This little bloke doesn’t fly; he just breeds like crazy when left untreated. When fully grown he is about 2cm long and is a real family orientated critter.
Now we have to be brutally honest here. If you are the type of person that leaves food scraps and dirty dishes out most nights and you have a german cockroach problem already, then you will just have a bigger one regardless of how many tins of fly spray or surface spray you own.
These guys don’t move much except when foraging for food so while they are sitting all together in a tiny nook in your kitchen they are just doing what comes naturally. Over and over and over again. before too long they will infest every electrical appliance including the microwave, knife block, door hinges, computer, television and anywhere else where it is dark or warm or both.
We use special gel bait which has been designed to ‘break the breeding cycle’. Something you must understand though is it is not a case of get the pest controller to get rid of these guys whilst we live the same way. You must make an effort to make sure that your levels of cleanliness improve. Now in saying that, you might be in the small percentage of people that have a german cockroach problem but are very clean and tidy.
This can and does happen as these guys may have hitched a ride in the bottom of a cardboard food box hiding in the corrugations. If so, don’t despair. The gel will do the trick. The process once the bait has been applied can take up to a month to allow for any eggs to hatch and the baby ones to find the bait or consume other dead cockroaches who already have the bait inside them. We can give you advice on any measures that we feel you should take to reduce the possibility of reinfestation.
