroaches in miniature and have to go through several moults before emerging as a sexually mature adult. They are gregarious, and can produce large infestations.
The Environmental Health officers can take serious action against any commercial food business, that is found to be infested by cockroaches, and the damage caused to one’s reputation could be irreversible.
Cockroaches should only be treated by a professional pest control technician, using specialist equipment and approved pesticides.
