Cockroaches are mostly found in food preparation areas and warm, dark moist places such as under bench tops and drains.
Their sizes range from tiny to over 10cm in length, but in a lifetime, a femal cockroach can lay around 240 eggs, which means that ignoring the problem will only result in large numbers of cockroaches being born.
A schedule of regular maintenance will help to control these insects, and when combined with proper storage of food products, can reduce the concern of cockroach infestation.
