COCKROACH CONTROL HERTFORDSHIRE

Cockroach Control Hertfordshire – We provide cockroach control throughout Hertfordshire to rid you of cockroach infestations. If you have found cockroaches then you are probably feeling a sense of panic and want them gone immediately. For every cockroach you can see, there are surely many more out of sight, especially in the day time as they are nocturnal. Besides the obvious reason to want to get rid of cockroaches, they are actually extremely dirty and cause a potential danger to health by spreading harmful bacteria.

This is a great cause for concern around the home and something you should have treated as soon as possible, the early you star the treatment the quicker they will all be exterminated. For businesses this is also a great cause for concern, especially if the infected property is involved in the preparation of food. We can treat the infected rooms and place monitors down to monitor the infestation in all areas whilst treatment is in progress, once started we will soon have all of the cockroaches gone.

PEST PROOFING

WE OFFER A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT PEST PROOFING MEASURES FOR THE HOME AND WORK-PLACE THAT CAN PREVENT OR REDUCE THE CHANCE OF RE-INFESTATION. THE NUMBER OF PROOFING MEASURES AVAILABLE AND THE TYPE DEPENDS ON THE PEST, ASK US ABOUT THE AVAILABLE PROOFING MEASURES WHEN YOU CALL.

COCKROACH FACTS

  • COMMON SPECIES

    There are two common types of cockroach found in Hertfordshire and the rest of the UK, they are the German cockroach (Blattella germanica) and the Oriental Cockroach (Blatta orientalis). The German cockroach is smaller, around 1.3 cm long and is brown to black in colour. The Oriental cockroach is larger, measuring around 1 inch, it is dark brown to black in colour and appears glossy.

  • DIET

    Cockroaches will feed on almost anything, this can range from faecal matter to food intended for human consumption.

  • HABITAT

    They prefer hot surroundings and will gather around pipes, heat ducting, drains and kitchen appliances. Cockroaches are flat and can take advantage of small cracks and hide in a wide variety of places.

  • BEHAVIOUR

    During the day, cockroaches remain hidden whilst resting within dark cracks, crevices and pipes. At night, cockroaches will roam around in search of food and water. Cockroaches are carriers for many diseases including salmonella, gastroenteriris, dysentery, tuberculosis, tapeworm and hookworm.

  • ACTIVITY

    Cockroaches can be found all year round and may be found in any property, not just those that are considered dirty or messy, although that may extend their visit. You may not realise cockroaches have entered your home for a while as they are nocturnal and by that time they may have grown in number considerably.

BED BUGS (Blattella germanica & Blatta orientalis)

Cockroaches (Blattella germanica & Blatta orientalis) are common throughout the UK. Cockroaches are mostly nocturnal and remain hidden during the day, then appearing at night to feed. They prefer hot surroundings and will cluster around pipes, heating ducting, drains and kitchen appliances.

Cockroaches can live without food for several months but only a few weeks without water. They are flat so can take advantage of small cracks and hide in all kinds of places. If a cockroach infestation is large, an almond like aroma can sometimes be smelt.

Cockroaches contaminate food, kitchen utensils and preparation areas as they move around and carry a number if diseases such as Typhoid & Dysentery.
