How to get rid of cockroaches in the UK

Cockroaches are one of the most common pests found in homes all over the UK. They enter your home hitching a ride on packaging or furniture, and they find their way into your house through cracks and joinery.

Roaches can also be found in restaurants, hospitals, hotels and other food preparation service businesses. Cockroach infestations are unsightly and extremely unhygienic for both occupants of the property as well as guests that frequent the premises. Cockroaches are not only a cockroach pest problem, they produce allergens that can affect the health of humans which is why cockroach infestations should be addressed without delay.

Types Of Cockroaches That May Infest Your Home Or Commercial Property

We know cockroaches can be a hassle and it is important to deal with cockroach infestations as quickly as possible-Over 22 species of cockroach can be found in the United Kingdom

Cockroaches tend to prefer warm, moist and humid conditions and they will seek out these environments if cockroach control measures are not taken.They feed on almost anything including grease, soap, toothpaste and food scraps .However they need water so contact Bon Accord Pest Control right away if you suspect cockroach problems at your home!

The German cockroach

The German cockroach (Blattella germanica) is by far the most common cockroach found in homes across the UK and throughout other parts of the world. This cockroach has an oval body shape with two black streaks running down its back. 

They like warm humid places to nest such as near hot water pipes or behind fridges, sinks or dishwashers. The female cockroach carries her egg capsule for around 20 minutes before attaching it to surfaces where incubation takes about 30 days. It can take up to 200 days for German cockroaches to reach adulthood.

During this time cockroach nymphs moult (shed their skin) 5 times before reaching adulthood, and they also require food and water which is why cockroach infestations should be addressed without delay.Though cockroaches are commonly known as dirty pests that feed on decaying organic matter, there are other types of cockroaches in the UK. 

The American cockroach

The American cockroach (Periplaneta americana) is larger than most cockroaches found in homes across the UK measuring approximately 30mm long with a reddish brown coloration. These cockroaches prefer dark moist areas such as drains or sewers where they can find both shelter and food. However, these cockroaches can be found in homes if they have been attracted by a food source such as a spilled soft drink

The Oriental cockroach

The Oriental cockroach (Blatta orientalis) is also a cockroach that infests homes throughout the UK and this cockroach prefers higher humidity levels than German cockroaches which is why you will find them around bathroom fixtures. The adults are dark brown to black in colour, and they measure between 20mm to 25mm long with fully developed wings. However, unlike other cockroaches these winged creatures fly towards lights at night before settling down once again

Hiring an experienced pest control company will help to rid your home of cockroaches for good along with any other unwanted pests that might be lingering around your property.

We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.
