Cockroaches come in two varieties; German & Oriental. The most commonly encountered are the German cockroach, which are typically around 12mm long and yellowish brown. The Oriental cockroach is around 20-24mm long, and these are either dark brown or mostly black. Oriental cockroaches are commonly found in terraced houses, living and travelling between them using the foundations and house structure as their habitats.
They usually live for a year, and they feed on leftover food, although they can live for up to 3 months without food or water. They are usually controlled using a bait station (typically boric acid powder, which is toxic to them).
Cockroaches are gregarious and nocturnal, spending the day hiding in cracks and crevices around such areas as sinks, drains, cookers and the backs of cupboards, and in refrigeration units. Infestations may be introduced as egg cases or adults in crates or packaging, furniture, laundry or raw materials. They may possibly enter through drains or refuse chutes.
