Cockroaches

Cockroaches are common pests found in both residential and commercial areas where there’s food, warmth, and moisture. They carry harmful germs like salmonella and E. coli, making them a public health concern. If you’re dealing with a cockroach infestation, it’s crucial to seek professional help.

At Copley Pest Solutions, our trained technicians know where to look for cockroaches, from electrical appliances to cracks in walls. Once we assess the infestation level, we’ll use various methods to effectively eliminate cockroaches from your property.

DO YOU HAVE COCKROACHES IN YOUR HOME?

If you’ve noticed signs of a cockroach infestation then you need domestic pest control services. Cockroaches can be identified by their unusual smell, droppings or physical sightings throughout your home. Due to how fast they breed, you must use an effective method of removal or you could end up with a much bigger problem that’s harder to control.

Although cockroaches don’t bite they can be dangerous. Like most pests, cockroaches can carry dangerous bacteria and diseases that result in medical problems. 

Cockroaches are known to reproduce at a very fast rate. Moreover, when just a few eggs survive, multiple cockroaches can produce. Due to how fast they breed, you must use an effective method to properly remove them. Many of our clients assume that a general pesticide from a shop will be enough to permanently remove cockroaches from an area, but this is not the case, and as well as removing the cockroaches, you must put measures in place to stop their return.

Another issue is that cockroaches are increasingly becoming more resistant to pesticides, meaning that the removal of them is a lot harder than removing other pests. We have acquired many years in business, and we are confident that only our measures work to remove cockroaches permanently. You may be able to buy over-the-counter pesticides, but we can almost guarantee that these will be ineffective.

There are many preventative measures you can put into place to stop cockroaches from spreading through your premises. For example, you should fill in cracks and crevices in your building as cockroaches use these for nests and pathways. Moreover, Oriental cockroaches are attracted to damp spaces, therefore, it is important to seal all water pipes and joints around the building. Even a small leak can provide the perfect space for a cockroach nest!

Your home should be a safe and comfortable place to live, so as soon as you recognise the presence of cockroaches; call pest control experts who can get the infestation sorted.

WHAT TYPE OF COCKROACH DO I HAVE?

It is very easy to differentiate between German and Oriental cockroaches. German cockroaches are small and fast with a light brown colour and wings that extend just beyond the body, whereas Oriental cockroaches are larger, rounder, and are brown or black with a distinctive shine. If we had to say which one of these cockroaches looks most like a cockroach, we would say the Oriental. You will most likely see a German cockroach indoors as the Oriental cockroaches much prefer damp, dark environments.

By identifying where the cockroach nest is located as well as entry points, our team will seal the area so they can no longer hide. Both German and Oriental cockroaches hate the light, so you can use the same method to remove both – usually, cockroaches only make an appearance at night-time, and when they do, they will try to stay in the shadows.

Once we have removed the cockroach infestation, our pest control professionals will also give advice on preventative measures to minimise the risks of cockroaches returning.

Preventing Cockroach Infestations

Cockroaches can be a nuisance in homes, but you can make your place less welcoming to them by keeping it clean and tidy. Here are some simple tips to help you keep cockroaches away:

  • While improving sanitation alone may not completely solve a cockroach problem, it’s still crucial for managing it.
  • Keep your home clean by removing food debris and maintaining cleanliness around waste bins.
  • Avoid storing paper bags and cardboard, as they can attract cockroaches.
  • Don’t leave food or dirty dishes uncovered overnight.
  • Keep counters, floors, and areas under appliances clean.
  • Seal gaps around pipes and drains to prevent cockroaches from entering your home.
  • If you spot cockroaches, seek professional pest control help promptly.
