Cockroaches are one of those household pests you don’t want to come face to face with – especially in the kitchen.


Cockroaches are a nocturnal household pest that will eat almost anything, even the grease on walls and the wallpaper. They are usually only seen when lights are switched on suddenly in a room.

Treatment and control

General tips

When first noticed, clean kitchens and bathrooms thoroughly, paying particular attention to under and behind equipment, bath panels and cupboards to get rid of any eggs that have been laid in debris.

Spraying the site

Spray with a suitable and approved insecticide behind cookers, under fridges and washing machines, behind cupboards and along skirting boards. Spray into any cracks and crevices where the pests may hide.
