Why get rid of Cockroaches?

Psychological Impact: Cockroach infestations can cause significant stress, anxiety, and psychological distress for individuals living or working in affected premises. The presence of cockroaches can be unsettling, and the fear of their spread can disrupt daily activities and affect overall well-being.

Reputation and Business Impact: If you own a business, a cockroach infestation can have severe consequences for your reputation. Customers may associate cockroaches with poor hygiene and sanitation, leading to negative reviews, loss of customers, and potential legal consequences. Maintaining a cockroach-free environment is crucial for businesses in the food industry, hospitality sector, and healthcare facilities.

Allergies and Asthma: Cockroach allergens are a common trigger for allergies and asthma. Their faeces, saliva, and decomposing bodies release airborne particles that can cause allergic reactions and worsen respiratory conditions, particularly in individuals who are already susceptible.

 

Damage to Property: Cockroaches can cause damage to various materials in your home or business premises. They are known to chew on paper, fabrics, book bindings, electrical wires, and insulation. This can lead to structural damage, electrical malfunctions, and increased fire hazards.

Health Risks: Cockroaches are known carriers of pathogens that can cause various diseases. They can contaminate food, surfaces, and utensils with bacteria, viruses, and parasites. Exposure to cockroach faeces, shed skin, and saliva can trigger allergies, asthma attacks, and other respiratory issues, particularly in sensitive individuals.

 

Food Contamination: Cockroaches are attracted to food sources and can contaminate them with their faeces, regurgitated food, and body parts. Consuming food contaminated by cockroaches can lead to food poisoning and gastrointestinal issues.

Gisborne Cockroaches

 

It is harmless—unlike German or American cockroaches, it does not spread disease, nor can it fly. It typically doesn’t invade food supplies unless they’re decaying. It prefers to stay outside under bark or wood chips, however, will come inside if it’s wet or too hot.

The Native Bush Cockroach

The Native Bush cockroach lives outside under the bark of trees; however, it can be carried indoors on firewood. It is unable to survive indoors and does not infest food.
