    Cockroaches

    There are Two common types of cockroaches in the UK, although it’s not uncommon to find other types.

    German cockroaches are well-known indoor cockroaches  with a distribution that is world-wide. Adults are easily recognized by their light brown or tan coloration with two black horizontal stripes located on the pronotum immediately behind the head, and growing to a length of 13-16 mm. The much smaller young, or nymphs, are darker, almost black in color, also with the black stripes behind the head.

    Oriental Cockroaches

    Shiny black to a dark reddish-brown color, oriental cockroaches are  a pest invader that most frequently gains entry beneath the thresholds of doors, through open doors or gaps beneath siding, even following utility lines, pipes, open drains or sewers into a structure or home. The adults of the oriental cockroach are very different in appearance. The smaller adult  male oriental cockroaches, reaching only a length of 25 mm, can be identified by the presence of three-quarter-length wings, leaving the last few abdominal segments exposed. The larger adult  female oriental roaches, reaching a length of 32 mm, on the other hand, lack wings altogether, having only large wing pads that cover the first couple of segments of the body.

    There are many ways to combat cockroaches Offshore, commercially or domestic. Global can help with your needs.

    Ants

    Arachnids

    Other arthropods, the arachnids (spiders, ticks, mites, scorpions) and the Myriapods (centipedes) are all wingless so only move around by crawling. They are characterised by having two body sections, the cephalothorax (fused head and thorax) and abdomen with eight legs. Ticks and mites have a similar life cycle to insects, with egg, larva, nymph and adult stages. Spiders and scorpions produce eggs and progress through larval stages in the egg, hatching as small immature adults that have to go through several moults to grow to the adult size. These are included with the crawling insects for convenience.
