German cockroaches are a variety of household cockroach that tend to frequent commercial settings like schools, restaurants, hotels, and hospitals. These roaches are typically tan or beige in colour, with two darker patches that start around the head, and run down the body to the wings.
German cockroaches prefer warmer, moist environments, and eliminating standing water and humidity is therefore especially important. This variety of cockroach tends to be a bit smaller in size than other varieties, so careful treatment to ensure that the whole population has been targeted is a must!
Risks of Cockroach Infestations
- A female that comes into the home with an egg sac may release 15-20 offspring into the home environment.
- Cockroaches have an odour that is unpleasant.
- Cockroach infestations have been linked to breathing problems like asthma and allergies.
- Food borne illnesses can be spread by cockroaches.
Treating a Cockroach Infestation
In order to determine where cockroaches have been residing in a commercial setting, traps must be placed. Then the results with an inspection will determine exactly what areas need to specifically be targeted.
From there, traps, bait and other treatment can be used. Particularly when treating in a commercial environment, we understand how important it is to abide by all health and safety standards. Our products are eco-friendly and biodegradable.
