Cockroaches are resilient in part due to their ability to survive on a varied diet. This includes grease, faeces, paper, foul water matter and even each other – dead or alive. Legislative controls from the Kent HSE clearly detail that cockroaches are in no way acceptable in public environments and should be monitored and dealt with accordingly.
