There are three main species of cockroach:
The Oriental cockroach
The German cockroach
The American Cockroach
They are robust insects with long antennae and reasonable vision. Cockroaches are active, quick moving and may travel up to 50m in search of food. As they are of tropical origin cockroaches will normally live indoors (usually seen at night).
The American cockroach is approximately 35mm in
length and are a reddish brown colour, with a
yellow margin to the thorax. The male and female
are winged. They are found mainly by docks within
The German cockroach is approximately 12-15mm in
length and are a yellowish brown colour , with both sexes
winged. The German cockroach requires warm, humid
conditions and are good climbers.
The Oriental cockroach is approximately 25mm in
length and are a dark brown colour. Only the male
cockroach will be winged. They have adapted to
cooler building and some colonies may live
outdoors. Within a building Oriental cockroaches
will seek warm, dark harbourage.
Treatment for cockroaches will require a bait gel being placed in the common areas where the insects may frequent. This will include (but not limited to) kitchen or boiler cupboard hinges and the rear of electrical equipment (toasters, microwaves, fridges etc). This is a poisonous gel which will kill cockroaches that eat it. The live cockroaches will then eat the dead ones and will becoming poisoned themselves, creating a repeating cycle. Insector monitor traps will also be placed in the areas which will trap the cockroaches.
As with most insects they will be attracted to foodstuffs which have been left lying around. Try to ensure that all food scraps are cleaned up on a regular basis.
