Cockroach Pest Control

Cockroaches are large insects of the order Dictyoptera. In the UK there are two main public hygiene pest species that we get to deal with on a regular basis.

These are the Common or Oriental Cockroach (Blatta orientalis)

Cockroach Pest Control

and the German Cockroach ( Blatella germanica)

Whilst similar in some ways they are different in that the German Cockroach prefers a warm humid environment, whereas the Common is much more tolerant of cooler locations. I have in fact seen Common Cockroaches living outside in the Cotswolds! Both species can be vectors of disease and can damage/contaminate food stuffs. They are difficult to eradicate however with an intergrated approach from a dedicated pest control professional infestations can be controlled.
