Cockroaches are nocturnal, they hate light. As soon as you shine a light on them, they accelerate towards the nearest shadow. This means they can remain hidden in a home or business while their population secretly grows into an all-out infestation.
Cockroach, roach, blat… is there a difference between these insects?
In reality, these three terms are synonyms designating the same insect: Blattella germanica. More commonly called the cockroach, this insect is brown to black in color and measures between 10 and 15 millimeters long. Cockroaches are nocturnal insects that feed on a wide variety of foods, such as food waste, papers, fabrics, and even feces.
Cockroaches can carry diseases such as salmonella or dysentery, and their presence in a domestic or professional environment can be very annoying. They breed quickly and hide in dark, damp places, such as kitchens, bathrooms, basements and sewers.
It is important to note that cockroaches can survive for months without food or water, making eradication difficult. Additionally, they are known to be resistant to many pesticides and can develop resistance to other forms of treatment if the methods are not properly applied.
This is why it is recommended to call on a professional pest control company to fight against cockroaches in Brussels. Professionals have the skills and equipment to identify the origin of the infestation, apply the most effective methods for elimination, and prevent further infestations.

Cockroaches in your house?
If you’ve spotted a single cockroach, you can assume there are many more – possibly hundreds – hiding under your kitchen units, washing machine or dishwasher, or in cracks, crevices and hollow walls.
If they stayed off site and fed on trash, cockroaches might not be so bad, but because they drag their bellies through the dirtiest parts of a building and feed on filth , their body can become a vehicle for diseases and is known to spread salmonella bacteria that scurry around your kitchen surfaces or sneak inside your cabinets.
Cockroaches in your restaurant?
Why do we absolutely have to exterminate them? Not only are cockroaches a health hazard, but if you run a restaurant, business or hotel, the sight of cockroaches can seriously damage your reputation with customers. Even though cockroach infestations are more down to bad luck than dirt, if people see cockroaches they will assume that you are not paying enough attention to cleanliness and hygiene.
What to do if you have cockroaches?
Lifespan of a cockroach?
Cockroaches begin life as eggs, which females lay in clusters of up to 50 in a bag called an ootheca. They normally set up a nest in a sheltered area, although some types of cockroaches may carry around the egg case until they hatch.
The eggs incubate for about 2-3 months, then young wingless cockroaches called nymphs emerge. As the cockroach grows, it sheds its skin (also known as molting) and continues to do so throughout its life.
What attracts cockroaches?
Cockroaches are known to be able to feed on almost anything, including decaying plant matter, leather, glue, fabric, soap, and even toothpaste. They will also be attracted to common food items, especially those stored in pantries. They also like sweet or starchy foods.
Contrary to popular belief, cockroaches are not necessarily attracted to unsanitary spaces. However, leaving crumbs and food scraps around your space can make a cockroach infestation worse.
How to prevent cockroaches from invading your home?
Make sure your home’s doors and windows are properly sealed and any cracks or openings are repaired. While cockroaches can eat almost anything, you can help minimize an infestation by keeping your space free of crumbs, rotting food, and debris. Don’t let dirty dishes pile up, take out the trash regularly, and clean up spills and food scraps promptly.
You can also take steps to reduce the humidity in your home to make it less desirable for cockroaches. Install dehumidifiers, fix leaky faucets and pipes, and make sure all your closets are dry.
Our cockroach disinsection service provides you with all these means to search for, find and eliminate cockroaches in your home, office or business.

Cockroaches are common household pests
They can be a nuisance as they contaminate food and can also cause allergies and asthma. Some people are also afraid of them because cockroaches can carry diseases. But is it really dangerous to have cockroaches at home?
Cockroaches are attracted to warm, humid environments
They are often found in kitchens and bathrooms. They can enter your home through cracks and crevices or even on used furniture or boxes. Once inside, they can reproduce quickly and you’ll soon have an infestation on your hands.
One of the biggest dangers of cockroaches is that they can contaminate your food. They walk around all day and pick up all kinds of bacteria, which they then pass onto your food when they come into contact with them. This can lead to food poisoning or other gastrointestinal issues. Cockroaches can also trigger allergies and asthma attacks in people who are sensitive to them.
Does the cockroach transmit diseases?
Another concern is that cockroaches can transmit diseases. They have been linked to diseases such as dysentery, cholera and typhoid fever. However, it is important to note that these links are mainly established in studies carried out on cockroaches in developing countries, where the hygienic conditions are not as good as in developed countries such as Belgium. No cases of people contracting a fatal disease from a cockroach have been reported in Belgium.
Although cockroaches are certainly unpleasant, it is important to keep things in perspective. In developed countries like Belgium, the risk of getting sick from a cockroach is very low. However, if you have young children or someone with allergies or asthma in the home, it’s probably best to get rid of them as a precaution. If you think you have a cockroach problem, there are a number of solutions you can implement along with our pest control company that can help you get rid of them for good.
Cockroaches can carry diseases like salmonella, typhoid fever and gastroenteritis. Although these diseases are not usually spread by contact with cockroaches, they can still be transmitted if a cockroach contaminates your food or if you come into contact with its droppings. In some cases, these diseases can be fatal, so it is important to take steps to prevent cockroaches from entering your home.
Yes, it is dangerous to have cockroaches in your home, especially if you have children or pets. Cockroaches can cause allergies and asthma, contaminate food and spread disease. If you think you have a cockroach problem, contact immediately
