The facts about Hertfordshire cockroach control

The reason why cockroaches are so hard to exterminate is mostly because of their incredible ability to survive. There are two types of cockroaches generally found in the UK. These are the German and Oriental cockroaches. The first variety is a brown shade and can almost be described as yellow. The second type has a light brown colour. Both of these species are oval shaped and can move at a high rate of speed.

No matter what types of cockroaches you have it’s critical that you remove them immediately. All species of cockroaches spread bacteria and can contaminate food.

If you have cockroaches then it’s more than likely because of unsanitary conditions in your home or kitchen. Cockroaches are attracted to any place where they can find food or shelter. This is generally the warm, humid conditions found in commercial kitchens.

Due to their size, these bugs can easily infiltrate any kitchen. They are able to enter beneath doors and through the tiniest cracks and openings. To prevent this you should seal these off whenever they are found.

If you do have cockroaches then Pest Exterminators Herts recommends deep cleaning your kitchen. Go from top to bottom and remove any food waste or debris. Once this is done continue to maintain the cleanliness of your kitchen.

How to know if you need pest control for cockroaches

Cockroaches are easily recognisable. The problem is that you will not often see them walking around during the day time. These bugs shun contact and will take off if they detect a human presence. They also avoid light and usually only come out at night. Instead, you will most often detect them by what they leave behind.

This includes defecation, dead bodies, egg casings and other debris like wings. If you see any of these there is a good chance that cockroaches may be present in your kitchen.

If there are cockroaches in your kitchen then you need to do something about this. These insects are capable of contaminating everything they come into contact with. This includes food, cutlery and any surface they move across. When food is contaminated by cockroaches it can cause problems such as food poisoning and diarrhoea.

Probably the worst consequence of a cockroach infestation is the loss of business you may incur. Pest Exterminators Herts has seen this happen to more than once. After all, no one wants to eat at a restaurant which has a reputation for having cockroaches.

What do if you need Hertfordshire cockroach control

As we’ve mentioned cockroaches are extremely difficult to get rid of. Anyone who has dealt with an infestation will know this. These bugs can squeeze into the tiniest areas which means they can easily hide away from you. Not only that, they breed at a phenomenal rate.

Even if you do clean your kitchen and remove cockroaches, most of the time their eggs will be left behind. From there it’s a simple matter of these eggs hatching and the cockroaches reproducing.
