Cockroach Control London

About the cockroach

The two main species of cockroach in the UK include the German cockroach (Blatella germanica) and the Oriental Cockroach (Blatta orientalis). These are both widespread across London causing serious problems. They carry a range of diseases including salmonella and E-coli. For this reason, cockroaches present a considerable risk in hospitals and restaurants, for the pathogens they carry do not affect the insect but are indiscriminately distributed through faeces and smears onto food and food surfaces to be picked up by humans.

Cockroaches are unsightly, disease carrying and damaging to property, food and reputation by contaminating products and kitchens. This can result in prosecutions by Environmental health Authorities.

  • 10-15mm long
