COCKROACHES

Cockroaches are common in commercial premises associated with the production or handling of food. Also in public buildings and domestic premises, such as apartment blocks. They spend the day hiding in cracks and crevices around such areas as sinks, drains, cookers, the backs of cupboards and in refrigerator motor compartments. They especially favour buildings with service ducts and complex plumbing installations. Infestations may be introduced as egg cases or adult in incoming laundry, on raw materials, in crates and packaging, or arise as the insects enter buildings via drains or refuse chutes.

Cockroaches can carry diseases such as dysentery, gastroenteritis, typhoid and poliomyelitis. Their diet is omnivorous and includes hair, leather, parchment, wallpaper, faeces and food for human consumption. The latter may be contaminated either by disease from the insect's body, or by transmission in faeces.

Cockroaches and their faeces may cause allergic reactions especially amongst sensitive individuals e.g. asthmatics. Exposure may result from ingestion or through the inhalation of material derived from cockroaches in airborne dust. In addition, food may be tainted with the characteristic smell of the cockroach, which is produced by faeces and salivary/abdominal gland secretions, or by the dead insects.
