- This will depend the degree of infestation. A one off treatment is usually not enough to control a cockroach infestation. One of our Pest Control Technician will need to carry out an inspection to make his recommendations.
Cockroaches live and feed in unhygienic places such as sewers and drains; they feed on garbage that may be contaminated. Cockroaches will make their home wherever they find food and shelter. The main way they contaminate areas is by their droppings, spreading bacteria that cause diseases like salmonella poisoning, passing on diarrhoea and dysentery.
The German cockroach is the most difficult species to control. They are the most common cockroach found in houses, apartments and commercial buildings. They are small in size and hide in cracks and crevices in cupboards and walls. They are attracted to the warmth of the motors of dishwashers, dryers, microwaves and stoves and can often get into your appliances. Cockroaches will eat virtually an animal or vegetable material. They eat paper, fabric, food spills off the floor and grease splatter on the walls, just to mention a few. As they are generally nocturnal any activity observed during the day is usually an indication of a large infestation. A cockroach can live for up to 12 months.
