How to control German Cockroaches?
In the Western Cape, cockroaches are one of the most common pests in homes and businesses. They favour conditions like those that humans create, which is why effective cockroach control and cockroach management by a professional pest control technician is so important. Cockroaches can contaminate food, utensils and preparation areas with droppings, cast skins, egg sacs, regurgitation marks and foal odours.
German cockroaches are nocturnal, if you have seen one lurking around your home or business, you probably have not seen them all. The fewer cockroaches you see by day means they were likely forced out by overcrowding, a possible sign of severe infestation.
German cockroaches can be a major problem in commercial kitchens, restaurants, pubs, cafes and in our homes as they are prolific breeders and can live behind your main appliances i.e., refrigerators, microwaves, under your kettle, ovens as well as the smallest cracks and crevices. They are a relatively small cockroach, ranging from nymphs the size of a pinhead to adults up to 15–25 mm long.
