In Britain there are two main species, the German Cockroach and the Oriental Cockroach.

These both carry a huge host of diseases and contaminate food products and surfaces through faecal matter.

The cockroach will favour warm and humid areas that will also be close to a food source so behind fridges, coffee machines, vending machines etc are optimum breeding grounds for an infestation to establish.

Good housekeeping is paramount to reducing the chances of a cockroaches presence however, treatment is extremely effective by the use of gel baits and sticky traps to determine the worst affected areas of a property.
