Professional Wilmslow Cockroach Control

German CockroachOf the four thousand species of cockroach found worldwide, the most common ones found in the UK are the German Cockroach and the Oriental Cockroach. Because they feed anywhere from sewers to kitchen counters, without Wilmslow cockroach control, they can spread a wide range of diseases to humans.

At Young's Pest Control, our trained technicians offer affordable and efficient Wilmslow cockroach control for residential and commercial properties.

The female cockroach produces eggs and stores them in a pod that she carries within her body. The pod, called an ootheca, can contain over thirty eggs before it is deposited. When the nymphs hatch, they can run and feed immediately and spend several months growing to maturity, moulting periodically as they grow. They breed prolifically, and without cockroach treatment, a small nest can rapidly turn into a major infestation.

An infestation in your house will probably start in the kitchen as they prefer to inhabit warm, damp places. Common places to find them are, under the cooker, behind cabinets or skirting boards, in the crevices around pipes and down drains.

They prefer to eat meat, starchy foods and sweets. In practice, this means they will feed on any grease they find on or in your oven, spilt juice or beer on the counter, unsealed containers in cupboards and leftovers thrown in the bin.

However, cockroaches are resilient and adaptable. They will happily eat any organic matter, including leather, soap, glue in the binding of books, wallpaper paste, flakes of dried skin, hair, faeces, and their own dead and injured.

Public health
Dead cockroachesCockroaches can carry various bacteria and contaminate anything they touch as they move about, including food storage and food preparation areas. Some of the diseases cockroaches can spread are:

  • Dysentery
  • Salmonella
  • Gastroenteritis
  • Typhoid
  • Polio

Professional Wilmslow cockroach control is recommended to ensure an outbreak is dealt with efficiently and safely.

How to find them
Cockroaches are mainly nocturnal insects, so if you switch on the kitchen light in the evening or at night, you may see them scurrying for safety. However, if you see a cockroach during the day, it may well indicate that you have a major infestation and need immediate Wilmslow cockroach control. Another sign to look for is small black specks in food storage areas which are cockroach droppings.
