Biology of the Cockroach
Normally the cockroach goes through three life stages: egg, nymph and adult. The entire lifespan of a cockroach is generally around 100 days, but factors such as temperature and nutritional variants may decrease or increase the life cycle. Cockroaches have a tendency to reproduce on a continuous basis; thus, numbers can increase exponentially in a short period of time.

How Cockroaches Can Effect You
Cockroaches can be carriers of some horrendous diseases such as dysentery, gastroenteritis and typhoid. Germs are often spread from the body of the insect or from the creature’s left behind faeces. Essentially, cockroaches can feed on anything including discarded faecal matter. Contamination and infestations occur when cockroaches come into close contact with food sources.
Methods of Control
Here at Young’s Pest Control, we aim to completely eradicate cockroaches when called in to undertake a Hazel Grove cockroach control job. Cockroaches are notoriously difficult to treat, as their hiding dens are difficult to reach because of their advanced breeding systems. The number of eggs cockroaches produce can be somewhat astronomical and treating these with insecticides can sometimes prove problematic. Nevertheless, we do offer a comprehensive eradication program whereby we monitor the problem, to begin with. Once we have established the problem we can decide what course of decontamination action needs to be undertaken.
Our inspections are carried out at night because of the cockroaches at more docile at this time. We also use a red-filter torch, which the cockroaches do not react to and we can see exactly what the level of infestation is.
Importantly, a high level of food hygiene is necessary if the control of cockroaches is to be adhered to. The cockroaches must not be able to access food and water sources, as they are a breeding ground. Therefore, this will increase the chance of the cockroaches’ directed movement towards the insecticides needed to exterminate them. We specialise in Hazel Grove cockroach control and strategies to enhance the chance of permanent cockroach extermination.
