Cockroaches Pest Control Cambridge

The most common cockroaches in NZ are all introduced species: Gisborne, German and American. NZ also has 15 native cockroaches – mostly found in the garden but they do sometimes wander indoors. Roaches are mostly nocturnal and very adaptable insects. They reproduce quickly, and if left unchecked, can be one of the more difficult pests to eradicate. Without Cockroach eradication some infestations can cause food poisoning, and they may aggravate allergies and respiratory conditions like asthma. Varying in color from light brown to black, the species of cockroach has much to do with the location they are likely to be found.

Tips for Controlling Cockroaches

We believe prevention methods and sanitation are the best management for cockroaches. Along with sealing cracks and crevices where pests can enter your home, making sure food preparation areas are clean will help prevent infestation. Likewise, clearing clutter such as newspapers or piles of clothes is also recommended since cockroaches are omnivorous scavengers who will eat just about anything. Because cockroaches reproduce quickly, do-it-yourself treatments are not recommended. Keeping up good communication with your pest control professional is vital so that further spread and incursion is avoided.
