Primarily nocturnal, favours warm, humid conditions. Found in heated buildings not normally outside. 12- 15mm in length. Needs access to water and will eat a wide variety of foods. Prefer narrow harbourages close to food and water source.
Requires a very thorough planed treatment. An integrated approach to cockroach control is recommended. The extent and degree of the infestation need to be determined using monitoring devices as well as determining the specie. Most treatments will rely on the use of baits, effectiveness will increase with good hygiene practises and removal of food residue.
