Have you Come out to the kitchen in the middle of the night to find cockroaches scurrying across your benches?
Generally, cockroaches hide during the day unless you have a large infestation, in crack and crevices. German cockroaches are generally found in wet areas such as kitchens and bathrooms and can multiply quickly – They lay an egg sack of up to 40 babies at a time. You can identify them by their light brown or tan colouration, with two black stripes located immediately behind their head, adults grow to 13-16 mm and very rarely fly, they prefer to run. You may also notice cockroach dropping (looks a bit like pepper) on tops of doors, around small cracks and openings into walls or in the corners of a room.
German cockroaches have a 4-6 week lifecycle and if you have a larger infestation you may need a follow up treatment, at 3-4 weeks to ensure the cycle is broken, the technician will advise you after his initial inspection.
