Get Rid Of Your
These insects are notorious scavengers. They can also carry different kinds of diseases including salmonella. The 2 main types of cockroaches we have in NZ are the American cockroach and German cockroach.
The American cockroach is normally found in ceiling voids, under floor areas, grease traps, storerooms and wall cavities.
The German cockroach prefers warmer conditions and usually found in kitchens, laundries and bathrooms. These cockroaches have the capacity to building large infestations due to their short breeding cycle.
The female American cockroach can produce 10 -50 egg cases in her lifetime and each egg case can contain 10 - 50 eggs. The lifespan of the American cockroach is between 6 to 12 months long.
The female German cockroach can produce 5 – 8 egg cases in her lifetime and each egg case can contain 30 – 40 eggs. The lifespan of the German cockroach is between 4 to 6 months long.
The best way to manage cockroaches is reduce any food or water source availability, keep up good hygiene practices and seal any cracks or crevices that could be an entry point for cockroaches.
We can apply gel baits and/or apply a cockroach treatment spray inside and/or outside your home or building.
