> How quickly do cockroaches spread?
Cockroaches can spread rapidly and very easily. Due to them breeding at an exceptionally quick rate, they can produce eggs whereby, each individual egg can contain a further 30-40 eggs. They have also been known to carry eggs on their backs whilst moving around and these are visible to see. Cockroaches do reach adulthood within in as little as 36 days and when acknowledging these factors, it just shows how quickly it can be before an infestation is within your property.
In addition, due to their ability to run up to three miles per hour; they can spread very quickly throughout a property and into neighbouring properties. Cockroaches can move around by hitching lifts on humans, animals, grocery or handbags, luggage, boxes, furniture or any other item coming in and out of a property. As well as entering properties or buildings from the outside: through sewers, drains, holes, along plumbing pipes, through under flooring, crawl spaces, and open windows and doors.
If only one cockroaches is spotted, there is still a high possibility there is more. Please recognise that with an ever increasing growth in numbers and their ability to spread germs expeditiously, this has major consequences as germs will be almost everywhere, which in turn are health risks. GoKill Manchester Pest Control highly recommends you respond quickly and arrange a visit for a professional fumigator specialist to treat the property to stop them spreading rapidly and before they become pests to your neighbours as well.
