Mycobacterium tuberculosis - that causes tuberculosis
Entamoeba histolytica - that causes amoebic dysentry
Escherichia coli - that causes gastro-enteristis
Ancylostoma sp. - Dog and human hookworms
Taenia sp. - Tapeworms
How have you any idea for those who have a cockroach infestation?
Cockroach marks:These are liquid excreta produced by cockroaches when water is readily available. The marks are generally brown, irregular fit, often by means of streaks and in most cases much bigger than the circular marks left by the house fly.
Faecal pellets: These are produced once the is less water available (instead of liquid excreta) and in most cases found by wall-floor junctions where cockroaches tend to move along. The pellets are under 2mm long and are generally brown or black.
Egg cases(oothecae): The empty egg cases from the German cockroach are often hidden in harbourages, unhatched oothecae are not found since they are carried by the female until ahead of they hatch.
Live Insects: Live or recently dead adults or nymphs trapped on insect detectors may help provide clues towards the extent from the infestation.
What is regarded as the favorable condition for German cockroaches?
The German cockroach species prefers hot and steamy conditions, thus the perfect place for the crooks to infest would be around kitchen equipment, sinks, around water pipes and radiators, behind wall tiles, and in fridge and freezer motors.
How can German cockroaches be prevented?
The ERDM Principal can be applied to treating cockroaches. ERDM stands for: Exclusion, Restriction, Destruction, Monitoring
Exclusion: Prevent cockroaches from gaining access by inspections of laundry, deliveries, new appliances etc
Restriction: Good housekeeping, cleanliness and proper waste management may prevent a food supply for cockroaches
Destruction: Use of insecticides, fumigation and insect detectors
Monitoring: Constant monitoring to be sure that there is absolutely no further infestation
