Without question one of the most obnoxious pests that we have to deal with. Cockroaches will eat anything including our food, faeces, each other and the like. They contaminate anything they touch as they pass from filth to food indiscriminately and are therefore associated with the mechanical transmission of pathogens that can cause food poisoning and wound infections. Lovely creatures, there are over 4000 different species of cockroach worldwide.
The Oriental Cockroach, Blatta orientalis is our most common cockroach. Typically difficult to deal with as they like dark in accessible places but we can do it.
