Do You Have A Cockroach Problem?
For many people, cockroaches can cause anxiety when they are found in your home or business. They feel they have a dirty house or unsanitary business so complete removal is important.
Being nocturnal creatures, cockroaches are not usually seen out in broad daylight. They breed so quickly that by the time you realise there is an issue you have become overrun!
Some signs of a cockroach infestation.
There are signs to look for that indicate you have a cockroach infestation, from dust-like black droppings to smear marks in areas where there is high moisture. These smear marks are brown, irregular in shape and size and are usually left when the cockroach is resting or crawling.
Other signs include shed skin, unusual urine like odours and damages to items in the home such as books or furniture.
What Can I Do to Fix A Cockroach Problem?
Cockroaches are a very tough and hardy insect. Some species can survive for up to 4 weeks without food and others can stay underwater without air for up to 45 minutes.
They are resilient and fast breeding and are very hard to treat with off the shelf products.
