Professional Ashton-in-Makerfield Cockroach Control
What are cockroaches?
Cockroaches are relatively large, hardy insects with two pairs of wings and long segmented antennae. There are over 4,000 species around the world of which four species are found as non-native pests in the UK. These are:
- German cockroach (Blattella germanica)
- Oriental cockroach (Blatta orientalis)
- American cockroach (Periplaneta americana)
- Brown-banded cockroach (Supella longipalpa)
The German cockroach and the oriental cockroach are the most common targets of Ashton-in-Makerfield cockroach control.
Cockroaches are omnivorous and will feed on anything from faecal matter to human and pet food. They are active at night and spend daylight hours hiding in crevices, particularly in kitchen areas. They secrete pheromones in their droppings which attract other cockroaches and in ideal conditions, they can keep growing rapidly in numbers unless a thorough Ashton-in-Makerfield cockroach control is performed.
The life cycle of cockroaches consists of:
- Eggs (laid in an egg capsule)
- Several nymph stages
- An adult cockroach
All life stages of the cockroach need to be targeted by an effective cockroach treatment to make sure that the entire problem is eliminated.
Cockroaches don't only spoil food by nibbling on it but can carry disease-causing microbes on their bodies as well as spread them via their droppings. If an infestation is not dealt with by Ashton-in-Makerfield cockroach control, they can contaminate both food and food preparation areas.
