Dangers of cockroaches

Cockroaches are one of the most common pests in the UK, and their presence is never welcome. They are known carriers of diseases such as salmonella, dysentery and gastroenteritis. They can also carry tapeworms and roundworms, along with a number of viruses that can be dangerous to humans. There has even been a rise in eczema and asthma cases that have been linked to cockroach droppings in some studies. Needless to say, these are bugs that you don’t want to come into close contact with.

Warning signs

It’s really important to be vigilant and keep an eye out for cockroaches on your property, so that you can deal with them as soon as you notice an issue. So, what signs should you be looking out for?

  • Droppings – these can vary in appearance from tiny dark specks to easily distinguishable little pellets, and they are often one of the first signs of an ongoing cockroach problem in a property.
  • Unpleasant odour – another big indicator of a cockroach issue is a foul smell. Often described as musty, this scent will become stronger as the number of cockroaches’ increase.
  • Shed skins – cockroaches shed their skins many times as they grow, and these skins are often found in the places where they take shelter.
  • Smear marks – in areas where there is a lot of damp, cockroaches will often leave brown smears as they move around. These are most often seen on horizontal surfaces and areas where the wall and floor meet.
  • Egg capsules – these capsules are reddish-brown to dark-brown in colour and range from 5 to 13 mm. Each capsule can hold up to 50 eggs, so it’s vital that you take action as soon as you spot any.

Our Essex cockroach control team are here to help you right now, so don’t hesitate to get in touch if you notice any of the above signs on your property.

I have had dealings with Paul over a number of years now (20 years +) principally dealing with field mice in our loft. Paul is highly professional and without hesitation will always part with helpful advice and recommendations before booking an appointment. You will not find better customer service. I am in no doubt that now Toby has joined the family business, Town & Country Pests will go from strength to strength.
