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).



American Cockroach

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

heated buildings.


German Cochroach

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.



Oriental Cockroach

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.


Control Methods

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.
