Do you suspect you have a problem with the prolific German Cockroach? Then it’s highly likely you do! Our buildings are an ideal habitat for cockroaches because they provide food, water, warmth and shelter. If you happen to see them during the day or in areas where there is no food available such as bedrooms, then you may have enormous populations of these German Cockroaches.
Signs of Cockroach Activity Include:
- Droppings – Cockroach droppings resemble pepper and larger droppings of around 2mm can have ridges along their sides and have blunt ends.
- Casts – Cockroaches cast off their outer body or skeleton during their life and you may notice these in various areas around your home or building.
- Spoilt Food – Cockroaches will eat food that has not been properly stored and vomit back onto the food.
- Spread disease by transporting bacteria and organisms from sewers and other unsanitary sources to food and food handling surfaces and utensils.
- Seriously harm the reputation of a business. The appearance of Cockroaches in the public areas of a business can result in a huge loss of goodwill and subsequent downturn in business. Even your staff can find the presence of Cockroaches quite repulsive.
- Contaminate food with their droppings, their dead casts (outer skeleton), discarded Cockroach egg cases, dead Cockroaches and even vomit marks.
- Cause unpleasant odours due to secretions from their mouths and outer shell. These are particularly severe when large populations are present.
