Disease Carrying Cockroaches

The German Cockroach

The German Cockroach is probably the most common cockroach found in our home environment.

It is certainly the most prolific breeder. The life cycle will often produce up to 4 generations per year, with the female laying up to 40 eggs per cycle.

Like all other cockroaches, they will find any crack and crevice to live and breed in. They will find particular comfort in warm moist areas with abundant food sources. In particular kitchens and bathrooms.

As they are a nocturnal pest, seeing them during daylight hours is an early sign that you may have an infestation.

If left untreated, kitchens in particular, can be home to hundreds of unseen cockroaches. Potentially posing a serious health risk.

Often dwelling in areas of poor hygiene, cockroaches will scurry over kitchen utensils and plates spreading disease as the travel.

What you can do to prevent cockroaches

There are some simple measures you can take to help lower the risk of cockroach activity in your home or commercial kitchen:

  • Maintain a high standard of hygiene, especially around your kitchen area. Clean up all food spills and avoid leaving any food scraps around.
  • Reduce water sources such as leaking taps, pooled water and unnecessary water containers.
  • Store all food product in well sealed airtight containers.
  • Where possible avoid leaving pet bowls out for extended periods of time. Wash them on a regular basis.
  • Rubbish bins should be taken out every night.
  • All located cracks and crevices should be filled in or sealed.
  • Possible entry points around doors, windows or service pipes should be sealed off where possible.
  • Commercial kitchens should pay particular attention to incoming products. Inspect thoroughly on opening to ensure you are not introducing an infestation to your premises.
