Mycobacterium tuberculosis - which in turn causes tuberculosis
Entamoeba histolytica - which in turn causes amoebic dysentry
Escherichia coli - which in turn causes gastro-enteristis
Ancylostoma sp. - Dog and human hookworms
Taenia sp. - Tapeworms
How did you know if you have a cockroach infestation?
Cockroach marks:These are liquid excreta manufactured by cockroaches when water is readily available. The marks usually are brown, irregular in form, often by means of streaks and often bigger compared to circular marks left with the house fly.
Faecal pellets: These are produced once the is less water available (rather than liquid excreta) and often found by wall-floor junctions where cockroaches usually move along. The pellets are under 2mm long and usually are brown or black.
Egg cases(oothecae): The empty egg cases of the German cockroach will often be hidden in harbourages, unhatched oothecae are hardly ever found as they are carried with the female until just before they hatch.
Live Insects: Live or recently dead adults or nymphs trapped on insect detectors could help provide clues towards the extent of the infestation.
What is among the most favorable condition for German cockroaches?
The German cockroach species prefers hot and steamy conditions, thus the right location for these to infest can be around kitchen equipment, sinks, around water pipes and radiators, behind wall tiles, plus fridge and freezer motors.
How can German cockroaches be prevented?
The ERDM Principal can be applied to treating cockroaches. ERDM means: 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 prevents 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
