Identification: Cockroaches

Cockroaches, Prussians, American cockroaches are a real bane of modern times and large agglomerations. Their food is everything they find on their way, from food scraps, soap, glue, to individuals of their kind. In the initial stages, we can see them mainly at night (when their population is small), but as their numbers increase, they can also appear during the day (hundreds or even thousands). Their traces can be faeces resembling ground coffee or exuviae after they shed their shells. The gel method works well when dealing with a small and medium population. At high, ULV fogging or a combination of both is recommended.

What should you pay attention to?

  • For exuviae (so-called shells).

  • For faeces resembling ground coffee.

  • For eggs hidden in cracks.

  • A specific smell when there is a lot of insects.

  • Are individuals active during the day or only at night?
