The cockroach is an insect of the order Dictyoptera. There are several types of cockroaches in the UK  although the German Cockroach (Blattella germanica) and the slightly larger Oriental Cockroach (Blatta orientalis) are more previlent.

As cockroaches are usually inactive during the day and they tend to hide in the vicinity of taps, sinks and drains or a ready water source. Signs that may indicate a cockroach infestation include:

  • the presence of small, dark brown, oval shaped egg casings from recently hatched cockroaches.
  • specks of faecal matter and regurgitated food.
  • a strong, very oily odour which cockroaches give off and becomes extremely pungent when large numbers are present.
