Do you think you might have a cockroach problem in home?

Cockroaches leave behind cast egg cases, droppings and a obnoxious-smelling odour. As cockroaches are nocturnal, they hide in cracks and crevices, behind electrical equipment, and in humid places such as behind tiles in kitchens and around sinks during daytime. The most common cockroaches found are German Cockroaches, American cockroaches and Brown Banded Cockroaches. Learn more about cockroaches.

Cockroaches in the home pose the following health risks:

  • Cockroaches are carriers of illnesses such as salmonella, dysentery, gastroenteritis and typhoid.
  • The risk is particularly high in homes with children, the elderly or those fighting illnesses and cockroach droppings cause health problems such as eczema and asthma.
  • Cockroaches produce a revolting odour that spoils food and taints objects they come into contact with.
  • They breed quickly and are highly resilient. A quick response to your cockroach problem is highly important to ensure a cockroach infestation does not spread.

How to get rid of cockroaches in your home

Be sure to seal access points whereby cockroaches can gain access to your home; this could be anything from water pipes to cables and vents. It is important to employ basic housekeeping activities to get rid of cockroaches in your home, such as immediately cleaning spillages and food residues in the kitchen, storing food in sealed containers and not leaving liquids standing overnight.
