Roaches can quickly become a menace, as they are fast-breeding insects that can survive in the most adverse conditions. It’s also fair to say that they have developed immunity against certain pesticides, which makes it hard to eliminate a severe infestation with a product bought over the counter. This is why it’s wise to hire a reputable pest management company in London that can offer you guaranteed results and effective solutions.
Cockroaches are rarely able to survive out of doors in the British climate but thrive around the heating ducts and boiler rooms of large centrally heated buildings e.g. hospitals, bakeries, hotels and restaurant kitchens, and blocks of flats.
They cluster around pipes, stoves, and sinks, especially in humid areas, and will often remain hidden during the day. Cockroaches will feed on almost anything, including refuse, faecal matter and food for consumption. They also require access to water and will be generally found in inaccessible harbourages, close to water and food. Cockroaches can survive for several months without food but will not live for more than a few days without water.
