Cockroaches are one of the world’s most infamous pests; by nature they are dirty and can spread diseases. These pests are directly associated with dirt and poor hygiene, so a greasy kitchen provides the perfect home for a cockroach infestation. Unfortunately, they often find their way into well-kept properties too, usually due to an infestation in a neighbouring area.
There are various species of cockroach; the most common in England are the German, Oriental and brown-banded cockroaches. Regardless of the species, JG can help you get rid of a cockroach infestation.
Getting Rid of a Cockroach Infestation
- Find the source of the infestation. Cockroaches thrive in warm habitats, so the source of an infestation is usually indoors. It’s impossible to eradicate an infestation without locating where the cockroaches are coming from and removing their source of survival (i.e. food). These pests often live off scraps of food and grease builds up, so in order to get rid of cockroaches you must find the source, and give it a deep clean.
- Keep it clean. Cockroaches hate clean areas and cannot survive there, so regularly bleaching the kitchen and cleaning up after preparing food will help deter them. It is also a good idea to keep food in sealed containers.
- Professional treatment. If you have a cockroach problem you will need to seek professional treatment, as there is no effective DIY method of getting rid of cockroaches. Unfortunately, any rumours you’ve heard about using vinegar or garlic will not to work.

DIY Methods to Get Rid of Cockroaches
You’re unlikely to eliminate a cockroach infestation without following the steps above. To discuss treatment options, speak to JG Pest Control. There are no effective DIY treatments for removing cockroaches. Many people attempt to squash cockroaches on sight, but often this only makes the problem worse. By doing this you are transferring cockroach eggs to your shoes or tools, spreading the infestation over the property.
If you spot a cockroach, it’s likely there is an army of the pests hiding away nearby. Cockroaches don’t live alone and breed constantly in a bid for survival. Squashing the odd cockroach isn’t likely to make a dent, which is why professional heat or chemical treatment is best.
