Trusted environmentally-friendly experts in Pest Control for Plymouth, Devon and Cornwall.

Specialists in dealing with Cockroaches

Cockroaches tend to get associated with bad restaurants or foreign holidays, but they can take up residence anywhere. Once they appear, you need to get rid of them before they spread and you are facing an infestation.

Cockroaches look for shelter, warmth, food and water – conditions that are found in many Devon and Cornwall homes including across Plymouth, Exeter and the surrounding towns and villages.

Falcon Environmental Services are experts in removing cockroaches with our team of pest control experts working with domestic and commercial clients across Plymouth, Devon, Cornwall and the South West.

Read our cockroach facts with tips on what you should do if you find one or more in your home.

Where cockroach problems are found

Some species of cockroach prefer moist areas:

  • Under or around sinks, baths or toilets where there is a supply of water and somewhere dark to shelter
  • Behind dishwashers or washing machines – again, it is dark and damp
  • At the back of bathroom cabinets – especially those that have been undisturbed for some time.

Some species prefer warm areas:

  • Behind or under cookers, fridges, freezers or other kitchen appliances
  • Hiding in undisturbed kitchen or bathroom cabinets
  • The back of washing machines or tumble dryers. The dark and warm conditions are perfect for cockroaches to take refuge.

Common areas cockroaches are found:

  • Drains, pipes and plumbing
  • Basements and storage spaces (cockroaches will use paper and boxes as both food and shelters

There are various species of cockroaches all who need different conditions to survive. While some prefer warm and humid conditions, others can survive in cool and damp conditions.

Sometimes it is easier to spot the signs of cockroaches than the actual insect themselves as these creatures are nocturnal. The signs to watch out for are an unsightly smell, cockroach droppings and shed skins which are often found close to the location of the cockroaches.

If you think you may have a cockroach problem call our Falcon Environmental Services team as soon as possible on 01752 929292 and we will arrange to come and assess the problem and provide a solution to eradicate your Devon and Cornwall cockroach problem.

We had a great service from Falcon. They were efficient. Responsive and informative. Mo (Mohammad) was really friendly, kind, efficient and gave us great information that was really interesting. We had been struggling with a hornets nest, he advised it was the biggest he had seen. He was really kind and gave a great service and they have all gone now! I highly recommend Falcon and their team, from when I called up to the end result was 5*. Khara Pierre

I was recommended Falcon to remove a wasp nest from the fascia’s which turned out to be two nests. I can’t rate them highly enough and their quick response was thoroughly followed up until completely sorted. They are honest, friendly and reliable and I would not hesitate to recommend them. It is great to support local people who are good at their work and this is a team who really deserve exactly this. Thank you.
