A cockroach infestation can be difficult to detect for homeowners and businesses. As they are nocturnal and spend their days hiding in fridges, freezers, dishwashers, and most electrical appliances, spotting one or more during the day may be the sign of an established infestation. These insects do not like the cold, so you are guaranteed they will make their way throughout the property or apartment complex. Another sign of a cockroach infestation would be their droppings or eggs on surfaces and worktops.
German cockroaches are huge carriers of diseases and bacteria as they will feed on almost anything, causing the spread of diseases such as dysentery and salmonella. Cross contamination with food can happen very easily with these insects as they can climb and harbourage in food and packaging. Good housekeeping is essential in avoiding a cockroach infestation and by sealing any cracks around cupboards and skirting boards.
Cockroaches breed fast, meaning you could have a big problem quite swiftly. As soon as you suspect signs of a cockroach infestation, we recommend you contact a professional, licensed, PMU service technician immediately.
