How To Get Rid Of Cockroaches Completely

Cockroaches are one of the most resilient species found on the planet. Their hardiness and speed of reproduction as given them a reputation as the ultimate survivors. When these pests set up home inside of your house, it can be very distressing.

Overview Of The Common Cockroach

Cockroach closeupCockroaches are generally the size of a paper clip, although there are more prominent species. Cockroaches have a distinctive flat, broad body with a small head. The cockroach has two pairs of wings, but the front pair usually conceal the rear wings. Two basic types of cockroaches are most commonly encountered in the UK. These are the Oriental and the German. The German cockroach is a yellowish-brown colour and can reach up to 13mm in length as an adult. The German cockroach is a capable climber and may be found higher up.

In contrast, the oriental cockroach is a browner colour wand that will measure as much as 25 mm. The Oriental cockroach is not as an able climber as the German cockroach and consequently is more likely to be found at ground level. Cockroaches have changed very little over the last 250 million years due to their resilience and ability to adapt to a wide range of environments.

Selecting The Right Cockroach Treatment

Before delivering any cockroach treatment, it is essential to understand the full extent of the infestation. This can be done by spraying pesticides into cracks and crevices where the cockroaches may hiding. This will help to flush out these otherwise evasive pests. It is best practice to have a trained Kirkby cockroach control technician perform this. A cockroach pest control technician will be able to determine the locations where the cockroaches are concealed on your property.

The Breeding Cycle Of The Cockroach

Dead cockroachesCockroaches have a relatively unique breeding cycle. The female cockroach will lay her eggs inside of the body, which is found in her body. As the pod is filled with eggs, it will stick out of the female moving about. Once the pod is complete, she will lay it. The resulting pod has a relatively rigid shell and is brown. This pod is termed an ootheca. These pods can be quite large when compared to the size of the adult cockroach themselves.
