Lifestyle of Cockroach
Cockroaches are large insects which range in size from 10-23mm in length. They have long antennae and two sets of wings.
LifestyleCockroaches are nocturnal by nature and spend the day hiding in cracks around areas such as sinks, drains, cookers and the backs of service ducts. They may be seen if you come home in the dark and put the lights on. They also emit an unpleasant almond like smell - only noticeable if the infestation is large.
SignificanceCockroaches can carry dysentery, gastro-enteritis and food poisoning organisms. Germs can spread from the body of the cockroach or from the droppings they leave behind. Cockroaches will feed on almost anything, including faecal matter. Contamination occurs when the cockroach comes into contact with foodstuffs.
Good hygiene is the key to keeping cockroaches out of your home. It denies a food source and makes them easier to spot. All cracks, crevices and other building problems that could provide a dark enclosure for cockroaches should be repaired as quickly as possible. Pipe work should not be boxed in, as it provides an excellent hiding place. You can treat cockroaches yourself using cockroach killing insecticide, applying it to areas where cockroaches shelter, such as cracks, and around refrigerators and washing machines. You must follow the instructions on the product label.
