These little pests thrive in warmer environments, so they are naturally drawn to enclosed spaces such as homes and offices. They often find their way into both commercial and domestic kitchens looking for scraps of food and crumbs. Any commercial premises that deals with food service should carry out routine inspections for cockroaches.
Cockroach removal can be quite difficult at times because they not only breed rapidly, but they can live for up to six weeks without feeding. It’s important to have them dealt with quickly though, as they are notorious for spreading disease around your home and pantry.
