German Cockroach – the one with the ick factor
Think cockroaches only live and thrive in warm climates….you might want to think again!
CPC have found a substantial increase of infestations in Ireland recently. In fact the figure could be high as a startling increase of almost 50% compared to the same period last year. One might go as far as saying cockroaches are currently invading our little island. Not to frighten any of you but the German cockroach could be described as the cockroach of concern..the species that gives all other cockroaches a bad name, as if that’s possible.
While they have been around for years, in fact centuries, an increase has become clearly apparent as the number of people travelling more frequently between Ireland and foreign lands has increased.
These nocturnal pests who generally hide during the day are a threat to health and can carry salmonella, typhoid and gastroenteritis to name a few. And to top the list off, their droppings can cause both eczema and asthma.
In your own home or business, you should keep an eye out for egg casings and cast skins as cockroaches shed their skin a shocking 5-8 times as they mature. Look for droppings and if you smell an unpleasant, musty odour, you may have some unwanted house guests.
