Cockroaches are another serious public health pest because they can spread a large number of gastro-intestinal and other diseases. They can be found in homes and domestic areas as well as commercial food premises, especially in blocks of flats, where they may live in kitchen ductwork and the drainage system.
The two most important species from the public health point of view are the Oriental cockroach and the German cockroach. The adult Oriental cockroach may be 24mm long and almost black in colour; only the males have wings. The German cockroach is smaller, 14mm long, and is yellow brown in colour; both the males and females are winged.
Cockroaches are nocturnal insects; spending the day in cracks and crevices where they are difficult to detect. When you start to see evidence of an infestation, it is usually well established and professional help is needed.
