About Cockroaches

Cockroach Facts


  • Cockroaches transmit diseases through contamination, and they contaminate almost everything they touch.

  • There are numerous diseases and health problems that can be contracted from Cockroaches. These can include asthma which can arise from an allergic reaction, E. coli. and Salmonella

  • A cockroach can withstand 10 times more radiation than a human being, but it would not survive a nuclear disaster. However, we have the expertise and knowledge to get rid of them so there is no need to go to extremes.

  • German cockroaches lay approximately 35-40 eggs at any given time, which can mature in about 60 days. and as they reproduce very rapidly, infestations can occur quickly and become severe in a small amount of time and your home can be overrun with them.

  • Although there are many different species of cockroaches around the world, thankfully in the UK we mainly deal with two species; Oriental and German cockroaches.

Can cockroaches transmit diseases to humans?…. Yes, they can


  • BREATHING - Asthma can be brought on by breathing allergens that cockroaches release into the atmosphere

  • TOUCH – Cockroaches can contaminate surfaces that they crawl over. When we touch these surfaces the bacteria is easily transferred to the human body and into our immune system.

  • DIGESTING – So if you touch contaminated surfaces that cockroaches have walked over and then touch your mouth you can then easily digest bacteria from a cockroach

Frequently asked questions

I have cockroaches in my business and I have been spraying them but cannot get rid of them?

Spraying cockroaches with pesticides can be an effective way to control their populations, but it may not be a long-term solution as they can develop resistance to the chemicals. Additionally, spraying pesticides can pose health risks to you, your employees, and your customers. To effectively manage a cockroach infestation in your business, you should take a more holistic approach that includes:

1. Clean and sanitize your business: Cockroaches are attracted to dirty and cluttered spaces. Keep your business clean and free of debris, and regularly sanitize surfaces to remove food particles and other potential food sources.

1. Use baits and traps: Cockroach baits and traps can be effective in controlling populations. Baits work by attracting cockroaches to consume poisoned bait, while traps capture cockroaches when they enter the trap.

3. Seal entry points: Cockroaches can enter your business through cracks and crevices in walls, doors, and windows. Seal these entry points to prevent further infestations.

4. Seek professional help: If your cockroach infestation persists despite your best efforts, consider hiring a professional pest control service. They can provide more effective and safe methods of controlling the infestation.

Remember to always read and follow the instructions on any pesticides or pest control products you use, and take appropriate safety precautions.

Can you permanently eradicate cockroaches?

While it is possible to significantly reduce cockroach populations, completely eradicating them can be a challenging task. Cockroaches are highly adaptable and can survive in a wide range of environments, making them difficult to eliminate completely.

Do cockroaches bite?

Yes, some species of cockroaches can bite humans. However, it’s not a common behaviour for cockroaches and they generally do not bite unless they feel threatened or cornered. Cockroach bites are not usually harmful to humans, but they can cause a mild irritation or allergic reaction in some people. Additionally, cockroaches can transmit diseases and bacteria through their saliva and faeces, so it’s important to take steps to prevent and control infestations in your home or business.

If I place down cinnamon powder will this repel cockroaches?

Cinnamon has been suggested as a natural remedy to repel cockroaches, but there is limited scientific evidence to support its effectiveness. Some studies have shown that cinnamon essential oil can repel certain insects, including some types of mosquitoes and ants, but its effectiveness against cockroaches is unclear.

While cinnamon may have some potential as a repellent, it is unlikely to be a complete solution to a cockroach infestation. It’s important to take a comprehensive approach to controlling cockroaches, including identifying and eliminating their food and water sources, sealing entry points, using baits and traps, and seeking professional help if necessary.

If you’re interested in trying cinnamon as a repellent, you can sprinkle cinnamon powder in areas where you’ve seen cockroach activity or mix cinnamon essential oil with water and spray it in areas where cockroaches may be present. However, keep in mind that cinnamon alone may not be enough to completely eliminate a cockroach infestation.

Will a pest control maintenance contract help with eradicating cockroaches?

A pest control maintenance contract can be a helpful tool in eradicating cockroaches, particularly if you are dealing with a persistent or severe infestation. A maintenance contract typically involves regular visits from a pest control professional who will inspect your property for signs of cockroaches, apply treatments, and provide recommendations for prevention.

Professional pest control services have access to a range of tools and techniques that can be more effective than DIY methods, such as sprays and baits that are specifically formulated to target cockroaches and their hiding places. They can also help you identify and eliminate the root causes of your infestation, such as food and water sources or entry points.

However, it’s important to choose a reputable pest control company with experience in treating cockroach infestations. Make sure the company is licensed and insured, and ask for references and reviews from other customers.

Keep in mind that a maintenance contract alone may not be enough to completely eradicate a cockroach infestation. It should be used in conjunction with other methods, such as regular cleaning and sanitation, sealing entry points, and using baits and traps, to achieve the best results.
