What are cockroaches?
Cockroaches are a family of large scavenging beetles. The most common species of cockroach found in the UK is the German cockroach, which is typically between 1cm and 1.cm long. It has a rounded body, usually brown or black, and it has wings which allow it to glide rather than fly.
Cockroaches prefer warmer environments with accessible food sources. This is what brings them into houses and commercial premises. Anywhere with a kitchen can attract cockroaches. They are omnivorous and will eat almost any organic material available, including sugar and starch, meat, waste products and even paper.
Cockroaches are far more common in big cities like Petts Wood, St Mary Cray, BR5 than in rural areas. They are attracted to areas with dense human populations, as these guarantee a steady food source. The tightly packed design of Petts Wood, St Mary Cray, BR5 buildings, coupled with how common shared buildings are in cities, makes cockroach control more difficult.
Cockroaches can move quickly, so they can spread between rooms, floors and buildings. They also reproduce and mature in short cycles of around 60 days, so populations can quickly explode in numbers if no control measures are enforced.
Identifying a cockroach infestation
Initially, it can be hard to detect a cockroach infestation in order to enforce cockroach control. The bugs are typically nocturnal, preferring to scavenge for food when the kitchen is empty and the lights are off. Often, the first sign of the infestation is noticing bugs scuttle away when you switch on the light and enter the room.
Other signs include noticing cockroach faeces around walls, floors and skirting boards. Cockroach droppings are small and cylindrical, measuring around 0.2cm in length. Where cockroaches have ready access to water, they tend to produce a brown liquid which is often smeared around the room as the bugs move. They also emit a strong smell, which becomes noticeable when a large number of cockroaches are present.
Look out for cockroach cases as well. Roaches shed their skins regularly as adults, with their hard shells giving way to growth. These shed cases tend to be found near the corners and crevices that the bugs are sheltering in, and they are a telltale sign that an adult population is present.

Preventing cockroach infestations
Cockroach control can begin long before a problem develops. To keep cockroaches at bay, there are some steps you can take at home or in your work kitchen. The easiest way to prevent cockroaches from establishing a home in your premises is to remove all available food sources. This means never storing food in the open, and using sealed containers to protect ingredients in storage.
A good and thorough deep clean every few months is also essential. Keeping the floors and room corners clean will ensure there are no food scraps and crumbs for the beetles to feast on. Clutter also attracts the beetles, giving them dark, quiet spaces to hide and breed in.
A little DIY can keep the bugs from entering your home in the first place. Look for cracks and gaps in walls and skirting boards, and seal and varnish your floors. The fewer entry points and hiding places the critters have, the less likely it is they will come in – or stick around.
