German Cockroaches  are known carriers of diseases such as Salmonella, Dysentery and Gastroenteritis. Cockroach droppings have even been linked to increases in eczema and asthma

Since  they live in such close proximity to people, they contaminate food and surfaces, spreading disease. German Cockroaches are constantly breeding, the female carries 30-40 eggs in a case and can produce one egg case per month. They live up to a year and reach maturity in about 60 days.

The American Cockroach is 40mm long, usually reddish brown. The American cockroach prefers to breed in and around underground sewer facilities and utility networks from which they may venture out into other buildings. American cockroaches leave behind droppings in the dim areas in which they hide. These small droppings are blunt on the ends and have ridges on the sides.  Another sign of an American cockroach infestation is the presence of egg capsules, which are about 8 mm long and dark-colored. Egg capsules are sometimes glued to a surface near food sources, and can be found in basements, laundry rooms and kitchens, as well as behind appliances or underneath cabinets.are constantly breeding, the female carries 30-40 eggs in a case and can produce one egg case per month.

The Gisborne Cockroach is 20-45 mm usually dark brown with white black stripes on the side of its body from the head to about half way down. It can be told apart from the native bush cockroach by its more distinctive white bands and larger body. It has very prominent hind legs and its flattened body can squeeze through gaps less than two milimetres high. It is harmless—unlike German or American cockroaches, it does not spread disease, nor can it fly. It typically doesn’t invade food supplies, unless they’re decaying. It prefers to stay outside under bark or wood chips, however will come inside if it’s wet or too hot
