Finding cockroaches in your business or home can be very distressing. As cockroaches are known carriers of diseases such as Gastro-enteritis, Dysentery & Salmonella, your exposure to this pest will pose a significant health risk. Increases in asthma and eczema are linked to cockroach droppings.
Cockroaches are very tough insects, and their ability to breed rapidly makes professional treatment essential to control an infestation. Only expert professional grade products and solutions are powerful enough to eliminate all stages of their lifecycle.
If you have noticed a lingering, unpleasant odour under sinks, behind appliances or in cupboards, it’s time to check for signs of cockroaches.

Why use Apex for the Best Cockroach Pest Control?
Our Cockroach Control Methods - How We Help Kill them.
An established cockroach infestation can be challenging to control if the cockroaches are distributed throughout the building, coupled with the fast rate of reproduction of the species. Several treatments, along with monitoring, may be required.
Before any treatment is carried out a thorough a survey is required to establish which species of cockroach we would be treated as this along with the slightly different biology, and behaviour of each species will enable better control.
We have different control methods at our disposal. These may range from:
- Gel applications
which get placed in a position where cockroaches will feed on the bait
- Insecticide applications
Where we will both fan spray and crack and crevice treatments, using a rotation of insecticide. These may also contain insect growth regulators.
- ULV application.
This airborne insecticide with droplets size down to 15 microns and complements the fan and crack and crevice treatment.
After each treatment, a period of monitoring with sticky traps is advisable to give an early warning. Steps should be taken after treatment to prevent re-infestation, by proofing buildings, monitoring goods coming into the building, which may carry egg cases or live cockroaches.
Frequently Asked Questions
Damp basements, leaky pipes, and other stagnant water sources are also popular with cockroaches as they need lots of moisture to survive.
Unsanitary environments attract cockroaches, and it’s reasonable to see them around bins or spilt food. Other culprits are usually decaying foods such as meat, cheese, starch, or sweets.
Cockroaches are efficient hitchhikers, so they can easily sneak into your home by hiding inside packages, bags or potted plants.
If your next door neighbour is carrying out treatment to eradicate a cockroach infestation, the insects may escape through the building and enter your home instead. Finally, they can crawl in through any door that you have open.
Only some roach species, such as the German cockroach, are known to bite humans. But, while bites are relatively rare, these insects often carry a lot of harmful bacteria on their bodies and legs that will easily contaminate your food or utensils and potentially affect your health.
A thorough clean of your home, including appliances, kitchen and bathroom surfaces to remove leftover food or debris, will usually discourage cockroaches from leaving their hideouts.
You can also deter the insects by fixing holes around pipes, filling in wall cracks, and keeping moisture levels in the bathroom low. A water and baking soda mixture will also work wonders against the most bugs.
Cockroaches are resilient creatures, depending on the roaches’ type, their size and numbers, and on whether you decide to use pesticides or not.
It would take about two weeks to deal with a small-scale infestation and up to eight weeks for more severe outbreaks.
Please note that these estimates are approximate to eliminate the pests.
