Professional Lymm Cockroach Control

The cockroach is one of the most recognisable and reviled pests to invest properties in the UK. To eradicate this disease-carrying insect quickly and discreetly, you can call Young’s Pest Control for an affordable cockroach treatment plan that will remove an infestation from your home using effective Lymm cockroach control methods.

How prolific are cockroaches as pests?

German CockroachOne of the reasons the cockroach is so hated is because it can multiply rapidly - at exponential rates if Lymm cockroach control is not called upon. A household harbouring a thousand of these critters, for example, could increase to six thousand in just six months.

They can reproduce at such prolific rates because the female cockroach only needs to mate once to produce as many as seven cases in her lifetime, each containing between 30 and 40 eggs. The majority of these eggs will mature into adults within two months, ready to reproduce.

Which species are found in the UK?

Most species of cockroach are quite beneficial to the environment, but a small number are considered pests. In the UK, the four species known to infest properties are the Oriental cockroach, German cockroach, Brown-banded cockroach and the American cockroach.

The German and Oriental species of cockroach account for most infestations, and they can often be mistaken for each other due to their similar appearance. However, the German cockroach has two black bands running along its thorax and is slightly shorter in length than the Oriental cockroach.

Do cockroaches carry diseases?

Dead cockroachesOne of the most important reasons to call Young’s Pest Control for cockroach treatment is because this insect can pass on a range of diseases (typhoid, dysentery and poliomyelitis) through direct transmission or via their faeces. In addition, a cockroach will leave droppings wherever it moves, so an infested property is, unsurprisingly, not a safe place to consume or make food.

How can Lymm cockroach control effectively tackle an infestation?

The difficulty in removing a cockroach infestation from home means the job should be left to our Lymm cockroach control experts at Young’s Pest Control. A successful treatment plan requires persistence and experience since it’s not enough to kill the adults. They will have hidden away egg cases containing future generations of cockroaches, and they would need to be killed when they eventually hatch.
