Bristol Cockroach Treatment and Control
Cockroach pest control in Bristol has been rising over the last decade. More and more homes and businesses are finding they have problems and are providing harbourage of these pests. Few insects seem to cause as much concern as cockroaches and finding them in your home or business can be very distressing indeed. The problem with these insects is until the levels are quite dramatic, they are primarily nocturnal and can often go completely unnoticed. Usually, by the time you realise your property has a problem, you are usually facing quite a heavy infestation.
What Type Of Cockroach Have I Got?
Worldwide, there are approximately 4,500 species of cockroaches but just 30 are classed as pest species. In Bristol and the surrounding areas, there are 2 prevalent species that are usually encountered. These are the German cockroach and the Oriental cockroach. In Bristol, the German cockroach is more widespread than the Oriental cockroach.
Cockroaches are extremely resilient insects and their capacity to breed makes calling in a professional your only option. Although there are some cockroach products on the domestic marketplace, NONE of these is strong enough to rid you of an established infestation. ONLY expert application of professional products will provide a lasting solution.
Do Cockroaches Carry Disease?
Cockroaches are known carriers of disease. The disease they carry is passed by contact or consumption of items that have been contaminated by the cockroach, usually in its faeces. Diseases they spread can be very serious to humans and eradicating cockroaches from your home or business must be given the highest priority.
How Do I Know If I Have Cockroaches?
There are a number of ways that will indicate to you the presence of cockroaches in your home or business, these include;
- Visual sightings – Cockroaches are predominantly nocturnal and will be out of sight during the day. Turning the lights on unexpectedly in a room can catch them unaware and cause cockroaches to scatter in all directions.
- Strange/unusual smell – Infested areas and cockroach harborage sites often give off an unpleasant odour, often described as musty or oily.
- Shed skins – Cockroaches can go through 5-8 stages of development where they ‘cast’ their nymphal skins which can often be found near areas of harborage.
- Droppings – Usually between the size of ground pepper to coffee grounds.
- Egg Cases (Oothecae) – Oval shaped egg cases are often found in and around an infested area.
