Cockroach

Cockroaches

Cockroaches can be a problem in the home or in commercial properties with kitchens being a favourite location.  Within the UK there are generally two species of cockroaches commonly found:

German

Oriental

The German Cockroach (Blattella germanica) is light brown and 11-16 mm long when fully grown.  All Cockroaches have a purse-shaped egg case called an ootheca.  The German cockroach carries the ootheca almost until hatching point (approx.. 1 month) when up to 40 mini offspring emerge.  The German cockroach is a good climber and can walk up glazed tiles therefore can be found almost anywhere in a property.

The Oriental Cockroach (Blatta orientalis) is darker brown and larger at 17-32mm long and found in cooler damp areas like basements and cellars.  Their ootheca holds around 16 eggs and hatches between 2-3 months.  The Oriental cockroach is not a good climber and is normally found near floor level.

Treatment

Cockroach treatment in both commercial and residential properties has become simpler with the general use of specific cockroach baits.  The benefits include discrete treatment where a ‘cascade effect’ can be developed where the insects infect themselves.  The key to treatment is to find the source of the infestation.
