COCKROACHES  

The oriental or common cockroach is widespread throughout the UK. It lurks in heated buildings, ducting, shafts, drains, lose fittings and any dead space. They will eat almost anything and are true scavengers. The next most common in the South of the country is the German cockroach. They like a warm, moist environment such as inside motor housings of fridges and other machines, drink dispensing machines, drink coolers, in voids and behind door seals. They only fly at high temperatures.

Nowadays there is the potential to come accross different cockroaches from other Countries. We recently had to deal with some smaller ones which came here on luggage brought from Nepal and some large American ones which came in on bags of foodstuffs.

There are some interesting baits available now for cockroaches which works in a cascade sort of way. Being cannible, when one insect eats the bait and dies, others will eat this one and die as well and up to 13 can die from just one eating the bait. Such baits, insecticides and a range of different sized sticky boards are control measures we regularly use for these creatures.
