German Cockroach are a major pest in the kitchen areas

Where they are present in large numbers they may give out an unpleasant smell. The female cockroach can produce up to eight egg cases every 4 weeks, each of which can contain up to 30 eggs. Cockroach nymphs (babies) emerge from their eggs after 2-4 weeks.
