There are two types of Cockroach in the UK, Oriental and German. They are distinguished by their very long antennae, flat oval bodies and their rapid jerky walk.
The German cockroach is a yellowy/brown colour and it can be up to 15mm long. The Oriental Cockroach is a browny/blacky colour 24mm in length.
Able to climb up smooth and rough surfaces and liking a damp warm atmosphere, kitchens, bathrooms, toilets and basements are favourite places for the cockroach. Cockroaches prefer to live in kitchens and other food preparation areas, so they can feed off food spills and have access to water. Hiding spots for the household cockroach include:
Cockroaches eat a wide range of food, including decaying waste, and spread a number of diseases to humans including salmonella and gastroenteritis. Recent studies have indicated cockroaches can also cause allergies. Producing up to 1200 eggs in 12 months, once established cockroaches become a serious threat to health.
