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 caused by cockroaches. These include asthma which can occur from an allergic reaction, salmonella, and E. Coli.

  • A cockroach can withstand 10 times more radiation than a human being, but they 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 the extremes.

  • German cockroaches lay 35-40 eggs at a time, which can mature in about 60 days. Because they reproduce rapidly, infestations quickly 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.

How You Can Catch a Disease From a Cockroach

  • INHALING – Asthma can be triggered by inhaling allergens they release into the air.

  • TOUCHING – You can catch a disease from a cockroach by touching anything that has been contaminated by it, then proceeding to touch your eyes, nose, and/or mouth. This will then allow the bacteria to transfer itself from your hands into your immune system.

  • DIGESTING – As with touching, you can easily spread cockroach diseases by eating or drinking anything that has been contaminated by a cockroach.

How to Eliminate Cockroaches from Your Home

Cockroaches are known to carry various diseases and are therefore considered a serious health risk. They are normally associated with unhygienic places but this is a myth, and cockroaches can be found anywhere. They can breed rapidly and once an infestation takes hold they can quickly spread to all parts of your home and should be controlled as soon as possible. Cockroach treatment can be very difficult and sprays offer little to no resistance to them if applied incorrectly. We use a highly effective cockroach gel that quickly knocks them down and gets the infestation under control in no time. Give us a call now to schedule a visit and get rid of your cockroach problem.

About Our Cockroach Treatments
<span>1</span> Initial Visit

1 Initial Visit

  • Before a treatment is carried out, it is important for our technician to correctly identify the cockroach species. This will provide details of the biology, life cycle, and habits of the cockroach so that we can exploit it in the control programme.
  • Once this has been established by our technician, he will be able to carry the appropriate treatment to the relevant areas.
  • Our technician will treat the areas using a highly effective gel that the cockroaches will feed on.
  • The gel will start working within a few hours and when a cockroach dies, other cockroaches may consume their carcass and die as well.  Tests have documented that this can result in one cockroach causing the deaths of up to 44 other cockroaches. This is called the “Domino Effect.”
  • The tech will place sticky cockroach monitor traps in all high-risk locations. This will indicate the level of infestation when checked on the next visit.
  • Once our tech has fully completed the treatment he will complete a detailed digital inspection report explaining what he has done and email this to you directly.
