Cockroaches

Cockroaches

Cockroaches are found all over the world. There are more than 3,500 species of cockroach. The most common varieties in Australia include the German, American and Oriental cockroaches.

American cockroaches are large and black. German cockroaches are smaller and brown.

Because cockroaches eat a wide range of food, including rotting garbage, it is believed that they spread a number of diseases to humans including salmonella and gastroenteritis. Recent studies have indicated cockroaches can also cause allergies.

A cockroach infestation can be treated with a combination of good hygiene practices and insecticide.

The cockroach population thrives in areas where food, water and shelter are readily available.

Roach control at the basic level therefore involves reduction or elimination of these components from the environment. Although it may seem impossible to completely eradicate cockroaches from your dwelling, you can always attain a certain level of control, so that very few of these insects are ever seen.

Cockroaches have changed very little in their 400 million years on earth. Because they evolved as scavengers of dead plant material, they prefer carbohydrates to proteins or fats. However, when they are hungry, they will feed on almost anything.
More than 3500 cockroach species exist worldwide.
