Facts about the pest

Cockroaches

Oriental Cockroach Characteristics – Blatta orientalis

Between 20 and 30mm in length this is the roach most commonly associated with hotels, hospitals and restaurants.

Nocturnal you will also find it outside around bin and drain areas. The oriental cockroach uses a pheromone ( a chemical capable of changing the behaviour of another animal of the same species. Not always an attractant ) this allows the Nymphs and adults to cluster together when inactive.

If you are experiencing a sickly sweet smell in heavy infestations there may well be a number of egg cases and even dead roaches to observe.

Lifecycle – Egg case called an ootheca carries around 16 eggs. The Nymphs can take from 5 to 17 months reaching maturity with the adult living around 7 months.

The German Cockroach – Blatella germanic

Smaller than the Oriental at 12-15mm it prefers warm indoor temperatures and is capable of climbing smooth surfaces.

The German Cockroach carries a number of known disease organisms harmful to humans due to feeding on waste food and dirty water then walking over food preparation areas.

The Female German Cockroach unlike the Oriental carries the ootheca containing upto 40 eggs attatched to her abdomen right up until the time of hatching which can take from 2 – 4 weeks.

    Terry was extremely friendly and very thorough. He located the problem and discovered I had both rats and mice. He fitted 11 covers over all the vents outside my bungalow, set traps and eradicated the problem in three visits. Thanks to Terry I am now able to sleep at night! I would thoroughly recommend TP Pest Services for any pest control.

  • Recommend to anyone!

    We had mice and rats in our shed and garden. We found this out when we discovered a hole that the mice had made through the shed and grass seeds were all over the floor that were originally in a box! We called Terry and he and his dog max came to us within a few days. He explained what he suspected and informed us about how he was going to treat this situation. He placed some traps down (a bit different to the ones you imagine!) and explained how they worked. He came back the following week and concluded it was definitely mice and rats. He left it a couple more weeks and checked again. We found his knowledge to be brilliant. He is really nice too which is always good when you rely on a professional to help you. We would definitely use him again and recommend to anyone.

  • Thank you very much TP pest control!

    We contacted Terry and his assistant Max when we suspected rats. Terry with a full diary managed to fit us in straight away and was at the door in the same day. He was very polite, well mannered and talked us through the service he would provide. It was a quick and efficient job carried out by both Terry and his right hand man Max. He was on time and always went the extra mile! After a few visits the problem has been dealt with and we are extremely satisfied with the service we have received from Terry, he is a top bloke and also made us aware of how we can prevent these problems in the future. I cant fault Terry and the service TP pest control provided. I couldn't recommend him anymore!

  • Very Impressed!

    I called TP Pest Control Services as I suspected mice were nesting at the back of the property. Terry was able to respond quickly, despite it being late afternoon on a Friday. What I thought was a mouse, was actually a rat, so I was so pleased that Terry was able to resolve this for me on the very same day. Very impressed with the service received and would highly recommend Terry and his team.
