Many people find the mere sight of a cockroach abhorrent but their presence carries risks far beyond any psychological response.
Cockroaches can carry many diseases, including typhoid, dysentery, tuberculosis and gastroenteritis. In particular they are well known for spreading various types of food poisoning. Allergic and asthmatic reactions are also reported and when cockroach populations are large they have even been known to bite people.

There are several species known to inhabit our buildings but three are more frequently encountered. Despite their names, they all probably originated in Africa.
Cockroaches belong to the order Blattodea. They are a very successful group of insects that have changed very little in millions of years.
Naturally they live in decaying vegetation, under bark and in the burrows of other animals but some species have become very adept at exploiting the dwellings of people. Our kitchens, drains and sewers provide the perfect conditions of food, warmth, humidity, shelter and the absence of predators.
They will eat almost anything: animal or vegetable, food scraps, pet food, fabrics, paper and cardboard, hair and leather, animal carcasses and animal waste. Populations can explode to thousands of individuals within the confines of a single building.
Cockroaches are Nocturnal (active at night or in darkness), Gregarious (congregate and rest together) and Thigmotactic (seek the security of contacting surfaces such as cracks and crevices when at rest.) These habits can disguise the level of infestation and a thorough inspection is often required to locate and treat them.
Sighting of cockroaches during daylight or in well lit areas indicates an overpopulation and further investigation of their usual resting places is recommended.
