Cockroach Management Solutions

Cockroach Management

Are you searching for cockroach management? In the country, these insects perform a useful role in the eco-system but in the populated suburbs, some species are just pests.

Nobody likes to see cockroaches and you may have noticed that a percentage of people become extremely alarmed when they see them opening cupboard doors etc. Cockroaches can carry a range of dangerous bacteria, including Salmonella, Staphylococcus, and Streptococcus. They may also be capable of carrying viruses such as the poliovirus.

It’s because of the capacity of cockroaches to carry and spread disease that Cockroach management is just as important in the home as it is in a food or restaurant outlet.

What Diseases do Cockroaches Spread?

Cockroaches are scavengers. Not only do they feed on discarded rubbish and dead animals, but they also enter sewers to scavenge. They ingest bacteria while eating, and collect it on their body while moving.

As they eat and move about they regurgitate and expel faeces, leaving bacteria behind. When they travel around your kitchen and investigate the food packets in your cupboard, they may be leaving harmful bacteria behind and when you touch the surface or pick up something they have walked on, you may come into contact with those bacteria.

Tips for Discouraging Cockroaches:

  • Ensure that food is sealed and crumbs or residue are not left on benches, the floor or in the pantry.
  • Empty rubbish immediately from the home and keep outside bins with a tightly fitted lids.
  • Wash all pet bowls and do not leave food in the bowl overnight.
  • Storing old books, magazines or other items that aren’t in use in well-sealed plastic containers rather than cardboard boxes, or just stacking them in a storage cupboard.
  • Regularly clean behind and beneath kitchen appliances like the microwave and fridge, and remove the crumbs daily from your toaster.
  • Using a surface spray.

Whether you’re a restaurant operator or a homeowner, the sight of a cockroach scurrying across the floor – or even belly up dead in the cupboard – is something you’d prefer not to see; and it’s certainly something that your visitors or customers don’t want to see.

But sometimes, despite your best efforts in regard to hygiene, cockroaches still appear. This may sometimes be the result of unhygienic conditions at nearby premises, or conversely, the result of a recent pest control or cockroach management treatment nearby that has sent the local cockroaches off in search of new food sources.

If you’d like to speak to a professional about cockroach management you can call us today for more information or arrange a pest inspection.
