Cockroaches; How to Spot Them and What Can Be Done

German CockroachThe cockroach is one of the world's longest living and most hated pests. They are a hardy animal, surviving all kinds of weather conditions and they will root themselves in places in the home or office where you will not be able to find them. Hale cockroach control is a problem best left to experts and not treated by the person finding it.

What Attracts Cockroaches?

Cockroaches are attracted food and liquid sources; often, this will mean that they prefer places where this is likely to be more prevalent, such as the yards and bin rooms of restaurants and hotels. However, they will go wherever they spot a source, and will then begin an infestation. This makes Hale cockroach control a two-step process; sorting the problem, then preventing it from coming back. This is why 'over the counter' cockroach treatment methods fail most of the time. The average home or office owner will possibly kill the cockroaches, but not their eggs, so a new batch will soon come along, and you'll forever be chasing them. They also like to make nests in hard to reach places such as wall voids, drainage systems and other dark, hard to reach places

What Are The Signs?

The signs of a cockroach infestation are noticeable and unpleasant. They include dead cockroach carcasses, shed skin, faeces (sometimes resembling coffee grounds or cylindrical shapes with larger cockroaches) and an oily, musty smell. In very rare cases, cockroaches have bitten humans, but this is only when food sources are scarce and cockroach numbers are large.

What Are The Risks?

Dead cockroachesApart from structural damage caused by nesting in integral areas of the building, cockroaches carry diseases and bacteria; not just in their droppings, but also on their skin. They have been linked to E Coli, Salmonella, and various types of worms and human pathogens. Gastroenteritis and food poisoning have been directly attributed to their infestations, so proper Hale cockroach control is essential for anyone running a business selling or serving food.
